Gluten Free Cornbread Stuffing is a super simple recipe full of flavors of traditional stuffing.
You can’t have Thanksgiving without stuffing in my opinion. Either your a stuffing lover or you’re not. If you’re reading this now I suspect you most certainly are. If you’re looking for an amazingly wonderful gluten free stuffing recipe, you’ve come to the right place. 🙂
I’ve always been very picky about stuffing because I grew up with a grandmother who would make a really delicious Italian sausage stuffing that is out of this world amazing. Her stuffing was the only one I would eat. My mother makes it now and it is fabulous but more work than I wanted to give myself. (I think I will save grandma’s recipe for my cookbook!) So to make life easy, I chose to remove any meat in this stuffing which makes a simple recipe even easier once your cornbread is made. You can obviously use any cornbread you like, but of course I used the pumpkin cornbread recipe I just posted a few days ago. Now in case you’re wondering, this stuffing does not taste like pumpkin much at all. Because of the additional flavors and spices, the slight pumpkin flavor is not prevalent. You could also make the pumpkin cornbread recipe and simply remove the pumpkin if you like.
My kids are not stuffing fans, but the hubby and I are. This recipe is using just half of my pumpkin cornbread recipe. You can certainly just double the ingredients here for the stuffing and use the entire cornbread recipe.
