Gluten Free Eggs Benedict

Gluten Free Eggs Benedict on English Muffins

This gluten free eggs benedict recipe is awesome if I don’t say myself!¬†Eggs benedict is traditionally made atop an English muffin, but to make it gluten free I chose to use a bed of breakfast potatoes. This is a great way to go grain-free, as well as gluten-free. UPDATE: Try it atop my new Gluten Free English Muffin Recipe, It’s wonderful, especially straight out of the oven!

Berry Cheesecake Gluten Free Pancakes

Gluten-free Berry Cheesecake Pancakes

In an attempt to use up some cream cheese I had in the refrigerator, I thought about creating a cream cheese gluten free pancakes recipe. At first, I thought of just spreading the cream cheese between the pancakes. Then I thought, what about if I could taste gooey chunks of cream cheese in the middle? – and then top them with strawberries, blueberries or blackberries? That would make a cheesecake pancake! I ended up adding some to the batter creamed, and the rest in chunks. Oh my! – very filling and much like a dessert without all the refined sugar!

You can be very creative with this recipe. Add blueberries to the batter, etc. Continue reading “Berry Cheesecake Gluten Free Pancakes”

Gluten Free Baked Cheese Puff Balls

Gluten Free Cheese Puffs

I never got around to posting a recipe for Super Bowl, but I thought gluten-free cheese puffs would make a nice appetizer or snack for today’s game! This particular gluten-free cheese puffs recipe is not like the crispy snack cheese puffs, but more of a cream puff pastry. They are very light. If you wish them to be heavier, just use all butter instead of shortening and butter. I hope you enjoy them, as well as Super Bowl Sunday! Continue reading “Gluten Free Baked Cheese Puff Balls”

Gluten Free Corn Muffins with Pears and Expandex

One of my family members was recently diagnosed with high blood pressure and requested ¬†a batch of my low-sodium baked goods. Since their favorite fruit is pears I decided on my gluten-free pear corn muffins. Because they are not on a gluten-free diet and not used to heavy gluten-free food, I decided to experiment and¬†add a little bit more tapioca flour (1/3 cup instead of 1/4 cup) and 1/4 cup of Expandex. Expandex also improves shelf life and helps save the texture of gluten-free foods while freezing. Wow! ¬†They really expanded and rose very nicely. In addition, I noticed that muffins made with Expandex had a nice crunchy muffin top, where the prior muffins had a soft top even where brown.

Gluten Free Cinnamon Rolls

Gluten-free Cinnamon Roll

I had a request to create a recipe for gluten free cinnamon rolls ages ago and just now got around to creating it. I really wanted to skip this one, as I still haven’t started my new diet, but how could I resist, right? ¬†Not a sweet thing in the house, so I had to make something! I made them small, basically a half batch of what I would have wanted to make, but I have to do this to test a new recipe out sometimes. The next batch I make will be double and I will try allowing the rolls to rise for about 30 minutes prior to baking. I’ll let you know how this works out by updating this post. They are a little darker in color, as I used homemade pecan milk, but you can use any milk you wish. They are sweet enough not to need a sugary topping, too! These gluten free cinnamon rolls¬†were delicious, but heavier than I desire. I’m working on improving it…about 5 attempts now.

Update: I have created an incredible cinnamon roll recipe since I created the below¬†recipe. Check it out Fluffy Gluten Free Cinnamon Rolls Recipe. It has a cake-like texture. Continue reading “Gluten Free Cinnamon Rolls”

Creamy Mimosa – Naturally Gluten Free

This mimosa recipe is naturally gluten-free. Though I am allergic to oranges, my guests enjoy mimosa for Christmas breakfast. One of my guests mentioned that the best mimosa she ever had was at a resort. I asked it was a creamy mimosa, and sure enough it was. So, I added a a splash of whipping cream to the blend and everyone loved it. What a perfect addition to any mimosa recipe! It created a frothy, creamy head. That particular guest ended up adding a bit of sugar to her glass, though. Later, I found a recipe online that did include sugar. Below is the recipe I made. Want to really wow your guests? Use fresh squeezed orange juice, strained. Continue reading “Creamy Mimosa – Naturally Gluten Free”

Walnut Cranberry Gluten Free Granola Bars

Gluten-free Granola Bar

You may have already seen my other Gluten Free Granola Bars recipe made with chocolate chips. This one we tweaked a bit by adding more walnuts along with the almonds. ¬†ou can use any nuts you like, but using at least one soft nut is helpful for this recipe. For those who cannot tolerate oats, these are perfect. Homemade granola bars are one of our family favorites.¬†I hope you enjoy it, too! Continue reading “Walnut Cranberry Gluten Free Granola Bars”

Savory Gluten Free French Toast

Image: Savory Gluten Free French Toast

It is very popular now to serve savory dishes that are usually sweet. I have been wanting to create a savory french toast for some time now and finally did. I believe the type of bread you use sets a tone for this dish. You must use a gluten-free bread that is soft in texture and has holes in order for the egg mixture to be absorbed. I used Udi’s Gluten-free White Sandwich Bread. As soon as I started soaking the bread in the egg I could smell a sweetness to it which is not what I originally wanted. I find that most soft textured gluten-free breads are higher in sugar than heavier breads. I look forward to making this with Udi’s Gluten-free Whole Grain Bread and see if it is as sweet. However, I do have to say this was a tasty dish!¬† Adding the fresh ripened peaches tied it all together. This would make an ideal and easy brunch! Continue reading “Savory Gluten Free French Toast”
