Prepare this traditional gluten-free stuffing recipe in a slow cooker (crockpot), and you free up valuable shelf space in your oven for roasting turkey and baking pies! This recipe is adapted to gluten-free diets from a recipe by Linda Larsen from the Guide to Busy Cooks.

What You'll Need

  • 1 cup butter or your favorite dairy-free butter substitute
  • 2 cups chopped onion
  • 2 cups chopped celery
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • 2 (8 ounces) cans sliced mushrooms, drained
  • 12 cups day-old bread cubes, dried overnight (about 1 pound of gluten-free bread)
  • 1 teaspoon gluten-free poultry seasoning
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried sage leaves
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon gluten-free garlic powder
  • 3 1/2 cups gluten-free chicken or gluten-free turkey broth

How to Make It

  1. To dry gluten-free bread, let cubed bread stand, uncovered overnight on a wire rack, or bake in a 200 degree F oven for about 20 minutes, until dry but not browned.
  2. Melt butter over low heat in a large skillet. Add onions, celery, parsley, and mushrooms. Saute for about 3 minutes while stirring to prevent burning.
  3. Place bread cubes in a large bowl. Add vegetable mixture and seasonings to bread and toss well. Pour in about 1/4 cup broth at a time, gently stirring to moisten bread cubes. Continue to add gradually add broth until ingredients are moist. (Avoid over-moistening to prevent "soggy" dressing.)
  1. Add eggs and stir with a large spatula to thoroughly blend. Spoon dressing into a 5-6 quart slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for about 6 hours. Check dressing periodically and drizzle with more gluten-free broth if the dressing appears to be drying out.
