Stuffing. True story- I used to skip the stuffing at Thanksgiving… I know, I know- weird. Actually, being that I needed to be eating gluten-free (and didn’t know it) and stuffing is loaded with the gluten goblin, it’s probably better that I didn’t load it up on my plate like most. But as I became a big kid and started hosting Thanksgiving, I started including stuffing on my Thanksgiving menu but experimenting with ways that I loved it and could eat it safely.

So naturally for me, that means adding something sweet and using gluten-free stuffing mix. I often add cranberries, which is pretty delish, but this year I wanted to mix it up and swap out the cranberries for the most delicious dried cherries from Graceland Fruit! Sorry to say mister cranberry, but I think these cherries take this stuffing to a whole new level and may take a permanent spot in my stuffing recipe from now on!
