Allergy-Friendly Apple Herb Stuffing

Love stuffing but need a gluten-free option? How about a dairy- and egg-free option too? We’ve got you covered. 

When you pack lunches daily, you can accumulate a lot of bread crusts and scraps from sandwiches. I save mine in a storage bag in the freezer so I can make homemade gluten-free croutons, bread crumbs, and stuffing. Here is another great way to repurpose those bread pieces and make something that’s both allergy-friendly and delicious!

I made this recipe with no added eggs or dairy, but I have listed either way so you can make it to fit the needs of your family. By using a type of bread that accomodates your allergies, you can keep it completely egg-free or dairy-free. The bread my family uses is gluten-, dairy-, soy-, and nut-free. Serve it up for the holidays with a giant turkey or for family dinners with marinated pork. The apples give it a sweet bite that will mix deliciously with your meal.
