I make bread just so I can make it into crumbs, but there are less labor-intensive substitutes. For breading meat or fish, you can use crushed Rice Chex, or potato chips, or something else that bakes up crunchy. One of my cookbooks recommends making corn bread or muffins and crumbling those as toppings. As a filler for meat loaf or meatballs, you can substitute cooked rice, grated vegetables, or gluten free oatmeal if you can tolerate that. To make crumbs from bread, cut or tear slices into cubes or small pieces, spread out on a tray to dry somewhat, then put into a 250 degree oven and stir every 30 minutes until they are evenly dry and slightly brown. If they are dry enough, you can use a food processor or blender to make crumbs and store them at room temperature. If you're not sure they are dry enough (you don't want mold), you can store them in the freezer.

What Neroli said.

We bake Gluten Free Pantry French bread, and save the heels from each loaf. They get cut up into croutons, or ground into bread crumbs in the blender. We keep the bread in the refrigerator and then freeze the heels until needed.

I like the Schar bread crumbs the best. They are pricey, but the little bag does go a long way. I also use Rice Chex ground up on their own or if I need to stretch the Schar crumbs, I combine the Rice Chex crumbs and Schar crumbs. If I have any bread failures, I grind those up into bread crumbs and put them in the freezer until I am ready to use them. These I tend to use in meatloaf or meatballs because the consistency varies so much and using them this way is less noticeable.

This might be a stupid question, but when you make bread crumbs from bread yourself as you describe, does it keep longer than the loaf of bread itself? I remember my mother-in-law keeping a bag a fresh bread crumbs she got from a deli. I was appalled when she told me she kept it for months. Do baked/dried out crumbs keep longer? I always figured regular bread crumbs had some preservatives in them.

I keept the heels from my Udi and Rudi and Katz breads in the freezer. When I need breadcrumbs, I take them out, thaw them and whirl them in the food processor. I also cut them into pieces, drizzle some melted dairy free margarine and season them and cook them on high in the microwave stirring often until they are crispy. I use the croutons for topping soups.

Thought you might appreciate the sense of humour of this recipe author:

"1/2 c breadcrumbs (for breadcrumbs, buy some crappy gluten-free bread from the grocery store and toast it then pulse in the food processor until crumby)

When you buy "normal" bread crumbs they are at room temp and seem to keep forever. The trick is to make sure they are dried out. Mold and bacteria need moisture to grow, so if your crumbs are thoroughly dry you can keep them on the shelf. I used to keep them in the freezer, but I started leaving the crumbs (or the dried cubes I was too lazy to pulverize) on the shelf and they have been just fine. If you have doubts, just keep them in the freezer.

Thanks Lee. The mositure thing makes sense.

What do you use for bread crumbs?

Thank you

Aleia's gluten free bread crumbs. They come plain or italian. They are great for chicken parm and brown nicely. Our regular grocery stores carry them here.

    • Anxiously waiting
      Hi all. Ive just had my blood test results which showed a high level for coeliacs,originally i went to doctor coz my bowel movements had changed and haven't been normal for over a month and i am very tired,the tiredness i assumed was low iron and my tummy/bowel issues well i thought IBS Maybe or a bug as ive not really had issues before,anyway she has put me on a wait list to have a endoscopy done. Im so so confused as i didn't expect i may be coeliac,my symptoms come and go so on a day im good i think sweet my issues are resolved but then they come back so they are not consistent which makes me wonder if it is coeliac or not,but my tiredness,headaches,shortness of breath,tummy gurgling,different bowel movements,feeling nauseous are all symptoms that come at different times. The test i had was for gliadin IgG which was 20 but should be 7 or lower, i guess im just anxious to wait who knows how long for the endoscopy coz i would like to try and cut out gluten but the dr said not to till the procedure is done. P.s im in australia so not sure if things are different here.
    • Celiac Night Vision
      Scotomas returned for the 7th year on the 24th February despite liver pâté and have varied since with 3 brief gaps. I have always had migraine, latterly occurring more than once a month, usually of basilar or retinal type with aura (but no headache) lasting less than 5 minutes. A recent bout looked like a TIA and led to a CT scan which revealed clear major vessels but old cerebellar infarcts, so maybe migraine accounts for poor memory too. The scotomas are very different from migraine eye symptoms - stationary, irregular in shape and lasting hours. I think food is excluded as the cause but seasonality, gaps, variation with wind direction and rain mean that pollen is still a possibility. Scott Adams did a marvellous thing founding this site so celiacs could enlighten each other. Please post if you have anything like these scotomas!
    • healthy bread recipe?
      Eat what you eat at lunch or dinner.  I am happy with a fried hamburger patty, fish, or chicken (I know it needs to be fresh or frozen for the histamine diet).  Yes, I eat veggies for breakfast!   Wanted to add that I was glutened in July (GI ordered follow-up antibodies testing and it was high)  and it took me 3 months to recover.  Picked up a histamine intolerance and became lactose intolerant again.  Luckily, when I healed, the histamine thing went away (or  Diminished ) and the lactose intolerance resolved.    I was getting hives, rashes and itching (not DH), vomiting, etc.  So, her intolerances may be just temorary!  
    • Could this be celiac or is it really just IBS?
      Are you sure you had the complete celiac panel?  Here are the tests:   -Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA and (tTG) IgG -Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and (DGP) IgG -EMA IgA  -total serum IgA and IgG (control test)     -endoscopic biopsy - make sure at least 6 samples are taken   VERY IMPORTANT:  Keep eating gluten daily until ALL testing is complete or the tests can be inaccurate.     (Source: NVSMOM -- 😊)   Here is more information from a reputable site (and not just info from a crazy cyclist on the Internet!):   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/   IBS, in my opinion, means "I Be Stumped!"  It is just a cop out!  So is the "stressed" thing.     I also had my GB out too.   It was a non-functioning (0% per HIDA scan), no stones, and rotting.     You seem to have many celiac disease symptoms.  Verify (obtain copies of your lab tests) to see if you got the complete panel. You might just have had the TTG IGA and TTG IGG tests.  Good for screening but it does not catch all celiacs.  My TTG tests are always negative even on follow-up testing.  The DGP test catches a positive for me.  My biopsies revealed moderate to severe damage.  If my celiac-savvy GI did not order the complete panel, my celiac disease diagnosis would never have been caught.   if celiac disease is really ruled out, research mast cell disorders.  The flushing and GI upset sound familiar!  You can have more than one thing going on!  But I would put my money on celiac disease!            
    • tightness in throat after eating gluten?
      I've noticed that if I accidentally eat gluten, for the next few days I have this tightness in my throat. It feels like my throat is closing. It's not constant, but comes and goes throughout the next 1-3 days. My hands have also been itchy. Is this a normal symptom for celiac or gluten intolerance, or could it possibly be an allergy? I haven't been tested or diagnosed with celiac or anything yet, so I'm still not entirely sure. All I know is that gluten makes me very sick.. But especially with the itchiness and tight throat.. I'm allergic to acetaminophen and my reaction is similar, so it just makes me wonder. What do you think?

      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.
