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).

1 cup mushrooms, sliced

1 TBSP dried sage

salt and pepper (freshly ground is good)

1. Heat 3 tbsp of the oil in a large skillet. Saute onion, squash, pepper, garlic, apples and mushrooms over med. heat until the onion is soft and the squash is browned. Add the sage, salt, and pepper to taste. Set aside.

2. Bring 4 cups of water to a boil. Add the bay leaves and quinoa. After the water comes to a boil again, reduce heat to low and cover. Cook for about 20 minutes. 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!

    • It starts as a piercing itch and the skin turns reddish with a few tiny red bumps. Then tiny watery vesicles appear and itch like crazy. The whole process from start to finish is about 3 weeks and the lesions leave a purplish skin tone and scab. I get them on the back side of both knees near the bend.  Sometimes it's just a few scattered vesicles in the same area. I've had Drs say eczema or herpes. My next step is to find a dermatologist familiar with dh. Thanks for the input.
    • DH can look like that but other things can as well. It would help if you described the way it acts/presents. You can get a dh biopsy. Read threads in this section to find out how the biopsy is done correctly. 
    • my celiac was triggered by pregnancy.  had no clue.  symptoms creeped up (started with indigestion, deemed as 'colitis' or 'ibs') but eventually all the ones you mentioned above all joined the party.  sounds like you are headed in the right direction.  one of the points of diagnosis is the reaction to the gluten-free diet.  keep digging.  half the people on here don't have a firm diagnosis (science really needs to catch up with this disease)  and a false negative blood test is fairly common, for whatever reason - if you've not been eating gluten every day for like 8 weeks, it may not detect antibodies, which is what these tests are measuring.  sorry you're having this dilemma!  hope you find some answers.
    • tom & chee!  good to know   they grill the sandwich on a separate pan?  or do you just order soup and salad.  so cool to find more places to eat out!!
    • Hi everybody,  I have had symptoms of Celiac since mid pregnancy and they have gotten worse over the last 5 months post partum. I have constipation, periods stopped, extreme fatigue,  joint pain, weak muscles, dizzyness, migraines, light sensitivity,  pins and needles in hands and feet, elevated TSH, depreason and anxiety. Was put on thyroid meds but it didn't help any of my symptoms. My doctor told me to try gluten free and reintroduce it. I tried it for 2 weeks and started feeling quite a bit better, then reintroduced it and felt worse than ever! It's definitely a gluten problem. She suggested I get the Celiac panel run so I got tested for Ttg iga, DGP igg and EMA all came back NEGATIVE! by this point I had only reintroduced gluten for a few days. She said my antibodies shouldn't go down by much in this time frame. Should I push for a referral to a GI doctor? I don't know why I feel the need for diagnosis? Probably my mother in law laughing when I said I can't eat gluten anymore and she tried to offer me things like donuts, saying it's just a little.  She just doesn't get it. So now, do I suffer for 6 weeks to get the biopsy or just stop eating gluten and be done with it.  I have also noticed while introducing new foods to my baby that he throws up whenever I give him anything wheat based. I doubt they can diagnose a baby and I refuse to damage his intestines for a diagnosis.  Maybe I should get my daughter tested as well? She is 3 and has been complaining of upset tummy and is frequently constipated. She is growing well though but is also quite thin. She is not a big eater. She may be constipated because she holds it. She is afraid to poop on the potty. Since I have had symptoms for only about 10 months, could there not be much damage yet? Sorry for the long post!
