Gluten-Free Turkey — Menu Plan Nov. 25

By · Print This Post Print This Post

TurkeyIt’s Turkey Week at the Gluten-Free Menu Swap…and for most of us in the U.S. Most of us will be enjoying roasted turkey for Thanksgiving meals on Thursday.

I think most fresh and frozen turkeys you buy in the grocery stores are now gluten-free, but you should still read the labels! Some turkeys are plumped with broth to make them nice and juicy. Broths can be made with wheat starch, so you still have to be careful which turkey you purchase. In addition, be aware of gravy mixes and pre-made gravies that may contain gluten. I did some research to give you a head start in your search for gluten-free turkeys and gravy recipes this week. Hope it helps you get through the Turkey Week, gluten free and healthy.

Gluten-Free Turkeys to look for in the stores:
