Gluten Free Frittata with Spinach Potato and Cheese

Image: Spinach Potato Frittata

If you’re serving Easter brunch, this gluten free frittata would make an excellent addition to your menu. You may multiple the ingredients and make it in a large dish to feed a crowd. Some become confused with similar recipes such as a quiche or omelette. An omelette is folded, a quiche contains a crust, and a frittata is usually mixed up with the added ingredients. You may add meat, vegetables, cheese, pasta, potatoes and more to any of the above. They are delicious. I find a quiche to be more appealing, aesthetically, though you can create a very aesthetic frittata, as well. I provide the technique below. Enjoy!

Duchess Potatoes (Naturally Gluten Free)

Duchess potatoes, also known as duchesse potatoes, are a¬†French dish, pommes de terre duchesse, consisting of seasoned mashed potatoes, made stiffer than traditional mashed potatoes, with the addition of egg, in this case, egg yolks. They are piped using a piping bag or device, and browned just enough to accent the design. Most recipes call for heavy whipping cream, however, my recipe below is a lower-fat version, and may be made dairy-free. Now you’re the duchess.

Gluten Free Scalloped Potatoes Microwaved

With the holidays approaching, I thought I would make a few easier, or at least faster, recipes for that busy time of year. No one enjoys scalloped potatoes more than we do (me and the hubby), but we don’t eat them often, not only because they’re loaded with calories and fat, but because they just take so long to bake. I was having a craving for them recently, and with not much time left to make them, I had to experiment on whether or not microwaving them would work. Sure enough, it did! They turned out perfectly! So, when you’re having a craving for scalloped potatoes, consider this recipe. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it as much as we did. Continue reading “Gluten Free Scalloped Potatoes Microwaved”

You may have already tried my father’s neighbor’s Gluten Free Gnocchi Recipe, but this was tastes so much lighter, and less starchy. It’s made with gluten-free flour and riced potatoes. Oh my, my husband and I were in heaven! I laid it on a stripe of store-bought cream basil sauce and topped it off with a bacon and basil ragu. I would have thought were in a 5-star restaurant if I don’t say so myself. And the nice thing about the ragu is that you can use your favorite gluten free cold cut, pastrami, salami, etc. You don’t have to use bacon.

Avocado Mashed Potatoes

Gluten Free Avocado Mashed Potatoes

I know, it may sound like an odd combo, but avocado is actually a great egg or fat substitute. Though these mashed potatoes do taste a bit like avocado, with a little added cheese, (I used parmesan) they are simply amazing. I actually even enjoyed them cold. Cold, they taste more like avocado. Warmed they taste more like¬†mashed potatoes. It’s all very interesting. It’s a must try if you like avocados. You’ll never know if you like avocado mashed potatoes unless you try them. It’s an adventure, just like my Raw Almond Pistachio (Avocado) Ice Cream Recipe, which I love! Continue reading “Avocado Mashed Potatoes”

Gluten Free Potato Dumplings and Chicken

Gluten Free Chicken and Dumplings

Contemplating my next blog post recipe, I first asked myself, what would my husband enjoy that I have never made. Gluten free dumplings was my answer! Something starchy, with gravy would hit the spot on this cold, snowy winter’s day. However, I just could not imagine making a gluten free dumpling out of gluten free flour. It would just be a ball of starch. Therefore, I went with mashed potatoes. They make gluten free dumplings you’d be proud to serve your gluten eating guests.

These gluten free mashed potatoes are to die for! A family member made these a few months ago and I was afraid to eat them, as I had no idea if the bacon was gluten free, but I found out that they included sour cream and cream cheese, as well. All of the guests were raving about them, and I just had to make them, gluten free. She had added some cheddar cheese to the top. I’ve added made these with cheese on top, inside, and without cheese. You just need to make sure all of your ingredients are gluten free, including the bacon, cream cheese and sour cream. You may mix in bacon or your favorite cheese. I like cheddar. I added crumbled bacon to to pof my gluten free mashed potatoes. I bet the left overs make wonderful potato pancakes! Just fry them cold with some butter. Yum! Can’t wait to try it!
