Chestnut Turkey Stuffing

I got this from from Don, on the Paleofood list.

"You might try using chestnuts as part of a stuffing for roasted poultry, particularly turkey. My Grandmother always added chestnuts to her stuffing. It adds a very pleasant nuttiness to the stuffing. Cut the chestnuts in
half and boil them in water until tender then remove shells and inner peel or boil in the intact shells with a cross hatch cut in the flat bottom to aid peeling. Cool and crumble the pieces into a large mixing bowl. Add
sauteed ground meats and sausage, sauteed onions or shallots or garlic, .... egg and herbs and seasonings of your choice. Blend well and stuff."

Turkey Stuffing

We just made stuffed mushrooms that were delicious!
You can use this to stuff a turkey or serve as an accompaniment. The following serves about four people. (Although my son ate it all in one sitting!) Just quintuple the amounts to serve 20 as a side dish.

Saute six bacon (no sugars added) strips. Remove the bacon strips and set aside. To the bacon drippings in the pan, add:

  • 1 shallot (minced)
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup (approx.) pecan meal
  • 1 pkg mushrooms (chopped)

    Saute the above for several minutes. Then add 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
    and the bacon (crumbled).

    Combine this mixture with 2 more Tbs of butter (optional).

    Place in baking dish and top with grated cheddar, warm in hot oven.

    mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. (okay, so I AM a vegetarian but my son said it was amazing!! ...and despite two decades of no meat, I was actually tempted.)

    As far as cranberry sauce: I am certain you can make something delicious by simmering whole cranberries, with orange juice, a bit of orange rind, and a generous amount of honey. Perhaps try adding a bit of coconut and chopped walnuts. YUM!! I bet it far surpasses any canned stuff you'll ever have.

    Bon appetit.

Chicken or Turkey Stuffing

This is how I make my stuffing, and I think it's really good. It is a version of the stuffing in the book, but I make it somewhat different. I don't have exact measurements. Just add ingredients to taste.
  • White navy beans (soaked overnight, drained, and rinsed)
  • onion chopped up
  • green pepper chopped up
  • diced celery
  • diced apple
  • raisins
  • the needles from one bunch of fresh Rosemary
  • hazelnuts
  • mushrooms
  • salt
  • a tiny bit of tarragon if desired
  • orange zest of desired
    Just mix all of these ingredients and stuff inside of a chicken or turkey. Even though it's not the classic bread stuffing, it's really delicious, especially with the rosemary, and smothered in gravy. Enjoy!
