Delightfully Gluten Free (TM)

Slow-Cooked Sage Dressing

This recipe came from Theresa, a woman in my local support group. I’ve never liked stuffing before, but I really like this. I’m a little embarrassed to say that my mom polished off the leftovers of this the year before, in record-breaking time.

Slow-Cooked Sage Dressing

14 – 15 cups gluten-free bread (Soft White Bread from

3 cups chopped celery

1 ½ cups chopped onion

1 ½ – 2 teaspoons rubbed sage

1 teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon pepper

1 ¼ cups butter or margarine, melted

1 teaspoon rosemary (optional)

Combine bread, celery, onion, sage, salt and paper (and rosemary); mix well. Add butter and toss. Spoon into a 5-qt slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 4 – 5 hours, stirring once. Yield: about 12 servings.

Note: if it seems dry after about 3 hours, add a little chicken broth.

    I have not tried this yet, but I printed it out and I intend to try it very soon. Real “stuffing” would be such a pleasure to eat again.

    Be careful with chicken brooth. Somtimes they have msg in the broth. MSG is not gluten free.
