On Thanksgiving, Turkey might get top billing but it’s often the side dishes that steal the show. If you avoid gluten, however, it can feel like many of the traditional Thanksgiving dishes — stuffing, gravy, rolls — are off-limits.
Thankfully, it doesn’t need to be this way! Here’s a list of ten gluten-free dishes and desserts that are perfect for your Thanksgiving table.
1. Gluten-Free Bread Stuffing
Traditional bread stuffing goes gluten-free. This easy recipe includes sausage and sage but you can customize it to fit your family’s tastes.
