Sara’s Thanksgiving Stuffing (gluten free, dairy free, paleo-ish)

So here’s the deal.  I’m not a food blogger.  I don’t take fancy pictures and make neat little layouts for printing etc.   Usually, my food is inhaled before anyone (me) even thinks to document it on the ‘ol iPhone and share that sucker on all the social channels.   Sometimes.  But rarely.

This time, I just felt it necessary to graciously distribute my recipe.   Holidays are about helping the needy.  This is for humanity:

Sara’s Stuffing (GF, DF)

  • 1 pkg bacon
  • 1lb ground sausage
  • 3 sprigs sage
  • 1 white onion chopped
  • 8 carrots grated (or you can be lazy and buy the grated stuff)
  • 1/2 head of kale minced/chopped fine
  • 1/2 package of gluten free bread (your choice, most work very well) (cut in squares toasted)  <— note: not Paleo, and to be honest; this recipe works and still brings the amazing without it. OR you can use two packages of Simple Mills almond crackers (sea salt flavor) which is Paleo friendly.
  • bag of frozen cubed squash (optional, but I suggest you take it)
  • 2 organic bosc pears, peeled & sliced the way you want
  • 1 cup figs
  • 2 large pastured eggs
  • glorious amounts of garlic powder and cinnamon
basically: cook the meat (save the grease) and throw in a bowl.  Blend, chop, mince (whatever) & Squish it all up together, put in casserole dish, drizzle the bacon grease on top (no regrets) and bake that sumbitch.  Tip:  the figs mince up better if you throw them in the ninja with the onion.
*350 for about 45 minutes
I’m not about complications, or rigid step-by-step instructions.  If you’ve got a ninja, blender, or processor, then I recommend you just (1) cook the bacon and sausage simultaneously and (2)  throw the rest into one of the aforementioned thingies and then (3) squish together, dump in dish, bake.
I know recipes are a lot cooler when they come with glorious, colorful, vibrant photos photos but when we transitioned the website, we lost a lot of our images (which are on the other computer… which is currently kaput) and right now our placeholder website and its non-glorious recipe images will have to do. But trust me… its delicious.
Here’s a Paleo Thanksgiving food image, since you really really need one. Thanks to my favorite cartoonist, The Oatmeal.
