  • large skillet
  • large mixing bowl
  • oven


  • 1 recipe of AIP Biscuits baked
  • 1 pound ground pork or turkey thigh
  • 2 cups broth , warm
  • 1 large onion peeled and diced
  • 1 large apple peeled and diced
  • 5 stalks celery diced
  • 1 cup cranberries roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup dates pits removed and diced
  • 1/2 cup bacon fat melted (or coconut oil, duck fat or avocado oil)
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary or powdered dried rosemary


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a 9" by 13" casserole dish, or similar size. Set aside.
  • Heat 2 tablespoons of the bacon grease (or preferred fat) in large skillet. Add onions, celery and 1/2 teaspoon sea salt. Cook over medium heat until softened and slightly browned, about 10 minutes. Stir in apples. Remove to extra large mixing bowl with slotted spoon, and set aside.
  • While onions sauté, place baked biscuits on a large cutting board. Use a sharp knife to cut each biscuit into 6 pieces. Set aside.
  • Add ground meat to the same pan (as the onions were cooked in) with the remaining 1 teaspoon sea salt. Cook over medium heat, breaking up meat in pan. After most of the meat is broken up, add herbs and spices: ginger, sage, thyme and rosemary. Cook meat until the pink is just gone, about 8 to 10 minutes. Turn off heat.
  • Transfer cooked meat to extra large mixing bowl with onion mixture. Add the remaining ingredients in the following order: remaining bacon fat, warm broth, biscuit pieces, cranberries and dried fruit. Stir together gently but thoroughly.
  • Pour stuffing into greased casserole dish. Spread out and smooth top. Bake in preheated oven about 35 to 40 minutes, until golden brown and toasty all over. Remove from oven, and serve.
