Paleo Thanksgiving Rolls
- 1 1/2 cup almond meal
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- ¼ tsp salt
- 2 ½ tsp baking powder
- 4 beaten eggs
- 3/4 cup water
- 4 TBSP melted coconut oil
- 2 TBSP melted ghee
- ¼ tsp each of garlic, rosemary, thyme (adjust to your taste buds…I love savory so I go with more)
Mix the almond meal, coconut flour, salt, spices and baking powder. Beat in eggs, water, and coconut oil. Pour into greased or lined muffin pans. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes. Brush with melted ghee mixed with a little salt and garlic. Delicious!
- The turkey bits (neck, heart, liver, giblets)
- 1 TBSP ghee (for browning)
- 1/2 onion, chopped
- 1 bay leaf
- 1 tsp sage (or more if desired)
- 1 tsp rosemary
- 3 cloves of garlic crushed
- 2-5 cups bone broth
- turkey pan drippings
- 1/2 cup coconut milk
- salt and pepper to taste
- 3 TBSP arrowroot starch
To gauge how much bone broth to use, count your guests. Plan on 1/2 cup per guest and that’s how much broth you will need as the base of your gravy.
Melt the ghee in a pan on medium heat. Add the turkey bits and brown them for a few minutes. Next, add the chopped onion and crushed garlic and simmer until the onions soften, about five more minutes. Add the broth and bay leaf, and bring it to a gentle boil; reduce the heat to low and let it simmer while the turkey cooks (at least two hours).
After the turkey is done and resting, add your pan drippings to the broth and simmer until the turkey is carved and ready to be served. Add the coconut milk 10 minutes before sitting down to dinner. Simmer for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Add the arrowroot starch in a little water and add to the gravy with more spices to taste. Serve immediately
