The holidays are upon us and I am so excited to share this new gluten free stuffing recipe with you. It is chock full of fresh herbs and the flavor is absolutely incredible!! Franz sent me their gluten free multigrain and it is the perfect bread for this gluten free stuffing! Their loaves of bread are so soft, which makes the bread cubes really really good in this stuffing recipe.

I am so excited to share another delicious recipe featuring my favorite Franz Gluten Free Bread. This recipe is timely with the holidays quickly approaching and I know you will be ready to tackle homemade stuffing this year!!
One of the reasons I love Franz Gluten Free for this recipe is because of how soft their bread is. They toast up beautifully and it helps keep your stuffing in cube form. Your stuffing won't get super mushy and it makes a great presentation on your Thanksgiving table!
You can find Franz gluten free breads, bagels, buns and more on their website, or Costco Stores in the Bay Area, Midwest, and in the Northwest.
Grab fresh herbs like thyme, rosemary, and sage. These are my favorite herbs that really accent the flavor of turkey.
Place the loaf of bread on a cutting board and cut it into cubes. You can vary the size of your cubes. I like to use 1" to 1 1/2" size cubes. Bake the cubes to get them crisp.
In a pan, heat oil on medium heat. Add butter or light oil, chicken sausage, onion, and garlic and cook until the sausage is cooked and the onions are clear. (This will depend on the brand of sausage you use.)
Can you use pork sausage?
You can easily swap out the chicken sausage for pork sausage if you prefer. Because pork sausage is fattier, make sure to drain off some of the grease before adding to the bread cubes.
Add fresh herbs, salt, and pepper and cook 2 more minutes.
Add bread cubes, sausage mixture, melted butter, and broth to a large bowl and toss to coat. Place the gluten free sausage stuffing mixture into a baking dish and bake for 25-30 minutes.
Can you make this stuffing vegan?
You can definitely make this vegan by using vegan butter, vegetable broth, and optional meat-free sausage.
