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 because we have a gluten-free family member, namely me, so I set out to make everything we usually do, but so they still taste awesome and everyone at the table can enjoy them. Year after year, stuffing is a favorite gluten-free holiday side dish!
This gluten-free Andouille Sausage Stuffing recipe made its appearance at one of our first “lost socks” Thanksgivings over 15 years ago. We didn’t make the 900 mile trek home to Virginia, so we had all our family-less friends over for a huge holiday feast every year. One Thanksgiving, we sat 20 people at our table! Everyone always brought their family’s special dish or one that represented their background.
We made a nod to our New Orleans roots and Andouille Sausage Stuffing and it’s been a hit ever since. In fact, there is much grumbling if we DON’T make it. And since it’s gluten-free now, everyone can enjoy it! 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. You can always buy cornbread in a box, but it’s worth the 5 extra minutes to make it from scratch.
