Thanksgiving Stuffing is a delicacy absolutely crucial to the meal. How else would you soak up all that Holiday wine? It’s science. Look it up. Thanks to organic grocery stores, Gluten Free bread strips are available in your local freezer isle. These products generally suck. Some GF bakery companies assume the average American loves their sandwiches served on bread sweetened with fruit juice. Close your eyes for a moment and imagine eating tuna salad on short cake. There’s your average GF Bread. Yuck. And then there’s Udi’s (Choirs singing and jets flying overhead in celebration). Weird sweet stuff not included in their loaves of bread, hamburger and hot dog buns or bagels. Of course there’s always the option of making your own bread to include in your favorite holiday stuffing recipe. Always a good choice.
Here’s my favorite GF Stuffing Recipe. Enjoy!
3 Udi’s Plain Bagels – toasted and cut up into 1 inch dices
1 white onion – diced
1 cup diced celery
1 stick of unsalted butter
2 – 3 large GF turkey sausages
1 red delicious apple
salt and pepper to taste
poultry seasoning and a pinch of thyme
1/2 cup of organic chicken stock
Put prepared bagel chunks in baking dish. Melt stick of butter in fry pan. Add onion, celery, apple, salt and pepper, poultry seasoning and thyme. Sauté until veggies are tender. Pour over bread and stir well. Cook sausage (remove casing first) in same frying pan until thoroughly cooked. Add sausage and chicken stock to bread crumb mix. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes until top is golden brown.
