Karen- Tell me more about this Brazilian cheese bread?

 

Irish- I just discovered the egg problem about 2 weeks ago. So I haven't full looked into substituting. For some reason I was under the impression that it was more for recipe with an egg or 2 and might not really work for one of those low carb type recipes with 5 eggs. I hate to waste! so im reluctant to try it.

I'm not Karen but do make Brazilian Cheese Bread often thanks to Addie's suggestion many moons ago.

Here is one I use most, but have done others:

Sorry. I did not know you were talking about 5-egg type recipes. 

 

Look around the internet, The vegan sites may be able to help

What sort of things does he like to bake?  There are some alternatives that aren't too bad - money and taste wise.  Cookies with no flour (PB choc chip & a chocolate with nuts or chips that I make).  Betty Crocker brownie mix - better and fudgyer than "real" ones.  Brazilian cheese breads and various versions.  There have been a lot of recipes on this forum.  Or just ask and maybe someone has one for you.

 

My family likes Jovial pasta the best - it doesn't overcook.  I never pay attention to the times - I just test them.  There is another brand that is good that way, too that wasn't mentioned......  I will check later and edit it back in here.

 

 

The first baking item I purchased was coconut flour and it lasted a while! Most recipes only require 1/2 cup of the stuff so the fact that it was nearly $7, didn't really matter. It turns out the coconut flour absorbs alot of liquid, usually in the form of many eggs. Now I have discovered that I have a problem with eggs! So no more coconut flour! Glad I didn't replace that bag.

 

Hubs' Dad gave him $20 when he dropped him off freshman year of college....he came home with $19 of it at the end of the year..  He HATES to spend money :D.  He likes to bake mostly cookies, bars, that kind of thing.  He said this is a good excuse not to bake for a while because we both could stand to lose a few pounds :D.

 

A good friend of mine is diabetic and she often substitutes applesauce in recipes.

The low carb recipes have a lot of eggs but they come out really moist and tasty. I think the applesauce substitute came out well, so I suppose if I switch to a traditional gluten free flour instead of the coconut, it would work out fine to replace just one or 2 eggs. If i use regular flour and regular recipes, then it should work out. I just have to do it.

 

I can't believe I have never heard of this cheese bread. I will have to make it sometime. That is, assuming I eventually get eggs back. Right now im too afraid of them.

Try very hard to not become afraid of any food. Keep a good log of reactions and trial any food you remove after some time. The trial should be that whole food only...as in eat one hard boiled or fried egg (with nothing in the pan...good nonsticks work for this) all by itself..,preferably before anything else has been ingested that day and only on days that you are feeling good digestively.

Gluten free & egg free is tough.  Lived through it though, and learned a lot.

 

Go for your old recipes that have only 1 or 2 eggs to replace.  Think about why the egg was used in the recipe to determine which way you will replace it.  (lighter texture?, hold the other ingredients together?, and how much flavor was this egg adding to the dish?)

 

For dishes that need a lift ~ egg replacer product / baking powder & vinegar

hold it together/ flavor ~ fruit puree (as in applesauce or babyfood) I have added water to almond paste in food processor,

hold it together (no added flavor) chia seed or flax with water, gelatin [vegan recipes are not going to show how easy it is to swap eggs for gelatin ~ there is such a thing as vegan gelatin, but not convenient to find]

 

I love Cybele Pascal recipe book, Allergen Free Baker's Handbook.

Hon, tapioca starch based recipes are not at all low carb.

DItto!!! I was gluten-free, DF, EF, SF, and few more "something-effs"at one point and still managed to eat and gain some serious hip and butt cushion, too. :D .

I make a bread like substance with apples ground in the blender added to coconut flour, sugar (or agave or honey), cinnamon and one egg...the egg could be replaced to but I'm fine with them in moderation.

Oh I usually add a touch of vanilla too...I love vanilla :)

Half coconut/half almond flour is good too.

 

 

that sounds interesting!  I would need some cinnamon with that!  :)

 

SMRI - I would be happy to share any recipes with you, if you want them.

Post away!!!!  I feel like I'm learning to cook all over again--even though I haven't had to change THAT much, it's making me think a lot more in the kitchen then I've had to.  I had some gluten-free waffles this morning and normally I would have syrup but because of my calorie restrictions, I had to come up with something else so I warmed up some fresh fruit.  What I REALLY am craving now are some Hostess Powdered Sugar Donuts so any substitute for that would be lovely :D

Its a boy.  And that is so right!  Trying to convince him he might like a more rainproof jacket than a lined hoodie.  He won't have cute stuff for his walls or nice matching pillow shams & bed spread but we are trying to whittle down the tools to one tool bag and the power drill box!

This is the recipe I use for brazilian cheese bread. http://www.ourbestbites.com/2011/02/quick-brazilian-cheese-rolls-pao-de-queijo-2/

 

Something to keep in mind if you make it is that it will not work with an egg substitute. I tried several times with several options for an egg sub and every time they came out rather flat and hard. Other than the egg and tapioca though it's a fun recipe to play with.

You could use any nuts or chips with these - just check butterscotch chips - some are made with malt.

 

Flourless chocolate cookies
 
 
Mix 2 cups powdered sugar, 1/2 cup cocoa, 2 tsp. cornstarch, 1/4 tsp. salt, 2 egg whites (not beaten). 
Should be thick enough to form balls; if not, add more sugar. Should be sticky and form a imperfect ball. 
Stir in 1 cup nuts (unsalted peanuts, pecans, or walnuts.) Form into 15 balls, place on parchment paper, and bake 16-19 minutes in a 300 oven until crackly and shiny. Cool completely. . They have a sort of crisp-meringue outside, and a soft, chewy inside, 
 
 
 
Any way.....  if you go to the main page (for some reason it works better for me from the main page) and use the "google" search, you can find lots of things.  Its in the top right corner.  Use the little "gear" for more options.  If you choose "as posts" (down near the bottom) you can read the actual posts and its easier.

Some people use Funyons.  They were gluten-free last I heard.

You can make your own crispy onions. Just soak in milk, bread and fry in oil. Lots of recipes if you need step by step instructions with measurements if you google for it. Making your own are tastier and far better because of the lack of weird ingredients imo. Of course, there's nothing wrong with the occasional Funyon if you're into that sort of thing, they're good.

okay, I made a Bday dinner for my bestie tonight.

All her faves:
santa marghuerita prosecco
duck pate, brie , fruit, crackers
Potato gratin
asparagus
Filet of beef tenderloin studded with garlic and draped with bacon
Port wine sauce with mushrooms
Tiramisu
and we decanted a bottle of  Taylor Fladgate Port from 1994 that we have stored since I bought it for J as a wedding gift 1997
It was a perfect 100 from Wine Spectator back then and we have waited to share it with her when we moved to florida (she loves port)

 

I should be good and buzzed and hyper by 10PM. :lol:

    • This easy to make bean dip makes a great addisiton to any good munching session. Goes gret with salsa and gluten-free beer. View the full article
    • Good grief!  :o. I'm so sorry, I wish there was something I could do or say to help you.  I agree with the NP, your primary needs to be requesting copies of your records from the other doctors, as well as the records and lab reports from your hospital stay.  They are supposed to work together as a team, not just individually out in left field.
    • Just a quick one to say I got a diagnosis of celiac disease today. I know in the past it's been helpful for me to know the outcome for other folk, so thought I would update. The moral of this story is even with a VERY borderline blood test it's worth persisting. thanks for all the help Sue

    • Well, I am stressed to the max. I just spent 3 days in the hospital with D and stomach pain, dizziness, chest pain, generally unwell. Then another trip to the ER on top of that. My protein was low and my RBC and hemoglobin dropped below normal in 3 days. Not terribly low, but below normal. I also had metabolic acidosis which still confuses me. I usually eat every 2-3 hours despite it causing pain to keep my energy up and was unable to eat that frequently in the hospital. I usually carry protein with me and had been taking liquid iron which I stopped a few weeks ago because my new endo is not a fan of iron supplements. As soon as I got home from the hospital I started with my protein drinks and blackstrap molasses for iron.  I now have bilateral mild pleural effusions and a nodule on my left lung, which hopefully is nothing, but was not there on a CT back in March. In addition, my left adrenal gland, which also appeared normal in March, is calcified and the report indicates this is most likely due to a previous bleed or infection. My colon appears tortuous (whatever that means) and we are waiting on colon/endo biopsies. I have been gluten-free since March except for cc so expect the biopsies to again be negative.  My primary care is useless. I am in the process of getting a new one I will see on the 7th but need the current one to fill out FMLA paperwork because I both physically and mentally need time to recover. I will have to go off of payroll for 2 weeks but I think I need to. I called the primary's office today to discuss the hospital tests which she does NOT have yet and to ask if we should/could start a low dose of prednisone because my body is attacking itself. My thyroid on ultrasound is also abnormal though my bloodwork thus far is normal. But it hurts on that side. The only reason the ultrasound was ordered is because I asked for it in the first place. The only reason I have started seeing an endocrinologist is because I found one myself. Anyway...I broke down in tears on the phone eith her today and she told me I was having a "manic episode". I have no history of mania. I only recently started taking xanax to help me cope with the stress of being sick. I was not sick until I did this stupid gluten challenge over the winter. My mother was in town and spoke with the doctor on the phone as well who was trying to get my mom to take me to a psych hospital. She also threatened to send the police to check on me. My mother assured her I was in no danger and we hung up the phone in complete shock. Admittedly, I was in tears when I called her and probably sounded like a fucking mess. But I believe I referenced the dropping iron, protein, fluid near lungs, enlarged thyroid and attacked adrenal gland then literally said "my body is attacking itself and I need help" to which she said, "I think you are manic". Lovely. If I was a mess before that phone call it was 10x worse when we hung up.  Anyway, this is the first night it has been extremely difficult to sleep. I admit my thoughts about my odd symptoms keep me up often recently. I mean, who the hell bleeds from or gets an infected adrenal gland?! I am sure it was another time I begged my primary for help. On a side not, the NP at the ER told me the primary should be putting these pieces together and communicating with my other doctors better. He then stated that he used to go to the same practice but left because the practice got too big and like a business. So I got some validation from that chat.  A melatonin or a .25 xanax usually does the trick for me to sleep but I am so disturbed about my interaction today, stressed at my health, stressed that my ex has our son so much because I am always sick (bless him for coming through), stressed that I have to go back to this awful doctor because I will need the FMLA paperwork before I see the new doc on the 7th.  8 months ago, I took a multivitamin when I remembered it and that was it.  End rant. Maybe now that it is off my chest I can finally sleep.
