Stuffing A Turkey
0

11 posts in this topic

If a turkey is stuffed with "regular" stuffing, will that contaminate the whole turkey?

Also, does anyone have a good stuffing recipie to share?

Thanks :)

Yes, if any regular stuffing touches it at all at any point in the process, it is contaminated. You can make stuffing following the regular recipe, using chicken broth that has been verified to be gluten-free and a loaf of gluten-free bread or cornbread. There are some bread and cornbread mixes that others may recommend. I use a loaf of EnerG bread. Don't like it to eat as bread but it makes good stuffing and breaddrumbs.

Yes, it will. :)

I make the same stuffing I always have, I just substitute the bread cubes. What I do is take a half loaf of Gluten Free Pantry French Bread, cube it, spread the cubes out on a cookie sheet sprinkled liberally with poultry seasonning (McCormicks). Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes or until dry and toasty. Then use as you normally would in stuffing.

I've found that store bought millet gluten-free bread makes a very tasty stuffing. It has a more grainy taste and texture that I like. I can't have corn or potato or a whole list of other stuff, but the millet bread was safe last time I used it and made a very nice stuffing. I will however remember to cut off the crust next time as it was too hard.

According to some chefs, stuffing a bird is not a good idea. The inside of the bird is the dirtiest part in terms of bacteria and it may not get hot enough for long enough in the cavity to kill off all the bird bacteria that has come into contact with the nice moist stuffing. So just making it up in a deep covered dish is really a better safer option all the way around. That way gluten-free people can have the gluten-free stuffing and everyone else can chow down on gluten.

I did cornbread stuffing last year and it was DELICIOUS! I used the cornbread recipe from Pamela's Products website using Pamela's Baking Mix. Then I based the stuffing recipe from Tyler Florence's recipe: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/tyler-f...ipe3/index.html

I increased the amount of liquid since it was a little dry the first time I did a trial run for my tastes (1/3-1/2 cup stock) and used herbes de provence instead of just sage (it was the same herb mix I was using to flavor the turkey and gravy, so it made sense). I served it to gluten family members who had never had cornbread stuffing before and they all LOVED it. Everyone had seconds (and some had thirds).

Remove from the heat and discard the bay leaves. Combine the sauteed vegetables and quinoa. Add the remaining oil. Add the dried cranberries, fresh parsley, lime juice and pecans. Toss and serve.

You can stuff the turkey or leave as is. This is VERY yummy and it will be enjoyed by all! Not just the gluten-free! Quinoa is a staple in our house. It is just so good!

    • Why would your PCP go against the advice of leading celiac researchers and the American and British GI Associations?  The endoscopy/biopsy is still the gold standard for diagnosing celiac disease.     I understand your daughter's  situation, but I would get a second opinion from a GI before going gluten free.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ http://gut.bmj.com/content/early/2014/06/10/gutjnl-2013-306578.long#T2 http://www.worldgastroenterology.org/guidelines/global-guidelines/celiac-disease/celiac-disease-english  
    • It might not be Celiac, if your tests are negative.  Have you been to a doctor and been tested for diabetes or thyroid issues lately?  What are your parents doing about your issues?  Some things like acne and shin splints might be explained by age or activity, but passing out and depression need to be addressed.
    • I will visit  Johannesburg  international airport, is there any gluten free food available? The so called customer service office did not answer my question! So I am taking it to the forum. If you know of any restaurants inside the airport please let me know.  
    • I will visit Beijing international airport, is there any gluten free food available? The so called customer service office did not answer my question! So I am taking it to the forum. If you know of any restaurants inside the airport please let me know.  
    • Instead of going to my doctor I went to theranos to get a celiac blood test done. Doctors never seem to want to hear about you diagnosing yourself so I decided against going to the doctor . So my symptoms are/were being bloated after eating, stomach pain, constipation, also diahrea (my poop is always green ik tmi), bad anxiety, depression, irritability, insomnia and anger after consuming a big meal of gluten, I also have a rash on my right leg below my butt I don't think it's dh tho, I'm always thirsty (like I can't get enough water), dizzy spells (fainting and blacking out), my left side of my face tingles (could do with anxiety), my face also feels hot after consuming gluten, I have acne, hip pain and shin inflammation, back pain, and dandruff. My theranos results came back negative with everything ranging from 0-3 so it was super low. I had the celiac panal done. Well anyways I thought maybe it's wrong and went off gluten anyways. This is my 6 day gluten free and my symptoms haven't resolved at all really. My bloating has lessened a tiny bit but I still get bloated after every meal. And im constipated all the time. My poop stopped being green though. I'm not eating dairy right now either. I'm also having worse anxiety and am still depressed. If Im gluten sensitive shouldn't I be feeling better by now? I also live in a house with gluten eating people sense im only 15 but I try hard not to cross contaminate. I eat lots of veggies  (Kale and salads) and lots of nuts and beans and indulge salmon and tuna a few times a week and eat quinoa every morning for breakfast. I'm scared I'm not gluten sensitive and I don't know what to do.
