Allergy-free Thanksgiving Recipes

Holidays always pose challenges to families with food allergies, especially when you are joining a large group of family and friends for your holiday meal.  Our allergist provided us with stickers that kids can wear to remind relatives that your child has food allergies if you know there may be someone there who is not aware and your child is not yet old enough to say "no" when someone tempts them with a treat that could result in an allergic reaction and possibly a trip to the ER.  This is a great idea - check with your pediatrician or allergist if you think this would be helpful (or make your own)!

To assure that you have some delicious allergy-free options on your Thanksgiving table, I have sifted through many recipes to come up with this meal.  I would love to hear about some of your favorite recipes - email me or, better yet, post your recipe links as comments below this post!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Crock Pot Turkey
Turkey breasts - so much easier than turkey and keeps your oven free for all of the wonderful sides!

Allergy-free Sausage Stuffing
This recipe is excellent, as it gives a variety of options depending on what your allergies are!

Cranberry Pumpkin "Ketchup"
My new favorite holiday recipe and an amazing substitute for cranberry sauce!

Green Bean Casserole
No canned soup here! It says it is dairy and soy free, but the recipe calls for butter. Try ghee if you are dairy-free. Instead of fried onions, sub in 1/4 cup GF or panko bread crumbs that are mixed with 1 tbsp. of olive oil and sprinkle that on top and bake as directed (5-10 minutes at the end with breadcrumbs on top).

Honey Roasted Sweet Potatoes
As simple as it gets and no marshmallows! :)

Pear Pumpkin Crisp
See the November 3rd post!

Pumpkin Rice Krispie Balls (allergy-free)
We will be having these on Thanksgiving Day!  So cute and delicious!
