This Cornbread Stuffing is a delicious Thanksgiving alternative to traditional stuffing! Combine homemade cornbread with sautéed celery, onion, dried cranberries (or cherries!), vegetable stock, parsley, then rebake it for about 20 minutes for a gluten-free, egg-free, vegan holiday side dish.
Don’t get me wrong, I love traditional Thanksgiving- I mean, why mess with a good thing?! But, the good thing kinda messed with me- you know, the whole no gluten thing… Stuffing = bread and bread = not allowed. Promise I’m not salty anymore. But wait, there are actually some really great gluten-free breads, and stuffing mixes out there nowadays (yay!)… but most of them contain eggs, which is also a no-go for me. I could make my own bread loaf, just to crumble it up into a stuffing- which seems like quite a bit of work. If I make a loaf of bread, I’m going to want to eat it as toast or make a sandwich. So I put my thinking cap on and landed at this delicious Cornbread Stuffing recipe!
While this recipe does require you to make the cornbread and then crumble it up into a stuffing, it seemed more acceptable than “ruining” a perfectly good loaf, and the time required to make cornbread is far less (25 minutes) than a good loaf of bread. Plus, have you ever had cornbread stuffing? YUM.
This Cornbread Stuffing is actually really easy to make and I think it would make a lovely side dish for family members (or for yourself) who can’t consume gluten this Thanksgiving, oh and by the way- I think even the gluten-eaters will love it! You take your baked cornbread and combine it with sautéed celery, onion, dried cranberries (or cherries!), vegetable stock, parsley, and maybe some mushroom powder (like from Four Sigmatic), then rebake it for about 20 minutes and boom, done!
