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.

    • Thanks.  This is very helpful.  Our first post diagnosis grocery store trip took several hours, just trying to read labels to make sure everything is safe.   Our son loves bread and this going to be the hardest part. 
    • i would agree with most of your assessment but overall the popular chefs are very aware. Ed Kenny at Town did have  gluten-free options on the menu.  Mavro's will fix something special given advance notice but its expensive.  excellent but very expensive.  Alan Wong is very aware and will have his staff prepare something as well.  We did find many options at both Oahu  whole foods -- mostly  with tofu. the only thing  there is to be aware of cross contamination with things  next to it.  they make a great gluten-free southwestern tofo dish which is great but not if its sitting next to anything with gluten. Its not whole foods but people use the smae  spoons and tongs i found more at   down to earth in peal city than by  University ave  
    • Hi,  I'm in KOna but my kaiser doctor just retired  who was pretty good about it. I dont know of a specialist here  but most of hte kaiser docs wil test you if thats when you need to talk to them about. good luck  
    • Yes.  And wouldn't it have been nice if your doctor had tested you for Celiac disease before you went gluten free? Then you would know if your issues are Celiac or not.  That would help you know how careful you need to be, what other illnesses and problems to look for, whether you might be passing a genetic disease on to your children, if you should look for another cause of your symptoms, etc  
    • I would be very careful in giving this kind of advice, she is in an advanced stage. I was there and one additional symptom that I was getting was a strong urge to commit suicide so eating gluten for three months might not be the way to go for some people. If a gluten free diet stop the problems them gluten is the problem or a least part of it. I eliminated MSG from my diet because I notice that the common denominator for some products that affected my well being was MSG. I eliminated oats because I notice that I would get canker sores every time I ate it. Wheat is what affect my brain the most, irritability gets uncontrollable, my mental capacity greatly diminish, rash in my arms appear, can't sleep,etc. Barley makes my stomach groan, and constipated. Will try testing how Rye affect me some later time.
