A Gluten Free Thanksgiving: How To Make a Delicious Gluten Free Turkey Dinner That Everyone Will Lov
Remember that preparing a gluten-free Thanksgiving meal doesn't mean that you can't have or serve all the things you love at this celebratory gathering; you just need to prepare them differently. Read on for recipes that adjust Thanksgiving classics and for delicious sides that just happen to be gluten free to help you plan this year's feast, along with gluten-free tips.
Most turkeys, like our Easy Roasted Dry Brined Turkey, will be a safe bet for the no-gluten crowd. Gravy, on the other hand, is a major red flag because it is usually thickened with flour. In this silky gravy, we say no to gluten and use cornstarch to get that perfect gravy consistency.
Pumpkin pie is definitely the most iconic Thanksgiving dessert, and it shouldn't be skipped just because you don't eat gluten. Instead, swap out the typical pastry or graham cracker crust with this nutty and crunchy crust prepared with crisp rice cereal and ground almonds; it's a delightful gluten-free option.
This easy gluten-free side is all cooked on one sheet pan and is a genius way to get Brussels on your holiday table. Everyone will enjoy the contrasting flavors and textures from the caramelized sprouts, smoky bacon, and sweet roasted orange slices.
If you don't eat gluten, stuffing isn't off the table for you. Just swap the bread for this stuffing that features nutty wild rice studded with jalapeño, pepitas, raisins, and coriander. Delicious baked on its own, it can also be stuffed into the turkey, either option providing that homey good feeling of warm steaming stuffing.
Not all creamy casseroles are off the menu for those who follow a gluten-free diet. In this recipe, the creamy sauce is thickened by reducing half and half with sage and garlic before using it to smother shingled sweet potatoes, then baking the casserole in the oven.
Safely navigate Thanksgiving with this sparkling pink cranberry cocktail in hand by making sure the vodka is gluten-free. If the vodka is pure distilled without any additives, the distilling process should remove all the gluten. It's generally easy to play it safe, as there are plenty of quality brands that specifically state they are gluten-free.
Cranberry relish is a must-have gluten-free sauce to pair with turkey and sides, and this delightful and easy recipe keeps the flavor fresh with sherry vinegar and a mild spiciness from fresh ginger. Make this relish up to a week in advance and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
Adapt your favorite pie by using this gluten-free pie dough that is easy as can be to make. Don't bother buying different gluten-free flours and trying to make your own blend; instead, purchase a tried-and-true gluten-free flour blend. Make sure the blend has a one-to-one swap ratio with regular flour or buy our favorite brand Cup4Cup, which never disappoints.
If gluten didn't get the invite to your Thanksgiving feast, no worries. Keep the mashed potatoes flowing, and try some of these easy swaps to make gluten-free stuffing, cheesy baked green beans, and crustless pumpkin pie that everyone will love. Living gluten-free thankfully doesn't mean you have to skip out on your favorite Thanksgiving side dishes. Whether you're celiac, trying to accommodate Thanksgiving guests, or simply needing to cut out gluten, we've got plenty of amazing gluten-free recipes to help make your holiday all the more delicious.
Not gonna lie, our gluten-free recipes are just as good (if not better than!) the traditional Thanksgiving recipes. And we're oh so grateful that so many of the classics are naturally gluten-free, like roast turkey, mashed sweet potatoes, and garlic mashed potatoes. The main things you'll want to watch out for when making gluten-free Thanksgiving foods are flour and bread crumbs. But luckily, you can swap in your favorite gluten-free alternative to make a gluten-free pie crust, sweet potato casserole with marshmallows and pecans, and a green bean casserole that's safe for everyone. What's even easier? Simply going crustless on that apple pie by making our crustless apple pie instead! Easy = always more delicious.
This is one side dish that will make everyone freak out (and run for seconds). If you have vegetarian guests, feel free to skip the bacon. We're usually all about the smoky flavor, but for this dish, it's all about the CHEESE.Get the Cheesy Brussels Sprout Bake recipe.
Going on the keto diet doesn't mean you have to miss out on your favorite holiday dessert. With a few modifications and a gluten-free crust, our easy pumpkin cheesecake becomes keto-friendly! Pumpkin spice season can resume as normal. Get the Keto Pumpkin Cheesecake recipe.
From your favorite holiday breakfast recipes, easy gluten-free bread recipes, traditional side dishes, and show-stopping desserts. I promise you will not have to miss out on any of your favorite Thanksgiving foods because you are gluten-free. Many of the recipes also include a dairy-free option.
Gluten-Free Buttermilk Biscuits Dairy-Free Option If you want to skip out on making yeast rolls, which take a little time, try my gluten-free biscuits! Biscuits are so easy to make and go perfectly with all of your Thanksgiving dinner favorites.
Gluten-Free Cornbread Stuffing Dairy-Free Option The classic Southern recipe for cornbread stuffing made gluten-free! This recipe includes my gluten-free cornbread recipe and also has a dairy-free option.

You can also use homebaked gluten-free bread. I have two easy recipes. One is for oven-baked Gluten-Free Bread and my other recipe is for an easy Gluten-Free Bread Machine Recipe.
If you are going to use homemade gluten-free bread make sure to bake it at least a day in advance so it has time to cool completely. You may want to slice the bread and let it dry out overnight. Homebaked gluten-free bread is a lot softer than store-bought gluten-free bread.
This gluten-free stuffing recipe has no additional dairy added to it, so make sure if you need to be both gluten-free and dairy-free that you use a gluten-free bread that is also dairy-free. Most of my family is also dairy-free (me included) so I always try and have a dairy-free option in my recipes.
Stuffing is one of the most important side dishes for a holiday or Thanksgiving dinner. Serve it alongside gluten-free Sweet Potato Casserole, Green Bean Casserole, turkey, Gravy, Dinner Rolls, and of course Pumpkin Pie for dessert!

Hi there, only my second time making a turkey and my husband was recently diagnosed as celiac so first time with gluten free holidays. What would be different in this recipe if I wanted to stuff the turkey with it?
Hi Tamara, have you tried the Chebe brand mixes? They are made with tapioca. Read the labels as some have cheese or nonfat dry mix. We are not gluten free but we love these bread and pizza dough mixes. They are a little pricey, but worth it.

Yes, you can add sausage to this gluten-free stuffing recipe. Every once in a while my family requests that I add sausage to switch things up. If you want to add sausage, simply brown a half pound of sausage (more or less to taste) and mix it into the stuffing mix before you bake it.
I haven't tried an egg-free bread in this recipe, but I know that Katz and Schar both make gluten-free, egg-free breads. A lot of my readers have had great results with Schar bread in gluten-free stuffing recipes, especially with their deli style breads.
