The Paleo Secret Holiday “Paleo” Stuffing (Paleo/GF)

The Paleo Secret Holiday "Paleo" Stuffing (Paleo/GF)

We were pleasantly surprised with this “paleo” stuffing… a nice alternative to traditional stuffing.

It’s actually quite delicious and makes for a great leftover breakfast. I think we will start making this more often… even after the holidays have come and gone!



  • 1 lb ground pork
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 5 stalks celery chopped
  • 1 sweet potato
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 Tbsp fresh sage
  • 1 Tbsp fresh thyme
  • 2 Tbsp fresh rosemary
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 turkey drippings or bone broth

Cube sweet potato and cook in oven at 400 for about 20-30 minutes and let it cool. Another option is to cook the sweet potato whole and let it cool, peel it and then cube it. Set aside. Brown ground pork while adding herbs and salt. While pork is browning, sautee onions, celery and garlic in butter until soft. Using a slotted spoon remove pork. Combine pork, onion/celery mixture and sweet potatoes in a 8×8 baking dish. Whisk eggs together and add drippings or broth to mixture. Pour over pork mixture and mix together. Bake at 350 deg for about 30 min until starting to get brown on top. Serve and enjoy!!

Side note: you could also try using Granny smith apples instead of sweet potatoes and adding them to your onion and celery mixture. I thought that sounded good as well!!

    For anyone potato intolerant like myself, I bet butternut squash would be a good alternative!
