The Stuffing or Dressing recipe I use calls for 2 pans of corn bread, which equals about 12 cups of crumbled corn bread. I try to make my corn bread early, measure it out and put it into bags and freeze it. That way when it’s time to make my dressing for Thanksgiving, all I have to do is add it to the recipe.
Below is the recipe I use for the flour mix, and my Gluten Free Corn Bread. I hope this helps you getting prepared for your Gluten Free Thanksgiving.
Gluten Free Corn Meal Mix
1–24 oz. bag of Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Stone Ground Whole Grain Corn Meal
2- 24 oz. bag of Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Corn Flour
Mix well with whisk, in a large mixing bowl, and pour in air tight container. Be sure and label container.
The reason I like to use the mix of corn flour and cornmeal, is because the GF corn meal is coarser than regular cornmeal. So when you add the corn flour it just evens it out. If you like the grit of the corn, then just use the cornmeal. ( I have a thing about texture. I don’t even like regular pears because of the grit!)
If you like the finer grind of the Corn Flour, just use the Corn Flour alone instead of adding the Whole Grain Corn Meal.
GLuten Free Corn Bread

2 Teaspoon GF Baking Powder

In large mixing bowl whisk together dry ingredients, then add butter, water and eggs. Mix well and pour into a greased, 9 – 10 inch skillet, or baking dish. Bake at 350* for 25 – 30 minutes, or until set and browned around the edges. Cool and serve, or freeze in freezer bags for Turkey and dressing.
