We never stuffed the bird, but still called it stuffing! lol haha The gravy really isn't that bad in calories. It's the creamy gravies that get you. But the traditional turkey gravy is actually very very few calories.

Ann, You cut a lot of calories passing by the stuffing and gravy. If I had to choose between 1/2 cup of mashed potatoes and stuffing - it would be the potatoes. emoticon

My DH is the one that does the turkey and he's the one that likes stuffing/dressing or what ever he buys in a box. I don't like stuffing/dressing although we did make one in the low fat cooking class some time ago that I did like. I believe it had fruit in it. Probably apples. DH did buy a fresh turkey breast last night and I'm sure he got a box of something for 'his' stuffing/dressing. Also he likes gravy and I don't do gravy. See how I cut calories.

When DH and I first got married and for years I made a stuffing but I guess it really was a dressing as I cooked it in a casserole dish. I made it with bread cut up, onions, Italian Sausage, Linguisa (Portugese Sausage), Onions, Celery and cut up mushrooms and put seasoning in it and melted butter. I guess someday I will have to see how it comes out with gluten-free bread. I am not sure if I can get Linguisa here in Arizona. Cosco's had it for a while but we are not members so I have to ask my friend who is if she has seen it lately.

My mother used to stuff the turkey and I do not ever remember anyone getting sick.

Sarah, Thank You for starting this post---I think it is interesting to see what traditions we all have.

GOD BLESS!
Louise

Mom always stuffed the turkey with the dried bread crumbs, celery & onions and herbs. That's my favorite. I have tried other stuffings - mainly when I was younger and more adventurous. Nowadays I do dressing- turkey roasts faster and less concern about bacteria although I have to say no one every got sick from the stuffing over the years. emoticon

Which is it at your house?

My family always does dressing. We never stuffed so we always called it dressing. We
had cornbread dressing and oyster dressing with our turkeys.

What are your stuffing/dressing traditions?
