Love stuffing…but not feeling stuffed? Try this lightened-up version of Scottish stuffing, which uses fiber-filled oats instead of refined white bread, from Darci Bos of Lebanon, Tennessee. The best part: It practically cooks itself!

For the Stuffing

    • 2 teaspoons olive oil
    • ½ cup chopped sweet onion
    • ½ cup chopped celery
    • 2 cups old fashioned oats
    • ¾ cup low-sodium chicken broth
    • ½ cup water
    • 1 tablespoon sage
    • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

For the Gravy

  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon oat flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Coat a medium skillet with olive oil. Cook onion and celery on medium heat for about 5 minutes. Pour into crockpot.

Add oats, broth, water, sage and Italian seasoning to crockpot and stir well to moisten. Set crockpot to high, put lid on and cook for 1 to 2 hours. Stir on occasion to prevent the bottom from burning.

About 10 minutes before the stuffing is done (it’s done when all the both has been soaked up), heat broth and flour over medium heat to make gravy. Add pepper and salt to taste.
