Recipe #1: Our classic family recipe we make every year. Serves 6-8:

  • 3 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1 ¼ tsp rosemary, dried
  • 2 ½ tsp ground sage
  • ½ tsp ground thyme
  • ½ tsp ground marjoram
  • ⅛ tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1½ – 2 cups vegetable stock (to make this a vegan gluten free stuffing recipe) or use a broth of your choice (like turkey giblet)
  • 2 Tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 350F. 
  2. Place Happy Campers Gluten-Free bread cubes in a large mixing bowl. 
  3. Sauté onions, celery, and ½ tsp. salt for 5 minutes on medium heat in Olive Oil. Add fresh parsley last, stir in and remove from heat.
  4. Add seasoning to bread cubes and gently stir onion mixture in to combine well. 
  5. Slowly pour stock or broth over the bread cubes folding everything carefully so that the bread cubes do not break apart too much. 
  6. Taste and add salt, pepper, or more herbs to desired flavor.
  7. These tasty flavors will intensify when cooked, so don’t over-salt or -season! 
  8. Scoop into a medium casserole dish and bake uncovered for 40 minutes or until nice and toasty on top. Start eating, and enjoy!
