So I had a little holiday hiccup there but today we’re back with our Weekly Recipe Round-up 4th Edition! I’m a little overwhelmed by all the recipe writing talent out there. I only hope to become half as talented as the MANY bloggers and authors I’ve found. Okay praise mostly done now. On to the food!

For Thanksgiving 2012, my cousin’s then fiancé made this ridiculously good stuffing. I’m honestly not sure where the recipe originated so I’ll attribute the creation to him. Thanks to Jose Buitrago for this awesome stuffing that just so happens to be Paleo!!
4 Plantains grated
1lb Grassfed Ground Beef browned
1 pk Uncured Bacon cooked as you would normally
1 Yellow Onion chopped
1 Red Bell Pepper chopped
6 Garlic Cloves minced
½ cup Cilantro chopped
¼ cup Sliced Green Olives
2 tbsp Adobo Seasoning
Here’s a natural option for this seasoning you can try http://www.paleoeffect.com/recipes/paleo-adobo-paleo-effect/
Onion Powder to taste (I probably used about 1 tbsp)
Garlic Powder to taste (I probably used about 1-1 ½ tbsp.)
Black Pepper to taste (I probably used about 1 tbsp)
1 tbsp Oregano
After donning gloves (because Plantains can turn your hands black if handled without them), peel and grate the plantains. Then, brown the beef and cook the bacon as you normally would. Set the oven to preheat at 350. Combine all ingredients into a 9x13” baking dish (or whatever size is available to you though cooking times will vary). Pop the dish in the oven for approximately 30 minutes. Once the top is golden brown and you can see juices bubbling all around the sides through the dish, you’ll know it’s done.
This dish is so versatile and any additional ingredients that sound good to you can be added. Try it at least once this way before you decide. Happy Holidays ya’ll!!

As some of you may know, today marks my final day of the 21 day Sugar Detox created by Diane Sanfilippo of balancedbites.com. In honor of her and the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, I highly encourage you to check out her FREE Holiday Recipe Ebook (link at the end of this post). I downloaded it the day it came out and it’s great!! The recipes I’ve included today will be Paleo versions of all of my favorite dishes at Thanksgiving. I’m trying very hard to finish this edition with 21DSD friendly recipes for those of you who may start the detox soon or are currently on it. So, without further adieu…
