Serves: 12 servings
  • 1 ¼ cup ground yellow cornmeal
  • ⅓ cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup nonfat greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 tablespoon agave
  • ¼ cup egg whites
  • ½ cup milk
  • 4 slices center cut bacon
  • ½ onion, finely chopped
  • 2 stalks celery, finely chopped
  • 1 small apple, finely chopped
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Dash ground pepper
  • ⅓ cup craisins
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped sage
  • 1 can low sodium chicken broth
  1. Prepare the stuffing: Heat oven to 375 degrees. For the cornbread, combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. Combine the wet ingredients in another bowl. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and stir lightly until combined. Coat a tin foil lined baking sheet or a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray. Spread the batter into the dish. Bake for 30 minutes until golden brown.
  2. Prepare the mix-ins: While cornbread is baking, prepare the rest of the ingredients. In a large sauté pan, cook the bacon over medium heat until crispy. Place bacon on a paper towel to soak up the grease. Then, chop the bacon into small bits. In the same pan used for the bacon, add the onions, celery, and apple, cooking on low-medium heat. Sprinkle with salt and ground pepper. Saute for about 3 minutes until soft. Add the cranberries and sage and cook for another 2 minutes.
  3. Bake the stuffing: Once cornbread is cool, slice it into ½” cubes. In a large bowl, combine the cornbread cubes, bacon bits, and cranberry apple mixture. Pour the chicken broth over the mixture little by little, stirring in between pours. Coat a casserole dish with cooking spray. Spread the stuffing evenly into the pan. Pop in the oven and bake for about 20 minutes or until the top is golden brown and slightly crispy.
