Sausages with Pumpkin Seed Butter Waffles (or Bread)

Have a special occasion deserving of a breakfast feast? We celebrated the holidays with this one, complete with SCD almond/pecan flour waffles, pumpkin seed butter waffles - for those avoiding nuts - fruit (below is a bowlful of baked apple pieces and in-season blueberries from our freezer) and SCD-legal sausage. The recipe for SCD nut waffles is available in Breaking the Vicious Cycle (Deanna's Midas Gold Pancakes/Waffles), but here's the recipe for pumpkin seed butter waffles and for the homemade sausages. To ensure your sausages are pure with absolutely no fillers or additives, you either need to make them yourself (no more than 15 minutes to make) or speak with the butcher who makes them. The latter is finally becoming possible as more and more people care about what they eat and small, local butchers return to communities across the US and Canada. A butcher in Peterborough, Ontario, Canada, called the Community Butcher Shop, is just the kind you need to find.

Pumpkin Seed Butter Waffles

  • 3/4 cup pumpkin seed butter (Nuts to You is the brand we used)
  • 5 eggs
  • 1/4 cup butter or coconut oil, melted
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 Tsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 Tsp. salt

Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl and then pour in batches into a waffle maker. Pumpkin seed butter tends to be dryer than almond flour so watch carefully not to overcook them in the waffle maker - they cook very quickly! The waffles are very portable so you can take the left-overs on the road for snacking.

Use the same recipe to make a beautiful loaf of pumpkin seed butter bread. For a fluffy, high-rising bread, separate the whites from three of the five eggs and beat to soft peaks, then fold these into the rest of the mixed batter before putting in a greased loaf pan to bake for about 30 minutes at 350 degrees F.

Homemade Sausage Patties

This recipe makes about 10 patties slightly smaller than a homemade hamburger.

  • 1/2 pound ground pork
  • 1/2 cup small, chopped onion, scallion or shallots or a combination of all of them
  • Salt, pepper
  • 1 Tsp. paprika
  • 1 Tsp. orange zest
  • 1/2 Tsp. nutmeg
  • Pinch each of cayenne, ground cumin and ground fennel seed
  • 1 Tsp. of a mix of any of the following: thyme, rosemary, sage, chipotli

Mix together, form patties and saute (just under 10 minutes per side) or bake in oven at 350 degrees F. for about 20 minutes until fully cooked.

This diet may not work for everyone but if you have a choice between scary possibilities (high-risk medication, extreme surgery, eventual bowel cancer) or a little self-restraint and denial (avoiding some foods you might like), then the choice to me is clear. Everyone with these sorts of problems should at least TRY the ideas in this book, down to the letter, for at least a month, and see how they go.
