Gluten Free Stuffing Cups

If you’ve read my Guide to a Stress Free Thanksgiving, then you’ve seen my tips for keeping your food safe and avoiding cross contamination. These gluten free stuffing cups don’t only taste amazing, they are also perfect for avoiding cross-contamination at the dinner table.

Cooked in their own individual cups, everyone can have their own individual serving without worry! Plus, they taste amazing and are easy to make!

Schar Artisan Bread

The base of these delicious gluten free stuffing cups is Schar Artisan White Bread (feel free to use multi-grain if you prefer!).

Generally stuffing is made from stale dry bread. If you don’t have time to let it dry out on its own, try toasting it in a low heat oven for a bit to give it time to dry out.

I love the Schar Artisan White Bread for sandwiches and it is the perfect platform for soaking up all the stuffing goodness!

These gluten free stuffing cups are a cinch to make. I started with celery, apples, onions and herbs. Sautee together and then toss with bread and eggs.


If you added some ground sausage I wouldn’t tell anyone :).
