Read on to see how to make gluten free dairy free stuffing, tips for making it more of less moist, and how to add variations to the recipe.

How to make gluten free stuffing

Making gluten free stuffing is easy to do. To be completely honest, this was the first time that I had actually made stuffing ever, and it turned out great. Here are the steps:

  • Preheat your oven
  • Chop and saute your onions, celery, and mushrooms with the dairy free butter and seasonings
  • Cube your gluten free dairy free bread (we used BFree white bread)
  • Stir together the bread cubes, sauteed veggies, and chicken broth and spread into an oiled 9×13 baking dish
  • Dot the top of the stuffing with some pieces of dairy free butter, cover with foil
  • Bake at 375 for 30 minutes, uncover and bake again for 10 minutes
  • Serve warm

Depending on how moist you like your homemade stuffing, you can adjust the amount of broth in your recipe.

I originally made this recipe with 1-1/2 cups broth, but felt that it was a bit too moist, so I did 1 cup the next time I made it, and it was slightly dry. So you can use 1-1/4 cup for just the right amount of moisture.

But you can use a little less or a little more broth if you prefer your stuffing to be a bit on the drier side or the more moist side.

One thing to note is that the amount of chicken bone broth you use in this gluten free stuffing recipe will depend on the type of bread you use. We used the white BFree bread in this easy stuffing recipe, but different types of bread are more dry than others. So if you use a different type of gluten free bread, that might affect how much broth you need to add.

But the amount of broth difference between gluten free bread varieties shouldn’t be very much, probably only about a few Tablespoons.

For our dairy free and gluten free stuffing, we used fresh bread instead of dry or stale bread, so the amount of broth we used was for fresh bread. If you use stale bread that is more dry, you may have to use a few more Tablespoons of chicken broth.

We used the Country Crock Plant Butter sticks with avocado oil in this recipe (we’ve been loving these!), but you can use your favorite non-dairy margarine or dairy free butter for this stuffing recipe.

Please note that some of the Country Crock Plant Butters have almond oil or soy in them, so be sure to read the labels on them if you choose to try that brand of dairy free butter.

Variations for our gluten free stuffing

You can have some fun with this recipe and add your favorite things. If you love dried cranberries in your stuffing, you can add some to this recipe easily (about 1/8 to 1/4 cup to start out with).

If you’re not a fan of mushrooms, you can replace the mushrooms in this stuffing with additional chopped onion and celery instead.

Want to make this stuffing vegan? You can replace the chicken broth with vegetable broth easily.

There are a lot of variations with this recipe, make it unique to your family and you’ll make this every holiday!
