GF Crockpot Stufing

I relied on Stove Top stuffing until we had to go GF . I find gluten free stuffing to be better than “regular” stuffing which I believe is from how dry the bread is to begin with.

 

GF Crockpot Stuffing

1 cup butter

2 cups chopped onion

2 cups chopped celery

3 Tbsp dried parsley

2 cups diced mushrooms

12 cups gluten free bread, cubed

1 1/2 tsp dried sage

1 tsp dried thyme

1 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper

1/4 tsp garlic powder

2 eggs

up to 3 cups prepared GF chicken broth (I use Orrington Farms Chicken Base)

 

Melt butter over medium heat in a large skillet. Add onion, celery, mushrooms, parsley and saute for about 3 minutes. In a large bowl mix the bread, spices, and the sauteed veggies. Then, add the eggs.

Transfer the mixture to a greased 5 qt greased crockpot. Pour one cup prepared broth over stuffing. Cook on low for 6 hours. Stir every hour or so, adding broth as needed if it looks dry.

GF Pizza and Homemade Pizza Sauce

We love pizza! We have tried two pizza doughs, Pamela’s and Bob’s Red Mill. We tend to prefer Bob’s Red Mill because it is cheaper and makes more dough. We have found it best to make a fairly thin crust and make two pizzas with one package. It is really challenging to spread out the dough – I find using a cake frosting spatula (pictured below) continually dipped in a tall glass of water keeps it from sticking. We use Hormel Pepperoni and other on hand toppings. I also always cook pizza (and many other things) on my Pampered Chef pizza stone. I LOVE my pizza stone!
