With Thanksgiving just around the corner, it’s time to get your menus and recipes in order! Thanksgiving a favorite holiday for many, and while it can be a bit of a challenge to recreate the meals that we remember from childhood, it’s fun to try a variety of recipes that might help create new memorable dishes.
One of the most difficult challenges for Thanksgiving is figuring out how to create the perfect gluten-free stuffing. After lots of time in the kitchen, some mishaps and disappointments, we’ve gathered three of our favorite gluten-free stuffing recipes for you.
Hopefully we can help you make this gluten-free Thanksgiving even tastier than the last!
This stuffing comes closest to what I remember growing up and goes perfectly with turkey and a generous serving of gravy. I have also made it with buckwheat bread, and it’s got even more of a crunch to it.
1 loaf gluten-free sandwich bread, diced into 1-inch cubes
1 large yellow onion, peeled and diced
2 stalks celery, diced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh sage
2 large eggs
3 cups chicken stock, heated
Cornbread is a perfect addition to any Thanksgiving meal, so why not make it into stuffing? This is my absolute favorite of the list.
1 box gluten-free cornbread mix already made (a favorite is Krusteaz)
3 Tbs. unsalted butter
1 ½ cups finely chopped onion
¾ cups finely chopped celery
½ cup finely chopped carrots
1 Tbs. dried thyme
1 tsp. dried sage
2 Tbs. sea salt
1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1 cup chicken or turkey stock
