Recipes for Thanksgiving week 11/20/17

Happy Monday! With this week being a crazy dinner schedule with Thanksgiving and traveling, I am going to do something different and instead of a weekly menu share some of my favorite healthy Thanksgiving recipes.

What’s Thanksgiving without biscuits or rolls! You can still have them & stick to Paleo with these:

Paleo Honey Biscuits from Against All Grain

  • 1 1/2 T Coconut flour
  • 1 3/4 C Almond flour
  • 1/4 t salt
  • 1/2 t baking soda
  • 1/4 c coconut oil, melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 T honey
  • 2 T almond or cashew milk
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Combine flours, salt and soda
  3. In a separate bowl- cream to oil, eggs, honey and milk
  4. Add dry and wet ingredients and stir until combined
  5. Set parchment paper on cookie sheet
  6. Make dough into balls and flatten slightly
  7. Bake 15 minutes at 350 degrees

Another roll recipe is this:

Pale Bacon chive Sweet Potato Biscuits– (that’s right I said BACON!!)

  • 1 large sweet potato (2 cups mashed)
  • 3 eggs, whisked
  • 6-8 strips of bacon, save left over fat
  • 3 TBL coconut flour
  • 3-4 TBL chives, thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 t garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Cook sweet potatoes, peel and mash- let them cool (this is so the eggs don’t scramble)
  2. While that cools- cook the bacon & save the bacon fat
  3. Add eggs to the sweet potato once it has cooled then mix together
  4. Then add the bacon fat and mix
  5. Dice the bacon and the chives, fold into to the mixture
  6. Line the backing sheet with parchment paper and drop biscuits onto it.
  7. Back at 375 degrees for 22-27 minutes

Sweet Potato Casserole:

  • 2 C vegetable broth
  • 5 large sweet potatoes
  • 1/4 cup grass fed butter or ghee
  • 3 TBL maple syrup, divided
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 2 tsp cinnamon divided
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • salt, to taste

For the topping

  • 1 C walnuts chopped
  • 1/2 C unsweetened coconut flakes chopped
  • 1/3 C melted grass fed butter or ghee
  • 1/3 C coconut sugar
  1. Peel the sweet potatoes and cut into 1-3 inch cubes, put into crockpot
  2. Add broth, splat the butter on top cook on high for 3 hours
  3. Then mash the potatoes, add eggs, vanilla, syrup, cinnamon and nutmeg- stir to combine
  4. Make the topping by simply mixing the topping ingredients together & sprinkle over the sweet potatoes
  5. Cook on hight for 2 hours

If you have never made Cranberry sauce from scratch- I highly recommend it. First of all it smells amazing, it doesn’t take very long and there is something very satisfying about those whole cranberries turning into sauce!

Paleo Cranberry Sauce:

  • 12 oz fresh cranberries
  • 3/4 C fresh orange juice
  • 1/2 C maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of nutmeg
  1. Put cranberries into a medium sauce pan
  2. Add the maple syrup, orange juice and spices- cook over a low heat, stirring occasionally,until you can see the cranberries soften. (8-10 minutes)
  3. Then turn the heat up to medium or so and let it cook for a little while longer. The cranberries will start to burst open
  4. Continue cooking until the preferred consistency
  5. Refrigerate before serving

This was a recipe that I made the night before Thanksgiving last year & it was delicious!!

I noticed that PaleOMG has some brand spanking new Thanksgiving recipes. I haven’t tried these, but knowing her- they are amazing!!

Thanksgiving Maple Roasted Brussel Sprouts & Butternut Squash

No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake

Hopefully I get to try those out this year!!

 

I think a good Crockpot is a MUST for a day like Thanksgiving! This is the one I use & it is PRIME through Amazon so FREE 2 day shipping!! 

What’s on your Thanksgiving Menu? I’d love to hear some new ideas!! Also: what are you Thankful for this year? I am Thankful for health (last year at this time my son was really sick & now he’s a normal teenager:), family and friends who are there for you no matter what AND this BLOG & the people who take the time to stop by and read what I have to say.
