Gluten-Free Cranberry Orange Stuffing
When you’re on a gluten-free diet, sometimes you’ve got to get creative when it comes to making gluten-free versions of traditional foods. Like using sweet potato planks as toast or polenta rounds as crostini “bread” or pre-made gluten-free muffins in stuffing, like in this Gluten-Free Cranberry Orange Stuffing recipe.
This stuffing uses Cranberry Orange Muffins from Flax 4 Life, which are delicious on their own and really fun to repurpose for a savory dish like this one. The rest of the ingredients are pretty straightforward and commonly used in stuffing – celery, garlic, poultry seasoning, chicken or veggies stock, butter, and eggs. Of course, you can swap the butter for dairy-free butter, if desired.
I know it’s early to talk Thanksgiving but a lot of people like to plan their menus early, so I thought I’d share this now. I may be a bit biased, but I recommend adding this to your holiday menu this year!
