Gluten Free Corn Dogs

I came across Martha Stewart's recipe for Texas Corn Dogs. Knowing it had a much higher ratio of cornmeal than I desired to use, I created a similar recipe and made gluten free corn dogs with a 50% ratio of rice flour and cornmeal along with buttermilk. It turned out be too much cornmeal for my tastes, though it had a wonderful texture. In addition, it was not sweet enough.

One of my Facebook friends asked me if I had a gluten free funnel cake recipe. I didn't, but it intrigued me, as I had never made one, or tasted one before. I headed on over to one of my favorite chef's, Alton Brown, to see how he made them. You can watch his Funnel Cake video. Either click on the photo with the arrow or the Video tab above the recipe. Funnel cakes are usually served at fairs, carnivals and street vendors. If you're missing them now that you're gluten free, try making this recipe at home. I must say, they are very addicting!

Image: Gluten Free Mozzarella Sticks Fried

My husband's favorite junk food snack is onion rings. He's never had fried cheese, though. So I just had to create a gluten free mozzarella sticks recipe. It's crunchy and flavorful. If you want them to have a deeper color, use the chili powder. To make them yellow, add a bit of turmeric. You can spice them up or give them an Italian flare. They make great appetizers or snacks. To provide flavor, add a bit of grated parmesan cheese. If you use the shaker kind, be sure to use a gluten-free brand such as Kraft. They're also awesome dipped in the batter and then rolled in bread crumbs. That provides more texture. I also have a Gluten Free Cheese Sticks Recipe using bread crumbs. This one uses more of an onion ring batter. I hope you enjoy them.

Gluten Free Onion Rings and Sauce

These gluten free onion rings are another great recipe from Gluten Free Chef Rob, Robert Landolphi's Gluten Free Everyday cookbook. I cannot explain well enough how crunchy they turn out, and what a nice thick batter this makes. I only used one onion, but he suggest 2. It made about 2-3 servings, as a side. I think one is perfect for the amount of batter. However, I may have used more batter than I should have. Love deep-fried batter! At first when I made them, the spices in the flour mixture were overwhelming, so I only added half the suggested amounts. But after tasting them they were not spicy at all, however, the dipping sauce was super hot and spicy. So I added the rest of the missing spices, as my husband doesn't care for sour cream dips, and now it's just perfect! I should have known. Rob's so spot-on with his recipes.

Image: Gluten Free Churros

This gluten free churros recipe was adapted from the gluten Churros Recipe on All Recipes. Though their recipe did not call for egg, churros are usually made from a choux, French for a dough made with egg such as cream puff pastries. It is the ideal dough to use, as it creates that well known, creamy, marshmallow-like texture in the center. I have only tasted churros once and did not like them at all. Once I did some research and found out about the marshmallow center and the choux, I knew I'd love them. These babies are better than donuts! Enjoy this Spanish favorite!
