Gluten-Free Allergy-Friendly Thanksgiving Menu & Shopping List…
Everything you need from start to finish…
My family does NOT like change when it comes to the holidays. They want the same thing every year. Every. Single. Year.
“It’s tradition!” they say. “You don’t mess with tradition.” they say.
Sigh. I would love to mess with tradition and change things up a bit.
But… then there would likely be a massive revolt at our Thanksgiving table. And I hate family drama more than they hate change.
You should have heard the gasp when I actually had the gall to suggest that we have Prime Rib for Thanksgiving instead of Turkey this year…
“But Prime Rib is for Christmas!“… they whined….
Okay. Fine. They win. We are sticking to tradition….
And here it is…
Our entire Gluten-Free and Allergy-Friendly Thanksgiving Tradition – the Menu, from start to finish, including my plan, timing, a printable grocery list, and everything in between.
Your Thanksgiving – COMPLETELY DONE FOR YOU!
And since my family looks forward to this meal all year long (even the ones without ANY food allergies or food restrictions), you can feel fairly confident that your family should love it too!
Here you go.. From Beginning to End.. Everything you need The Cranberry Citrus-Cider Sauce Recipe – This recipe is so easy to throw together… it literally takes five minutes. And while it is simmering on the stove, your house smells AMAZING. And this is the recipe my kids make all by themselves every year… yup. It is THAT easy. 😉
The Cold Green Bean and Shallot Salad Recipe-This is a great one to make ahead of time so that you don’t even have to worry about it the day of. In fact, this one is best when it gets to sit for a day in the fridge.
The Crock-Pot Mashed Potato Recipe-This recipe is great because you can make it the morning of and then not worry about it again until it is time to serve it up at mealtime…another little trick to a stress-less Thanksgiving meal. Plus, there are 4 secrets included here to give you perfect (aka non-gummy) mashed potatoes EVERY time! There is also a recipe for Allergy-Friendly Cornbread on this post too….
The Best Gluten-Free Stuffing with Apples, Pine Nuts, Sausage, and a Secret Ingredient-This is the one recipe that I never like to be without on Thanksgiving. It has a secret ingredient that no one will ever guess and it makes it taste amazing! My kiddos cannot get enough of this one…
The Cider-Glazed Brined Turkey with Apple-Brandy Gravy -If you have not tried to brine a turkey yet, this is the year that you should give it a go… This recipe is divine but the brining AND the Apple Brandy Gravy will add that extra something-something that will leave you wishing you had made a bigger turkey for extra leftovers. 😉
The Crustless Streusel Pumpkin Pie Recipe – This is one of those recipes that is so easy to make that it will shock and awe you. You literally put all of the ingredients in the blender and pour into your pie dish. Then part-way through baking it you top it with that amazing streusel topping and then let it finish cooking…and you end up with this incredible pumpkin pie with a streusel topping that is far more addicting than should be possible… all totally allergy-friendly.
OKAY…now that you have your menu…you need a plan to pull it off without feeling stressed out and overwhelmed.
Here it is spelled out and organized. From the shopping, to the cooking, to the serving. It is all set for you.
And now that you have your plan…you need your shopping list to hit the ground running. If you make this menu from start to finish, this list has EVERYTHING you need. Just head to the store with it and you are good to go!
I hope your Thanksgiving is filled with family, friends, amazing food, and lots and lots of traditions!
You can be sure mine will be… my family won’t let it be any other way.
