Bread Crumbs - What To Use
0

14 posts in this topic

I know this topic has to be answered already in here, but I've tried searching the board and can't come up with the right combo of words to get my answer...

What do I use in place of bread crumbs? I'm used to using saltines and Parmesan bread crumbs when I make chicken and meatloaf. What can I replace them with?

I use Rice Chex. I just put some in a plastic bag and smash them with a rolling pin. Kinnikinnick makes a Panko style "bread crumb", which I have bought, but not tried yet.

i use corn chex for the chicken, They make a great baked chicken tender kinda thing.

I have used toasted gluten-free bread for meatloaf. Also gluten-free pretzel that you process work nicely too. The pretzel is nice on chicken breasts.

I get the Schar crumbs for breading, have used pretzels on chicken as already mentioned -- super yum. And you can always use gluten-free bread that you've toasted or allowed to go stale.

Orgran's Rice Crumbs are another good option.

Corn Chex or pretzels! Awesome!

Both of you mentioned using gluten-free bread. I swear to you, my gluten-free bread will NOT get stale! LOL I keep it in the freezer, but I was going to make meatloaf last week so in the morning I took 2 pieces out and toasted them repeatedly.... they would not get crunchy! LOL Every time I'd retoast it my husband would stare at me and say "and what's supposed to happen to it THIS time?". LOL It became a big joke and I ended up using regular bread crumbs and letting them eat meatloaf, I ate tuna on my "toasted" bread.. hehehehe

According to my Better Homes & Gardens cookbook, you can use soft (untoasted) breadcrumbs in place of regular at a different proportion.

1/3 cup regular bread crumbs = 1 cup soft bread crumbs

To make soft, just put bread in food processor. My meatloaves and meatballs turn out great!

Fresh bread crumbs or Ener-G bread crumbs for us. Mostly Ener-G. I tried another brand with baked cod a few weeks ago and no one liked it. :( Ener-G has good texture for breaded fish, chicken, pork chops, etc. Two thumbs up from us.

For meatloaf and meatballs I use crushed rice crackers and for breading I found some gluten free corn flake crumbs.

For a successful panade (the combination of breadcrumbs soaked with liquid such as milk) my preference is also to use homemade gluten-free breadcrumbs (I also make homemade gluten-free sourdough chunky croutons). Panade adds the texture you look for in meatballs and meatloaf. You can also add some coconut flour as a stabilizer. Adding finely minced mushrooms adds moisture and lovely depth. I also often add quite a lot of Parmigiano Reggiano for awesome flavour and texture.

A fun thing with meatballs is to insert a little cube of a good melting cheese inside.

I make bread just so I can have bread crumbs. I make Bette Hagman's 4 flour bread, which doesn't make the best slicing bread and crumbles fast, but it makes great crumbs. To go from loaf of bread to bread crumbs: Cut the bread into 1/2 inch cubes. Let dry in a bowl or on a cookie sheet overnight if you have time. Put the cubes into the oven at 250 F and stir every half hour. Check each time to see if they have gotten hard and crunchy yet. When they are ready, turn off the oven and leave them in there until the oven is cool (overnight is fine). Throw the cubes into the food processor to make crumbs, or fry them up with seasoning to make croutons. These will be dry enough to store at room temperature without getting moldy, or you can keep them in the freezer. This might be your alternative to trying to toast the bread dry.

I make my own or buy a loaf of gluten free bread to use for bread crumbs. I have never had a problem drying them out and processing them in the food processor. We use crushed tortilla chips alot for a coating. Our favorite is a whole bag of crushed tortilla chips mixed with at least a packet of taco seasoning (or more to desired taste) and coat chicken tenders with it (my husband dips the chicken in egg first). Spread onto baking pan and drizzle with butter and bake until done. They taste great with salsa or honey. I have heard of using crushed corn chips and potato chips also. I have also used instant mashed potato flakes.

Dang, Nancy -- what bread is that?! Udi's and Katz's will get very toasted. :) I'm going to try Ener-G in the future, as I hear it is awful for regular bread substitute (Udi's and Katz are my FAVORITE) but this isn't the first time I've heard it is good for breading. :) You guys are awesome. <3

I keep the end pieces of my Udi's bread in the freezer. When I have several I put them in the oven at 300 degrees for about 45 minutes and run through the food processor. Also, cut the pieces into shapes before baking to make "melba toast" for appetizers.

    • I too have heart palps, flutters, skips whatever you want to call them. Ecg shows nothing. I was told by my doctor it is due to my low iron which is due to celiac. They pretty much went away after being gluten-free. But occasionally do come back. I've actually been having them for the past 3 days. But I was glutened with really severe reaction about a week ago so not sure if its due to that. Or if iron is low right now. I am on supplements but it still goes up and down. I hear you about doctors. It seems if you don't do research yourself or ask questions they don't say or do or test for anything. 
    • For a number of years pre diagnosis I had irregular heartbeats - anything from a fluttering type thing to seemingly skipping one or more beats to rapid beats to something like a short drum riff. I had multiple ECG's which didn't find anything odd. It never did it when I was at the doctors or getting the ECG's. Sometimes it seemed to pound very hard & rapid, at these times I discovered if I just laid down flat on my back, it would restore normal rhythm almost instantly. These things happened at random whether I was at rest, sitting, standing, running or working hard. It was always short lived -- lasting only 1 to several seconds, perhaps the longest was close to a minute. I too have little faith in docs as I've had my share of being blown off, to misdiagnoses. The whole heart thing quit after I had been gluten-free for a while but if I get glutened, it returns.
    • My daughter had the HPV Vaccine last year. It was administered in three doses in April 2015, May 2015, and August 2015. Immediately after the third dose, she started having weird symptoms such has headaches, irritability, and a general feeling of being unwell (which she never had before). About three months later she started having gastro symptoms, most notably constant nausea. For several months we tried to figure out what was wrong and none of the doctors knew. After seeing many doctors and having a battery of tests, she was finally diagnosed with Celiac in August 2016. Her intestinal damage was a 3b Marsh score. No one else in our immediate or extended family has Celiac (myself and my other daughter were tested and are negative). No one else has symptoms or any indication that they could have Celiac. I feel like my daughter could have gone her whole life without being triggered and I'm feeling very guilty for making her get this controversial vaccine. I have done a lot of research and there seems to be conflicting studies regarding vaccines and autoimmune diseases. Some say there is no link, while others say there is a possible link, but it cannot be proven at this time. No one seems to know for sure what triggers Celiac...could it be vaccines? I'm wondering if anyone else feels that their Celiac Disease was triggered by a vaccine?  
    • Here is an article, albeit short, about Myocarditis and Celiac disease.  I have read before about a connection between the two and A-Fib is another one that can happen with undiagnosed Celiac. From one over-thinker to another......its the inflammation thing, along with maybe some genetic components to it.  I can't remember how long you have been gluten-free but it can take awhile for things to settle down, especially if your thyroid is wonky also.  I have Celiac and Hashi's so feel your pain, even though I have not had any cardiac involvement.  Some doctors really suck. I have a lifetime of bad with them so do not go that often, only when I have to and am leery about seeing any new ones. I am so done with that attitude of theirs. I think you need to find someone who has knowledge of Celiac and it's related conditions and who actually listens to the patient. That might be harder than finding a needle in a haystack but I wish you luck!
