thanksgiving stuffing recipe paleo

paleo cornbread stuffing

I grew up eating a cornbread stuffing every year and really until I went to college, I didn’t realize that you could have it any other way. This recipe is a two step process.  First you make the paleo cornbread and then you make the stuffing from it.  I like my dressing on the dry side – the better to smoother in gravy and cranberry sauce – but my husband was like not happy with it.  The next time I cut down the bake time and it was a good compromise.

    OH MY GOSH!!! Are you kidding me???!!! This is probably as close to my mom’s stuffing (without the actual grains) that I could get! I’m sooo making this for Thanksgiving this year (if not before)!!! I love jicama and what an interesting sweet flavor that will bring! :) My mother’s recipe also calls for turkey drippings and bacon! She also used biscuit crumbs mixed with the cornbread crumbs. And a can of cream of mushroom soup (blech!) which I will gladly leave out! LOL Thank you so much!!!! My family and I are LOVING your recipes! <3

    I’ve only ever eaten jicama raw. Does it really take that long to cook, or is it just supposed to be boiled for 60 seconds?
