One of my biggest blessings during this time, however, was my precious sister in law who came to spend the weekend to take care of me and to cook some SCD recipes. She stayed up till 3 in the morning making soups, stews, muffins and more. But while she was here she decided to try to make one of her famous recipes SCD friendly for Jacob. And boy did she hit the nail on the head with this one. The result is so much like the origional. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much a we do. There is a little bit to the preparation but I promise it will be worth it.
SCD Jalapeno Sausage Cheese Bread
2 1/2 cups almond flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 1/2 Tbs melted butter1/2 cup fresh grated Parmesan Cheese
1 cup fresh grated Colby Jack Cheese
4 oz Farmer's Cheese or 1 cup dripped homemade Yogurt
1/8 - 1/4 cup chopped jalapenos
1/2 cup quartered SCD legal smoked sausage or breakfast sausage(cooked)
Fry sausage in a pan and let cool. Blot off all grease. Mix dry ingredients well in a large bowl. Next, add in wet ingredients and mix well. Mix in sausage and grated cheeses. Pour into a buttered loaf pan and bake in an oven preheated to 350. Bake for 30 minutes. Insert a knife in the center to ensure the loaf is baked completely. If not place back in oven for 5 min and check again. Remove and cool.
For the sausage, we have had some smoked made for us at a local meat market. We provided the meat and they just added green onions and fresh garlic. If this is not an option there are many SCD recipes for breakfast sausage on line like this one from Eating SCD or this one from No More Crohns. Also if the sausage is unavailable you could just add some spicy cooked ground meat.
If you do try this recipe out I would love to know what you think of it. This is also a great addition to the Holiday Table. Maybe it will become a part of your Christmas tradition!!
