Gluten-free stuffing is a must-have for any gluten-free Thanksgiving dinner. This GF stuffing is also a gluten-free dairy-free (GFDF) stuffing as well!

Gluten-Free Mushroom Stuffing
Fall is here and it is time to start to think about Thanksgiving dinner! There are so many traditional dishes at the dinner table.
For my family, we love gluten-free bread stuffing the most! Since we are vegetarian, this is actually a gluten-free vegetarian stuffing.
Stuffing or Dressing – What do you call it?
The word stuffing can also be interchanged with the word dressing. We don’t actually stuff the “stuffing” into a turkey since we are vegetarian but you can certainly adapt the recipe to fit your own needs! We won’t stop you from that!
So who actually thought of stuffing? Who thought, “this would be a great idea?” No one actually knows for sure!
Stuffing definitely comes in a variety of ways. This isn’t a gluten-free stove top stuffing. You just can’t add water to this one after you dump it from a box.
I am not even sure that a gluten-free stuffing like that exists? Does it? If you have found something like that, drop me a note in the comments.
History of Stuffing
Of course, I searched the interwebs for you to see if I could find some amazing history on stuffing. I actually found that between the 2nd century BC and the 1st century AD there was a book published with recipes for stuffing.
So the question STILL remains, “Did the Pilgrims have stuffing at THEIR Thanksgiving?” The answer is still unknown. What do you think? Drop me a comment below!
These recipes by chef Apicius were not vegetarian though! But have no fear this is a gluten-free vegan stuffing! I have you covered!
But let’s take a look at this gluten-free stuffing recipe, I am sure that once you see how easy it is you won’t question making it!
So what exactly do you use? That’s a great question. Especially when it comes to bread crumbs.
Gluten-Free Bread Crumbs
I made my own gluten-free bread crumbs for stuffing. I used Schar bread to do it! The best way to make your gluten-free bread crumbs is to let the bread sit out for a day.
You want to bread to harden a touch. I know, I know we love soft bread. But for this vegetarian stuffing recipe, you need to let the bread get a touch stale. This will help in the cooking process!
If you have been gluten-free for any length of time, you’ve heard of Schär. Schär gluten-free products can be found on the shelves of almost any grocery store, and their recognizable packaging lets you know that it’s a safe option for you.
I typically have many of their products in my pantry because it’s a brand that I know and trust. I love that Schär continues to create new products that people with celiac disease actually want. They run extensive testing on new products and survey their marketplace carefully.
Other ingredients found in this stuffing recipe, besides the bread cubes, include :
- Vegetable broth
- Poultry seasoning
- Red onion
- Salt and pepper
Poultry Seasoning Without Poultry
Hold up! Does the poultry seasoning confuse you? Don’t let that name scare you, it is actually NOT made with any poultry!
What’s in Poultry Seasoning:
If you want to make your own poultry seasoning at home, you can certainly do that! It is easy and can be very cost-effective!
