Oh look, another recipe you might have wanted before the holidays. Oh well. If you’re on the whole 30 train, this might actually be perfect timing for you.
Honestly, the internet is a little crowded with Paleo stuffing recipes, so I figured it might be overwhelming to have yet another one fighting for your attention during the holidays, so I really had your best interest in mind when I saved this. Besides, this is a truly healthy recipe, so it’s perfect if you jumped on the healthy eating bandwagon.

I was on the AIP diet through the holidays so I’m honestly feeling like having a big unhealthy week sometime soon, but I can hear my gut begging me to reconsider as I type this, so I’ll keep you posted on that.
Anyways, this whole 30 stuffing was at the top of my to-make list after weeks of traveling for work and the holidays. I made it to eat on Thanksgiving but myself instead of making a big feast, and I’ve been wanting it again since. Plus I wanted a comfort food-esque option that would make my gut happy and last through lots of lunch leftovers. Soo glad I thought to make this again—it’s really a meal of its own right and not a side.
I’m curious to see how you like this—I think I need to work on more easy casserole recipes like this that can serve as easy lunches.
OH I forgot to tell you—I got an Instant Pot! Now I just need to learn how to make something other than broth in it. But that’s a story for another time I guess.

Tips for making this Paleo Stuffing:

Use pre-riced cauliflower. I love the frozen bags at Trader Joe’s—they make life so easy!
You don’t have to make this with meat, but I really think ground pork is the way to go. It adds a great flavor and can even make this into a full meal by itself.
