Turkey Stuffing
0

4 posts in this topic

My formerly skeptical mom, has witnessed Logan having a reaction a couple of times and is now convinced I am not just fanatical about what he eats, just for the sake of having a "cause".

With family get-together, holiday meals in mind, she asked me if turkey dressing would turn out edible for the rest of the gluten-loving family members if we made it out of rice bread, so that Logan could enjoy the stuffing with the rest of us. I said I hadn't tried it yet myself, so I did not know, but that I would pose the question on here to see if anyone else has ventured there.

I recently tried adding rice-pasta noodles to a homemade soup in the crock pot, but instead of having a soup with pasta in it at mealtime, we wound up with a thickened-stew, with NO hint of pasta. (It had disintegrated and became a mere thickener) oops

So how about it? Does anyone know whether non-celiacs would be able to palate a turkey stuffing made with rice bread? Has anyone ever tried it? Or would this be a major flop?

I thnk it would work, but haven't tried it myself. Last Thanksgiving, I made rice stuffing (a wild rice/brown rice mix, with onions and mushrooms) for the "stuffing". There are a lot of rice-based stuffing recipes (that are naturally gluten free) out there that I'm sure the family would love.

Last Thanksgiving I made stuffing that was very good! I didn't stuff the turkey with it though. I cubed the Featherlight Rice Bread and mixed them with butter and garlic salt. I toasted them in a 200 degree oven and stirred every now and then until they were crunchy. Then I mixed them with chicken broth, more butter and a mixture of sauteed onions, garlic, salt, pepper and poultry seasoning. Then I baked that for about 30 min. at 350. Yum!

Tarnalberry,

I have made some stuffing with rice, for Logan which he liked. I thought it was good too, but there are those in my family who are stuck on tradition, so to speak, very stuck in their ways, and just kind of looked at it.

Jenni,

Did anyone who is NOT a gluten-free convert eat the stuffing you made? It sounds delicious, but did any of the skeptics enjoy it with you?

Thanks for the recipe, I will definitely try it at home with my own hubby and children who are used to sampling my gluten-free experiments. I guess then we can make a judgement call as to whether the extended bunch will accept it as a reasonable alternative. I can't think of anything worse for my little son's feelings than if they got a mouthful of it and started making all kinds of negative comments or even politely refused to eat it. He would question why he has to eat "crap that normal people won't even touch!" when in fact it could be delicious, but slightly different textured than the average joe is used to.

Does it have to be the featherlight bread that I use, or would any rice bread work?

Thanks for your response.

    • Hey guys, the last year and a month of transitioning to totally gluten free was hard, but I now seem to be healthy. The first six months I got horrible cramps that would suddenly come and hit hard, but I really havent seen any of those since about February-March. One thing that I wouldnt say has gotten better is my psyche. I was always sort of an anxious person (hard not to be when you dont feel well yet you have "IBS" and you're just "nervous", which all of you probably know), but I am borderline hermit now. I finally went to the doctor today and was prescribed prozac, so hopefully that helps, but I was just wondering about you guys? Thanks  
    • Thank-you, thank-you! I am so relieved to have input from others who have experience with celiac disease. I'm not sure what I'm going to do about the school cafeteria. I'll ask our very nice and experienced Cafe Mgr for realistic info and details. My primary concern is the safety of my daughter and packing a lunch will not be that big a deal, even though she prefers the fresh prep instead of lunchbox offerings. Sigh. It sounds as if the 504 is unquestionably the preference over the IHCP, since the 504 is binding and follows the student through his/her academic career. I have a meeting with the admin team on Tuesday. Until then, I'm reading lots so i can be informed. And, dkader, I sent you a private message via the blog's feature. I'd certainly love to read the 504 info you have squirreled away. Thank-you so much!
    • The risk of a non-celiac getting intestinal lymphoma is extremely tiny.  The risk of someone with refractory celiac disease is higher (I think maybe double?) but 2 x extremely tiny is still extremely tiny, and an elevated antibody level is not enough to say you have the refractory version.  You could have a repeat endoscopy to look for damage.  Are you still having symptoms?
    • Hello... i got dignoised July 11th... since then I found out I can't handle corn, garlic or dairy.... her stomic might be extra sensitive right now.... im not a doc but I have noticed with out those three foods I have felt better but I belive I might have to cut out more  good luck with you child!!! Its hard
    • About the dairy...I have been giving her lactose free milk and she doesn't have much else for dairy. I am lactose intolerant and I get nausea right away and then get diarrhea later. My daughter doesn't seem to have the same type of reaction I do, so I don't think it's that. For those that are lactose intolerant, were you sick right after eating lactose, or did it take a few hours or days?
