Bread Crumb Substitute?
0

8 posts in this topic

I was just wondering if anyone had any ideas for a bread crumb substitute? In my "normal" baking/cooking I use bread crumbs a lot --- i.e.: black bean burgers, parmesan tilapia, meatballs, etc. Thanks for any input!  :)

I throw a few slices of bread (any kind you like; I use Udi's) in a food processor and grind it to the size crumbs I want. If you want dry bread crumbs, put the sliced bread in a slow oven (about 250) and bake until dried out all the way through and lightly browned. This is how I use up the end pieces from a loaf.

I buy gluten-free bread crumbs.  Check the gluten-free section of your grocery.  I don't know if this would help you. . . an Asian restaurant near me used corn starch which creates a nice crispy texture on their dishes with chicken.  Light and without all the dough, you can taste the chicken!

Gluten free rice chex cereal ground in a blender also works out well. I toast gluten free bread slices and grind them up to use at a later date...sometimes I add some cornmeal to the blend. Gluten free panko type bread crumbs ($$$)by Kinnikinick also work out well, but I discovered the crumbs were not as fine as I would like, so I tossed them into the blender and ground to a finer blend. For a small amount, a coffee grinder can be used.

thank you! has anyone tried ground flaxseed? i would use the bread in the processor but i havent purchased any bread yet (we just went gluten free this week and i cant justify almost $6 for a loaf with the way my husband inhales it!). i will have to check the pre made bread crumbs though. i use them cooking a lot so that would be the best way for me. ive heard the cornstarch for fries too......help them crisp up better  :)

I buy a loaf of gluten free bread and cut most of the bread into cubes and season well and toast in the oven for croutons.  I keep those frozen and use as needed.  The rest of the loaf, I toast lightly and submit them to crumbs :rolleyes: .

-Cereal 

-Rice crackers (I do two regular rice plus one Mary's Gone Crackers Original)

-Tortilla chips

-Potato chips

 

 

These are the standbys here. I take all the crumbs/dregs from the bottom of chip/cracker bags and throw them into a big bag in the freezer. When it's full I run it all through the processor too.

I collect the heels from my udi/Rudi's loaves. Toast and or let sit out a while then grind them up and stick in a bag in the freezer. I just use them as needed.

    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      I saw this the other day too & like Karen, wondered at the last line of the article. The article had me once again thinking about my deceased brother who was dx'd paranoid schizophrenic in his late 20's. He also had alternating constipation/diarrhea  but "they" always blamed it on his meds for the schizophrenia. We, his family, knew he had those issues prior to him being prescribed the meds but there is no telling the medical community something when you're talking about a mental patient.  Okay, I know the guy is selling something but the research noted in the article is valid: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2013/06/22/gluten-grains-cause-schizophrenia.aspx We knew about this back in the 50's & going forward. They even coined the term for it "bread madness". Why have we not recognized this in the psychology/mental health/institutions community for all these many years? Why does it seem to have been just shoved under the rug like some dirty little secret?  Wondering what kind of life my brother could have had - if  he had celiac - constantly haunts me.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      My first thought was how many people that have been labeled as mentally ill or psychotic actually have Celiac Disease and never get diagnosed?  Their whole lives spent battling these conditions, being flooded with various meds and no one looks at their diet or does other testing!  It really is tragic.  I always wondered whether Patty Duke was an un-diagnosed Celiac.  She was finally diagnosed with bi-polar and ended up dying of a perforated intestine, at the young age of 69.  Ya gotta wonder........

      I think the company knows what the ingredients are better than us.  If you mean Amaretto, I have had it.  
    • Gluten free before biopsy???
      My doctor required me to continue eating gluten before the endoscopy for biopsy. She did say I could let up "a little" to ease some of the terrible pain I was having, but wanted me to eat gluten-containing foods every day until the biopsy. As it turned out, they were able to get me in quickly, so it was really only a few days for me. Both bloodwork and biopsy confirmed the diagnosis and now I am happily gluten-free! It has been a challenge, but having a gluten-free kitchen, checking labels on foods and being super-careful when going out has worked wonders. I am not 100% recovered yet, but getting energy back a bit at a time as my nutrition status improves. We don't eat out much - mostly at vegan places that declare they are gluten-free (although I still eat chicken, eggs, milk, and beef sometimes at home). One day, I'll go somewhere else - but not without checking first! Best of luck to you. I think it important to always double-check with the doctor when there are any questions at all. My doctor welcomes questions and I hope yours will too.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      Thanks for posting I was just looking at this a short time ago. Something I found interesting was the last line of the article- " The psychosis that the woman experienced was an extreme condition and very unique, Fasano said. " While not common I am not sure that it is that unique.  There is a fair amount of research that has been done on the effects of gluten on the brains and nervous systems of celiacs.  Doing a search with the words neurological and celiac at places like Lancet, PubMed and the NIH can bring up some really interesting studies. Thankfully this impact is slowly becoming more common knowledge in the medical circles. Many of us have experienced in our families or first hand the way that the antibodies can impact our mood and thinking. It does seem miraculous when the clouds finally lift. I wish more doctors would test for celiac before pulling out the prescription pad, especially with kids.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
