I have bee gluten-free for at least 2 and a half years now. And I really miss broccoli casserole, and green bean casserole. Of course both those recipes use the Durkee french fried onion rings which are definitely NOT gluten free. Don't you just wish the Durkee company would wise up?!

So I was absolutely delighted when I found a new product on the shelves of my local Giant: "Crisp Onions" made by Seneca Farms. They smell and taste much like Durkee's french fried onions, but just don't have flour on them. Here is the list of ingredients for "Crisp Onions": "Onions, Canola, Sunflower and/or Safflower Oil, Maltodextrin, Sea Salt."

My only question was whether the maltodextrin was free of gluten, so I wrote an email to the company asking. And here was the reply of Jan Stouch at their company:
"I have verified with the supplier of the maltodextrin that it is wheat/gluten free.  Seneca Foods Consumer Affairs"

I also know that Progresso now also makes a gluten-free Creamy Mushshroom Soup. Or I may use Classico's new gluten free "Mushroom Alfredo Sauce." Decisions, decisions! :) It's going to be broccoli casserole tonight, and quick and easy as it used to be! Yum! Can't wait.
