  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 4 celery ribs, chopped
  • 2 medium onions, chopped
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons rubbed sage
  • 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1-1/2 pounds day-old gluten-free bread, cubed
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) chicken broth or vegetable broth


  1. Preheat oven to 325°. In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add celery and onions; cook and stir until tender, 8-10 minutes. Stir in parsley, salt, sage, poultry seasoning, thyme and pepper. In a large bowl, toss bread cubes with vegetable mixture. Combine eggs and broth; add to bread mixture and toss to coat.
  2. Transfer to a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Cover and bake for 40 minutes. Uncover and bake until a thermometer inserted in center reads 160°, 15-20 minutes. If desired, top with additional parsley just before serving.

Gluten-Free Stuffing Tips

What are some variations of this gluten-free stuffing recipe?

For a vegan option, use an egg replacer according to the package, or omit the eggs and increase the amount of broth slightly to add more moisture. For a dairy-free version, substitute your favorite vegan butter. Of course, if you don’t need to worry about eating gluten-free, this recipe will work with regular bread as well—but if you do, here are more recipes for a gluten-free Thanksgiving.

What else can I mix into gluten-free stuffing?

Stuffing is one of those foods that’s easy and fun to make your own. Herbs, spices, veggies and mix-ins can all be adjusted to your palate! Dried fall fruits can make a tasty addition, and some cayenne can bring some spice. To make this stuffing more hearty, add 8 ounces of pork sausage to your celery and onion mixture.

How do you make day-old gluten-free bread?

Have fresh bread instead of day-old? Not to worry. Cut the bread into 1-inch cubes and toss them into a 300 degree oven until they’re dry and crisp, about 45 minutes. You can also leave your cubed bread out, uncovered, overnight. The key to keeping your stuffing from being mushy is that dried-out bread, so be sure not to skip this step.
