Clean and Lean Turkey Stuffing

Clean and Lean Turkey Stuffing

At Christmas time the stuffing is always such a highlight on the table, its a recipe that's gone through the generations, I even managed to incorporate it into my weekly meal preps minus the bread and bacon, the spirit never leaves the tastes of this dish and memories of racing to the table to see who gets the first spoon and critique of the dish!

  • 1 kg mince beef.
  • 1 kg mince pork.
  • 1/2 tbsp coconut oil.
  • 1 large onion / diced.
  • 2 rashes bacon / diced.
  • 3 stalks organic celery and leaves / diced.
  • 2 hard boiled egg (diced).
  • 2 cups fresh bread crumbs / I use sour dough, you can leave this out if you do not eat grains or bread of any sort.
  • Salt + Herbs - 1 cup each of FRESH Thyme, Rosemary and Sage.


  1. Melt 1/4 tbsp coconut oil and cook the mince beef and pork - once cooked transfer into a sieve to drain excess water than put it in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Melt the other 1/4 tbsp of coconut oil and cook the onions, celery and bacon, cook until the onions are transparent then turn off the heat.
  3. Add the onion mixture to the mince and add the bread crumbs, diced egg, herbs and mix well tocombine, add enough salt to match your palate.

The stuffing tastes amazing a day after being prepared, it can be used as a turkey or chicken stuffing or as I use it as part of my weekly meal prep meals.
