Wow! This year has flown by and I can’t believe that it is already Thanksgiving! This year it is all about making everything “Super Easy”. I decided to try Trader Joe’s Gluten-Free Stuffing Mix. It is in the Fearless Flyer this week for $5.99. The mix contains the toasted Gluten-Free bread cubes and seasoning. I love my stuffing or dressing with a bit more heartiness so I like to add locally made fresh sausage. I used sage sausage without the casing. You could also use rosemary garlic or something savory that will compliment the meal. I cooked the sausage up with olive oil, onion, fennel, and garlic. I then tossed the bread cubes in a bowl with some melted butter, olive oil and the seasoning mix. I added the mix to the pan with the sausage and then added the celery. I added approximately 3/4 cup of Gluten-Free chicken broth to it and mixed well – add a little more if you like your stuffing/dressing a bit softer.
I preheated the oven to 350 and cooked it in the oven for 30-35 minutes.
3/4 cup Gluten-Free Chicken or Turkey broth – Pacific Foods
1/4 cup +2 tablespoons olive oil
3-4 tablespoons of butter
1 medium yellow onion diced
3 garlic cloves chopped
3-4 stalks chopped celery
1 small fennel chopped and use the frond
1 lb sage or rosemary garlic sausage without the casing – pork or chicken is perfect!
I know what you are thinking, I am calling this stuffing when I cooked in on the stove and in the oven. So technically it is dressing but call it what you will. I call it deliciously super easy Gluten-Free Stuffing!
