    What nut would you replace pecans with? I can’t get pecans where I live :(

    Thank you so much for this delicious recipe! I used Port and it added so much. What a great combination of ingredients! I was recently diagnosed with celiac disease and so I was thrilled to find that I could enjoy stuffing without bread!

    Delicious! Thanks so much for sharing! I didn’t have any port on hand so I mixed a tablespoon of coconut sugar into the last of some red wine from an open bottle. Worked just as well! I also added one more sweet potato because it was a little too much sausage for us. Love the pecan crumble too- so warm and full of holiday charm! Recently discovered gluten allergies kind of making my first holiday season a little daunting, but a lot easier thanks to yummy recipes like yours. Great work!

    How would Fresh cranberries work in place of dried? I have lots of fresh and can never find dried without added sugar.

      Hi Hailey,
      I might try for dried apricots or cherries or another dried fruit that does not have sugar. If you are near a Trader Joes, you can find unsweetened dried fruit. Fresh cranberries will add a very tart and slightly astringent quality. I would not use them in the crumble topping.
      Happy Thanksgiving,

    Do you think this recipe would still work without the eggs. I can’t tolerate casein. Or might gelatin eggs work as a sub?

      You could try without the eggs. In this recipe, the eggs do provide some binding and a little structure. If I were going to replace the egg, I would try a flax egg, I think. Good luck and happy Thanksgiving!

    For those who don’t want to use the sherry or port, use the same amount of chicken broth.

    I’m wondering the same as another poster. Is there a substitute we can use for the wine or sherry, non-alcoholic?

    Hi, crazy I came across this post today as I’m doing my 3rd Whole30 and need to modify my thanksgiving menu. This looks amazing… would it be ok to omit the sherry/port part of the recipe?

    Love how this sounds-will be trying it for Thanksgiving! However, I plan to actually put the stuffing in the turkey, which will be in the oven for about 5 hours. Are there any adjustments that you would recommend?

      Hi Katie, I have not tried this stuffing inside of a bird. If I were going to give this a whirl on Thanksgiving, I might do a dry run with a chicken to see how it does.

      If you’re thinking of trying it with the chicken, do a 1/2 or even a 1/3 portion inside of a roasted chicken.

      I hope it turns out great. Please let us know what you think.

    From the pictures, it looks like you’re using ruby yams, rather than sweet potatoes. Would there be an adjustment if sweet potatoes were actually used in this recipe?
