Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Cracker Stuffing Squares

My mom Penny makes the best stuffing in the world. (Thanks, mom, for the decades of delicious stuffing!) One look at the ingredient list and you’ll see that the classics are well represented: There’s celery, onions, carrots, mushrooms…

But her star ingredient is a curious one—crackers. Of course, traditionally, my mom always used matzo meal, but that all changed when Isaiah was diagnosed with gluten intolerance. Instead of matzo meal, I opted for gluten-free, Saltine-style table crackers. The stuffing was practically identical, save for my mom’s love that she pours into this dish.

My favorite part of this stuffing has always been the crispy edges, so I decided to spread the stuffing out thin enough to make it even crispier—a great solution for serving it in a basket as a swap in for bread.

Makes: 12
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 35 minutes


4 ounces gluten-free crackers, such as Schär
5 tablespoons unsalted butter or vegan buttery spread
One 8-ounce package white mushrooms, thinly sliced
1 large onion, finely chopped
Salt and pepper
2 carrots, coarsely shredded (about 1 cup)
2 stalks celery, coarsely shredded (about ½ cup)
¼ teaspoon baking soda
2 large eggs, beaten with ¼ cup water

1. Position a rack in the upper third of the oven and preheat to 400°. Grease a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Using your hands, crush the crackers into coarse crumbs over a bowl.
2. In a large skillet, melt 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring often, until browned, about 5 minutes; add to the crackers.
3. Add 3 tablespoons butter, the onion, 1½ teaspoons salt and ½ teaspoon pepper to the skillet and cook, stirring often, until the onion is softened and golden, about 8 minutes. Add to the mushroom-cracker mixture. Add the carrots, celery and baking soda; mix well. Stir in the eggs.
4. Spoon the mixture into the prepared dish and spread evenly. Melt the remaining 1 tablespoon butter and brush on top of the mixture. Bake until golden and crispy, 30 to 35 minutes. Cut the stuffing into squares and serve hot or at room temperature.

Nodnarb4 Said:

Is it possible to find out the calorie content, amount of fiber and fat grams in each recipe? I am working on weight watchers (the old version) and need this information. I am gluten and dairy free.

silvana Said:

Hi! If you’d like to calculate nutritional content, you can do it for free by using the calculator here: http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-calculator.asp

Hope that helps!

Talk soon,

Karin Said:

We are not a big fan of stuffing, but this looks wonderful. Do you add any spices, poultry seasoning etc? Also, my husband does not like onions, do you think this could be made without onions?

silvana Said:

Hi Karin, I don’t add any other seasonings since it’s based off one of my mom’s classic recipes, but you could totally add in some poultry seasoning, to taste, if you like. As for the onions, yes, leave them out, if you prefer. If you do, I would add a bit more carrots, celery and mushrooms to make up for the volume. Hope you enjoy!
