Abbey is back in this episode to share with you her personal recipe for a dairy free, high protein, healthy holiday stuffing that your family will love.
Abbey is joined in the kitchen by special guest Nikky Goncalves (watch her video here! https://youtu.be/jWkhWRA7fVg ) who runs the HealthNut Nutrition channel which you can find in the links below. In addition to assisting Abbey in constructing this fantastic stuffing she’s got a recipe of her own to share for rice pudding.
A big part of Abbey’s inspiration for her stuffing recipe comes from her frustration with typical holiday foods that taste delicious but are unfortunately carb bombs. To get started making this healthy holiday stuffing you will need to put a cooking pan on the stove on medium heat and put some olive oil in it. Add turkey sausage, or any other sausage you prefer, to the pan. Let this sausage brown cutting it into smaller pieces with your spatula as it does. Once your sausage is browned take it out of the pan and set it aside. Leave your pan on the burner and add your chopped Brussels sprouts, browning them as well. Once browned toss them into the bowl you put your sausage in.
Next you will add sliced mushrooms, chopped celery, garlic, and sage to your pan. Brown all this together as well making sure it’s thoroughly cooked. Now that you have all your ingredients cooked it’s time to assemble them. In the bowl full of your bread pieces pour in your chicken stock and your beaten eggs. Now add in your mushrooms, celery, pears, Brussels sprouts, sausage, and lastly pecans and cranberries. Mix this all together well and then put it in a casserole dish and flatten it out getting an even layer across the entire dish. Put it in the oven at 350′ for roughly 45 minutes. This will give the top a nice browning effect while keeping the interior still a bit moist. This is the ideal combination for any stuffing.
That completes this holiday stuffing recipe. Don’t forget to check out Nikky’s recipe for rice pudding over at her channel as it would be an excellent complement to any holiday dinner as well.
