Gluten Free Thanksgiving Stuffing/Dressing

Gluten Free Thanksgiving Stuffing – after cooked

Veggie Hubby loves stuffing at Thanksgiving. He even let me use chicken broth. You could definitely make this with vegetable broth as well. This recipe was very easy and very yummy. It actually got better as left overs. The flavors were even more enhanced when reheated.

I found this recipe on allrecipes.com.  You may notice that my onions are large pieces.  I don’t really like onions so I left them large in size so I could pick them out 🙂  I also added green pepper.  I had the tops from the stuffed green peppers I made so I thought they would be good in the stuffing and they were.

The other change I made is I found gluten free bread cubes at Whole Foods so I used them instead of making them myself.

Here is the recipe copied from here with my changes. I divided the recipe in 1/2.
