I have only had Udi's hot dog buns twice and grilled them both times. I had to because I knew that they would become very soggy otherwise. They are a decent vehicle for brats but I, too, am still hoping to come up with a better homemade alternative.

Then I guess steaming would not be a good choice to try?

Though I have not tried it with gluten-free products (homemade or otherwise) I likely would not try steaming in this situation as you want to suck moisture out of the bun rather than increasing the moisture content. That is one of the reasons steamed buns (i.e. pork) are so soft and squishy!

As a fellow brat fan, have you tried steaming them in aromatics then finishing by grilling/roasting brats? It is an awesome technique - it really keeps the brats incredibly juicy and moist. But then we are so fortunate to have a local guy make fantastic (and believe me, I am very particular) juicy gluten-free brats. Roasted grapes, caramelized onions and homemade German mustard is one of my favourite ways to enjoy brats.

Yes,....I have done that many times, and I agree they are great!

The concoction I listed is something I do when I don't want to fire up the grill, and I really only started doing it more often after not being able to eat the old buns I used to eat them on.

I still have no issue eating a brat done like you mentioned on a plate with no bun. I love brats! :)

One day this fall, I will most likely go back to eating normal for a couple of weeks and see if anything happens which is what the GI doc suggested. He says all I have is periodic IBS, which my mother also has. As before I don't know who to believe at this point! LOL

The good news is that if you don't have an issue with gluten, nothing will happen when you go back to it. Your body will let you know and probably rather quickly.

Sylvia,.....I didn't mean for this thread to turn into what it has BTW.

I see in your 'sig-line' that you have CONCLUSIVE proof of the disease. Obviously you are doing the correct thing, and will need to do that for the rest of your life.

You can surely understand my confusion though?

Being told two different things by two different doctors, with no real 'proof' other than I carry 2 genes. I am going to strip the results from my EnteroLab report once again at the end of this.

I DO still get bouts of GI issues even after going gluten-free, but they seem to be more infrequent. That is why I think the real test will be 'challenging' myself this fall. I can't take the chance right now in this heat due to the fact this is my busiest time of year in terms of what I do for a living.

I think highly of virtually everyone on this forum, and it is the best resource I have found. :)

"Gluten Sensitivity Gene Test

HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0302

HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0502

Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 3,1 (Subtype 8,5)

Interpretation Of HLA-DQ Testing: HLA-DQB1 gene analysis reveals that you have one of the main genes that predisposes to gluten sensitivity and celiac sprue, HLA-DQB1*0201 or HLA-DQB1*0302. Each of your offspring has a 50% chance of receiving this gene from you, and at least one of your parents passed it to you. You also have a non-celiac gene predisposing to gluten sensitivity (any DQ1, DQ2 not by HLA-DQB1*0201, or DQ3 not by HLA-DQB1*0302). Having one celiac gene and one gluten sensitive gene, means that each of your parents, and all of your children (if you have them) will possess at least one copy of a gluten sensitive gene. Having two copies also means there is an even stronger predisposition to gluten sensitivity than having one gene and the resultant immunologic gluten sensitivity or celiac disease may be more severe. This test was developed and its performance characteristics determined by the American Red Cross - Northeast Division. It has not been cleared or approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration."

No problem whatever this thread turns into. :lol: Hopefully there'll be more recipes posted, too. LOL

I definitely had GI issues. The reason I went the whole nine yards with testing is that I knew my daughter had problems with gluten, too (at one time several years ago she saw a naturopathic doctor, who did the saliva test). I figured if I didn't take it seriously and get tested with both the blood test and endoscopy/biopsies, how would I expect her to take it seriously. I had the old celiac panel and was off-the-chart positive on both tTg and EMA so I went for the endoscopy. So yes, it was conclusive, which I was hoping it would be as it certainly explained my GI problems. I still have issues from time to time but overall feel pretty good.

In contrast my daughter had the newer DGP test and basically got the same results I did even though she ate gluten-light a good bit of the time. She skipped the endoscopy and went gluten-free after she got her test results late last Aug.

There is no doubt in my mind that my late mother had it also but was undiagnosed. If only we knew then what we know now about celiac. I am very grateful for this forum and also consider it the best resource I have found.

Yes, I can certainly see your confusion as the gene tests are inconclusive in predicting if someone will actually become celiac. I have no idea what my genes are or those of my daughter. She's also hypo-thyroid and anemic (not sure what the results are of her recent tests...hopefully improving). I don't blame you for waiting until fall to do your gluten challenge. It might be very revealing...or then again it might not. 'Tis such a mystery.

You might want to post a question on the Pre-Diagnosis section of the forum as some of the gurus who understand genes will be more likely to see it there.

I just ordered King Arthur gluten free whole grain flour mix for bread. I'm presently located at an altitude of 7500 ft. and am anxious to try King Arthur. I've had fabulous luck with King Arthur, and yesterday made blueberry muffins with their muffin mix, and they were excellent.I'll make a smaller than normal bread loaf, and do a few hamburg buns.Hate to pay shipping, but this is not available in stores....yet.

I have some of their regular gluten-free flour that I ordered from their website...but I haven't used it yet. They have a lot of gluten-free recipes online.

I made blueberry muffins yesterday, too, only used Pamela's Baking & Pancake Mix.

I'm one mile from a Kroger, and they do not carry this product here, so I did not mind ordering it via mail. I'm sure I could order it from Kroger, as they are carrying more and more products, but we will be leaving the area soon. A few days ago I wiped out their shelf supply of Pamela's Cornbread and Muffin mix....I now have enough to get me thru the coming winter.....I always stock up so I don't have to order on-line too often.

This is a recipe that my family has liked. It is from the Gluten-Free Homemaker's website (http://glutenfreehomemaker.com/2009/03/gluten-free-hamburger-buns-focaccia/). Actually - after searching for a good bun recipe, and then finding one that I actually liked, I have found that I prefer my hamburger sans bun now - I can better taste my hamburger and all of the fixings!

I have pasted the recipe below as well. I have found quite a few recipes that I like off of this website though. We love her recipe for Cinnamon Rolls!

Recipe: Focaccia Bread and Hamburger Buns

Ingredients

1 1/3 c. brown rice flour

2/3 c. sweet rice flour

1 c. tapioca starch

1 Tb. instant yeast

2 tsp. unflavored gelatin

1 Tb. xanthan gum

1/2 tsp. onion powder (optional)

1 1/2 tsp. salt

2 tsp. sugar or honey

1 – 1 1/4 c. warm water

4 eggs

1/4 c. olive oil

1 tsp. vinegar

olive oil

Italian seasoning

coarse salt

Instructions

Mix the wet ingredients together in the bowl of your mixer using 1 cup of the water.

Combine the dry ingredients in a separate bowl.

Add the dry ingredients to the mixing bowl and beat for 2 minutes. Add more water if it is too dry. The dough should be very soft and sticky.

Transfer the dough to whatever pan you are using. This recipe will fill a large cookie sheet.

Let it rise in a warm place for 30 minutes.

Brush the top of the dough with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and Italian seasoning.

Bake at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes. The top should be nicely browned.

    • Squirmingitch, I forgot to mention best of luck to you during the storm! I hope you are safe and that your home isn't impacted too badly! I'm on the coast in SC so we will see some storms from it but nothing near as bad as what you will have. Take care and good luck.
    • SquirmingItch, I really appreciate you gathering info for me! To answer your questions, yes, I'm on Dapsone now and have been on it for about 4.5 weeks. I have been gluten free for the same amount of time. I started on 50 mg of Dapsone which didn't seem to help much. I spoke to my doctor about it and after about a week she raised it to 100 mg. Since then I did notice a huge improvement in both my rash and itch. I no longer have any active rashes and my itching isn't completely gone but it's very minimal. I have been getting weekly blood tests done and will soon be moving to monthly.  My DH skin biopsy was done before the gluten free diet and Dapsone. My results for the skin biopsy came back as inconclusive, but even with those results, my doctor was convinced I had DH. I specifically asked her about the fact that she took the biopsy directly from the lesion rather than next to it and if that affects the result. Her explanation was that if it's a fresh enough lesion that isn't scratched, there should be IgA antibodies present. But she said that an inconclusive result isn't surprising because the IgA antibodies come and go from the skin so quickly that it can be very difficult to get a positive result, even in someone who is positive.  That's when she decided to run the celiac blood panel on me. And even though those results came back positive for the deamidated gliadin and negative for tTg, she still is very convinced that I have DH. I am happy that my doctor seems to be certain, but I would just feel better if the results were more definitive. The one other thing I am waiting on is I have been asked to attend grand rounds at the local academic hospital in 2 weeks. I guess grand rounds is where all of the academic dermatologists and dermatopathologists get together to review certain complicated cases. They will meet with me, review all of my pictures, biopsies and blood tests. My situation has been so complicated so they asked me to come. I am hoping maybe then I will get some more answers. 
    • It sure is, it really is. 
    • shellyb, I have info. for you & you may yet be able to get an official dx from your dermatologist as she sounds like she would be willing to learn. If you are dx'd with dh it is definitive & no other testing is needed. You don't need to see a GI. Im in FL & have had a long day watching Tropical Storm Hermine & making preparations for it's track which is over where I live. I'm tired! I will have links for you to reputable medical info. on the rash but it make take me till tomorrow or even longer if we lose power.  I'll be back as soon as I can. Question: You're on Dapsone now? How long have you been on it? How is it working for you? Are you getting the proper testing at regular intervals to make sure it isn't doing bad things to you? Were you gluten free before the skin biopsy?
    • Thank you so much for your quick response, GFinDC. While I wouldn't be completely opposed to another skin biopsy, I already had 4 done (3 were done prior to my dermatologist suspecting DH) so I don't love the idea of  yet another hole and scar on my body. Plus, fortunately I don't have any fresh lesions now, which I believe is needed for the biopsy. I wish I would have known to see a GI before going gluten free but I was so desperate to get any relief that I started that and Dapsone as soon as my doctor mentioned it to me.  My rash is definitely symmetrical and I have it in all of the "classic" DH spots although it basically spread over my entire body. As much as I'd like a more formal diagnosis, I really don't think I can go through all of that again. It was so bad that not only was I getting no sleep but I had to change my sheets every morning because there was blood all over them. Sorry, TMI. The worst part is that this all developed during my ninth month of pregnancy and got much worse after I delivered my baby. So not only was I dealing with this insanely itchy rash but I had a newborn and a toddler to take care of.  My daughters' pediatrician did mention doing DNA testing on me first and then my daughters to see if there's any concern that they may be susceptible. I may just go that route for now. I was just curious if others have had similar test results to mine and how did their doctors treat it? Thanks again!
