This Gluten-Free Stuffing Recipe Is Even Better Than The Real Thing

And here's the thing: I'm not even gluten free. But it's so damn good.

Hi, I'm Emily! I freakin' love Thanksgiving.

So last year, I made the bizarre decision to cook the entire Thanksgiving feast. My mom helped a bit with the turkey, but I pretty much took over.

My uncle, David, was joining us and, by that time, he had entirely cut gluten out of his diet.

He'd made the decision a few years back, and all of his stomach problems that he he had experienced since he was my age just... disappeared.

I didn't want him to miss out, so in addition to the regular stuffing I made for the rest of us, I made David his own gluten-free stuffing, too.

But I ended up loving it the most. I ate at least three servings of it because it was so. fucking. good.

Better than the regular version, not even gonna lie.

Honestly, I'm pretty sure this recipe would be incredible even with ~glutinous~ bread. But as-is, it has a base of kabocha squash, sage, and onion which means much more flavor than your average stuffing.

I'm also convinced the Udi's gluten-free bread I used helped make it so awesome.

It's perfect for stuffing because it gets crispier than regular bread, and it's easy to chop into small squares that mix perfectly with all the other yummy stuff. (Also, I'm not gluten-free but I think it's delicious.)

Best of all? I asked my uncle if he remembered the stuffing and he totally did.

Yaaaas.
