Thanksgiving Tips, Recipes & Resources

Here are some last minute holiday tips and resources in case you don’t have your Thanksgiving all figured out yet.


  • Check your turkey label or call company to confirm gluten free status
  • Substitute Corn Starch or Arrowroot for the flour in your gravy to easily make it gluten free
  • Avoid Gravy Packets
  • Stuffed Turkeys contain gluten even if you don’t eat the stuffing
  • Practice any new Gluten Free Recipes early to be sure you like them!

Inviting Guests Over:

  • Serve buffet style with gluten free items in a separate spot so there is no mistaking where the safe choices are
  • Use the many Gluten Free recipe resources online to make Gluten Free options that everyone will enjoy
  • Have lots of Gluten Free finger foods – veggies, fruit, nuts, cookies, cheese, pretzels, etc, for kids to munch on if they must be gluten free so they are not tempted by other items

Going To Someone Else’s House

  • Ask them in advance for the brand of turkey so you can check the gluten free status yourself
  • You can always make a small turkey breast at home and bring a serving for yourself if needed
  • Bring several Gluten Free dishes that you can enjoy for everyone to share, especially a dessert if you want one, as there are rarely Gluten Free dessert choices.
