    Assorted Thanksgiving recipes?

    Primal Fuel
    It's just my boyfriend and me, which is fine, and I don't do the whole spread, but we like to have a turkey and a few things, just so we can pig out. And have leftovers for a week. I've ordered a small (as if 10-12 lbs is small) pastured turkey, but I'm really missing stuffing. I've found this recipe Gluten Free Cranberry Apple Stuffing Recipe - Elana's Pantry which I'm thinking of reducing and modifying a bit and this crust recipe Paleo Pecan Tart Crust Recipe - A Gluten Free Pie Crust - Elana's Pantry looks amazing. I'm thinking about doing a sweet potato filling. If anyone has any other paleo-ish recipes they'd like to share with the group that would be cool. I make sauteed brussels sprouts all the time, so may make something else instead. I've been eating the occasional white potato or rice lately so may go there. OMG, potatoes roasted in duck fat is insane, as are home made french fries in lard.

    best paleo stuffing recipe I've found is this:
    The Food Lovers' Primal Palate: Paleo Thanksgiving Turkey and Stuffing

    I'll be making cranberry sauce from scratch for the first time this year (excited!), and our spread will include roast root veggies from Everyday Paleo, Parsnip Turnip mash from Make It Paleo (or Paleo Comfort Foods, I forget which book it's in), veggie tray, and THE BIRD (cuz the bird is the word )
    And of course dessert, but those will be more on the gluten free side rather than primal. Chebe bread mixes will be making a big appearance there I think, cuz it makes awesome pies and junk.

    Oh, that does look good! I may have to save it for another day though, as I'm kinda craving a more traditional bready stuffing. I just placed a big meat order so I will be getting some ground pork on tuesday, should I change my mind.

    I've decided to compromise and make gluten free desserts since we are having non-primal guests. As for the turkey we are getting a small pastured turkey and I like to debone it (removing the breast bone, back and wings) in advance and make a rich bone broth to make a killer gravy which I thicken with tapioca starch if necessary after reducing it. The turkey cooks much faster and it's so much easier to slice w/o the bones. I also brine the turkey. I'll probably be making a stuffing similar to the one Dr. Bork posted.

    I know some people are nuts for parsnip mash as a replacement for mashed taters... But I'm crazy for mashed cauli. Mashed cauli will rate a prime spot on my holiday table in a way mashed taters never did.
    Sorry not to be able to help on the stuffing. I'm going both southern and non-primal on that with a cornbread dressing, to appease traditionalists and myself. A serving of that along with an otherwise primal feast -- definitely my 20% for the day. Pumpkin pie, easy to pass up. Cornbread dressing based on my mom's recipe? Not so easy. Worth a little discomfort for the feast.

    I want this...


    ... normal sides will be made, garlic smash potatoes and turkey gravy for the other people... asparagus and green beans which I can eat... salad... whatever the other folks cook that I won't be eating.

    And a freaking cheesecake since I know there won't be anything else that is a 'treat' that I can eat available.

    Normally I'm all over mashed cauli, but we have it pretty regularly (cauli thrown in ninja with sour cream and parmesan). Parsnip turnip mash is a total treat for us

    one primal dessert you can do is dates stuffed with mascarpone and candied pecans. Everyone will be dazzled cuz it looks & tastes fancy, but only takes a couple of mins to throw together

    Leave out the bread stuffing, and this is pretty damned primal:

    HA!!!
    Joanie brought out the EPICMEALTIME!

    I really hope MusclesGlasses is in this one.

    Ok... not enough MusclesGlasses... but I like his GF too so that worked!
    And I decided that my bacon lattice shrouded turkey needs a proper bourbon maple GLAZE!
    It's only one day a year dammit. And GOOD bourbon and real maple syrup are both pretty primal approved.

    Oh... and I want a fruit tray... with apples on it... with cock sauce! (aka Sriracha!) Because that will freak people out, but it's so delicious.

    HELLO! I usually drape my turkey with bacon but that's just brilliant!
