Not long ago I spotted Paleo Stuffing in the hot bar at Whole Foods. Of course it piqued my curiosity because I had never heard of Paleo stuffing. Luckily Whole Foods posts their ingredients.
It turns out Paleo Stuffing is meat based, which sounds a little weird, but is actually pretty good.
Their Paleo Stuffing wasn’t entirely SCD friendly so I decided to make my own version that would fit the bill.
I didn’t stuff a turkey or chicken with it, but it worked as a baked dish. It might be a little weird to have a meat-based stuffing when you’re already eating turkey (or some other kind of meat), but the flavors are all there and that’s what makes this good.
The cranberries and pecans give it that extra pop of holiday flavor, while the spices add just the right amount of savory goodness. The cool thing about it is that it does work as a main dish too. We’ve all been in that situation where we discover the turkey (ham, chicken, or whatever) is not SCD-friendly.
I also fried up some of the leftover for breakfast the next day and I thought it was even better. All those flavors had really settled in.
