Gluten Free Alternatives to Traditional Stuffing

I think it’s safe to say that stuffing is a staple on everyone’s Thanksgiving table. Since classic stuffing is made with bread, that means missing out on this Thanksgiving favorite if you’re gluten free.

I know what you’re thinking.. why not use gluten free bread? Why yes, this is a great option! You can read about my personal favorite gf stuffing here and the recipe I make here! However… many people don’t want to make gluten free stuffing for everyone, due to cost or not everyone wanting to eat it.

I’ve search Pinterest for some delicious gluten free (non-bread) alternatives to classic stuffing!

      Oh nice! It’s funny I used to hate stuffing… but now looking back it’s probably because I felt sick after from all the gluten! Now I love it!
