Gluten-Free Thanksgiving Menu

Gluten-Free Thanksgiving Menu

Do you know what I love about food blogging?   In addition to developing recipes, I love trying out recipes by other bloggers.  There are just so many good ideas out there!   Obviously, when I wanted to come up with a gluten-free Thanksgiving menu, I headed to the search bar in Pinterest to find some recipes that will work for us!

Whether you are looking for gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan or nut-free.  You can just type your keywords into the Pinterest search bar and, trust me, you will find what you are looking for.

I had to prepare dinner for around 20 people.  Not everyone who was attending is gluten-free.  But instead of serving just low carb choices, I turned to gluten-free grains.   I also tried to make my menu as hassle-free as possible.  I made anything I could ahead of time, plus I used a lot of crock pots and reached out to relatives to bring dishes.

I cooked sweet potatoes and the mashed potatoes in slow cookers, and used my favorite blender stick to quickly smooth them out.  I also cooked my turkey in a counter top roaster.

I really thought his menu was good. The highlight for me, was that gluten-free cornbread. I love recipes with cornmeal, and I will be trying that cornbread recipe out for myself again soon.

Here are some new kitchen tools that I purchased this year that made my Thanksgiving pre go much smoother.
