This Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Herbed Thanksgiving Stuffing is simple and elegant, and will please the pickiest eaters.
I remember the first gluten-free Thanksgiving I made several years ago. Everything on the menu was naturally gluten-free except for the stuffing and pumpkin pie. For some reason, making gluten-free stuffing stumped me at the time as did making any recipe that required breadcrumbs.
At some point the light bulb went off, and I realized gluten-free breadcrumbs could be made simply by whizzing gluten-free bread in the food processor (I save bread ends for this). As for Thanksgiving stuffing, I use either gluten-free bread or make gluten-free cornbread to make my own Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Herbed Thanksgiving Stuffing.
We’ve got some dairy intolerances in our family too, so this stuffing recipe is dairy-free, which is simple enough to convert by using olive oil in place of butter.
Any leftover stuffing can be made into Stuffing Muffins.
