                                            (Recipe done 11-23-12)

           

 

 This year’s Thanksgiving we were happy to celebrate the holiday with friends since my son wasn’t able to come home on Military leave.

 

This was the 1st year we didn’t have to cook a turkey. We were in charge of making a  Thanksgiving fixins.

I decided to make all Gluten free fixins………..

                                               (also non Dairy)

  • Cornbread/gluten free stuffing with  sausage & mushrooms
  • Cranberry sauce
  • Cranberry delight(made with gluten free rolled oats)

                                       This is how I made my stuffing !!!!

I started off making the gluten free corn bread

Make sure your cast iron skillet is seasoned.

I coated  mine with Olive Oil.

 

 

 

 

Mix 1 pkg of Gluten free corn bread mix

 

 

 

& a 1/2 cup of Earth balanced butter spread

 

melt the butter spread

         & 1 1/2 cup of non dairy -I used almond milk

 

 

 

Add 2 eggs

 

& melted butter spread

 

 

 

 

Mix until batter is all well combined

 

   Place into the iron skillet

 

 

 

   Spread evenly

 

         Bake cornbread

 

   for 25 minutes in a preheated oven

                                                         at  350 degree F

 

  Let cool and melt Earth balance spread

  on top of corn bread

Once cooled cut corn bread into cubes

 

 

 

 

 

I’m adding  Aleia’s gluten free savory stuffing

 

to the corn bread

 

 

 

I picked herbs from my garden 

  Sage, Rosemary & Parsley

  I washed the herbs

 

 

 

 

 

 

And set them aside to dry

I place 1 sprig of rosemary

into the vegetable broth

 

 

 

                                       Cover and simmer on low for 10 minutes 

                                                      then remove rosemary

 

 

 

 

 

 

Clean the mushrooms

 

Dice the mushrooms in small pieces

 

 

Dice 1/4 of an onion

 

I’m using Italian Turkey sausage

 

    Remove casing from the  sausage

 

Once remove then brown the sausage in a skillet

 

 

   Saute diced onion & garlic in olive oil & butter spread

Chop the herbs ….

 

 

 

 

  Add herbs to the turkey sausage

 

 

  Add onion & garlic to the sausage

 

Add poultry seasoning to broth

 

 

 

 

      Saute mushrooms in olive oil & butter spread

 

 

 

  Add garlic salt to the mushrooms

 

 

Add the turkey sausage mixture to the stuffing

 

Add salt & pepper

  Add mushrooms to the stuffing

 

 

 

   Stir stuffing until all is well combined while

ladling the broth into the stuffing

 

 

 

Place stuffing into a baking dish

 

 

Cover with aluminum foil 

  Bake @ 350 degree F

For 45 minutes then uncover and bake for another 15 minutes

 

Ready to eat ~Yum !
