Gluten- free Fixins ...Gobble ...Gobble

                     This year's Thanksgiving we were happy to celebrate the holiday
               with friends since my son wasn't able to come home on Military leave.

                                  This was the 1st year we didn't have to cook a turkey. 
                                We were in charge of making a  Thanksgiving fixins.
                                             I decided to make all Gluten free fixins...........
                                                                (also non Dairy)
  • Cornbread/gluten free stuffing with  sausage & mushrooms
  • Cranberry sauce
  • Cranberry delight(made with gluten free rolled oats)
                                                    This is how I made my stuffing !!!!
                                         I started off making the gluten free corn bread
Make sure your cast iron skillet is seasoned.
I coated  mine with Olive Oil.

                                           Mix 1 pkg of Gluten free corn bread mix

                                                 & a 1/2 cup of Earth balanced butter spread

                                                              melt the butter spread
                                              & 1 1/2 cup of non dairy -I used almond milk

                                                                  Add 2 eggs

                                                              & melted butter spread

                                               Mix until batter is all well combined

                                                          Place into the iron skillet

                                                                      Spread evenly

                                                                     Bake cornbread

                                                          for 25 minutes in a preheated oven
                                                                       at  350 degree F

                                                Let cool and melt Earth balance spread
                                                            on top of corn bread
                                                Once cooled cut corn bread into cubes

                                    I'm adding  Aleia's gluten free savory stuffing

                                                         to the corn bread

                                                       I picked herbs from my garden 
                                                           Sage, Rosemary & Parsley
                                                                 I washed the herbs

                                                         And set them aside to dry
                                                        I place 1 sprig of rosemary
                                                           into the vegetable broth

                                        Cover and simmer on low for 10 minutes 
                                                      then remove rosemary

Clean the mushrooms

                                               Dice the mushrooms in small pieces

                                                               Dice 1/4 of an onion
I'm using Italian Turkey sausage
                                                   Remove casing from the  sausage

                                      Once remove then brown the sausage in a skillet

                                 Saute diced onion & garlic in olive oil & butter spread
                                                             Chop the herbs ....

                                                 Add herbs to the turkey sausage

                                                Add onion & garlic to the sausage

                                                  Add poultry seasoning to broth

                                       Saute mushrooms in olive oil & butter spread

                                                   Add garlic salt to the mushrooms

                                         Add the turkey sausage mixture to the stuffing

                                                                 Add salt & pepper
                                                    Add mushrooms to the stuffing


                                         Stir stuffing until all is well combined while
                                                 ladling the broth into the stuffing

                                                     Place stuffing into a baking dish

                                                        Cover with aluminum foil 
                                                              Bake @ 350 degree F
 For 45 minutes then uncover and bake for another 15 minutes

                                                             Ready to eat ~Yum !
