A family of four gathered around the dining table.

Preparing a full Thanksgiving meal for you and your loved ones is never easy—and it can get even trickier when you’re navigating allergens or food intolerances. Guests on a gluten-free diet may have underlying health conditions such as Celiac disease, or they might just be making a dietary switch. Either way, giving your gluten-intolerant friends a seat at the table shouldn’t mean sacrificing flavor.

We’ve done the legwork for you and put together a delicious menu filled with gluten-free recipes that the whole family can enjoy.

Cheese-stuffed dates with prosciutto: These bite-sized appetizers are a great way to class up your Thanksgiving, and they’re perfect for your gluten-free friends and family members to enjoy as well!
Herb-roasted turkey breast: What’s Thanksgiving without a little turkey? For smaller gatherings, try roasting just the turkey breast instead of the whole bird.
Sweet potato casserole: This popular Thanksgiving side dish is a great alternative to some gluten-heavy foods you might otherwise find on the dinner table. Add pecans for an extra crunch!
Mashed potatoes: No need to go crazy on the creativity here. This popular Thanksgiving dish is naturally gluten-free.
Gluten-free gravy: Those abstaining from gluten need creative solutions when it comes to gravy. Luckily, we’ve got the answers for you here.
Gluten-free stuffing: No Thanksgiving is complete without the stuffing (or dressing), and this recipe offers plenty of fun (and delicious) substitutes that will work perfectly for anyone in your family with a gluten intolerance.
Cheesy baked green beans: This side dish is sure to wow your guests, turning a sometimes-forgettable vegetable into the star of the sides on Thanksgiving Day.
Acorn squash soup: Don’t let pumpkin overshadow the other great squash options out there. Check out this delicious recipe for a hearty fall soup you can enjoy on any crisp autumn day.
Pie crust: And of course, we couldn’t forget this classic Thanksgiving dessert. Whether you’re making pumpkin pie, pecan pie, or any other pie you can dream up, this gluten-free crust will make things easy.
Gluten-free pear and almond cake: This delicious dessert will spice up any Thanksgiving holiday. The crunch of the almonds will mix perfectly with the pear for a treat you won’t soon forget.

There are plenty of ways to get creative in the kitchen and make a meal that will be inclusive and mindful of everyone’s dietary restrictions. We hope you enjoy the holidays with your loved ones, and we wish you a very happy Thanksgiving!
