Wild rice stuffing flecked with pecans and dried cherries offers another whole-grain medium. Be sure to cook the rice to al dente first before assembling the stuffing to bake—this way, the grain cooks to the right consistency. If you're worried about mushiness, start with a pilaf method: Sauté the grains in a few teaspoons of oil for a minute or two. The oil coating helps prevent overabsorption.

• • Gluten-Free Tip: Use a gluten-free chicken broth, such as Pacific Natural Foods or Kitchen Basics, or water.
