Polenta Stuffing; A Gluten-Free Thanksgiving Treat!

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!! Mine was nice and relaxing. I ate lots of delicious food and got to spend some quality time with family and friends.

My aunt and cousin are both on gluten-free diets so they are always coming up with great recipes to share with me over the holidays and throughout the year. Obviously most stuffing (if not all) contains gluten, so this year my aunt created polenta stuffing! She actually came up with this on her own, but I found a similar recipe online, which you can view here.

It did contain onion, which I typically do not eat because they contain FODMAPs, but I still ate this and tried to eat around the onion. It was delicious! It honestly tasted like stuffing, but better.

I highly suggest this recipe if you are on a gluten-free or wheat-free diet. I think if I ever make this myself I will omit the onion and add squash or pepper instead.

QUESTION: What was your favorite dish this Thanksgiving? For me, other than the stuffing, I really enjoyed my aunt’s pecan pie. I just love pecan pie!
