Classic Holiday Stuffing

A GLUTEN-FREE stuffing so tasty it will be the most requested dish at your table.

Moist and flavorful!

HELLOOOO Gluten-Free Stuffing! This stuffing is life changing. Ok, maybe that’s a little dramatic but if you need to eat gluten-free, the holidays can be tricky for many people. Being able to enjoy traditional holiday favorites can be a really big deal and trust me, everyone at the table will be raving about this dish!

The key is starting with a great baguette and toasting it. We used baguettes from Everybody Eats NYC, cubed and baked at 200° for about 40 minutes to dehydrate it. So you start with really crispy but not rock-hard bread. It’s mixed with sautéed onions, celery, garlic & optional other veggies, chicken or veggie broth, and plenty of parsley and sage, then baked. That’s it!

This recipe is from a longtime friend, herself a total foodie and fellow mom of a celiac child. For years her family made 2 stuffings at Thanksgiving – one gluten-free, one not. Now they only want this Gluten-free one… it’s that good!
