Gluten-Free Holiday Meal Tips

Turkey & Gravy: make a homemade turkey stock with the turkey parts you will not be using and thicken your pan gravy with cornstarch instead of flour to make a gluten-free entree.

Cranberry Sauce: make your own sauce using fresh cranberries, sugar, water, and some grated orange rind to add a unique twist.

Stuffing: See this recipe for a naturally gluten free stuffing: wild rice stuffing

Vegetable Side Dish: many are naturally gluten free, the trick will be reading ingredient labels to make sure any added ingredients are gluten free. Make some pan roasted brussels sprouts with bacon and shallots.

Potato Side Dish: Roast some potatoes in the oven, make mashed potatoes, or baked potatoes. Again, read labels if you will be adding ingredients!

Dessert: Serve fresh fruit and cheese or make a crustless pumpkin pie! Bake until it no longer jiggles and serve the crustless pumpkin pie in individual small ramekins for a unique and playful dessert.
