Crispy Open-Faced Gluten Free Egg Roll

You may have had gluten-wrapped egg rolls in restaurants before beginning a gluten-free diet. Not only can you have traditional gluten-free egg rolls, but you can have an even crispier, open-faced version. They thoroughly satisfy the need for crunch. The meat sauce turns people into ginger-lovers.

Gluten Free Egg Rolls and Dipping Sauce

Though the filling may not be easy, the actual making of the outer shell of these gluten free egg rolls is extremely easy. And you can always fill it with left overs, meat and or veggies. I have seen a recipe or 2 online that calls for rolling your own dough. I was just not up for that! Number one, gluten free dough is difficult to work with in many cases, and number two, simply put, it's too much work if you're going to make 2-3 dozen egg rolls. Remembering my batter that I use for my onion rings, I tweaked it and used it for these gluten free egg rolls. The egg yolks and the sugar help the browning and crispness. And after trying a number of batter thicknesses and cooking temperatures, I finally came out with the perfect crispness I desired. I hope you enjoy this gluten free recipe as much as we did. They are addictive, especially if you haven't had any in awhile!

Gluten Free Breakfast Sandwich on a Homemade Potato Roll

My husband often stays at Hyatt hotels. He was recently raving about their Gallery Breakfast Sandwich which consists of a fried egg, bacon, and smoked gouda cheese on a potato roll, filled with gluten, of course. It looked delicious and I have been meaning to create a gluten free potato roll recipe for some time. I finally did! I converted a combination of this recipe from Taste of Home and King Arthur's Easy Potato Rolls Recipe to gluten free. They turned out delicious! I just ordered some gouda cheese so I can make them home and see what all of the fuss is about.

Gluten Free Ravioli Rolls Casserole

This recipe is from my upcoming cookbook, Carla's Best 125 Gluten-Free Recipes. Picture lasagna noodles. Then spread on a luscious ravioli filling. Roll them up, and top with your favorite pasta sauce and mozzarella cheese. Lastly, bake until just lightly crisp on top. You can also use the filling in traditional ravioli. However, this is a much faster way of achieving the same flavors.

Image: Soft Gluten Free Dinner Rolls

I had put off developing a soft gluten free dinner rolls recipe, for too long. So, I made it a priority, and I am so glad that I did! I am not a big bread eater, but I just cannot stop myself with these rolls! They are not grainy at all. They are something my husband loves during the holiday, and I was certainly not going to make him rolls with gluten! When he got home he gobbled up many. Since they're so easy to make, I'll have to make another batch of this super-soft gluten free dinner rolls! Enjoy!

Gluten Free Egg Free Bread

I had a request for an egg free gluten free bread and decided to create this one. Though it is not dairy free, you may be able to experiment with it on your own. In deciding in which direction to take, I ran across a gluten free buttermilk bread recipe which only called for starches, and no need to rise, though it contained yeast. I was very curious how this would turn out. I tweaked it a bit before experimenting and ended up with what I believe to be the most flavorful white gluten free bread yet. I did not allow it to rise, though next time I definitely will, as it is just a bit heavy, but perfect for a French loaf or rolls. I didn't care for the heavyweight in the sliced loaf, though it is definitely kid-friendly. Fresh out of the oven it is to die for! The french loaf crust was a bit crunchy and the crust on the rolls were soft. Enjoy!

Gluten Free Saigon Summer Rolls

While on vacation, we ate at one my favorite gluten free menu restaurants, PF Chang's China Bistro. While this appetizer from their happy hour menu is not gluten free, allow me to explain why it's not. The waitress spoke to the chef on my behalf. He said that the only reason why they don't label it gluten free is because it is made on a grill that would pick of cross-contamination from gluten. Their peanut sauce may also contain gluten, but I didn't ask. The appetizer is called Saigon Summer Rolls, also known as Vietnamese Rolls (Saigon is the former name of the current city, Ho Chi Minh City, in Vietnam.)

Image: Fluffy Gluten Free Cinnamon Rolls

I had posted a gluten free cinnamon rolls recipe a couple of years ago, and have been trying to make a fluffy version ever since. I tried about 4 or 5 different methods, none of which worked well. I had been under the impression from a cookbook that I had read early on that rising gluten free dough twice is senseless. Well, I learned that this statement was not true. A second rise for cinnamon roll dough is the key to making them fluffy or lighter. I plan on experimenting with this recipe by using my Gluten Free All Purposed Flour Blend next. When I do, I'll update this recipe. I hope you enjoy it.

Soft Gluten Free French Roll

This hearty, gluten free rolls recipe is perfect for sandwiches, hot dogs, or long, narrow burgers. If desired, make them into long baguettes and slice them for mini sandwiches or toast them for crostini. Make them with dairy or dairy free and your desired flour and starch. No matter how you make them, this recipe creates a soft, even crust, unlike many other gluten free bread recipes.

Soft Gluten Free Buttermilk Dinner Rolls

I developed a soft gluten free dinner rolls recipe made with rice flour quite awhile back. That recipe can also be made dairy free, if desired. I used rice milk in that recipe. The recipe below, is more substantial as it has more structure. Though light in weight, it is not as light as the dairy-free version. With the use of buttermilk, they are a creamy goodness that my husband and I couldn't stop eating at just one this afternoon. Enjoy!

Gluten Free Pretzel Rolls with Goat Cheese and Scallions

While most people add cream cheese to bagels, it is awesome on these pretzel rolls, too. However, a wonderful substitute for cream cheese is goat cheese. Whether you are making these scrumptious rolls for lunch, meal or just a snack, I'm sure you'll enjoy them. I like them because these gluten free appetizers are casual enough to serve outdoors, yet elegant enough for a meal of several courses.

Gluten Free Pretzel Rolls

After watching the Katie television show yesterday, I just had to create a recipe for gluten free pretzel rolls. They showed kids lunches and stated that pretzel rolls are popular now. I believe any gluten free kid should have whatever his gluten-eating friends consume. I hope your child, as well as you and the rest of your family and friends enjoy this recipe. My husband will be in heaven this weekend! He loves my gluten free soft pretzels recipe which I used and altered slightly for this recipe.

Whole Grain Gluten Free Dinner Rolls

While these rolls are a little hearty, they are extremely flavorful. They’re a healthier choice and satisfying. Three small balls of dough form into a lovely showcase of rolls that easily hold butter, peanut butter, or jam.
