    KateL's Note:

    Great tasting stuffing with very low sodium, suitable for heart patients, but anyone can enjoy this. Good texture, too. From Donald Gazzaniga's "The No-Salt, Lowest-Sodium Cookbook." This is only a challenge to "the slowest choppers in the Western Hemisphere" who don't have a food processor handy. Anyone else can slash my preparation time. To keep the sodium very low, it is important to make your own very-low sodium bread, such as Italian Milano Sourdough Bread from the same book. In a pinch, use a low-sodium white bread, some groceries stock it.

    Serves: 12



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 1/2 lbs italian milano sourdough bread, toasted and cubed
    • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
    • 2 cups onions, chopped
    • 2 cups celery, chopped
    • 2 cups mushrooms, chopped
    • 2 medium apples, medium to large apples, chopped
    • 1 cup dry-roasted pecans, chopped
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground sage

    • 1 teaspoon ground pepper
    • 2 teaspoons garlic powder with parsley (Lawry's California Blend)
    • 1 cup apple juice
    • 1/2 cup dried apricot, chopped (optional)


    1. 1
      Bake Italian Milano Sourdough Bread in bread machine. Slice ten 3/4- to 1-inch slices from loaf. Toast each side on an ungreased baking sheet in your oven under the broiler until just golden brown. Cool and cut into small 1/2-inch cubes. You'll get about 16 cubes from each slice of bread.

    3. 3
      Saute onion, celery, mushrooms, apples, and pecans together.

      When ready to bake, put mixture into lightly oil-sprayed baking dish (9 x 13) and bake at 325 degrees Fahrenheit for 20-30 minutes. If it's been refrigerated, heating time will take longer.

      Wow, you wouldn't even know this was a low-sodium dish. It tasted every bit as good as my family's traditional Thanksgiving stuffing recipe. It's very tasty, and the combination of apples mushrooms, nuts and various spices made it a good side dish for the roast chicken that it was served with. I made this for Please Review My Recipe tag game, and I'm glad I did.
