Gluten Free Hush Puppies with Chipotle Honey Dipping Sauce

Do you enjoy cornbread? Do you enjoy donuts? If you answered yes to both of these questions, you'll enjoy these gluten free hush puppies, even more. These babies are delicious served with just about anything. However, try pairing them with seafood or something spicy for a southern flare. They are moist and make a wonderful snack, as well. Though they contain plenty of onion, the onion is sauteed first to sweeten them up. This avoids the use of tons of sugar. Ahhhh...just amazing!

Gluten Free Bananas Foster with Homemade Banana Liqueur

If you wish to impress your guests, flambe a dessert. Bananas Foster may be served flambe-style, though it is not necessary. If you've never had Bananas Foster, now is your chance. It is extremely delicious and easy to make. The caramel sauce is simply made with butter, brown sugar, and a couple of alcohols. Traditionally served over vanilla ice cream, enjoy this gluten free bananas foster over bread pudding, waffles, French toast, in crepes, and my favorite, wait for it...over cheesecake. You can also serve the caramelized bananas alone with just the sauce. To die for! If you do not light the alcohol or cook it off, you'll feel as if you had a cocktail or two! - Just warning you.

Gluten Free Corn Fritters and Dipping Sauce

Southerners rejoice! You can still have your chicken and corn fritters, too. This gluten-free version is easy to make and tastes amazing!

Having these gluten free corn fritters for dinner may create feelings of guilt as these babies taste more like donuts than anything else. However, with the sweet and spicy dipping sauce (only slightly spicy), they do taste savory without garlic. Enjoy!

Gluten Free Shrimp Gumbo with Rice

This spicy gluten free seafood gumbo consists of shrimp and red snapper and is a Cajun favorite, especially during Marti Gras. Gumbo stew is a Louisiana tradition and is famous for its dark roux (flour and butter). My mother was born in Louisiana; therefore, I think of her often when I make southern dishes. Gumbo is known for its dark roux and file spice. Adding in the holy trinity (onion, celery, and green peppers, some heat from ground cayenne pepper and hot sauce, and you have yourself an awesome creole dish. Feel free to substitute the red snapper and shrimp for your favorite seafood, firm fish, chicken, or sausage. If you read anything on this page, you must read how Alton Brown makes a dark roux!

Note: Read labels on shrimp as a few brands are processed on equipment that contain gluten.

Gluten Free Johnny Cakes

Johnny cakes, also known as johnnycakes, jonnycakes, jonny cakes and hoecakes, are similar to pancakes, but they contain some hominy grits, or cornmeal, in this case. Using my recipe for gluten free bisquick or Betty Crocker's store-bought brand, this recipe is easy to make and tastes delicious. It makes light and fluffy pancakes with the grains of corn. Feel free to substitute buttermilk with the recipe for homemade or dairy-free buttermilk by reading the tips section.

Image: Southern Gluten Free Biscuits and Gravy

Every time I hit a milestone on how many Facebook followers I have, I ask my fans what gluten free recipe they would like me to create. Gluten free biscuits and gravy was one of the recipes requested. I asked the gentleman if you wanted white or brown gravy. He desired the white, southern-style gravy. I went one step further, and made a true southern gluten free biscuit and gravy recipe by adding sausage to the gravy. This is optional, or you can even use the vegan substitute I list below. I hope my southern readers, as well as others, appreciate this delicious recipe.
