This recipe is fairly simple but it does require a dish that can go from stovetop to oven. I love my Lodge Pan and my Le Creuset Pans. These are the only pans I have had in my kitchen for a number of years and they both work really well for this specific recipe.
The secret to a good stuffing is using good quality sausage that you know you like. I have used a mild Italian as well as a sage and onion sausage that I got directly from the farmer in this recipe and both worked well. To keep it paleo and whole30 make sure that the sausage is free from sugars, fillers and wheat!
Reasons to make this stuffing:
a. It’s paleo and whole30 compliant. (duh!)
b. It’s pretty easy and quick to throw together and bring to your family gathering
c. It’s delicious (yes even for those non whole30/paleo people!)
e. It’s filled with chopped apples, dates and walnuts (who doesn’t love apples, dates and walnuts?!)
f. It’s Thanksgiving!!!
