Now, let’s start talking all about this tasty side dish.
Can you make gluten-free Ninja Foodi Stuffing?
This can be made gluten-free; however, you need to use a nice crusty french bread that is gluten-free. These can be tricky to find, but I have had luck at Sprouts and Walmart finding Schar French Bread Loaf.
That will work for this recipe.
Tips for Making Ninja Foodi Stuffing:
This recipe makes about 6 servings, so it is good for a small-scale dinner or simply your family dinner night. If you were going to make more than that, you would need to do multiple batches of this oven-based stuffing recipe.
It’s best to use an 8-inch cake pan to make this or you can also use the Ninja Multi-Purpose pan too. This is going to be made in a process of using the Saute Function, Air Crisp Function, and then some additional crisping.
Initially, the bread is going to start to take the shape of Air Fryer Croutons, but with the liquid, it will not dry out.
Can this be made to fit inside the turkey cavity?
This recipe can be stuffed inside the turkey cavity; however, you will NOT place it back into a cake pan. It would be placed back into the turkey instead, so you would need to alter the instructions just a bit.
How long does Ninja Foodi Stuffing last?
If you end up with leftovers, they can be placed in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
