Allergy Free and Gluten Free Hamburger Buns…A recipe for your Holiday Cookout.

Happy Pre-4th of July everyone!

 Hope you have lot’s of fun gatherings planned and many hours spent with family and friends. All of you out there with Food Allergies, Celiac Disease or Dietary restrictions feel the pinch when it comes to cookouts and family “food” times. Our friends at Better Batter have a wonderfully easy recipe for the “World’s Easiest Sandwich and Hamburger Buns” and I thought it was perfect timing to share it with you. Here in our allergy free store, we carry other Better Batter mixes, and this Better Batter Gluten Free All Purpose Flour is a popular product.  

Try this and let us know what a hit you are at the Barbecue! Have Fun!

Ingredients:

2 c Better Batter Gluten Free Flour

1 tsp salt

1/3 c sugar (sugar may be added to taste)

4 eggs

1.5 c milk or water

Instructions

It is very important to have a very hot oven for this recipe. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Grease 1 or two cookie sheets or muffin top tins.

In your electric mixer, beat the flour, salt, eggs, sugar and milk or water on high speed for 7-10 minutes. This should produce a batter with the consistency of soft butter-cream icing.

Working quickly, spoon this mixture by 1/2 cup portions onto prepared cookie sheets or muffin top tins. Wet hands and gently smooth and flatten mounds to a width of 3-4 inches and a depth of 1/4 to 1/2 inch.

If you desire a soft edge to the bun (as with commercial buns) use a cookie sheet and place mounds so that they touch slightly when flattened. For a crisper crust on all surfaces of the bun, use a muffin top tin or do not allow buns to touch on cookie sheet.

If desired spray with cooking spray – this will improve the finished appearance and texture of the cooked bun.

Place in hot oven and bake 15-20 minutes or until golden brown and puffed.

Allow to cool completely before slicing.

Where do I find Gluten Free Cookies that Taste Good?

Right here I say! Here is another video product demonstration…I enjoy doing these for some strange reason…maybe I feel like someone is listening to me, or maybe I like talking more than writing! Biscottea has several wonderful cookies that we carry: Chai Tea Shortbread, Blueberry Tea Shortbread, Blueberry Tea Shortbread Grab and Go (their small 2 cookie pkg.), Chai Tea Shortbread Grab and Go, Earl Grey Tea Shortbread and the small package version, Earl Grey Shortbread Grab and Go. These cookies are Gluten Free, Wheat Free, Egg Free, Soy Free, Yeast Free and Kosher. The only one of these gluten free cookies that has egg and yeast is the Biscottea Chai Tea Shortbread Cookie, which is the cookie that I talk about below. I know I sell this stuff, but I have to say, honestly, I really like them. They are “light” tasting and perfect for an after dinner light dessert. And, you don’t have to mix, stir or bake! Take a peek for yourself….

Gluten Free and Allergen Free Crispy Chicken….all in one bird!

I think we all can agree…there is way more things to do in a day than we have hours. Come on, only 24 of those suckers to work with?!!!

Here’s a product we sell in the Allergiesandme.com store that not only tastes great, it saves tons of time too.

I am talking about the Corn Crispy Crumbs from Orgran. Here’s how they describe (couldn’t say it any better myself!): “Orgran Corn Crispy Crumbs is a quality product that will allow you to achieve crispy golden crumbing of meat, fish or vegetables. Corn Crispy Crumbs provides sensational texture with the additional benefit of 25% less absorption of oil than regular bread crumbs. It is also versatile in sausages,added to sausage meats or as a stuffing base to which you may add your own herbs. Also ideal in savoury or sweet recipes such as crumb bases or as a natural thickener in soups and casseroles.”

Well, I made some “fried” chicken (baked if you didn’t understand the quotation inference) and it was really good. The chicken breasts were juicy and not dry, which happens sometimes with other coating products.     Gluten and Allergen Free Chicken

The best part – it’s Allergen Free. Here’s your list: Gluten Free,Wheat Free, Dairy Free, Soy Free, Egg Free, Yeast Free, Peanut Free, Tree Nut Free, Cholesterol Free, Salt Free, Lactose Free,Kosher and Vegan…sheesh.

So, be creative and share your successes. Enjoy!

I’ve got some Ice Cream…I’ve got some Ice Cream!

Remember that Eddie Murphy bit…and that leather suit?!!!! Moving on…..

For all my Gluten Intolerant friends out there, I have found a fantastic ice cream cone you could even take with you to get it filled up at your favorite shop. Goldbaum’s Sugar Cocoa Ice Cream Cones are wonderful! We put our favorite frozen yogurt in them…and I have to say, they are as good or better than any I have tasted. They are Gluten free, Kosher and Vegan. The cones are a little smaller than what you might get in a Baskin-Robbins, but hey, they are better for you and with less ice cream crammed in there, they would have less calories!
