  • 0 3/4 cup, chopped Onions
  • 4 Atkins Low Carb Wheat Bread
  • 0 1/3 cup Wild Rice
  • 2 1/2 cup Tap Water
  • 12 oz, raw (yield after cooking) Italian Sausage

  • 3 stalk, medium (7-1/2" - 8" long) Celery
  • 0 1/2 cup Parsley

Use the Atkins recipe to make Atkins Cuisine Bread.
  1. Combine wild rice, 1 1/2 cups of the water and a generous pinch of salt in a small saucepan; bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer until tender, 40 to 45 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  2. Heat oven to 350°F. Set bread cubes on a jelly-roll pan in a single layer. Bake, stirring once, until crispy, 10 to 14 minutes. Transfer to large bowl.
  3. Meanwhile, remove sausage from casing; crumble into a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook, stirring frequently to break up clumps, until cooked through and lightly browned, about 12 minutes. Add to bread.
  4. Return skillet to medium heat; add butter. When melted, add celery and white onion; cook, stirring frequently, until tender, about 10 minutes.
  5. Add to bread mixture, then stir in parsley, cherries, poultry seasoning, pepper and wild rice. Mix well. Stir in 1 cup of the chicken broth; add more if the stuffing still looks dry.
  6. Transfer the stuffing to a large baking dish. Cover with foil and bake 30 minutes, then uncover and continue baking until lightly browned and heated through, 15 minutes longer.
