Ingredients

Turkey Gravy:
Cornbread Stuffing:
Roasted Vegetables:
Cornbread Croutons

Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

Special equipment: Sorghum syrup is made from the sweet juice of the sorghum plant, a variety of cereal grass. It's popular in the south as a sweetener for baked goods. You can find it at natural food stores or specialty online retailers.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

Whisk together the eggs, milk, 1 teaspoon salt and 1 teaspoon pepper in a large bowl. Stir in the Turkey Gravy and hot sauce. Spread the Cornbread Stuffing in the prepared baking dish, then sprinkle over the Roasted Vegetables and Roasted Turkey Breast. Pour the egg mixture over the top. Bake until golden brown and set, 35 to 40 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes before slicing. Garnish with the cranberry sauce, if using.

Turkey Gravy:

Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Whisk in the flour and cook until golden, 1 to 2 minutes. Whisk in the warmed stock. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring constantly, until thickened, 10 to 15 minutes. The mixture should coat the back of a spoon. Pour in the wine, stir and cook for an additional 2 to 3 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Cornbread Stuffing:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Melt the coconut oil over medium heat in a large skillet. Saute the onion, celery and carrots until tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and put into a large bowl. Add the cornbread croutons, seasoned croutons, thyme, rosemary, sage and cayenne if using. Add the chicken stock and stir to combine. Taste and add salt and pepper, then stir in the eggs. Mix to combine and pour into a 9-by-13-inch casserole dish. Bake until golden brown and fluffy but still moist, 45 to 55 minutes. 

Roasted Vegetables:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Put the squash, beets, onions and thyme in a large bowl. Drizzle with oil and toss to coat. Season generously with salt and pepper. Spread in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet and roast, tossing once, until golden brown and tender, 45 to 50 minutes. 

Cornbread Croutons

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Add 1 tablespoon of the coconut oil to a 6-inch cast-iron skillet. Put the skillet in the oven and allow to heat until very hot, 6 to 8 minutes.

Combine the cornmeal, flour, baking powder and 1 teaspoon salt in a large bowl with a whisk. In a different bowl, combine the almond milk, applesauce, sorghum, egg and 2 tablespoons coconut oil. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the wet. Fold to combine.

Carefully remove the skillet from the oven and pour in the batter. Return the skillet to the oven and bake until golden with a crisp crust, 25 minutes. Let cool before cutting the cornbread into 1-inch pieces (about 8 cups).

Reduce the oven to 350 degrees F.

Grease a baking sheet with some coconut oil and spread the cornbread in a single layer. Be careful, the cornbread is fragile and you dont want to be rough with it. Drizzle lightly with the remaining 2 tablespoons coconut oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring halfway through, until golden brown and crunchy, 30 to 40 minutes. Cool on the baking sheet before using.
