Liver has been routinely called natures most potent superfood. There aren’t a lot of foods that can compare to the micronutrient profile of liver. Liver is an extremely rich source of B vitamins. It is also rich in the fat soluble vitamins A and D.  An interesting fact about liver is that it’s one of the only animal protein sources of vitamin C. Liver is rich in potassium, magnesium, calcium, iron, phosphorous, copper, and zinc. If you have been unsure on how to add liver into your diet, this recipe is a fantastic starting block! Happy Thanksgiving!

Grain Free Sausage Stuffing

1 loaf of grain free bread - see below for a homemade option

4 cloves garlic, chopped

3 Tbsp grass fed ghee, divided

1 red pepper, small diced

1 red onion, small diced

3 stalks celery, small diced

3 oz chicken livers, small diced

1.5 lbs pasture raised Italian chicken sausage, casing removed

1 bunch parsley, chopped

1 Tbsp dried rosemary

  2. Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  3. Cut bread into sliced. Slather with ghee and top with minced garlic. Place in oven and bake for 15 min or until toasty brown.
  4. While your bread is toasting, heat a large cast iron skillet and add remaining ghee, red onion, celery, red pepper, dried herbs, liver, and chicken sausage. Break apart sausage meat so it mimics ground chicken. Cook until chicken and liver has fully cooked.

  6. Once the bread is toasted, remove from the oven and let cool. Once it has cooled, cut into small cubes and add cues to a large mixing bowl. Combine chicken sausage mixture and eggs and stir to combine.
