Easy Gluten-Free Stuffing

Thanksgiving is coming up! Perhaps you will be watching the parade on TV or just enjoying the giant meal. Either way, Thanksgiving is a day most of us will be stuffing ourselves silly. Hopefully, this Easy Gluten-Free Stuffing recipe will assist in keeping your table a little healthier this year!

Fun Fact: In the South stuffing is actually called ‘dressing’.

Stuffing has been around for a long time! Sometime between the 2nd century BC and the 1st century AD, there was a chef who published a cookbook that contained recipes on stuffing an animal with some form of early stuffing. Since then we see more animal stuffing recipes and meals shared in different parts of Europe before coming to the United States. Written records in the US as far back as 1836 mention Thanksgiving stuffing. Yet it was Stove Top’s mass production of boxed stuffing in the 1970s, that many say is what brought about adding stuffing to more American plates.

Moreover, this stuffing recipe will be better than any boxed stuffing! I hope whoever you share this dish with this year will enjoy it like I will!

  • 1 Loaf Gluten-Free Bread 12oz-18oz, sliced into small cubes
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil extra virgin
  • 1/4 cup Butter substitution bellow
  • 1 large Onion, chopped (1 1/4 cups)
  • 3 stalks Celery, chopped (1 cup)
  • 2 cloves Garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp Dried Thyme
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Sage
  • 1/4 – 1/2 tsp Ground Pepper
  • Salt
  • 1 tsp Gluten-Free Soy Sauce optional
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups Chicken Stock


  • Preheat the oven to 300F. Place the cubed bread on a rimmed baking sheet and drizzle with the olive oil. Add a pinch of salt and toss to evenly combine. Bake, stirring every 10 minutes, for 30-35 minutes until dry and slightly toasted. Let cool.
  • In a skillet over medium-low heat, add the butter and melt. Add the onion, celery, and ¼ teaspoon salt and cook until completely soft, about 15 minutes. Add the garlic, thyme, sage, pepper, ¼ teaspoon salt, and gluten-free soy sauce (if using) and cook for another 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • **To make-ahead stop here and store the celery/onion mixture in the fridge until the next day and keep the toasted bread at room temperature.
  • Preheat the oven to 375F. Heat the chicken stock in the microwave or in a skillet until just simmering. Place the eggs in a bowl and whisk to combine. Slowly add the hot stock to the eggs, starting with just a few tablespoons while whisking constantly. Add the rest of the stock while whisking.
  • Place the bread cubes, celery/onion mixture and stock/egg mixture in a large bowl and gently stir to combine. Pour into a greased 9×13 baking dish and cover tightly with tin foil.
  • Bake covered for 30 minutes. Uncover and continue to bake for another 10-15 minutes until golden and toasted on top. Serve and enjoy!


MAKE IT DAIRY-FREE: Use vegan butter in place of the regular butter.
MAKE IT SOY-FREE: Omit the soy sauce.
Most of this stuffing can be made in advance. I like to toast the bread and make the celery/onion mixture the night before. Let the bread sit at room temperature until the next day and refrigerate the onion/celery mixture. Then just make the egg/stock mixture, mix everything together and bake!

I have been using the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for the last few weeks and It has helped me so much. I struggle quite a bit with work related stress. When I'm in the chamber I feel completely relaxed, so much so that I can bring my laptop inside and work without stressing. The calmness I feel in the chamber lasts for the remainder of the day as well. I have found too, the more consistent I am with sessions throughout the week the better I feel. The office staff seems well trained in running the tanks too, so I feel safe. I see Dr. Kilcup as well for my brain and gut health. Until now, I don't think I've ever known what "normal" or "healthy" feels like. Thank you all, sincerely!

I am very grateful to have found Dr. Kilcup and be his patient for the last couple of years. He has helped me restore my health back after being exposed to toxic mold for years. He helped identify and treat all of my symptoms I was experiencing and address the root problem. I was looking for the right person who could help me heal with natural therapies and supplements and Dr. Kilcup was the perfect fit. Every appointment and session was necessary and one step towards all the progress I made. Dr. Kilcup is a great functional medicine doctor who was also an advocate for my own health and well-being. I never received any care or attention to detail from other Doctors in past experiences except with Dr. Kilcup. Anyone who is seeking a holistic path towards healing or improving their own health should see him.
