I look forward to Thanksgiving every year for one reason and that is homemade stuffing. I really enjoy making it from scratch, but I know for others it can seem like a daunting task. Every year I write about the gluten-free products that help make our lives a little easier and those options have expanded from stuffing cubes to instant mixes.
I prefer to making stuffing from scratch because it is super easy and cost effective. I make it with a combination of cornbread and bread, so stuffing + dressing = druffing. I share this recipe every year because it is moist, flavorful, and undetectable as gluten free.
For those of you who are looking for convenience, here are some of the new stuffing mixes:
- El’s Kitchen – just announced its newest product: Savory Herb Stuffing. The 10 ounce box sells for $4.99 and it can be ordered directly from the company. This stuffing mix is made from a combination of sorghum, tapioca, white rice, sweet rice, and brown rice flour and it is GFCO certified.
- Olivia’s Croutons – makes Rosemary and Sage Stuffing Cubes, which can be purchased online direct from the company. Thanks Gluten Free Philly for the information.
- Rudi’s Gluten Free – has a new Savory Herb Stuffing Mix that is made from their Original and Multigrain bread and seasoned with savory herbs and spices. A detailed review on this mix can be found on Gluten Freeville’s blog.
- Whole Food Gluten Free Bakehouse – has a new 10 Minute Stuffing Mix that I recently reviewed. I was quite impressed with the layered flavor, how easy it is to prepare, and that it is shelf stable. It is also dairy free and it can easily be made vegan. They also offer Stuffing Cubes.
- Williams-Sonoma – is now offering Stuffing Mix with Herbes de Provence. This new mix can be purchased online, or in store for $14.95 a box.
Of course, these gluten-free mixes/stuffing cubes have been around for a while and they should start making an appearance on a store shelf near you very soon:
- Aleia’s – plain stuffing cubes and savory stuffing cubes
- Garden Fields – stuffing cubes and bread cubes
- Glutino – makes a Corn Bread Stuffing Mix
- Gillian’s Foods – offers a Home-Style Stuffing Mix
- Smart Grain – their Sage Stuffing Mix is on the shelves at most Whole Foods
- Pamela’s Products – cornbread mix is what I use to make homemade stuffing
- Three Bakers – offers a seasoned stuffing mix
Do you make gluten-free stuffing from scratch, or do you use a mix? Have you used any of these mixes?
