If this is your first gluten free Thanksgiving I recommend you keep it simple and make yourself a pie and some stuffing to share, those two are pretty easy to make and don’t require much leg work.

I know I know Thanksgiving is all about the food. It’s about sitting at the dinner table and enjoying being together with good food. Some would argue that food MAKES Thanksgiving and if that’s your philosophy that’s fine. I’m not going to try to sell you on the idea that it’s going to be easy the first time around but I will tell you is that you are in control of how you want feel.

Don’t get hung up on the recipes and foods that maybe you can’t make because they take a really long time to prepare or require special ingredients that you might not have on hand, skip those, there’s plenty of naturally gluten-free fixings and dishes that you can make.

With time you will adjust to the gluten free lifestyle and become a better cook or find products or services that make it easier for you to all enjoy all the food that you want to eat but just because you don’t have everything you want doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a day with friends, family and loved ones.

I tried to put together gluten free Thanksgiving recipes that any home-cook would find useful although if there’s anything that I missed that you’d like for me to add to this page just leave me a comment below and I will do my best to find a tried-and-true recipe for you to enjoy on Thanksgiving.

Some of these gluten free Thanksgiving recipes are mine but most of them are from friends or colleagues of mine.

At the end of the post I also included a list of gluten free turkeys and a video on how to make gluten free gravy, two different ways.

I wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving.

    Would love to make stuffed mushrooms with gluten free bread crumbs that resemble the real ones. Any suggestions

  • Susie

    Just found your site. Can’t wait to try some of these.

    great video, I learned something about the temp of the broth when adding the slurry. This will be my 7th GF thanksgiving and I always host, but I always hosted before celiac too. That way I can control everything. Alexia’s has the hands down best GF stuffing I have tasted. It’s the real deal. You can get it on or at your local healthfood store, sometimes. I am making a cornbread stuffing this year and just subbing GF King Arthur flour for regular. Martha Stewarts site has recipes for stuffing if making it from scratch, ie, how many cups dry cubes to butter to broth.
    By the way Funions (the salty greasy oniony snack in gas stations) makes a great substitute for french onions crispy things and progresso’s cream of mushroom is GF, just add more Funions as it is not concentrated.

    @Karen: Have made GF stuffed mushrooms before that were delicious. Just use GF bread crumbs in place of regular bread. Mine had onion, garlic, celery, turkey sausage, bread crumbs, thyme, and broth/white wine and a bit of fresh parmesan on top. A little egg helps hold it all together.
