mom's best gluten free holiday turkey recipes

turkey, originally uploaded by mellowfood.
turkey dinner is a tradition for our family for both Thanksgiving and Christmas. when two out of three of my daughters (andrea and robyn) were diagnosed with Celiac Disease in 2005, we had to really look at how we cooked our favorite celebratory dinner! no more heavy wheat flour laden gravy and processed pork sausage, nor any processed dried fruit that I love to add to our dressing. 

it seemed overwhelming the first year! together we researched gluten free products in order to make the gravy and stuffing. robyn discovered
Roads End Organics organic golden gravy mix at Choices Market! we were delighted with the new gravy, it was light, flavorful and more of a light clear gravy. Roads End Organics organic gravy mixes are not only organic, but also gluten free, cholesterol free, and vegan. to thicken the gravy I use either Bob's Red Mill or Club House rice flour.

I found Hertel's gluten free pork sausage at
IGA to use in the dressing. All but one of Hertel's products, the british bangers, are gluten and lactose free. I use rice bread crumbs from Choices Rice Bakery which made our favorite dressing taste exactly the same as before! we also now use fresh herbs and non-processed dried fruits that are gluten free.

our holiday dinner has not suffered at all, in fact we all think it tastes even better with a lighter, healthy, and flavorful taste. non-Celiac guests would never know the difference! in fact we keep the whole dinner gluten free. to avoid any cross contamination I do not even serve wheat bread at our table thereby creating a stress-free dinner for my daughters to enjoy.

Happy Holidays! Sharen.


gravy:
use all of the juices left after the turkey is removed from the pan, leaving a wing and dressing bits in for flavor, add the following and stir over low heat

  • rice flour mixed with water if thicker gravy desired
dressing:
combine everything and add hot cooked sausage meat
  • rice bread cubes

  • cooked Hertel's pork sausage 
shopping:

  • Hertel's pork sausage can be found at IGA, Thrifty Foods, Choices Markets, Quality Foods, and many smaller grocers. If your meat department doesn't carry Hertel's, you can ask that they order it for you, Hertel's delivers twice a week
  • rice bread cubes and gluten free buns can be found at Choices Rice Bakery
  • Bob's Red Mill rice flour is sold at Choices Market, Buy Low Foods, Whole Foods, Save On Foods, Capers, and Safeway

Super! Love the ideas...and I bet it surely does taste light, healthy and every bit as good as gluten laden food we are used to!!!!!!

It sure does, I really appreciate my mom changing her years old recipes for us, and I have to say she perfected it the first year she tried, it's her best meal for sure. And it's really not that hard to substitute a few gluten free items! Are you going to try a gluten free holiday meal? Has your son been diagnosed yet? Enjoy your Holiday season preparations!

We will find out on the 21st. I really should try a GF meal. Gosh, I have learned so much from you both already.
