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.

    • Here's another thing.  Feeling deprived?  Order two of the same item.  I was hungry by the time dinner arrived! 
    • The doctors just made me feel like I was crazy because they did not have a clue of what was wrong with me. I did a stool test (positive) and I did a genes test (positive for two gluten sensitive genes, one in each chromosome).  Blood test are not so foolproof, if you read the comments/experiences in such topic you will see the problems. Biopsy can give a false negative if taken from an undamaged area. If you have medical problems that go away once on a gluten free diet then gluten is the problem. The medical establishment profit from managing your medical problems and big pharma makes money by pushing pills so we need to be careful because they won't benefit if a gluten-free diet solve your problems. Since I started a Gluten free diet I have been free of the following: (all related to Celiac)  Irregularity, Intestinal noise, Irregular stool, Tooth enamel defects, Rash in upper arms, Abdominal swelling, depression, fatigue, irritability, lactose intolerance, 
      loss of memory, dandruff, uncontrollable bladder, suicidal thoughts, unable to sleep, Canker sores/ Mouth ulcers, high blood pressure, and probably others that I did not realize. I was at the end of my rope, thanks to Google and the people that are able to talk about this I was able to get my life back. I am passionate about this because I know how bad its can get. 
    • Well, I have never cruised on Carnival, but I am sure they can accommodate you.  I assume that you have already alerted them that you require gluten free meals.  If not, please contact Carnival immediately. Here are my own tips.  Some folks eat off the buffet line, but not me or hubby except for coffee/drinks and baked potatoes (jacketed) and fruit that we wash in the restroom (people touch everything!)  Okay, I am OCD, but my last glutening which occurred the previous summer made me sick for three months (GI tested my antibodies to prove it).   When we board, I go to the buffet restaurant ASAP and ask to speak to the Head Waiter (they are usually there greeting customers and often trying to up sell to specialty restaurants.   Let them know you have celiac disease and must be gluten free.  They may try to tell you that each dish is clearly marked gluten free, but really?  Who's to say that some other passenger is not going to switch spoons (or I have seen passengers wandering around with serving spoons...I kid you not!  The staff usually will  go downstairs and fetch a gluten free meal for me from the main dining room's kitchen as there is usually a dedicated area for allergies.  We have to wait up to 20 minutes or so but it is worth it.  Starving?  Get a baked potato wrapped in foil until your gluten-free meal arrives.  Now, do not do this every single time.  Those folks have to go down several levels to fetch food and you don't want to be a pain.  But if the main dining area is closed, they need to make an effort to keep you safe.  On our last cruise, we were advised not to eat anywhere but the main dining room and that included room service (they are not trained to handled allergies).  My headwaiters have sent goodies (prepackaged gluten free rolls and cookies for us to keep in our room.  We can always grab whole fruit (I wash it first) to snack on.  I bring gluten-free non-perishable items with me to eat while at port in case we can't find anything (which can be often).  Again, when we get back to our ship, we contact our headwaiter and he/she can prepare some snacks until we have dinner.   Be grateful and not picky.   We eat all meals in the dining room (or at least as much as possible).  Our headwaiter had a few other celiacs on our cruise this summer, so they prepared some gluten-free waffles, etc. for our breakfast!  What a treat!  At breakfast, we'd have different waiters, so our headwaiter would always instruct our waiters each and every time!  They even let me tour the kitchen and showed me the allergy section.   The only time I did not feel safe was at the buffet.  We once ordered gluten-free pizza and I realized (I watched) that that restaurant didn't really have the gluten-free thing down), do I called him on it.  Got the manager etc.  So, be careful.  Other cruises made us frozen Udi"s which was just fine with us.  They covered it up in foil so that we would not get any cross contamination from their pizza oven. So, have fun!   Tipping?  We prepaid our gratuities, but we gave our headwaiter an extra $200.00 for his time.  For us, it was well worth the service and safety of our food.  It does not hurt to slip some of the tip ahead of time (like after your first meal!)   Oh, I checked your ship.  You must eat in the diningroom if you have special dietary needs.
