Whether it is your first Thanksgiving since being diagnosed with celiac disease or switching to a gluten-free diet or you are a seasoned gluten-free cook, there is always room for suggestion, especially around a holiday menu. I love that these recipes are ones the authors (including my own family) have been making for years.
I find that having a few special dishes that you have always loved on Thanksgiving, made gluten-free, really make the holiday meal special. For me, that is always our gluten-free green bean casserole with homemade fried onions and pillowy soft gluten-free crescent rolls.
I also recommend some gluten-free pies that let you enjoy the traditional Thanksgiving dessert with everyone else. However, we have some other great ideas for sweets that are gluten-free and a bit out of the box. I bet you will love them!

I always grew up with the most gorgeous Thanksgiving Day spread. My mom is the most amazing hostess and cook. Her dishes are more tasty than many I have ever had at restaurants so from her, I am learning what to do to take reins into my own hands one day.
My mom always did appetizers instead of breakfast which is a tradition I love and want to continue in my own home. So I’ve included that menu as well. So I’ve also included our traditional menu we’ve been doing since I was a little girl.
