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).

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).

    • Hi Lisa, I completely understand why you didn't do a biopsy on your daughter.  I went through the appendix thing myself...not fun!  I was diagnosed with just bloodwork and no biopsy, but did have the full panel.  I would go back to your PCP and ask for a full panel to include TTG, EMA and DGP tests.  Since she was already willing to test you, I'm sure she would be willing to order these.  Good luck!
    • katesyl.........this is an older topic so the OP most likely won't answer.  I can, however, offer a piece of advice for you. Just going gluten free will probably not drive your inflammation markers down into normal.  It does depend on how high they were to begin with but with all autoimmune diseases, there will be inflammation going on forever.  Get used to wonky blood work because most of us will have that issue. I have 4 autoimmune diseases in total and, although I have driven certain inflammatory markers way down, my recent sed rate number was elevated.  The normal is supposed to be 30 and under in a woman my age but mine is 50.  With 4 AI diseases, I doubt it will ever be normal and I don't let it bother me. I am not willing to take major meds at all and use more natural anti-inflammatory supplements.  You can do whatever you feel comfortable with in regards to treatment but don't expect normal numbers with Celiac Disease. Inflammation will improve but normal?  Most people never get there completely.
    • My daughter's PCP did not go against anything, she offered to do the biopsy - I was the one opposed to it. My DD, who was 10 at the time had just spent 3 weeks in the hospital, very sick with a ruptured appendix, then had 2 surgeries a few months after. I didn't see the need to put her through anything else with her numbers so high and all the classic symptoms. Apparently, in some other countries, if your numbers are all high, they forego biopsy. Anyway, I was really asking about myself and whether I should push for add'l testing. I am still new this this and trying to get up-to-date and wasn't sure if my PCP should conduct other blood tests before I go completely gluten-free. I have been somewhat gluten-free, but not entirely. I have no problem going gluten-free, but want to make sure that I am doing it for the right reasons. I wasn't sure if the Gliadin Abs IgA was sufficient to point to Celiac and possibly doing a biopsy for me. Or if additional blood test would make more sense.   Thanks!!
    • I would like to know if you have found out the source of your inflammation yet. I'm gluten free three years but my inflammation test was high.
    • Personally, I would ask for the full Celiac panel and see what that shows.  I mean, the full Monty, not just cherry picking testing.  On the full panel, if the tTg and the EMA come back positive, that is a diagnosis without biopsy.  This is how I was diagnosed and there is absolutely no doubt I have Celiac.  I presented with classic celiac so it was a no brainer with my blood results. If you cannot stick to the diet religiously, without cheating, unless you have a biopsy picture, then I would go on to have a biopsy.  Like your daughter, I was way too sick to have one done at the time.  They would not have agreed to use sedation because I was so anemic and malnourished and that ended that!  Good luck with whatever you decide!
