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.

    • I'm still really new to all this but is it common to have trouble with sleep? I swear since my symptoms got really bad a few months ago I can't get 1 good nights sleep, like a 5 hour stretch is doing real good. Wake up at 3am wide awake almost every night. Told my doctor and they've recommended melatonin, that doesn't work. Tried chamomile and lavender tea, no help. Tried zzquil, that will knock me out but maybe for like an extra hour then I'm really drowsy the next morning from it. I don't know what to do.
    • I have 2 copies of DQ9. One from each parent.
    • Obviously from the outside it's difficult to comment, but if I were you I'd leave allergies for now and pursue definitive celiac testing via your doctor and preferably a gastroenterologist. They're the first port of call for digestion issues. If you do wind up being celiac it's possible that other allergies or intolerances would resolve or improve in any case once you've been on the diet for awhile. That's been my experience.   Ps note that wheat allergy is completely different and unrelated to celiac or non celiac gluten sensitivity. 
    • Thank you ps, it may be better if the thread title was changed as we now have two 'overwhelmed' topics. If it were 'Bile ducts and celiac?' then it may attract more users with direct experience?
    • Hello and welcome Maybe? From reading others accounts there's a big variation in how quickly gluten antibodies respond to the gluten diet. I did similar to you and my doctor said that 1 week back on should be enough to show up in a test, but he didn't know what he was talking about sadly... The 2 week figure refers to the endoscopy, for blood testing 8-12 weeks on gluten is more normal.  Basically if it comes back positive fine you have your answer. If its negative it may be a false negative due to your going gluten free beforehand. If you want to pursue a diagnosis then yes. Don't go off gluten again until you confirm that all testing is complete.  Keep a journal noting any symptoms, that may be useful to you later. More info here: There's some good info in the site faq: https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/announcement/3-frequently-asked-questions-about-celiac-disease/ I know how you feel! Partway through my gluten challenge I knew that too results notwithstanding. Fwiw I think you've found your answer. Good luck!
