When putting together my Thanksgiving menu, there are a few things that are a total must. I like to call them the “non-negotiable.” Turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, sweet potatoes with toasted marshmallows, green beans, homemade cranberry sauce and stuffing. If those things are not on the table, it just doesn’t feel right. Oh, and you can’t forget about the classic pumpkin pie.

Their bread is BY FAR the best gluten free bread out there so it’s pretty sweet that their products are available at most grocery stores nationwide. If I had to choose my favorite bread of theirs, it would be the Mountain White. It’s so soft and reminds me of a classic white bread.

To show off the Canyon Bakehouse gluten free bread in this stuffing, I simply sliced a whole loaf of bread and toasted the bread cubes. Once toasted, they are ready to be tossed with the celery, onion, herb, apple and cranberry mixture. Topped with chicken broth and a little dairy free butter, this stuffing is ready to be baked to golden brown perfection!
