  • 1 loaf gluten free bread I used a 16 ounce loaf
  • ¾ cup vegan buttery spread
  • 1 medium sweet onion chopped (about one cup)
  • 4 stalks celery chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh sage chopped
  • cup parsley chopped
  • 1 ½ cups chicken broth or vegetable broth
  • 1 cup cooked bacon
  • 2 Tablespoons vegan buttery spread


Dry out the bread:

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F.

  2. Slice the bread into small cubes. Place on a large cookie sheet, and bake at 200 degrees F for 30-40 minutes, until the bread is dry. Stir once or twice to make sure it dries evenly. Set aside.

  3. Turn the heat on the oven up to 350 degrees F.

Make the stuffing:

  1. Heat the vegan buttery spread in a large skillet. Add the celery and onion, and cook for 6-8 minutes until tender.

  2. Add the gluten free bread cubes, salt, pepper, onion powder, and broth. Stir well.

  3. Add the parsley, fresh sage, and bacon, and stir again.

  4. Transfer the stuffing into a casserole dish. Dot the top of the stuffing with the 2 Tablespoons vegan buttery spread. Cover the dish with foil.

  5. Bake at 350 degrees F for 25 minutes covered, then for an additional 10-15 minutes uncovered.

Recipe Notes

You can also slice your bread into cubes and leave it out overnight instead of drying it in the oven.

Feel free to use regular butter if you aren't dairy free.

Leftover stuffing can be kept in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.

Use any fresh herbs you like - try rosemary, chives, or thyme.
