This'll be the last time I'll bother y'all about this bread problem. I just need to know for sure.

Under the post "How did your Thanksgiving go" many of you said that you had good stuffing. One even said that they had gluten stuffing, but it didn't bother her/him. So, you can stuff and roast a turkey with gluten bread and then eat the turkey and not suffer any consequences?

The people who responded with raves about their stuffing used mixes. Is that the only way to get a good stuffing - mixes? Isn't there a good homemade bread?

To answer the first question about stuffing with gluten bread I would say no! The second question about non-mix stuffing may depend on whether or not you like something like cornbread. There are stuffings which you can make with sausage and cornbread as an example. My wife used a combination of gluten free sandwich bread and day old cornbread. I'm sure if you search for gluten free stuffing you will find ideas.

My sister actually made mine and this was the first time she ever cooked gluten free.

She used the EnerG brown rice load, she didn't have time to look around and this was the bread that Wegmans sold and she just picked it up and used it.

She diced and minced fresh celery and then used the Wegmans new culinary stock soup for the chicken broth.

It was very good. It had a dark look to it, but it was soft and it went well. It was not Stove Top stuffing but it was very good. Success!

As for the question about actual gluten containing stuffing...I would never eat that, I don't want to be sick!

I must have missed the post about gluten bread....

I used The Gluten Free Pantry's French bread. I made a loaf on the Sunday before Thanksgiving, sliced and froze half of it and saved the rest in a zip lock bag in the fridge for the stuffing.

To make the stuffing, I cut the bread into small cubes, spread them on a cookie sheet and baked them at 325 until they were lightly toasted and hard. Then, just use those in whatever stuffing recipe you used to use. I sauteed carrot, celery and onion in Smart Balance and olive oil. Tossed in the bread cubes and threw in a couple teaspoons of poultry seasonning (McCormacks). Then I used Pacific Free Range Chicken Broth to moisten it and bind it all together. You can do this ahead of time and refrigerate. Put it in the oven at 375 about 1/2 hour before you plan to eat!

It was very good--everyone really liked it. :D

I made Carleigh's pretty much the same as Patti. I baked her the bread I usually bake and toasted the cubes in the oven. I added sauteed celery, onion and cooked it in homemade chicken stock. She added garlic salt to it.

I made gluten-free cornbread (from a mix) and used that along with cooked rice as the main ingredients. Seasonings, onion, celery, etc. could be pretty much anything you want. I looked at several recipes and then just made it up as I went - probably couldn't duplicate it. I used a gluten free pre-made chicken stock (Pacific Foods I think).

And my stuffing isn't bread-based at all. :P (I use a combination of rices, don't stuff the turkey, and free up that space in the oven by cooking it on the stove.) Everyone loves the stuffing, too. :)

I used Ener-G Light Tapioca and Trader Joe's Brown rice bread. I usually use Ener-G Brown Rice Loaf, but the store was out of it. I cubed it and dried it in the oven. I made homemade cornbread and dried that in cubes too. I mixed in onion, grated carrot, raisins, chopped apples, sage, salt, pepper and chicken broth and stuffed it into the turkey. I served it to all my guests and there was barely any left over. I've made it without cornbread too. Sometimes I'll add dried cranberries.

Hi there!

I made my stuffing with no premade mixes. I will be glad to post the recipe, but it is long. My stuffing is "old fashioned" thanksgiving dressing. It takes awhile to make (in other words, it's not put together in thirty minutes like most other things I make are) ;) However, if you're interested, I'll be glad to post it. Just reply and let me know! :) -Julie

I would love to have a good recipe for stuffing, if you are willing to post it. Thanks!

Mmmmm.... Stuffing.... I just got around to making Thanksgiving dinner the other night. My daughter and I both had colds on Thanksgiving day and I wasn't up to cooking. Here's the recipe I used http://allrecipes.com/recipe/bread-and-cel...ing/detail.aspx and here's the bread recipe that I used to make the stuffing http://www.glutenfreeforum.com/index.php?s...c=27172&hl=. It only takes about two hours to make the stuffing from scratch (including making the bread from scratch). It's so worth it.

Here is my stuffing recipe:

Gluten-Free Stuffing With Dried Fruit

http://glutenfreebay.blogspot.com/2006/11/...ried-fruit.html

It's amazing.

I would NOT eat a turkey that had been stuffed with regular bread stuffing. The way we dealt with this is we made the turkey without any stuffing in it, and made both gluten and non-gluten stuffings which we cooked separately in casserole dishes. I actually think it's tastier and has a better texture when not cooked inside the turkey.

    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.  
    • I'm glad I found these forums!  I will spend some more time this evening reading through them.  But I wanted to get my question out there just to see if anyone else might have answers quicker than I can sift through the forum for them.      I've been feeling terrible for about a year, and after an elimination diet last month, figured out that if nothing else, gluten/wheat is a problem.  After lots of research, I abandoned the elimination diet and added gluten back in, so that I could get tested for Celiac.   I was off gluten for 3 weeks, from mid-June until early July.  I've had it back in my diet for almost 3 weeks now.    My question is this: Since I was off gluten for 3 weeks, and now back on for almost 3, is that enough time on to yield a positive Celiac blood test, if that indeed is what I have?  All the research I've done says 4-6 weeks for a gluten challenge, but is that really necessary if I was only not eating it for 3 weeks?  I am desperate to get this testing done and over with.  I feel terrible all the time and getting through the day is a struggle.  My doctor ran allergy panels already and everything came back clear except for a mild wheat allergy.  So if nothing else, I'll have to give up wheat for sure at the end of all this.  I get the feeling she doesn't know a ton about Celiac though, so I'm doing a lot of the research on my own. Any advice or information would be so appreciated! 
    • Hi Michael, That's quite a spike in blood pressure!  I haven't tested that myself and don't want to if it means I have to eat gluten.  Blood pressure testing to identify food reactions is something that has come up before.  It sounds like it might be possible but I don't know how much study has been done on it.  Probably not much since it is such a simple, straight forward idea. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Megan, Did the doctor test you for celiac disease?  You really shouldn't go gluten-free until all the testing for celiac disease is completed.  It is a little odd for a doctor to tell you to go gluten-free for no reason IMHO.  Did he/she explain the reason for it? Personally, I have learned over the years what I can eat safely and what I can't.  Occasionally I get hit but it is rare.  Simplifying your diet is a good first step.  Avoiding processed foods for a while and dairy also is good.  I suggest any change you make last for a month at least. Then try the food again. If you are eating 100 random ingredients/foods each day it is hard to figure these things out.  If you reduce it to a much smaller number of foods then things become simpler. Welcome to the forum!
