Is it too early to start planning your gluten free Thanksgiving side dishes? I know it is early for American’s to talk turkey, but the day is quickly approaching! I am originally from Canada. So- this past Monday was Canadian Thanksgiving! Our family celebrated with some yummy dishes! I hope you enjoy them as much as we did. I made a traditional roasted turkey as well as a Spiral Ham. YUMM!!!
Here are the some of the side items I made for our Gluten Free Thanksgiving!
GLUTEN FREE STUFFING:
We like a meaty stuffing. I used a gluten free bread as my base. I cut it in cubes and toasted it in the oven with a little olive oil.
3 loaves gluten free bread
1 lb pork sausage- cooked and crumbled.
One pkg baby portabella mushrooms- chopped as fine as you like them.
1 cup dried cranberries
One yellow onion chopped
1 clove of garlic chopped
Red pepper flakes to taste
1/2 bottle white wine
1/2 box chicken stock
Cube and toast bread. Drizzle with olive oil and toast in oven. Cook sausage. Add other ingredients except wine and chicken stock. Combine with bread. Butter a deep baking dish and put ingredients into dish. Pour wine and stock over bread. Sprinkle with Parmesan Cheese. Bake in oven for about 45 min. Enjoy!

BACON BRUSSEL SPROUTS:
Most people I know don’t like Brussel Sprouts. However most people who eat these do like them! They are salty and delicious!
1 large bunch of brussel sprouts
A package bacon- chopped
1 yellow onion- chopped
1. Wash and chop brussel sprouts.
2. Lay on baking sheet.
3. Add the chopped onion to the brussel sprouts.
4. Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Sprinkle with S & P. I like to use my hands to make sure everything gets coated evenly.
5. Bake in oven at 375 degrees until they get a little brown and crispy.

GLUTEN FREE PUMPKIN PIE:
I usually buy the Whole Foods premade gluten free pie crusts, however I didn’t have time to drive to Whole Foods. So I tried to make the Bob’s Red Mill pie crust. It worked out ok but it was a little labor intensive compared to just filling premade crusts lol! For the Pie filling I followed the recipe on the can of Organic Pumpkin.
1 can Organic Pumpkin
1 Can Organic Sweetened Condensed Milk
Pumpkin Pie Spice
Mix and pour into crust

I hope you enjoy these side items for a Gluten Free Thanksgiving! Happy Thanksgiving to all of my Canadian Family and Friends! And my American Family and Friends too!
Best Wishes for Gluten Free Dishes,
