Thanksgiving Menu... Help Needed

Recommended Posts

So I have only been on the gluten free diet for about a week, however I refuse to not enjoy my thanksgiving dinner. I'm going to attempt to make everything gluten free, but I do need your help. The recipes that I plan to make are below and I need to know if I am missing anything that could possibly contain gluten. Any help would be greatly appreciated. :)

P.S. I am a vegetarian so the turkey does not matter to me and the dressing will not be cooked inside the turkey.

Every can of condensed cream of mushroom soup that I know of contains gluten. I am also pretty sure that French's fried onions also contain gluten. Progresso and Health Valley cream of mushroom soups are gluten free. Since they are not condensed, you might want to thicken them with cornstarch and water. Some people use Funions (sp?) instead of the French's fried onions.

Also, make sure your mayo and other condiments have not been contaminated with gluten.

Yes, French's fried onions have wheat. Also, I tried the Health Valley Cream of Chicken and thought it was nasty . . . don't know about the cream of mushroom but I would stick with the Progresso since it's mainstream.


Experience is what you get when you didn't get what you wanted.
