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.

    • Thank you! My kids didn’t even know they were eating brussels sprouts – it’s very light and fresh, like coleslaw.

  6. This stuffing looks great Jeanette! My sister-in law and niece have an intolerance to gluten and dairy so this would be a great dish to have for our next holiday gathering. I like the sound of the leeks and celery in here too, and the stuffing muffins are such a wonderful idea!

  7. Gorgeous stuffing recipe! :)

  8. Great stuffing recipe Jeannette! I love the sage and mushrooms.

    Hi Jeanette,

    This is the first Thanksgiving my little sister is on a gluten and dairy free diet… So, I was very excited to come across your recipe on Pinterest!

    Do you have any suggestions for a substitute for the mushrooms? My sister is not a big mushroom fan. I am not used to experimenting with recipes, so I would love your recommendation.


  13. A Vegan guest brought this the Thanksgiving dinner. I have had to go Gluten free due to wheat sensitivity. I love stuffing on Thanksgiving and have missed being able to eat it. This was a perfect solution. It may become a tradition recipe in future Thanksgiving dinners. Thank you for sharing.
