It’s about that time again where we start digging out the traditional recipes for our holiday meals and start preparing for the feast! Our family recipes need a bit of altering this year now that we have a gluten-intolerant family member, so I set out to make everything we usually do, but so they still taste awesome and everyone at the table can enjoy them. The full recipes for these dishes are posted on Celebrations.com.
The holidays just aren’t the holidays here without a nod to our New Orleans roots and Andouille Sausage Stuffing. If we’ve got a crowd, I always make an extra pan just to make sure we have leftovers! Figuring out how to make the cornbread gluten-free was the key to making this gluten-free and great.
Another of my thanksgiving day favors is our Sweet Potato Soufflé. Really, you can never go wrong when you start with a stick of butter and two cups of sugar. The flour was removed from the crumble on top, making it safe to eat.
Creamy casseroles are a little bit of work to make gluten-free, so I did sacrifice the deep fried onions and cream of mushroom soup in favor of what might even be a better choice in this Garlic Green Bean recipe.
Then, of course, there is the turkey. Every year we brine our turkey, and haven’t found one that beats Alton Brown’s!
