Thanksgiving is just days away, and I’ve got you covered with 16+ easy gluten-free Thanksgiving recipes that are as delicious as they look. All my recipes are made without gluten, a protein found in wheat, rye, or barley. This post contains affiliate links. Please see my disclosures.
If you’re craving some good gluten-free grub, look no further than my list of 16+ easy gluten-free Thanksgiving recipes.
I’ve covered the entire Thanksgiving menu with these delicious recipes, including gluten-free Thanksgiving appetizers, side dishes, desserts, and everything in between. You could say this post includes everything but the roast turkey!
If you have celiac disease, non-celiac gluten sensitivity, gluten intolerance, or wheat allergy, get ready to find joy in Turkey Day again. Most recipes are dairy-free or include dairy-free options, and many options work for vegans, too.
(1) Sweet Potato Casserole
My gluten-free sweet potato casserole is filled with creamy roasted sweet potatoes, infused with maple syrup, and topped with a crunchy pecan and brown sugar crumb streusel.

(2) Gluten-Free Savory Stuffing
I love homemade gluten-free stuffing made with savory sauteed vegetables, fresh sage, and rosemary herbs and covered with chicken broth. Use your favorite toasted gluten-free bread (I recommend Canyon Bakehouse, gluten-free cornbread, or sourdough bread from Bread Srsly), and then top it all with delicious gluten-free gravy.

(3) Gluten-Free Dinner Rolls
Make these doughy pull-apart dinner rolls for your Thanksgiving guests, and they’ll say “thank you” all night long. If possible, bake the rolls right before dinner so they’re at their peak of freshness. As you know, gluten-free bread doesn’t stay fresh for long.

Enjoy this beautiful homemade cranberry sauce infused with fresh cranberries, apple chunks, orange juice, and lemon zest. This easy recipe really zings!
(5) Warm Brie Cheese with Cranberry Compote
This warm brie cheese wheel topped with ginger-spiced cranberry compote makes the perfect gluten-free Thanksgiving appetizer. The melty and creamy brie is perfectly complemented with the spicy cranberry compote.

(6) Festive Cranberry Jalapeno Salsa
Another fantastic Thanksgiving day appetizer is my cranberry jalapeno salsa, made with fresh cranberries, jalapenos, scallions, cilantro, and other fresh ingredients. Grab the gluten-free crackers and prepare to snack in style before the big meal.
(7) Gluten-Free Pie Crust
My three-ingredient gluten-free pie crust is simple to make and nets a buttery and flaky crust. Use it for pumpkin, apple, pecan pie, or even quiche for your next-day Thanksgiving brunch.
(8) Gluten-Free Pumpkin Pie
No Thanksgiving feast is complete without dessert, and my gluten-free pumpkin pie, made with my three-ingredient pie crust, offers a sweet custard filling that satisfies all your pumpkin desires.
(9) Gluten-Free Apple Pie
A classic gluten-free apple pie is on every Thanksgiving dessert menu, and I’ve got you covered with a sweet and tart apple pie that everyone will love.

(10) Gluten-Free Graham Cracker Pie Crust
Use my gluten-free graham cracker crust recipe to make a chocolate mousse or ice cream pie. I’ve tried store-bought graham cracker crusts, which don’t hold a candle to this homemade version.

(11) Gluten-Free Turkey Pot Pie
Use up turkey leftovers with my gluten-free chicken pot pie recipe. I usually use rotisserie chicken for this recipe, but you could easily swap it with leftover turkey to create a second meal that tastes just as good – if not better – than the first. Check out those beautiful chunks of butternut squash inside!
(13) Mashed Potatoes
My ultra-creamy mashed potatoes recipe with crispy potato skins topping is coming soon.
(14) Crispy Brussels Sprouts Hummus Dip
If you love crispy Brussels Sprouts, you’ll love this appetizer. It’s crispy Brussels sprouts served on creamy hummus and topped with pumpkin seeds and pomegranate seeds. While it’s a delicious appetizer, you could ditch the hummus, air-fry the Brussels sprouts, and serve them as a beautiful Thanksgiving side dish.

(15) Gluten-Free Popovers
Instead of gluten-free dinner rolls, try making gluten-free popovers. You’ll need a popover pan to make them, but it’s worth the investment. These delicious popovers are buttery, flaky, and oh-so-doughy too.
Get my 5-Ingredient Gluten-Free Popovers recipe.
(16) Mediterranean Rice
I know Mediterranean Rice doesn’t sound like it would go with Thanksgiving, but if you’re looking for a gluten-free stuffing alternative, rice is nice. This rice recipe reminds me of stuffing because it contains spices and chunky fresh vegetables.
