Stuffing A Turkey

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

If a turkey is stuffed with "regular" stuffing, will that contaminate the whole turkey?

Also, does anyone have a good stuffing recipie to share?

Thanks :)

Yes, if any regular stuffing touches it at all at any point in the process, it is contaminated. You can make stuffing following the regular recipe, using chicken broth that has been verified to be gluten-free and a loaf of gluten-free bread or cornbread. There are some bread and cornbread mixes that others may recommend. I use a loaf of EnerG bread. Don't like it to eat as bread but it makes good stuffing and breaddrumbs.

Yes, it will. :)

I make the same stuffing I always have, I just substitute the bread cubes. What I do is take a half loaf of Gluten Free Pantry French Bread, cube it, spread the cubes out on a cookie sheet sprinkled liberally with poultry seasonning (McCormicks). Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes or until dry and toasty. Then use as you normally would in stuffing.

I've found that store bought millet gluten-free bread makes a very tasty stuffing. It has a more grainy taste and texture that I like. I can't have corn or potato or a whole list of other stuff, but the millet bread was safe last time I used it and made a very nice stuffing. I will however remember to cut off the crust next time as it was too hard.

According to some chefs, stuffing a bird is not a good idea. The inside of the bird is the dirtiest part in terms of bacteria and it may not get hot enough for long enough in the cavity to kill off all the bird bacteria that has come into contact with the nice moist stuffing. So just making it up in a deep covered dish is really a better safer option all the way around. That way gluten-free people can have the gluten-free stuffing and everyone else can chow down on gluten.

I did cornbread stuffing last year and it was DELICIOUS! I used the cornbread recipe from Pamela's Products website using Pamela's Baking Mix. Then I based the stuffing recipe from Tyler Florence's recipe: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/tyler-f...ipe3/index.html

I increased the amount of liquid since it was a little dry the first time I did a trial run for my tastes (1/3-1/2 cup stock) and used herbes de provence instead of just sage (it was the same herb mix I was using to flavor the turkey and gravy, so it made sense). I served it to gluten family members who had never had cornbread stuffing before and they all LOVED it. Everyone had seconds (and some had thirds).

    • I agree 100% but in that disclaimer they said in a restaurant setting. They sell canned chili in the local stores so I would think that I should be okay. I've tried to make my own chili but the problem is that I suck. I'm a horrible cook. Gordon Ramsey would probably slap me in the face. Cincinnati style chili is different from most chili out there too. There is chocolate, cinnamon, and some other ingredients that you won't find in other chili recipes out there. It's different and if you screw it up, not good. Give it a try. Like I said, if you make it right, the best you've ever had.  
    • Hi Nikkster, They often call the celiac testing a celiac panel.  There is also a celiac screening test they sometimes do first, the ttg.  You want to get the full celiac panel if possible.  Not everyone shows up on just the screening test.
    • Maybe get your vitamin D levels checked.  And take some K-2. K-2 is supposed to help vitamin D absorb into bones.  Oh, and skip the Dominos next time! We all make mistakes at times,.
    • I am actually trying to bulk up and body build with this disease. I go with a keto diet of fats and protein, I use vegan protein powders throughout the day. I used to use nutrakey V-Pro and now mostly use MRM Veggie Elite, blend, and do my own mixes with Naked Pea, Jarrow Pumpkin seed, MRM Sancha Inchi, and various blends from Julian Bakery pegan line. I use them in shakes with almond butter or sunflower butter sometimes using macadamia, pecan, etc. If I can get them and drink it throughout the day. I found large omelettes and quiche made with coconut flour and almond flour with leafy greens mixed in every day for breakfast works out great. I found some nut based breads (found online then started making my own in my bakery) and eat them toasted with avocado. And I always have 1 scoop pumpkin protein (great for recovery) and 1 scoop pea protein before bed. I sometimes take extra BCAAs from Jarrow to help prevent muscle break down Try adding a bit of coconut oil to everything to get in more fats.   <.< recently trying some T boosters but not seeming much from them.
      Keto Fat bombs...look them up made with nut butters, coconut, coconut oil, and protein powder versions great way to stack on the calories.
    • I'm from the UK so I can't help you on the recommendation, but  instead of canned chili have you tried making your own? It's super easy to do, far nicer and cheaper than any  pre-made  variety and you can make a big batch and freeze small portions so its always available if you need a quick filling meal? There's no reason a chili should include gluten btw, but if they're telling you that there's a high probability of cc its best not to eat there in any case!   Edit: checked their site:  https://www.skylinechili.com/special-dietary-options.php#glutenfree They're basically telling you there could be cc
