 My husband's Mom makes the best stuffing.  I never thought I could replicate it so I never tried.  A few years later I decided to give it a shot.  It still isn't as good, but it is a runner up.  I think one thing that makes this stuffing good is to use fresh bread that hasn't been toasted.  Also I use a bread that does not have any rice in it which helps the stuffing from getting gummy.  Feel free to change seasonings and add anything you like in your stuffing.  This is just a very basic recipe.

1 loaf gf bread, cubed (about 8 c.)I have a mix available
1 onion, chopped(about ¾ c.)
4 stalks celery, chopped (about 1 1/2c.)
¼ c. butter(or nondairy Earthbalance)
½ t. pepper
1 ½ t. thyme
1 ½ t. sage
1 t. parsley
1 t. poultry seasoning
1 ½ c. water
1-2 T. chicken bouillon(I love the organic Better than Bouillon from Costco)

Saute onion and celery in butter until veggies are soft.  In a small bowl combine water and spices.  Mix bread with veggies and stir to combine.  Slowly add liquid, gently stirring until bread is coated.   Do not add all at once, but wait a minute for liquid to absorb or bread will turn mushy and crumble.  Save any remaining liquid to add during baking.  Place stuffing in 9x13 pan and bake 45-50 min.  Stir half way through and add more liquid if necessary.
