Easy Recipe: Grain-Free Sausage & Apple Holiday Dressing (or Stuffing)

This year, my friend and I cooked Thanksgiving dinner together and she was kind enough to make her stuffing without bread for me, and it was fantastic! What’s great about having friends who understand that your choices are yours and that they don’t need to follow them if they don’t want to is that they can eventually also see how easy it is to just avoid certain foods. I didn’t even really mention it to her, but she said “well, I can just make the stuffing and leave out the bread for yours.” YES! Exactly! I can enjoy all of the same flavors and stuffing awesomeness without the digestive discomfort and brain fog I used to experience with a grain-based version.

I don’t think the recipe itself is highly calculated, just whatever proportions you find tasty will be just fine.

(this really is all okay to make by-taste, all measurements here are approximate)


Note: If you can’t find a good quality sausage in a store, you can make it by simply adding the following spices to 1lb of ground pork or chicken before browning it: 1Tbsp garlic powder, 1Tbsp onion powder, 1Tbsp paprika, 1Tbsp ground fennel seed, 1tsp ground black pepper, 1tsp sea salt, dash of cayenne, 3 or so leaves of chopped fresh sage.




Enjoy & be well!
