Gluten Free Apple Spinach Stuffing Muffins

Delicious stuffing can be the highlight of a meal. This simply made gluten free apple spinach stuffing is made into muffins. The apples and spinach put a lovely fall twist on this amazing stuffing. It is moist and light with a crispy topping. Because of the selection of ingredients we have used, it is healthier than traditional bread stuffing. This savoury muffin makes a wonderful addition to turkey, chicken or pork and is just the thing for mopping up gravy the next day


¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
1 medium onion, finely chopped
¼ cup chopped fresh sage
½ tsp. dried thyme leaves
½ tsp. sea salt
½ tsp. freshly ground black pepper

2 cups roughly chopped baby spinach (about 3 oz.)

Whisk eggs, milk and baking soda until fluffy about 2 minutes
In a large bowl combine bread with spinach, then add onion mix and stir until everything is well mixed. Add in eggs and gently stir until just combined
