Stouffer's® eat your heart out! This gluten-free version is adapted from the recipe passed down for generation in my family. One great thing about this recipe is that it can work around almost any schedule during busy holiday cooking. Make the bread crumbs anytime the week before. Broth and bread mixture can sit up to 4 hours and then throw it in the oven with any other dish you are baking. I have tossed it in ovens ranging between 300 degrees F (149 degrees C) to 400 degrees F (204 degrees C). Just adjust the time accordingly.

  • Spread bread cubes onto 2 baking sheets.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until completely dry, about 2 hours. Transfer bread cubes to a large bowl.

  • Melt 1/2 cup butter in a large saucepan over medium heat; saute onions, apples, and celery, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 10 minutes. Add chicken broth and poultry seasoning and simmer until flavors blend, about 5 minutes. Pour mixture over bread cubes and toss to coat; season with salt and pepper. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and set aside for liquid to absorb, about 1 hour.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Remove cover from bowl and transfer bread cube mixture to a 9x13-inch casserole dish. Drizzle 1/2 cup melted butter over bread cube mixture.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 20 minutes.

Cook's Note:

My family is split about whether the stuffing should have raisins in it so I split the bread mixture and put 1/4 cup raisins in half of it after I have mixed the bread and veggies together. Sometimes I add 1 cup grated or chopped carrots to the sauté.

I only used 2 apples and half an onion but added fresh mushrooms and an additional cup of celery. My family loved it! I m definitely making it again. Read More

Well I wouldn't call this "No Hassle" but it is easy. For me it was still a bit crumbly. It is a good basic start. I halved the recipe. After following the recipe I actually stirred in 2 beaten eggs and re-baked and felt the texture was much better which then I would give 4 stars. Read More
