I don't know about you, but I don't like using multiple loaves of bread to make gluten-free stuffing - it gets expensive.
Most gluten-free bread loaves are small compared to wheat bread loaves, wouldn't you agree? Also, a gluten-free stuffing mix can get expensive.
Why waste the money when it's easy to make your own gluten-free stuffing mix.
How to make gluten-free stuffing
Let bread slices air dry for 1 to 2 hours, then cut into 1-inch pieces. When you are ready to mix your gluten-free stuffing:
- In a Dutch oven over medium heat, melt butter.
- Add onion and celery and cook until the onion is soft and translucent.
- Stir in thyme, sage, rosemary, salt, and pepper.
- Add bread cubes (24oz. of bread cubes, or 9 cups).
- Stir everything together until he bread cubes are evenly coated.
- Drizzle broth over the bread mixture and toss until well mixed.
- Stuff turkey, or bake in a greased 2.5 qrt casserole dish at 350°F (180°C) for 35 to 45 minutes.
If you don't have a dutch oven, you can make this gluten-free stuffing recipe in a large boiling pot, or pan.

I use Canyon Bakehouse bread in my recipe, but you can use your favorite bread. Just make sure to use equal amounts.
Earlier Canyon Bakehouse came out with a big loaf of bread, their Heritage Style Loaves.
It's wide, it's delicious, and it's my new favorite loaf of bread for making all things related to gluten-free stuffing. You can check out their store locator to see if it's carried in your area.
Canyon Bakehouse loaves are gluten-free, dairy-free, non-GMO, whole grain, and they include clean ingredients.
The Heritage Style Loaf has all the same qualities as the standard loaves, but the slices are much bigger! In this case, bigger is better.
If you're using a different bread weight out 24 oz. or measure out 9 cups of bread cubes.
You can use fresh or stale gluten-free bread in any of these recipes, including this gluten-free stuffing.
Whether you're hosting a gluten-free Easter, Gluten-Free Thanksgiving or Gluten-Free Christmas, or bringing a side to a holiday potluck, this recipe is allergy-friendly and works well with most diets.

Can I use turkey drippings instead of broth?
Heck yeah, you can use turkey drippings instead of broth. The turkey drippings may be a bit stronger in flavor. Consider adding a touch of water to make it more broth-like.
Can I add sausage to this gluten-free stuffing recipe?
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.
You can use a spicy sausage or keep to the flavors and use a breakfast sausage with sage.
I can't have eggs, what egg-free bread do you recommend
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.
