The Best Gluten-Free Cornbread Dressing!
What Would Thanksgiving Be Without Gluten-Free Cornbread Stuffing?
Cornbread dressing just like your grandmother used to make ... but 100 percent gluten free! Yes, it is possible, and more delicious than you remember! This cornbread dressing is something to be truly thankful for this Thanksgiving!
A good gluten-free dressing must naturally start with a good gluten-free cornbread!
4 cups cornmeal
1 1/2 tablespoon baking powder
2 tsp salt
2 cups buttermilk (or more)
1/4 cup oil
Pour the oil into a 9x12 baking pan. Turn the oven on 450* and put the pan in the oven to preheat while mixing the batter. Don't skip preheating the oil! This gives a nice crispy crust to the cornbread.
Mix the rest of the ingredients well. The batter should be thin and runny (add more buttermilk as needed). Pour batter carefully into hot oil and return to oven. Bake 12-15 minutes, until golden on top and crispy brown on the edges.
Bake the cornbread a day or two ahead to eliminate things to do on Thanksgiving Day!

Gluten-Free Cornbread Dressing
1/2 cup butter
1-1/2 cups celery, diced
3/4 cups chopped onion
1/4 cup dried parsley
1 tsp salt
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp poultry seasoning
1/2 tsp pepper
1-1/2 to 2 cups chicken or turkey broth
Melt 2 tbsp butten in skillet and saute onions until soft. Remove onions; melt the rest of the butter.
Crumble the cornbread into a well-greased 9x12 casserole dish (or get your little helper to pulverize it in a bowl, as the picture suggests). Pour in the melted butter and mix well. Add other ingredients (except broth) and mix well. Once everything is mixed and ready, add broth until well-moistened.
Bake @ 400* for approximately 45 minutes. Most of the broth should cook out, leaving it moist but not soggy.
Enjoy a Gluten-Free Thanksgiving!
