Paleo Thanksgiving Stuffing will be one of the best sides to your turkey this Thanksgiving! It’s a gluten, grain + dairy free stuffing made with simple and real ingredients. You’ll be shocked at how much it tastes like “real stuffing”… but healthier and better for you!

I don’t know about you, but stuffing is by far my favourite Thanksgiving dish!

Traditionally, my family prepares stuffing with bread, which really sucked when I stopped eating grains years ago. I refused to give up my favourite Thanksgiving side so instead, I created a stuffing recipe that’s not only grain free and healthy, but that my whole family enjoys too!

Why Paleo Thanksgiving Stuffing is so good

  • It tastes like “real” stuffing but is made with all healthy ingredients, like veggies and meat.
  • This healthy stuffing recipe is perfect with chicken or turkey, making it a great side dish for both weeknight dinners and Thanksgiving.
  • The ingredients are super versatile: you can swap out what you like and have.

Tips for this stuffing recipe

  • Save time by using a food processor to roughly chop all your veggies.
  • Replace dates with dried cranberries, if you prefer.
  • This healthy stuffing reheats well, so you can make it ahead of time and/or save the leftovers for a quick weekday meal.
  • You can make this entire paleo stuffing recipe in a large oven-proof skillet, or you can bake it in a casserole/baking dish as per my instructions.
  • Find ethically raised and quality sausage + bacon HERE.
