Favorite gluten-free Egg Dishes?

Our chickens have gone into overdrive! We have 6 chickens and they are all laying every day recently. 6 eggs a day is a lot to keep up with. Im running out of ideas on how to use them. Hard boiled? Done it. Baking bread, cakes and cookies? Oh, yes, lots of times. As a hair conditioner? Done that too.

Do you have any TNT dishes you could share that use eggs? Maybe even lots of eggs? I am giving some away, using some and selling some, but I'd love new recipe ideas.

TIA!

I make this breakfast casserole every weekend, i use a lot of eggs because i use a lot of whites:

makes 8 servings with 250calories each:

1 pkg shredded hashbrowns obrien

2 gluten-free chicken sausages (I use the Aidelle's from Costco-any flavor)-remove casings and chop small

7 large eggs

10 large egg whites

1 large tomato thinly sliced

1 cup 2%milk shredded cheddar cheese

Mrs. Dash or other seasonings

Spray 9x13 dish with cooking spray

spread hashbrowns on bottom

distribute sausages evenly over hashbrowns

place tomato slices over sausages

beat eggs and whites together and pour over casserole evenly

sprinkle cheese over

add seasonings

bake 375 for ~60 minutes. Check after 40 to make sure cheese isn't getting too brown, cover with foil if needed. When eggs are set in the middle, it's done!

You can assemble the night before and bake in morning.

Meringue Pies!!

(I don't have recipe because I've never been successful at meringue - too much grease in my kitchen?). But they use LOTS of egg whites.

LARGE omelettes for king size men for Sunday breakfast.

Large quantity of french vanilla homemade icecream.

That's all I can think of.

I ended up with about 20 cartons of eggs in my fridge last summer (long story), so I kind of know where you're coming from. :rolleyes:

If you can find some coconut flour, there's a chocolate cake recipe that uses 9 eggs. I think you can find it on Mercola's website. I've made it and it's good (I think I used real sugar instead of stevia, and turned it into chocolate muffins with raspberry jam centers). You could make a few cakes, some muffins, cupcakes etc. using different variations of that same recipe.

You can also make frittatas in muffin tins (mix eggs with your favorite fillings, pour into muffin tins, bake then freeze. Microwave when you want them later).

Eggs mixed with a little hemp milk (or milk of choice) and added to sauteed peppers and onions is quite tasty as a frittata and it uses many eggs if you're feeding a family for dinner. That one's kind of obvious though.

I have chickens too, and they're doing the same! It's because we have more daylight now.

I love Tortilla Espanola, and its Italian counterpart Frittata (sp?). I don't have an exact recipe, it's kinda something you make up and you go along. But it's like a giant baked omelette that you cut and serve in wedges, like a pie. Sautee a bunch of vegetables of choice (I love spinach, mushroom, sun dried tomato, bell pepper...be creative). Scramble a bunch of eggs (2-3 per person). Mix eggs and vegetables in a baking dish. You can also add cheese if you do dairy. Bake until done (until brownish on top, will take about 1/2 an hour I think, at around 350).

If you've ventured into gluten-free pie crust, I'd make quiche. gluten-free Pie crust is great. It never gets soggy.

Also, angel food cake uses about a dozen eggs and is low in sugar. I know there are gluten-free recipes out there for it. But I haven't tried them.

Colleen,

I was going to suggest what has been mentioned here, quiche, frittatas, bread pudding (some recipes call for 8-12 eggs), custards.

I found this link (not gluten-free, would have to be modified), she had the same problem as you and was given many suggestions, might give you some ideas:

I can vouch for this quiche, someone made it for me and it is very good (you'll need to supply the gluten-free crust :P ):

I've made these fritatas many times, substituted with bacon, different cheeses like smoked gouda, veggies like roasted bell peppers, etc, very versatile:

I would say bread pudding, the not-so-great gluten-free breads typically work very well when turned into stuffing or bread pudding or french toast. And any baking with coconut flour is good because it calls for so very many eggs, so that way you get more protein in your baked goods and that's healthier.

I am so jealous!!! What kind of chickens do you have? I used to have 4 Araucanas and 3 Partiridge Rocks...( I lived out in the country in Nevada for 3 1/2 years)

I miss the eggs. I love them hard boiled. So did all the neighbors! lol

good luck I ended up taking a lot of them to the local foodbank! B)

enjoy!

You could make a quiche. I use 4 eggs to 1 1/2 cups of cream then vary the cheeses and other ingredients (my last one was proscuitto and cotswold cheese). I usually make a potato crust for my quiche (2 large peeled and grated potatoes, salt them for about 10 minutes then wring out in a clean tea towel, add 1 Tbsp of oil and one beaten egg then press into a quiche pan/pie pan. Bake the crust for 45 - 50 minutes remove and add egg mixture with add ins and bake until done). It makes a nice meal and uses 5 eggs in the process.

Edited to add: Make french toast. I use Kinnickinick Tapioca English Muffins they make excellent french toast.

Zowie - thatsa lotta eggs! I'll stop whining since we are about 3 dozen ahead, then. :lol:

Yeah, you're right. I was so bummed when we didn't get a single egg November - January (days too short). But they are definitely making up for lost time now.

We have 2 Dominiques, 2 Australorps, 1 Easter Egger and 1 Golden Laced Wyandotte. We have had them since they were 3 days old. It's hard to imagine what were once a tiny peeping balls of fluff have turned into gynormous egg laying machines! Here is a pic of the girls, and here is a pic of the daily haul. :)

Thanks for all the great recipes! I can't wait to try them.

    • I'm actually scared to go to the doctor and could use some advice
      Hi Elle......do you think you would have better luck obtaining a full Celiac panel from your GP or a gastro doc?  You really need to be tested for Celiac because of all your symptoms.  Many other people probably thought they were dying of some horrible disease because they had so many symptoms that docs ignored.  Very common problem for us.  Plus, your Mom has had "IBS" all her life.  I should add that IBS is not a diagnosis.  No one needs to be told their bowel is irritated......they already know that.  This is where the medical establishment, no matter where you live in this world, fail us.  They need to find the root cause and there always is one.  You also do not need to have any gastro issues to be a Celiac but you do have some, along with all your symptoms mentioned.  Anxiety is a huge problem with Celiac Disease and for many, it goes away just fine on the gluten-free diet, without need of meds...which should always be a last resort measure.  I have never had an anxiety problem in my entire life until after I was diagnosed with Celiac.  I may have had it but with all the other numerous symptoms I had, the anxiety may have gotten buried somewhere.  But guess what? On the extremely rare occasion when I am glutened or cc'd, I get major anxiety for about 4 days and then its gone. B12 is a water soluble vitamin so whatever you don't use, it exits the body in your urine.  It is pretty damn hard to overdose on the stuff.  I take a B vitamin everyday, very high quality ones and my B12 is usually in the high 600 range.  Optimally, it should be between 650-800 so yours was abysmal pre-supplementation.  Absorption can also be affected by PPI's.  You did notice improvement with the tingling sensation and fatigue once your levels were way up so take notice of that. My biggest advice is to get your mother and you tested for celiac, with a FULL PANEL. Then you'll have to wait and see what that shows. You could always trial a gluten-free diet if all testing is complete and the results were either negative or inconclusive. That sometimes happens with people, especially if they have Celiac's other cousin......non-celiac gluten intolerance.  This would be the best route to go with regards to your anxiety, unless it becomes disabling and you need meds, short term. Make sure you tell them that anxiety is a HUGE symptom of Celiac and it is not normal for younger people to have extreme anxiety like that, for no reason. Good luck to you and please call and make the appointment. I understand your fear....I hate doctors and it's pure mistrust. But sometimes you have to address a problem head on.    
    • newbie diagnosed mom - testing 8 yr old now
      good to know. I am not going for a biopsy. I do not have health insurance, i know i know please no political comments. My children do. My husband and I don't right now. If we lived in another state, we would have coverage. I just made an appt to do a full blood panel for my daughter this week. I would rather find some confirmation for her through a blood test, i feel a scope is too invasive for a child.

    • I'm actually scared to go to the doctor and could use some advice
      Well, if I were you, I would go see your doctor and talk to him/her about all this.  Tell your doctor about your anxiety. When I finally did, my doctor prescribed a low dose of an anti-anxiety med and it has made a world of difference in my life.   About the whole thing with the B12 and the weird symptoms . Keep taking the B12 in the meantime to see if that helps again. But talk about it anyway.  If you want a celiac test, ask for the panel to be done. Your doctor may or may not want to send you to a GI for that. Remind him your mom is being tested. You do not have to wait for her results.  Work with your doctor if possible and if not, maybe find a doctor you can work with. If all you end up needing is b12, that's a good thing. If you end up needing more help, starting with your doctor and a heart to heart Talk will have you going in the right direction.

      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.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
