Wild Rice Stuffing with sausage and dried cherries make a delicious addition to your Thanksgiving dinner. This recipe also has the benefit of being gluten free.
I love Thanksgiving. Nothing is better than having the entire family together to celebrate. We have two family members that do not eat gluten, so I love finding delicious Thanksgiving recipes that we can all enjoy. This gluten free stuffing is one of those dishes.
Gluten Free Stuffing
Stuffing is one of our favorite Thanksgiving side dishes. Most stuffing recipes are made with bread. We have tried substituting gluten free bread, but don’t always love the results. So this year I am excited to be able to serve my gluten free eaters Wild Rice Stuffing. It is delicious and in fact I am sure my non gluten free eaters aren’t going to be able to resist it either.
This wild rice stuffing is full of lots of delicious flavors and great texture. The base of the dish is a combination of wild rice and brown rice. Add in onions, celery, dried cherries and pecans and you’ve got some great texture. The thing that really gives this dressing great flavor though is the addition of the pork sausage.
I used Jones Dairy Sausage for this recipe because it is gluten free. You can substitute your favorite gluten free sausage.
