Corn Bread Stuffing- Gluten Free and Dairy Free

Thanksgiving is right around the corner and one of my favorite side dishes is stuffing. I grew up enjoying boxed stuffing and on occasion homemade. When I first went gluten free I could not find boxed stuffing, but about a year later a few came out. When your in a pinch they are great but nothing beats homemade on Thanksgiving and Christmas. 

This year I wanted to try something new and create a gluten and dairy free corn bread stuffing for the holidays. You could most certainly use regular gluten free in place of the cornbread, but I enjoy the extra flavor it gives.

One of the things that I love the most about this recipe is the simplicity. It only calls for a few ingredients and then some dried herbs that you likely keep on hand in your pantry. 

I like to make the cornbread ahead of time and freeze it. I typically keep an extra one in the freezer at all times and serve it with Chili.

The chili is very easy to make in your Instant Pot and when you have premade cornbread dinner is easy.

You will want to give the cornbread some time to dry out a bit. You can do this by cubing it the day before and leaving it out on the counter. You can also just broil the cubes in your oven. Watch it closely though!

You don’t have to limit stuffing to just a holiday dinner. It accompanies baked chicken, or a whole chicken very well.

This stuffing is the perfect side dish for everyone (including those who are not gluten and dairy free) that they will all love and enjoy. Feel confident putting this on your table for any holiday dinner.

Feel free to add some ground sausage or leftover turkey into it to create a more hearty side dish.
