Thanksgiving was a disaster for me, though I ate GF.
I have just been diagnosed w/IBS-C and that must have been my problem.
I always brine my turkey. It is super easy to do and always produces a succulent juicy turkey! No need for gravy. At least that is the joke in our family. Last year I brought the super juicy brined turkey and everyone ate it in favor of my mom's dry turkey breast. Aunt Cissy's succulent juicy turkey vs. Grandmas turkey jerky! Needless to say I didn't bring turkey this year.
Whole Foods carries a GF pie crust. I made a pumpkin pie w/GF crust and a sugar substitute (erythritol) and it turned out so good that it got tagged the succulent pumpkin pie!
I made my dressing with the Whole foods brand of Sundried Tomato and Herb bread. It turned out so good that I was told just to make GF Dressing in the future.
No need to make both.
I made gravy as suggested w/Corn Starch and it tasted very good. I did not separate the fat out of the gravy and if I am going to eat any in the future I will have to do so, as fat is an IBS trigger along w/too many carbs, dark meat, etc..etc...etc...everything I like.
There are so many GF options though I see no reason why any holiday meal can't be GF. Thank goodness.
