Stuffing can be a caloric nightmare if you aren’t careful. This version, with a variety of onions, dried figs, prosciutto and wheat germ, doesn’t compromise taste. It’s bursting with flavor, but won’t load up the calories on that special day.

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large sweet onion, chopped (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 cup shallots, chopped
  • 3 stalks celery, diced
  • 1 pound cremini mushrooms, sliced
  • 7 slices 100 percent whole wheat bread, toasted and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1/2 cup Kretschmer Original Toasted Wheat Germ
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
  • 3 fresh sage leaves, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1 Granny Smith apple, cored chopped
  • 6 dried figs, chopped (about 1/4 cup)
  • 3/4 cup low sodium chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons parsley, chopped
  • 2 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto, cut into thin strips

1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Heat large sauté pan. Add olive oil and when heated add onion, garlic, shallots and celery. Cook on medium high, stirring often, 5 minutes or until vegetables are softened. Add mushrooms and cook 5 more minutes. Stir in thyme and sage. Add salt and pepper to taste.

2. In a 13 x 9 x 2-inch oven-proof pan, add bread. Stir in onion and mushroom mixture, wheat germ, apples and figs until evenly distributed in pan. Pour chicken broth evenly over the top.

3. Sprinkle parsley and prosciutto strips on top. Bake uncovered 45 minutes.
