What You Need

  • 1/2 cup diced pancetta
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 4 Dandy® Celery Sticks, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 apple, peeled, cored and chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 3 tbsp chopped fresh sage
  • 2 tsp finely chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 tsp finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1/4 tsp salt and pepper
  • 6 cups cubed day-old gluten-free bread
  • 3/4 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Make It

Made with gluten-free bread, this moist stuffing has all the classic flavors of a traditional stuffing but with an added sprinkle of Parmesan cheese for a crispy topping.

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Heat large skillet over medium heat; cook pancetta for about 5 minutes or until golden brown and lightly crisped. Stir in butter until melted; cook celery, onion, apple, garlic, sage, thyme, rosemary, salt and pepper, stirring frequently, for 8 to 10 minutes or until vegetables soften. Let cool slightly.
  1. Stir celery mixture with bread; toss with broth until moistened. Transfer to buttered 9-inch square baking dish. Sprinkle with Parmesan and parsley.
  2. Cover with foil; bake for 20 minutes. Remove foil; bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until set in center and golden brown on top. Let stand for 5 minutes.


  • Use a tart Granny Smith apple or a baking apple, such as Cortland, Fuji or Crispin.
  • For regular stuffing, substitute egg bread or crusty Italian loaf for gluten-free bread.
  • Substitute maple bacon for pancetta if desired.
