This gluten-free stuffing recipe with sausage is a classic, simple holiday side dish - the perfect Thanksgiving stuffing! First thing’s first – dressing or stuffing? 😉 Just kidding..my husband (the English teacher) was happy to inform me that this gluten-free stuffing recipe with sausage should technically be called a gluten-free dressing recipe because dressing is when it’s baked on the outside and stuffing is when it’s actually cooked inside a turkey. Yeah, yeah…semantics. 😉 No matter what you call it, this gluten-free stuffing is a perfect addition to your Thanksgiving menu!

Gluten-Free Stuffing Recipe Notes

  • You can use any gluten-free bread you desire (or even regular bread, if no one at your Thanksgiving dinner needs to avoid gluten). I love a good gluten-free whole grain bread for a little extra flavor, fiber, and often a little extra texture from seeds.
  • You can totally make this vegetarian – just use vegetable broth and omit the sausage, or use a vegetarian sausage alternative.
  • You can use any type of sausage you prefer – pork, turkey, chicken, etc. Even flavored sausages can work, just know any flavors in the sausage will be noticeable in the gluten-free stuffing!
  • To make in advance, I would toast the bread cubes and prepare the sausage vegetable mixture and store both separately. Prior to baking I would toss together the sausage vegetable mixture, bread cubes, and broth, then pop it in the oven.

Ingredients

  • 12 slices gluten-free bread sliced into small cubes
  • 1 pound sausage
  • 1 medium yellow or white onion chopped
  • 4 stalks celery chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 3/4 cups low-sodium chicken broth (divided)
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp ground dried sage
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp dried rosemary

Instructions

  1. Toast bread cubes on baking sheet at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes until firm and crisp (length of toasting time will depend on how fresh your bread is - I used a very fresh loaf and needed 15 minutes). 

  2. Brown sausage in a large rimmed skillet. Remove and place on a plate lined with paper towels to absorb excess grease.

  3. Deglaze pan with 1/4 cup broth. Saute onion, celery, and garlic until tender and translucent. Add spices. Add browned sausage back to the pan. 

  4. In a large bowl combine sausage and vegetable mixture, toasted bread cubes, and remaining 1 1/2 cups broth. 

  5. Prepare a 9x13-inch baking dish by lightly greasing it with olive oil. Spread stuffing mixture inside pan. 

  6. Bake for 50-60 minutes or until stuffing is crisp, crunchy, and golden brown on top.

  7. Serve immediately. If needing to reheat, use the oven so the stuffing will stay crispy on top!
