  • 1 sweet potato or yam
  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 1 cup celery
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons sage
  • 2 teaspoons rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1/2 cup liver, diced
  • 3/4 cup cranberries, dried or fresh (optional)
  • 1 apple, diced
  • 1/2 cup parsley, chopped
  • 2 eggs, whisked (omit for AIP)
  • 3/4 cup chicken or turkey stock
  • 4 tablespoons coconut oil
  • salt and pepper to taste (omit pepper for AIP)


  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. Peel and then cube the sweet potato or yam. Mix with 1 tablespoon of coconut oil and place in a large baking dish (3 quart or 2.8 liter). I used a 9 by 13 inch dish.
  3. Bake sweet potato cubes for 30 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, cook the diced onions with the ground turkey until both are cooked.
  5. Add the celery, sage, rosemary, and thyme to the saucepan and cook for a few extra minutes.
  6. In a separate saucepan, saute the liver in a teaspoon of coconut oil.
  7. Take the baking dish out of the oven carefully and add in everything from the saucepan, the parsley, the liver, the apples, (cranberries), chicken or turkey stock, 3 tablespoons of coconut oil, the whisked 2 eggs, and the salt and pepper.
  8. Mix everything together well.
  9. Stuff into the turkey, or if you want to eat the stuffing by itself, cook for 20 minutes in the oven at 375F.
