A Gluten-Free Thanksgiving: Gluten-free side dishes

Yummy gluten-free holiday side dish ideas for Thanksgiving and ChristmasIt’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 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.

gluten free thanksgiving - andoille stuffing

The holidays just aren’t the holidays here without a nod to our New Orleans roots and gluten-free 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 gluten-free 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. As to how we cook our turkey? Always been a fan of Alton Brown’s brined turkey. Best. Ever. Moist everytime. Unless you’re using a Sous Vide, which is equally awesome and a bit easier to manage.
