Who else is excited about Thursday?
One of my absolute favorite side dishes during the holiday season has got to be dressing. Savory, soft, glorious turkey dressing made from scratch and covered in gravy. This year, we're doing a completely gluten-free Thanksgiving meal, but I was determined to figure out a way to make my homemade turkey dressing and still staying completely G-free.
Today I'm going to share my recipe for homemade gluten-free turkey sage dressing with you all!
Gluten-free Thanksgiving Stuffing Recipe (from scratch!)
1 loaf of gluten-free bread (I used Franz gluten-free white, this stuff is AMAZING)
1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, melted
2 Tbsp powdered sage
3 cups broth (chicken or turkey)
1 onion, diced fine
4 stalks of celery, diced
1 Tbsp garlic, I used pre-cut fresh garlic, but garlic powder works fine too!
1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, and either lightly grease a cookie sheet, or line it with parchment paper. Remove your entire loaf of bread from the package and cut into around 1 inch cubes. Arrange your cubes on your cookie sheet, and bake for around 30 minutes, until they become hard to the touch. Congrats, you also just made gluten-free croutons!
2. Remove your bread cubes from the oven and set aside, let them cool. Turn your oven up to 375 degrees. Prep a 9x13 inch glass baking dish with a teensy little bit of butter (just to keep the bread from sticking).
3. In a small bowl, mix your broth, seasonings, eggs, and melted butter. Whisk until fully combined.
4. In your glass baking dish, toss together your bread cubes, onions and celery. Gently pour your liquid mixture over your bread crumbs and veggies. Stir a tiny bit, to fully coat all the bread cubes. Cover the top of your baking dish with tinfoil, and put your mixture in the oven!
5. Bake for about 30-45 minutes, or until the top of your dressing is completely congealed. You will need to check on this at the 30 minute mark, because depending on how dehydrated your bread cubes were it might take longer or shorter time to fully fluff up. Once it's fully cooked through, remove your tin foil
