Ha ha... I wondered how MY thread title ended up w/ your name on it, mushroom. I just posted and exited and didn't even know my post didn't show up!

So... I've tried 10 different stuffing recipes over 10 years ... several w/ cornbread, a few w/ Pamela's bread, w/ no luck at all. Guests always said it was good, but I knew better! They were awful! THIS year, I finally enjoyed the stuffing. It's still not Pepperidge Farm and never will be, but w/ some delicious gravy poured on top, it was GOOD.

I told the lady in the health food store I was on my 10th recipe and she suggested using chicken broth... um... halloooo... that's not the problem! She finally asked what ingredient I might be missing and I said, "Duh... GLUTEN!!"

I used Udi's bread cubed and dried, broth, butter, celery and onions, and spices. I was so happy on Thanksgiving!!

My cornbread stuffing with sausage was the worst part of our meal this year. I made a bang up gravy though, and have struggled with gravy in the past.

I always add too much stock (gummy gunk) or not enough (brick hard, even with gravy). If anyone has a good ratio of liquid to dry gluten-free bread and sauteed veggies, please post.

I've given up on gluten-free stuffing, it's just terrible. I figure we have plenty of other carbs elsewhere in the meal to fill the stuffing void.

I would only make dressing with torn chunks of homemade or unsliced bread. If the bread falls apart and turns into crumbs, what is the point? That is more like gloop with indistinct chunks of bread. There is such a thing is great dressing. It really helps if you brown the chicken bones in the oven when making stock. I add something for crunch such as chestnuts or water chestnuts and fresh herbs.

does anyone have an actual recipe? i bought gluten-free bread cubes, already dried, but am wondering about how much liquid to use with it.

i made the mistake of asking my cousin, who always comes to visit for Christmas, what she liked most for Christmas dinner, and she said the dressing. yikes. i was gonna just skip it, but i went and bought a stove-top stuffing mix (w/gluten) and in a moment of weakness in the next store, i bought gluten-free bread cubes. now i'm wondering what to do with them.

help?

I actually went to the grocery and looked at the back of a bag of good old Pepperidge Farm to figure out the bread cube to liquid measurements. All that said... dressing/stuffing/whatever is very simply never going to be the same or even remotely similar. Sad to say but it's the gluten that makes dressing/stuffing what it is. There aren't many times I lament and whine about having to be gluten-free... and dropping stuffing/dressing from future big meals will help me not be such a whiner.

I think most people have their own favorite stuffin mix...Our gang loves the stuffin with a blend of different breads. I make cubes & oven toast. I think Whole Foods breads makes decent stuffins. Four of us are gluten-free but 18 eat the gluten-free stuffins....WF sandwich bread, the sun dried garlic tomato , a bit of rye makes for a tasty blend with added spices. I also add two beaten eggs, sauteed onion & celery,& as much chicken broth as you like. Some people like their stuffing drier others prefer it moist... I use about 1/2 to 3/4 can of broth...

I know this is to late. I bought gluten free tried bread crumbs from whole foods (sorry don't know brand) 12oz size. It was mixed with 1.5 cups (sausage, onion, celery sautéed) and one can chicken broth. At thanksgiving I crushed it before mixing, it was okay. At Christmas I crushed it (food processor) after mixing, it was great, even without gravy.

thanks everyone! i ended up sauteing onions in butter, adding chopped water chesnuts and tossing it with the bread cubes. i couldn't remember if i usually added an egg or not, so didn't. the flavor was really great, but the center of the bread cubes were untouched by the broth, so rather crunchy. hahahaha. that's ok, i was the only one eating it, so after dinner i added some more broth, tossed it again and put it back in the oven.

the bread cubes were from Market of Choice, a west coast chain, and were yummy. they'd pass a competition with the Mrs. Cubbison's or Marie Callendar's dressing mix.

i bookmarked that Udi's recipe for next time, though. it looked good.

I used to love the traditional sage and apple dressing I made (in the "old days") and I was skeptical about trying this one in the crock pot at Thanksgiving this year, but it was really very good. I was stunned. :D even my Mom liked it --a lot!---and she is picky about such things.

I followed it as written (as I do the first time I try anything) . I used a combo of various slices of loaves of breads I had made (that were in the freezer--I saved them fr this purpose) , but I am sure Udi's would work

Maybe you might give it a try and see if you like it.

    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      I'm ok, just a little tired right now.  Lots of stress getting elderly parents and in-laws taken care of. My thyroid took a dip low (no surprise there) so I had to increase dose by a quarter grain. Overall, I am not dragging all day but waking up and getting going in the morning is slowwwwwwwww.  I'm sure you understand that! Yeah........Barty.  I thought of her for DAYS on end and it just saddens me to no end that such good people are the ones being taken.  Sometimes life is just so unfair. We all know that but there are times when it really hits you in the gut. There are times I think they are the lucky ones with the way the world is going these days. This terrorism plague is unnerving and I am really getting mad about it. Dear God, please stop this shyte!  I also miss nvsmom and others who have not been heard from. I hope she is feeling better and is just busy with life.  I got glutened on vacation about 6 years ago on the first day in Liverpool.  Jeez, was I sick!  I know how you feel but take heart........that was the last time I was bagged on vacation.  The longer you are gluten free and heal, the faster you recover from hits. You also get very good at not being glutened. It has been almost 2 years since it happened to me last so after 11 years gluten-free, I think I am doing well with that. I still have a little work to do with the vitamin D levels but I work so seeing much sun isn't happening.  My levels have doubled but they are still under 50. This whole Celiac thing is a part time job!

      Hang in there SLLRUNNER...it is hard and frustrating.  Good job getting that appointment moved up.  I've done too...I've called daily looking for cancellations.  I can also remember counting down the days until my appointment.  ((((Hugs)))) and please let us know how it goes.
    • So I've been glutened....
      Miso soup has gluten in it, doesn't it? =/ I know that I've been avoiding it, which is a big shame because I adore miso!
    • Kissing and gluten
      Hi guys. I know this is a topic that has come up before, but I'd appreciate a little bit of advice. I've been 'courting' a guy for the past few months; nothing has happened yet but we have a proper date in a few weeks which is likely to lead to kissing. He didn't even know what a ceoliac was until a few days ago; I don't think he'd caught the hints that I'd been dropping beforehand. English isn't his first language - he's east Asian. Anyway, I've heard about being potentially glutened via a kiss. How do I broach this? I don't want to scare him off or make him think that I'm a lot of hard work; I know, I know, he's going to have to accept me as I am, etc. but for someone new to the entire thing, it is likely overwhelming. It would be for me if I'd never heard of it! Do I laughingly bring it up beforehand? We aren't going for food so if he isn't eating, just having a cup of tea, will I still need to be careful? If this seems safe, do I just let him kiss me and then bring up afterwards that any future kisses after food will have different precautions?  It all feels so clinical! He's a lovely guy so I do think he'll be understanding, but if anyone has any advice of first hand experience on how to approach the topic without it being a weird moment, that would be great.  
    • gluten-free...how long til I feel better?
      Hi there.  I had been sick for over a year and decided to try and go off gluten within 4 weeks i started to feel better than i had for so long! But my problem is now i test negative for celiac because i have no gluten in my body. I have been told to go back on gluten so it can be determined if i have it or not but im not willing to go back to feeling that sick again!

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
