Watch how to make this recipe.
  • 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. Yield: 2 cups

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. Yield: 8 to 12 servings

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. Yield: 3 cups
