Bread-less stuffing? Yes, it’s true and very delicious.My wife Val said “could you make me a whole roasting pan full next time?” Cauliflower is my favorite mashed potato substitute so I figured why not use it to replace the bread. Well it works like a charm. This recipe is low fat, ovo-vegetarian, paleo, diabetic friendly, low-carb and heart-healthy. You can add your own preferential additions like: apples, walnuts, sausage, oysters etc. but it is just fine as is.
