Halloween is past, and we have now started the countdown to the holidays. (Yikes!) This month at the Gluten-Free Menu Swap, we’ll be sharing ideas about gluten-free foods for the holidays. This week’s theme is Breads, Dressings, and Stuffings.
For some, this is the most difficult thing to manage at family and friends holiday gatherings. I’m curious to find out how everyone deals with it. Our family is fine with just avoiding it all together. The extra effort it takes to make the gluten-free bread just adds more preparation time needed for a big family dinner. I’d rather spend the extra time on turkey and desserts. However, if I’m sharing the cooking responsibilities with other family members, then I may take the time for rolls or stuffing.
If you’re organized, you can always make the bread in advance and freeze it. There are some great recipes and cookbooks to help you with tried and tested gluten-free recipes.

Gluten-free breads are also now available in many grocery stores. That has become my preferred choice for holiday meals and quick meals at home, too. The picture above is of Udi’s Dinner Rolls. Just 10 minutes in the oven at 400º, and they are perfectly light and crispy. You’ll find them in the freezer section of your grocery store. I also enjoy Schar Baquettes and Ciabatta Rolls. Schar Sub Sandwich Rolls are great for making sandwiches with leftover turkey, too!
Gluten-free dressings and stuffing mixes are also available at the grocery stores. It’s pretty simple to make your own by cutting gluten-free bread into cubes, and lightly toasting in the oven. But, how convenient to purchase it, so it’s one less thing to make for your dinner.
