Could you use your family's special recipe and just substitute gluten-free bread?

I've made the interesting discovery that gluten-free bread bakes very well in stuffings, casseroles.

Don't fight it. We've got enough crappy luck, take that and run!

to be honest i've tried some of the bread mixes to try and find a bread recipe to substitute and they taste horrible and turn out gooey? maybe i'm making them wrong.....any suggestions on a good gluten-free bread brand?

Try a French bread like Gluten Free Pantry/Glutino or A super white bread like Kingarthur Flour.

I ground some of each up for crumbs and they worked great.

Someone suggested that one brand...can't think of the name....but it's dry and horrible and it's premade and shelf stable....said it is great for baking. Someone help me here.....orange/yellow package....

If I do stuffing this year I'll do cornbread stuffing - so its half "bread", half cornbread.....perhaps that would help adjust the flavor expectation for you? A rice dressing would be good, also.

I haven't decided if I'm cooking traditional Thanksgiving yet....may just make gumbo and forget about it (although that's what I do for Christmas so hmmmm)..,,

thanks so much pricklypear1971!! are all of those mixes you buy and make? i've tried the redmill white bread -- came out horrible... maybe i didn't cook it enough though -- outside was browned, inside was soggy. although i like your cornbread idea!!!

GUMBO... yumm! Do you have a good gluten-free recipe for that you'd like to share ;-) I'm from Green Bay, WI so good gumbo recipes, gluten-free or not are hard to come by! :-)

Yes, the GFP and King Atthur are mixes.

For crustier French Bread buy little loaf pans, and make 4 mini-loaves instead of 1 big one. I did that with the Gfp. Worked great.

When I make gumbo I'll post the recipe. It's naturally gluten-free as long as you make the roux from gluten-free flour. Just meat and veggies otherwise.

Why not a rice stuffing. There are plenty of recipes around. It would probably be best NOT cooked in the turkey, but a separate casserole dish. I have found that using brown sushi rice holds up really well in soups and rice salads....kinda has a barley texture. Pre cook it first though.

4 cups (stale or lightly toasted)gluten free bread cubes

Place cubes in a large bowl and mix with:

1 Tablespoon parsley

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon sage

1/4 teaspoon thyme

Set aside

In a saucepan combine:

1/4 cup margarine

1/4 cup onion

celery

Cook until onion and celery is tender

Remove from heat and add:

dash pepper

1/2 cup chicken broth

1 beaten egg

Pour over the bread cubes and seasonings. Grease a 2 quart baking dish. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Uncover and cook an additional 15 minutes.

This can be used to stuff a turkey instead of baking it separately.

6 cups gluten free bread cubes (fresh)

3/4 cup chopped celery

3/4 cup chopped onion

6 Tablespoons butter or margarine

3/4 teaspoon dried sage

1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves

1 teaspoon marjoram leaves

salt and pepper to taste

1 cup chicken broth (add another 1/4 cup for moister stuffing)

3 Tablespoons butter or margarine cut into thin slices for top of stuffing

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Place rack in center of oven. Spread bread cubes on a large baking sheet and bake until cubes are dried out and golden. Allow to cool thoroughly.

Increase oven temp to 350 degrees. Lightly spray an 8 x 8" baking dish with cooking spray.

Melt butter in medium skillet over medium heat. Add onions, celery, sage, thyme and marjoram. Mix well and saute until tender.

Put bread cubes in a large mixing bowl. Stir in onion and celery mixture. Add broth and mix in gently. Allow to sit until all moisture is absorbed (about 5 minutes).

Spoon stuffing mixture into greased 8 x 8" baking pan and cover with foil. Bake covered for 15 minutes. Remove foil, dot with thin slices of butter across top of stuffing and bake an additional 20-30 minutes until top is golden brown and a little crisp.

New England Bread Stuffing

10 cups lightly packed gluten free

bread cubes

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine

2 large chopped onions

2 stalks chopped celery

2 teaspoons poultry seasoning (I use Bell's, but it is not available everywhere)

1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley

4 Tablespoons chopped fresh sage

3/4 teaspoon salt

3/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

3/4 to 1 1/2 cups chicken or turkey broth

1 egg, beaten

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spread the bread cubes out on a baking sheet and toast, stirring once or twice, until firm to the touch--8 to 10 minutes. Place bread cubes in a large mixing bowl.

Melt the butter in a large skillet. Add the onions and celery and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until softened. Remove from heat and sprinkle with the poultry seasoning. Stir in the parsley and sage. Season with salt and pepper.

Add onion mixture to bread cubes, tossing gently to mix. Add 3/4 cup broth and the egg and mix lightly but thoroughly. Add remaining broth to make a moister stuffing if baking separately. If stuffing turkey, make a slightly drier stuffing and stuff lightly into turkey. If baking separately, place in a buttered baking dish and cover. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, removing cover the last 10 minutes. I use Rudi's or Udi's bread for stuffing.

I love Against the Grain bread and there is a recipe for stuffing with their baguettes (purchase from Whole Foods Market).

    • Thanks Stephanie & Gemini for the info. that the 4 of 5 doesn't apply to children. I wasn't aware of that until now. 
    • I think the posters above have given you very good information and I will throw in my 2 cents worth.  I am surprised that they did not test her DGP IgA also.  I am sure that would have been positive.  They switched off with antibody classes and usually they do both tests for both antibodies.  IgA is more specific to Celiac but the IgG is also useful.  The testing shows your daughter is producing antibodies to the gluten in her diet. (DGP IGG). THe tTg shows positive for some damage or inflammation. You know........your daughter is only 4.  She hasn't been on the planet or eating gluten that long. It can take years for enough damage to occur for it to be able to be found on biopsy.  I would say it is highly likely that this is Celiac, especially with her symptoms. But because the damage hasn't graduated to bad enough yet, they won't diagnose her. I think you need to do what others have said and get all copies of testing and find someone else who will take a look and give a diagnosis, especially if they have you do a dietary trial and her symptoms go away.  That might be the only recourse if you want faster proof. I know I would want faster.  I would not really be happy if I thought I had to keep feeding her something that was making her sick.  If you keep her on gluten long enough, the diarrhea will probably show up. BTW.........the criteria mentioned regarding diagnosis does not apply to kids.  I know it's silly and stupid but most leading Celiac specialists do not go by this criteria for kids.......adults only.  Keep that in mind because it might come up.  You could recognize it but they might not. Have you considered gene testing, to help bolster a diagnosis? As far as false positives go, it's the other way around. False negatives happen more frequently than many people think.  It's a recurring theme here.  With her symptoms, which is what I had, a bloated belly and tummy aches are telling.  Have they tested her for lactose intolerance?  That can cause similar symptoms, although it sure won't raise those 2 blood tests.  Keep looking for Celiac because there are many red flags here.
    • This 4 out of 5 criteria does not apply to children. I was never given a reason why, but it isn't.     That said, you may try to get a second opinion from another GI who may be willing to give her a firm dx.  We were in your boat 6 years ago and while I'm sure I'll get slammed for it, I wish we had kept gluten in our kiddos diet till he scoped positive for a variety of reasons.  Again, even family is different and you have to find what is best for you!
    • Mnoosh, I had swollen lymph nodes prior to celiac dx and for a while after going gluten free. My neck as well as groin. The groin ones were the worst. Guess what? All gone! It's hard to recall a time line & consider that everyone is different but I think mine completely resolved within a year.  You've been given great information. Just breathe and then again, breathe. You're going to be fine. 
    • It is the only thing you have eaten, so it can't be anything else?  I eat it with no issues so I am not sure how you can be certain that is the problem.  All I am saying is that its sort of "your word against mine and the company's word".
