Savory Waffle Stuffing {Gluten Free}

 

Savory Waffle Stuffing {Gluten Free}For this Savory Waffle Stuffing recipe you are really going to have to trust me.  I love my mothers stuffing during the holidays the problem is its chocked full of  bread (aka death by wheat for me).  For the last few years I have tried to recreate her recipe using gluten-free bread (that’s expensive) and the pre-packaged dried Gluten Free Stuffing mix from the local grocery.  Needless to say it just wasn’t the same….  This year I have finally found the solution to making my momma’s delicious savory stuffing.  Waffles!  Yeah that’s right gluten-free waffles!  They toast up like dried bread and they taste amazing!  Plus they have those little pockets that help hold all the yummy veggies and spices.

Ingredients:

6 Tablespoons Butter

2 Packages Gluten Free Waffles, toasted (I find mine at Target of all places in the freezer section)

2 Yellow Onions, diced

6 Stalks Celery, chopped

1 Fresh Baby Bella Mushrooms, sliced (or any small mushroom)

3 Cloves Garlic, minced

2 Sprigs Fresh Rosemary, chopped (or 2 Teaspoons dried)

1 Tablespoon Ground Dried Sage

1/2 Cup Fresh Parsley, chopped

1 Teaspoon Salt

1 Teaspoon Fresh Ground Pepper

1/4-1/2 cup Cream or Milk

 

Pre-heat the oven to 350*.

Using a toaster toast all of the gluten free waffles (I like to pop them in the toaster twice to really dry them out).  Chop the toasted waffled into small squares about 1/4-1/2 inch pieces.

Savory Waffle Stuffing

 

In a large skillet add 5 Tablespoons butter, onion, celery, garlic, dried sage, salt, and pepper sauté over medium-low heat until translucent and soft.  Next add the sliced mushrooms and the remaining tablespoon of butter until soft and starting to caramelize.  Add the rosemary and parsley and remove from heat.

Stuffing Veggies

Add the waffles to the vegetable sauté and stir until evenly combined.  Add the cream a little at a time to bind everything together.  Place in a casserole dish or turkey and cook until heated through.

I like mine a bit crispy, so I tend to leave it in longer.  In a casserole dish I would bake it for about 20 min.  When stuffing a turkey please see your turkey preparation/cooking guidelines front the company (cooking times can vary depending on weight).
