gluten free stuffing

What is a casserole? A casserole is a one-dish meal, baked in the oven. It has several ingredients that bake all together, in a large casserole dish. It can include meats, veggies, potatoes,
rice, pasta and varieties of cheeses. Casseroles are big time savers. They are also a good way to use up leftovers, sitting in the fridge.

I had some gluten free stuffing mix on hand, so decided to whip some up. Three Bakers Stuffing mix comes already seasoned with everything you need. All I had to do was boil a bit of water, add mix……done! How simple was that?

One night I needed a quick meal, but also did not have a lot of time. I just happened to have all of the ingredients of my favorite meal, turkey, stuffing and cranberry sauce. I served this super easy meal to my family, in no time at all.

I was raised in and around an Italian family. All my life I cooked and everyone around me cooked. It was my life and still is.  In 2013 I had to go gluten-free for health reasons. I was devastated to learn that I can no longer enjoy bread and pasta, that I was so used to eating every day. Can you imagine an Italian girl not eating bread or pasta? During the last few years, I have experimented with all kinds of different products. Searching for a good tasting bread has been a struggle because there was not much available. I was super excited to find Three Bakers Rye Style bread while visiting CT, my home State. I was even more excited to learn it is available locally here in FL. It is absolutely amazing!
