Apple Cider Gravy
Very Good 4.3/5
(17 ratings)

Gravy gets a bad rap, but this tasty sauce can be made with almost no fat.

Very Good 4.6/5
(12 ratings)

For perfect results try using a V-rack in your roasting pan or roast the turkey on a bed of vegetables. Once the fat from the turkey melts, it falls to the bottom of the roasting pan. When that happens, the bottom quarter of the bird does not roast--it braises in its own juices. The vegetables or V-rack prevents this from happening.

Mini Apple Tarts
Very Good 4.3/5
(83 ratings)

Instead of a whole pie, try making bite-size tarts. The diminutive desserts cook quicker and are automatically portion controlled. Plus, they're easier to make for a crowd, and there's no need for a fork and plate.

Creamy Corn Pudding
O.K. 2.0/5
(4 ratings)

Corn pudding is a Southern favorite, but boy is it heavy. I lightened it up and pumped it up with vegetables. This dish has 4g fiber per serving!

Vegetable and Fruit Stuffing
Very Good 4.2/5
(39 ratings)

Whole wheat bread gives this side staying power. The fruits and vegetables bulk up the dish, so a little goes a long way. A bit of turkey bacon adds another layer of flavor without adding many calories.
