Gluten Free Stuffing

I make mine with rice (part short grain brown, part wild rice blend, part risotto) and everything else pretty much the same (onions, mushrooms, carrots, spices). You can also make it just like any other stuffing, from 'scratch', using gluten-free bread.

are there any pre-made ones?

or does anyone know of a good recipe?

im completly at a loss on this one.

thanks!@

I am not aware of any premade stuffings/dressings or mixes, maybe someone else will know on that?

As far as making it yourself I have read many accounts of members taking a regular stuffing/dressing recipes and modifying it by substituting gluten-free breads. I know Carla uses the EnerG bread and says it tastes great (hard to believe :lol: but she swears by it!).

I usually make corn bread dressing (I don't stuff the turkey just make it as a side dish dressing) and it is so very simple.

Any corn bread recipe will do, I just use a gluten-free flour. In my experience corn bread is really forgiving, I have used all different types of gluten-free flours and flour blends, and even have used soy milk and rice milk as a dairy substitute, and it still comes out great. You can even get a gluten-free corn bread mix.

I make it a day or so ahead and let it cool, cut it in to bite size cubes (it does crumble a bit but I try not to get too fussy about it) then I throw the cubes, and crumbs, on a cookie sheet and loosely cover it and let it set out to dry all day and over night.

The recipe I use serves 10 generously-

10 cups of cubed corn bread (I make a double batch of corn bred to get the 10 cups)

1 stick butter

3 medium onions diced

4 celery stalks diced

1 tsp dried thyme

1/2 tsp dried sage

2 cups chicken broth

salt and pepper to taste

If the bread is not dried you can warm in the oven for about 30 minutes at 325.

Melt butter in large skillet and cook the onions and celery until soft (10-15 minutes) then mix in the herbs, salt and pepper. In a large bowl toss the bread with the onion celery mixture and chicken broth to coat. Put the bread mixture into a large baking pan (I butter it) and cover with foil. Bake at 375 for about 20 minutes, or until warmed through. (I also take the foil off for about 5 minutes, or even put under the broiler for a few minutes at the end to brown it up a little.

This recipe can alse be used with regular gluten-free bread if you didn't want to make the corn bread as an extra step.

Hope this helps :)

I make stuffing almost the same way as Juliem, but I use Ener-G bread, along with the corn bread, cubed and dried in the oven (250 degrees for about 20-30 minutes). I use a whole loaf of Ener-G Brown Rice Loaf and a whole recipe of cornbread. I use olive oil (about 1/3 C) instead of butter, but pretty much follow the same directions as juliem. I add raisins and chopped apples to mine and stuff it in the turkey.

Note: Ener-G Bread is yucky normally, but it really does work well in the stuffing. You have to make sure it's dried out thoroughly before making the stuffing.

i know that gillian's foods makes a Gluten-free Casein-free mix, and I believe Gluten-Free Bakehouse does as well. I'm trying Gillian's for the first time this year, so can't vouch for their quality. Both are available on internet only though...

Everybody Eats makes one premade too. My mother ordered it from a store that carries Everybody Eats products around here. I would really rather her make her usual stuffing for me just using gluten free bread.. but I think she is convinced this stuffing will be good. It may very well be.. I just want moms stuffing.. phooey!

juliem's recipe sounds delish.

question: where can I find gluten free chicken broth? I know many contain wheat. So I want to make sure this Thanksgiving, if I use a recipe, that I am no more sick than everyone else from overeating rather than a gluten attack.

GREAT IDEAS!

In fact, I have been trying to figure out just how to do a stuffing this year. Last year, I omitted the stuffing completely.

Thanks for all these great threads to help out on Thanksgiving. :D

My girlfriend lives in NY state only a few minutes away from a place called the Gluten Free Bread Basket. You can find them on the web. She's "imported" chocolate chip cookies (awesome and big! :D ), snickerdoodles, unseasoned breadcrumbs (My meatloaf came out fine....I just added the same seasonings/cheese as the Progresso Italian BC) and country bread (as always, it must be toasted but is good...not nearly as nasty as many of the others!).

This week, she grabbed me gluten-free bread stuffing mix. I haven't tried it, but it sounds good. It's crunchy, brown rice bread cubes seasoned with butter, salt/pepper, parsley, rosemary and thyme. The recipe on the bag is a non-descript, traditional recipe. I do know there's a deadline for Thanksgiving orders if you were interested. Good Luck!!

I know celiac specialities & El Petro carry gluten-free stuffing mix. Also Annalise Roberts has told me that Whole Foods gluten-free sandwich bread makes a fine bread for stuffing. I usually save all my bread ends,mock rye,challah & so on & freeze them until I get enough for use for stuffing.

This is a great alternative stuffing, and delicious as well!

Quinoa Stuffing with Smoked Surry Sausage

Chef Ross Martin of Allred’s Restaurant at Telluride Ski Resort – Telluride, CO

Adapted by StarChefs

Yield: 4-6 Servings

Ingredients:

Quinoa:

2 Tablespoons minced onion

2 Tablespoons butter

1 ½ cups quinoa

About 4 cups roasted turkey stock, warmed

Stuffing:

2 cloves garlic

1 large onion, medium dice

2 carrots, medium dice

2 celery stalks, medium dice

2 cups smoked surry sausage, quartered

2 sticks butter

¼ cup dried cranberries

2 granny smith apples, medium dice

3 cups cooked quinoa (recipe follows)

4 cups dried bread, large dice

¼ cup fresh thyme, picked

Method:

For quinoa:

Melt butter in a pot over medium heat. Gently sweat onions until translucent. Add quinoa and toast slightly for about a minute. Add ½ cup seasoned turkey stock and simmer until quinoa absorbs the liquid. Keep adding turkey stock a little at a time until the quinoa grain opens. When it opens, a small tail-like pistol will pop out. It should be tender to the bite. Remove quinoa from pot and cool on sheet tray. Check seasonings and adjust if necessary. If the stock was well seasoned, the quinoa should not need any further seasoning.

For stuffing:

Preheat oven to 375°F. Melt 3 Tablespoons butter in large pot over medium heat. Sweat garlic, onions, carrots, celery and sausage until tender. Season with a pinch of salt. Add remaining butter and melt. Add cranberries, apples, cooked quinoa, bread cubes, and thyme; toss to bind. Add turkey stock to moisten to liking. Transfer to baking dish and bake, uncovered for 45 minutes.

Hi everyone,

I'm new here. I just went gluten-free a few weeks ago at the suggestion of my naturopath until I get tested in a few weeks and I'm beyond overwhelmed.

I've been perusing looking for a stuffing recipe for my first gluten-free Thanksgiving.

I'm looking for something that is as close to StoveTop as you can get. As gross as it is to many, I have always had a StoveTop addiction, never really enjoying homemade stuffings, and the thought of a Thanksgiving without it makes me want to cry. Ok perhaps not that bad but I would love to find something similar. :)

Does anyone know of a recipe that sort of tastes like StoveTop?

Thanks!

Kristen

Sadly enough, Stovetop has always been my favorite as well! I have never really liked other peoples homemade stuffing either. I'm going to try Juliem's recipe with regular bread from Bette Hageman's book Gluten-free Gourmet and just pray for the best! I looked at the ingredients on a box of stovetop and sadly there are a lot of unpronounceable things. :) Nothing really to go from as far as copying it. I would love to find a copy though too! That will have to be our mission. If I ever come close to duplicating, I will definitely post it!

I had a thought and did a quick search for "Stovetop Stuffing Copycat Recipes", copycat recipes are recipes that people have created in attempts to taste like the real thing (something from a restaurant, or a brand name product, and etc.).

This is one that came up:

http://www.cdkitchen.com/recipes/recs/66/S..._Mix60897.shtml

And another (I don't personally know of a gluten-free bouillon, so that needs to be verified):

http://www.recipezaar.com/152835

Just make sure your ingredients are all gluten-free, the spices, broth, and of course bread.

With gluten-free bread the result won't be exactly the same, but it might be close enough in flavor.

Thanks so much!! I'll give the first one a try. I never thought of that search phrase and have been scouring the internet with no luck.

Oh and this may be a dumb question, I never thought about spices having gluten in them. Do they typically? Or do they sell ones that specifically say gluten-free?

If a spice is just one spice, say, thyme or basil, etc., then nothing else is allowed to be in it. So yes, it would be gluten free.

For spices that are comprised of a few things, the ingredients are required to be listed.

McCormick's is a company that will list all gluten and not hide it.

Thanks for posting! Now I don't know which stuffing recipe to use (yours or this one)! Is yours similar to stovetop's flavor when made with regular bread instead of corn bread? :)

For the bouillon, I use Herb Ox. It says gluten free right on the container. Yay!

Thanks for the tip on the bouillon!

I don't have any idea what Stovetop stuffing tastes like, I've never had it, so I can't help you there. If you want Stovetop then maybe you should go with the copycat recipe.
