Switching to a real food diet free of processed foods, sugars and starches heals the gut but sometimes the absence of “comfort food” is depressing. This dish of cheesy fries is nourishing, filling and will not feed pathogens in the gut.

On its own, it’s a meal! The whole family can sit down to one cookie sheet full of cheesy fries and no one complains they are hungry for hours.

IMAG2580First fry organic celery root or organic rutabaga in home rendered pastured lard, tallow, bacon grease (especially if it’s from these bacon wrapped hearts while cooking) and/or coconut oil. 

Spread fries onto a cookie sheet with a non-stick or silpat sheet. Sprinkle with mineral salt. 


Cover with fresh ground sausage preferably from pastured pork. We do not use pre-seasoned ground sausage because of the added sugar and potential free flowing agents, wheat and anti-caking agents. To avoid these pathogen feeding fillers we use ground sausage from our favorite local farmer and season it with mineral salt, pepper, sage, thyme and red pepper flakes. 


Cover the top with raw cheese or approved block cheeses. It is best to use cheese which contain full fat milk, not skim milk. The ingredients list should read: milk, enzymes, salt.


Cook in the oven on 500 degrees for 15 minutes or until the cheese is melted and slightly browned to your liking. 



Serve with fresh sliced organic jalapenos and home brewed sour cream.

This is not a news article published by a paper trying to make money. This blog is put out by a mom who sees first hand the effects of nourishing food vs food-ish items. No company pays her for writing these blogs, she considers this a form of missionary work. It is her desire to scream it from the rooftops so that others don’t suffer from the damaging effect of today’s “food”.

    You really need to do a bit more research on pork. It is not a good fit for human consumption.
