Thanksgiving Menu: Can you make a low-sodium bread stuffing?

I’m planning to make my own stuffing from scratch using a sodium-free whole wheat bread I found at Trader Joe’s recently.

The traditional Thanksgiving menu wouldn’t be the traditional menu without some sort of stuffing for the turkey. But pre-made stuffing mixes are loaded with sodium because they’re generally bread-based and most bread is high in sodium.

I bought some Stove Top stuffing that is labeled as low-sodium, but that’s a relative term. Half a cup of it contains 250 mgs of sodium. That’s only four ounces, I can’t imagine not wanting to eat more than that on Thanksgiving.

So I’m planning to make my own stuffing from scratch using a sodium-free whole wheat bread I found at Trader Joe’s recently. I’ve tried the bread by the slice, you can tell there’s no sodium because it really doesn’t taste like traditional bread, whole wheat or otherwise. But it is something baked, and it’s so hard to find low-sodium baked goods that I’m resigned to using it. I plan to mix it with apples and sage, celery, onions and a few other things (sodium free chicken stock for one). I’ll take pictures and let you know how it turns out.
