Sausage stuffing

Think twice before stuffing your face with this ominous mixture. It could be harboring a ton of unhealthy foods. One recipe uses a pound of sweet Italian sausage, a stick of butter, a cup of toasted pecans, and maple syrup. Generic sausage stuffing has 345 calories, 235 from fat, setting you back about 26 grams of fat altogether.

But as with many holiday meals, there are healthy alternatives, such as our stuffing made with cornbread and cranberries, with only 9 grams of total fat.
