As another year draws to a close and the holidays approach, many are planning a scaled down version of the usual Thanksgiving and Christmas celebrations. Even with the pandemic behind us, I still hear from friends and neighbors that their family gatherings will be smaller this year.

Since beginning my gluten free journey a few years ago, I have enjoyed making a delicious Gluten Free Cornbread Stuffing from scratch each Thanksgiving. This year though, I’ll be taking a shortcut and using these Savory Gluten Free Stuffing cubes from Aleia’s.
If you follow my blog, you know that I use Aleia’s gluten free breadcrumbs in many of my recipes. Since I love their breadcrumbs so much, I thought I would give their savory stuffing a try, and it was a win!
These stuffing cubes are delicious! They remind me of the stuffing mix we all grew up with 😉 The 6 oz. ramekins are perfect for portion control.
- 1 celery stalk
- 1 small carrot
- 1/4 sweet onion
- 1 tbsp. butter
- 1 tbsp. olive oil
- 2 strips gluten free bacon
- 2 cups gluten free stuffing cubes (about a half box)
- 1 cup gluten free chicken broth
- 1 egg, beaten
- cooking spray
Chop the veggies into small dice. Melt the butter and olive oil in a nonstick skillet and add the veggies. Cook 2-3 minutes, stirring frequently.
Next chop the bacon into 1/4″ pieces and add it to the pan. Continue cooking until the bacon is crisp and the veggies are just beginning to brown. Remove from heat and cool slightly. Note: You can make ahead to this point and refrigerate or freeze.
When ready, add the stuffing cubes.
Pour 1 cup chicken broth over the stuffing and stir to moisten. Return to low heat.
Pour the beaten egg over the stuffing, while quickly stirring and turning to incorporate.
Arrange 4 ramekins on a rimmed baking sheet and coat with cooking spray. Spoon the stuffing lightly into the ramekins, about 3/4 cup each. Leave room for the stuffing to expand during baking, don’t overfill or pack it in.
Cover tightly with foil and bake at 325º for 35 minutes.
Serve hot out of the oven and don’t forget the gravy!
Notes ♪♫ Notice I didn’t add salt to the recipe? The stuffing cubes and the bacon have plenty of salt, so I decided not to add more. I also used unsalted chicken broth. If you are not limiting sodium, then by all means salt away!
