Breadless Stuffing

By Marcus | In Recipes | on November 28, 2012

This Thanksgiving, I decided to try my hand at a few holiday favorites and use Paleo-friendly recipes. One item I have really missed is stuffing. (Also bizarrely known to some people as dressing. These are probably the same weirdos that ask for a “pop” when they want a soda, but I digress…) Growing up, my dad would make stuffing that would actually be stuffed inside the turkey before cooking and would have a slightly crispy outer texture, a mushy interior filled with herbs but often quite salty.

I found an alternative from a site called The Mommypotamus (via Food Renegade). It is a base of celery, onion and apples mixed with almond meal, herbs and eggs that give the texture and taste I recall from years past, minus any carb or gluten hangover. My only substitution was that I swapped 3 teaspoons of Herbes de Provence for the sage/thyme/marjoram/rosemary that the original calls for. Just as pictured at that site, I too baked the entire mixture in one of my cast iron skillets. Check the original post for the full ingredient list and directions.

Since many people cook several of the same foods for Christmas dinner as they do at Thanksgiving, consider this alternative to your usual stuffing and see how you like it!

    Marcus brought this stuffing to our Thanksgiving dinner and it was delicious! Definitely a great stuffing alternative.

    @Marcus – You lived in Michigan, how did you not pick up the “pop” saying or use the term dressing?
