Allergen Information:

This homemade stuffing mix is gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, nut-free, and oat-free. Always check the ingredients on the gluten-free bread you use to ensure it doesn’t have allergens you are allergic to.

Ingredient Notes:

  • Gluten Free Bread – Use your favorite brand. I do not recommend using flavored bread like cinnamon raisin…flavored bread won’t turn out well.
  • Olive Oil – You can use any light oil or butter.
  • Herbs – I use dried herbs for this recipe. Grab the basics like thyme, sage, basil, and oregano.

👀 Sandi Says: I like to make my gluten free stuffing cubes smaller, like a boxed mix.

Step 3: Drizzle the oil over the cubes and toss to coat. Preheat your oven to 325º F. Sprinkle the seasoning over the unseasoned stuffing cubes and mix well.

Step 4: Spread the bread cubes out on a baking sheet. Be sure they are not on top of each other so they bake evenly.

Step 5: Bake the stuffing cubes for 8 minutes, then stir them so the other sides can get toasted.

Step 6: Allow the toasted bread cubes to cool, and then put them into an air-tight container.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What is the best bread to use for stuffing?

That is a tricky question because it depends on what you like. I use gluten-free white bread for stuffing cubes because they are the most neutral in flavor.

Can you freeze these stuffing cubes?

Absolutely. I pop them into a freezer-safe zip-style bag and put them into the freezer.

How long will these stuffing cubes keep fresh?

These stuffing cubes should keep fresh for up to 2 weeks. If you are making ahead longer, you should freeze your cubes.

Can you use fresh herbs?

For this recipe, I recommend using dried herbs so that there isn’t extra moisture coming into the bread cubes. Use the fresh herbs when you make the stuffing.

How to store these gluten-free stuffing cubes:

    Sandi, Thank you, will do! I have since tried it with the Canyon Bakehouse (can’t find Franz here on the east coast!). It came out great! Thank you again!

    Looks good! Has anyone tried using Carbonaut bread? I’m new to gluten-free, so I REALLY need some recommendations on specific brands of bread that worked well with this recipe! I tried the boxed GF stuffing mix and it was horrible, nobody liked it. 🙁 So this time I’m going homemade!
    Can everyone PLEASE reply with what brands of GF bread worked well for stuffing? Thank you!!! 🙂

    1. Hi Laura, I tend to use Trader Joe’s, Franz, or Canyon Bakehouse. I would thing the Carbonaut bread should work, but I haven’t tested it myself. Most people don’t comment a lot so I recommend you join my Gluten Free Living and Recipe Share FB group and ask about this bread there.

  4. How many gluten free loaves of bread do we need to get 5 cups of cubes. If say for example I was wanting to use canyon bakehouse mountain white bread, how many loaves of that would I need?

      1. How much stuffing cubes does this typically produce? I’m looking to make my grandmas recipe but make it gluten free which calls for 18 oz cubed herb stuffing. Would this recipe be enough for that?

  5. 5 stars
    It’s good to know that there are other people out there that have problems with gluten, such as celiac disease.
    This gals recipes always work out for me.
    I did, however; change 1/2 the salt for pepper because I’m not supposed to have that much salt —- but again that’s a personal dietary restriction.
    If you need some good gluten-free recipes this is the site to follow. I have pinned so many of her products and recipes!

      1. Hi Sandi, I can’t figure out where to post a new comment. Can you do this with homemade corn bread? If so what would you change?
