                                            (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
