I really would like to taste how McDonalds new coffee tastes like but to make it worth the trip it would be nice to order something else for breakfast. Since my favorite egg McMuffin is out of the questions does anyone know of a gluten free choice I could have?. Thanks

Gail

Ditto on that! I had that last Saturday and no problems. They even deducted the bisquit and hashbrowns off the price. :)

Well everyone who knows me here knows I sort of hate MD's for many reasons but I have to question...if you eat their fries (I said if you do) and don't have problems can't you eat their hashbrowns too? MD told my Mother today that she can have their fries and their hasbrowns so that's why I read this thread. Thoughts or reasons why MD hashbrowns are or are not safe?

I don't want to reopen the whole debate on the fries. But, there is no issue with the hash browns per se. They are fried in the same oil as the fries. This is NOT the oil that is the subject of the controversy in the USA; this is the fryer oil in the local store. If you consider the fries safe, as I personally do, then the hash browns are also safe. In Canada there never was any question about the fries. The US issue is: wheat and milk are used in the preparation of an extract used in the flavoring of the oil in which the potatoes are partially fried prior to being frozen and shipped to your local outlet, where the frying process is completed in oil which does not contain flavoring additives. This applies only to the US supplier of parfried potatoes to McDonalds. Whether there is any gluten or casein remaining in the final product is controversial.

I eat the Big Breakfast after carefully explaining that I cannot have the biscuit and that the kitchen must not put it in at all, since it will contaminate the meal. I rarely have a problem with this request.

Of course, cross-contamination is always a concern in any restaurant. Each of us must make our own decision about how much risk we will accept, and how often.

But don't eat the eggs at Burger King... they use those cartons of prescrambled "stuff" called eggs. Mc Donalds uses real eggs.

This is a great thread, I will be heading away in a few months, and the only internet access with an easy drive of where I will be (deep in the monutians) is a McDondals in a small town. I figure I will have to drive out there every morning to touch base with work. I might have to risk eating there since I ahve a real addiction to eating when arround food, reguardless if hungery or not LOL

before you eat eggs from anywhere be SUPER careful!!!!!!!!! some breakfast places put pancake batter in the eggs to make them appear fluffier....i know that IHOP does this for sure, ever since then i've asked everyone. that suprise was not a good one.

Nobody on this thread has said to eat the bacon but I thought I'd warn explicitly -- DON'T eat the bacon. The vast majority of bacons are gluten-free, but McD's is not.

FYI,

I went to IHOP on Sunday.

I asked the manager to come over and she worked out a meal for me.

They used fresh eggs in a skillet and made a bacon omelette and a side of hash browns.

Both items were cooked in clean pans and it was wonderful.

Always get a manager over -- they have the power to help!!!!

i've been eating mcdonalds fries but now i am not sure that is a good idea :angry: . it seems as though it is controversial as to whether gluten remains - some dairy remains. anyway, though you all may like to see the link to read up for yourselves.

as far as McD's bacon goes, yeah, it's not safe, BUT you could have a side order of Canadian Bacon!!!

I used to eat McD's for breakfast every day and when I first went gluten-free, I wasn't about to give it up if I didn't have to. After the whole french fry fiasco, I'm boycotting them on principal, but ya know, if I get hungry enough, I may just stop and eat breakfast there.

Okay now you're talkin'....love my 'eggamuffin' and used to have it about once a month, then switched to BoJangles biscuit b'fast when they opened close by. Then I saw Supersize me and that totally turned me OFF of MD's. But when traveling out of town in early morning, I think I may get an eggamuffin (no bread) and hashbrowns. My MD's staff are intelectually challenged so I have to ban them still but the one I visit in TN occasionally is better.

Well, I keep saying one of these days I should reintroduce cheese and see what happens (it's been 7 months!!). Maybe I'll make my own on a Knickiknick english muffin? It would be close.... er, closer anyway... Funny, there's not much I miss - but this sure is one of them!

i have been loving bacon, egg, and cheese biscuits lately using grandma feronda's hamburger buns...they taste biscuit like...yum! just slap some scrambled egg, some bacon strips, and a slice of cheese and then microwave to melt it all together...it tastes a lot like mcd's biscuits to me :D my hubby even wants to try the buns cuz they smell so good to him (he's not gluten-free)

I've been making my own version of McGriddles, I've been putting a scrambled egg, topped with American Cheese in between two pancakes made with 123 gluten-free Pancake Mix... I make the whole bag up of the mix and then freeze the pancakes in packs of two in sandwich baggies then in a freezer bag. Just pull out the sandwich baggie of two frozen pancakes, nuke em for a minute and then top with the egg and cheese! Very portable! Would be awesome if I had some Canadian Bacon!

Now, find me a suitable substitute for a Burger King Croissanwich and I'll be a very happy girl!

Thanks for all the wonderful replies. I plan on going there this saturday morning. I checked the ingredient lists for McDonalds because I get pretty sick with MSG too. The sausage patties have them in. :angry:

I'm going to see if they'll make me the egg McMuffin without the muffin or get the big breakfast and substitute the canadian bacon for sausage. The hash brown looks good to me. I see in the yogurt parfaits the have konjac flour in it...what is that!!??

Another thing I noticed was the grilled chicken has wheat in it, so not safe for your salads. And yes the bacon has wheat and soy in it.

If the premium coffee is good it beats going to Starbucks so I'm hoping it will be.

Gail :D

It's your choice, but at some point when you can be miserable at home with no obligations if necessary, you should try cheese again. Many people -- though not all of course -- can tolerate it once they've been gluten-free.

i'm one of those people who can now tolerate dairy...i was dairy free for over 8 years, and cheese was the worst for me...we figured that i was dairy intolerant...well once i found out that it was gluten, i went gluten free then slowly added dairy back in...now i eat a lot of it...although i found that i like vanilla soy milk better than plain cow's milk :P

    • Sjogren's, Celiac, or both?
      Doing great! Been gluten-free for two years, now. No symptoms, antibodies are almost nil and certainly where they should be. Been glutened really bad twice (ate 4 slices of bread I thought was gluten-free once, and ate pasta I thought was gluten-free once) was in bed for three days each time and felt like crap for a couple of weeks. Learning experiences, not done that in quite a while. 
    • Can treatment for Giardia reverse active Celiac
      I'm not a doctor or expert but I've done a lot of reading and I believe anything that causes major inflammation for the small intestine can cause false positives for celiac antibodies. Sometimes people with Crohn's will have positive celiac tests as well.  I wouldn't be surprised in the least that someone with a bad case of Giardia would come up positive.  Now, eventually, as you fully recover from the giardia infection you should go back to normal levels but if you don't you most likely have Celiac as well.  From what I understand, Celiac doesn't go into remission though it can be latent in people for years. 
    • Sjogren's, Celiac, or both?
      Hey, happy to see your posting, Fenrir.  I hope you are doing well!  
    • Sjogren's, Celiac, or both?
      Well, you do not HAVE to get tested, but since Celiac Disease is genetic and you have kiddos, you should seriously consider the pros and cons. Take for instance, my hubby.  He went gluten-free over 15 years ago per the very poor advice of his GP and my allergist.  "Try giving up wheat and see how you feel."  Well, it worked.  No more sinus infections, feeling achy like he had the flu, etc.  He seriously struggled the first year without a proper diagnosis, but eventually good health became more important than rye bread.  Twelve years later, I was anemic (well I have been all my life)  and went for a routine colonsocopy because all my friends were getting them (the perks of the over 50 club).  During my GI consult he recommended getting scoped at both ends because he suspected celiac disease.  I could not believe it!  But blood tests and my biopsies proved that I had celiac disease.   Hubby will be the first to say that I have had more medical, family and friend support with a formal diagnosis.  He refuses to do a gluten challenge.  His mom was diagnosed with MS and literally died from malnutrition, so we suspect she had celiac disease.  He definitely has a problem with gluten.   Thankfully, my dx has allowed for my daughter to be tested every few years (even without symptoms).  She does not have celiac disease or any other autoimmune disorder yet.  I say yet, because the gene pool for AI issues is huge on both sides.  Good news is that cancer is rare but you never know.   So, this is a decision you will have to make.  An endoscopy requires a much shorter challenge.  Something to consider.  Gene testing too will help rule out celiac disease and might be the first thing to consider as you do not have to be on gluten for that.   I wish you well! 
    • Sjogren's, Celiac, or both?
      Everything you listed above very well could be Celiac Disease and not Sjogren's, but people with one autoimmune disease are at a higher risk of getting another one.  Your GP clearly is working with old knowledge in regard to Celiac Disease. There are probably more people who suffer from constipation from Celiac than loose stools. I know for me I never had diarrhea at all, but I was backed up something fierce.  I also had swollen joints, headaches, abdominal pain, memory issues, high liver enzymes, fatigue and general cloudy head.  Not many of these are symptoms an uninformed Doctor would think to associate with Celiac.  You really have to show up prepared to be your own advocate, tell the doctor that according to many of the GI specialists who work with Celiacs (see University of Chicago's celiac disease Center) these are all symptoms that warrant a proper workup for celiac disease.  It took me 6 months, two biopsies and an unneeded surgery to get diagnosed and that isn't as bad as some.

      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.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
