Best of Gluten Free Foodies Gluten Free Thanksgiving Recipes

I thought I would make it easier on everyone this year and do a post of the 

Best of Gluten Free Foodies Gluten Free Thanksgiving!

Wow! What a "mouth-full" of a title! 
I guess it is appropriate for the holiday!

So why not start with dessert first ... right?!



Can I just tell you I started thinking about this pie a few weeks ago?!
Oh my goodness ... I can't wait!

Homemade flaky Gluten Free pie crust and creamy, 
spiced Organic Pumpkin spiked with Dark Rum! 
Make sure you save some for the midnight munchies!

I think one of the most important things that you can do for yourself
or for your guests is to ask them if they have food allergies or intolerances.  

I am a big believer of everyone coming to the table 
and enjoying a delicious and safe meal.  

Great tips on how to celebrate a safe Gluten Free event at home! 
Share this with your friends and family
so they understand how easy it is for everyone to enjoy
the holiday and avoid cross-contamination of gluten or other food allergies. 

This is a must in my house and when I go to a potluck! 

Write out a sign that says ...
Gluten Free
The name of the dish including ingredients and spices! 

It is always nice to include information such as Vegan and Sugar Free as well.

Use cut card stock and a felt tip pen if you want to hand write it.
Printing from your computer is nice too if you forgot how to handwrite!

Now on to the food!

GF Fried Green Onions
Do you miss the real Green Bean Casserole with the fried onions?  
No worries my GF Foodie friend!
Just add green beans, Pacific Foods cream of mushroom soup -
 mix together and top with
GF Fried Green Onions -
heat in the oven for 10-15 minutes. 



Gluten Free Dinner Rolls and Bread
I love these for dinner but I love love love them to make
The Ultimate Gluten Free Turkey Sandwich UGFTS
They are the perfect soft flavorful texture.
I like to make them small
to serve "Mini-Slider-UGFTS".



Mini Gluten Free Pies
This is the easiest way to make Pumpkin Pie!
Using a GF Graham Cracker Crust and baked in individual ramekins
guarantees that everyone gets an even slice of Pumpkin Pie heaven!
Hey you uneven slicers ... I've got my eyes on YOU!
You know who you are!


Herbed Kañiwa Dressing - GF and Vegan
Great way to make a lighter Dressing for Thanksgiving.
I actually make a variation of this side dish all year.
It stores well and is even better when you make it a day ahead because it has time to meld!
This can also be made with Quinoa in place of the cousin - Kañiwa!
Kañiwa, from Peru, is smaller and even easier to digest.

Ok, I know if you are a traditionalist then check out my recipe -
Gluten Free Dressing with Fennel and Rosemary Sausage
Everyone begs for this one every year! It really is a meal all by itself!



Add natural decorations around the house. 
Pumpkins are always great because it is an incentive to make more GF Pumpkin Pie! 


Well hopefully this post has inspired you, 
made the holiday a little easier 
and  
made you very hungry for your
Thanksgiving meal! 

If there is something special for your GF holiday meal 
that you are looking for, please email me.  
I will do my best to assist you.


I want to take this time to say 
THANK YOU
for reading, cooking and baking along with me over the years.

It is my ultimate joy that I pour into my blog. You keep me happily motivated and distracted.
I love every email that I get from you and ask you to please keep them coming. 

I wish you have a safe, delicious Gluten Free Thanksgiving with your friends and family! 
xoxo




Learning to live Gluten Free is a challenge. Gathering with like minded people while exchanging ideas, life experiences and gluten free food is more interesting! So I created, Gluten Free Foodies, to support people with Celiac Disease, Gluten Intolerant and other Food Sensitive people by gathering at events and celebrating the foods that we can eat! Do you have a Gluten Free question you want the answer to? Feel free to send me an email at glutenfreefoodies@gmail.com Original blog - GlutenFreeFoodies.co After all, didn't Erma Bombeck once say ... "I am not a glutton, I am an explorer of food."
