Well, you're in luck! gluten-free mozzarella sticks and onion rings are easy to make and just as delicious. I know what you mean about soft pretzels, potstickers and fried chicken, though. Fried chicken can still be nearly as good, though.

i know :) :D . But being a spousal caregiver living on a fixed income, i don't always have the time, energy, or means to do things like this. And the times that I attempted onion rings or fried chicken pre- gluten-free didn't come out too well. Plus, the OP was a chef asking for ideas of things to make gluten-free in a restruant- type setting, i was also thinking of things I miss being able to have the option of getting on the few times I am able to go out to eat. :D


Here's another one--- chicken (or other flavor) pot pie.

Oh, boy, do I hear ya about the pizza 'bones'!!


as far as cornbread.... Gluten Free Pantry and Bob's Red Mill both have pretty good cornbread mixes. i used both of those last year over the holidays, and my cornbread loving- husband couldn't tell they were gluten-free!


Thanks for the suggestion. I'll try them. My attempts to bake (and I LOVE to bake - was a home ec major) have had dismal results. Not only do I have to be gluten free, but also casein and egg free. The texture of my baked goods, so far, leaves a lot to be desired. But, I'll keep trying. Thanks, again. :D

I have to totally agree with this.
Yeast raised rolls is one of the things I am still having trouble making gluten free. Most of my other favorites have have been able to convert to gluten free.

I can't remember if the items/ recipes I suggested are both casein and egg free-- I'd have to look. But if they are, or can be adapted to be, they should work for you. I, too have struggled with gluten-free baking (and I don't have the limitations you do), and the cornbread i've made is one of the few things that has seemed to turn out well!

some more I thought of-

anything 'mexican' from a fast food place or restraunt-- taco salads, empanadas, chimichangas, enchilada's, burritos, churros. (I had to take a blind friend thru the drive thru at Taco Time today, can you tell?)

also, french bread. elephant ears. funnel cakes. (helk, twinkies, too! :)). ice cream sandwhiches. balklava...

I miss so much, but most are things I never ate in huge quantities anyhow. I think it's just that I can't have them anymore that makes me want them so badly.

Subway (tuna hoagie... loved their bread)
A Burger King bacon double cheeseburger
McDonald's Big Mac and their Sausage Egg McMuffin

REAL french bread
REAL chocolate chip cookies made from the recipe on the back of Nestles morsels
My homemade challah bread
Real, regular beer

I baked chocolate chip cookies for 38 years before having to be gluten-free and the taste is so imprinted on my brain that no gluten-free recipe has remotely measured up. It's just not the same so I don't eat them anymore (sniff).

I miss puff pastry. I've seen a few gluten-free versions, but holy cow, is it labor intensive. I miss phyllo dough. I used to love to bake. Not so much anymore.

Oh, man, yes. And churros and profiteroles.
Salted caramel tart with shortbread crust. I can make it gluten-free decently but not perfectly.

Also if anyone can make a gluten-free Triscuit or Shredded wheat they are a genius. One of the few processed things I miss--mainly for the texture is Triscuits. I've looked and have not found even any regular recipes for duplicating Triscuits, let alone gluten free ones.


OMG! I ate an entire box of Triscuits in 3 days prior to my biopsy because the doctor was pretty sure I was going to be going gluten-free after it...oh, I miss that crunchy salty treat.

Besides all of the above:

Sushi - I'd like to be able to get a california roll and a shrimp tempura roll at a restaurant or at the grocery. I know I can make it all myself, but sometimes you just want it done for you. I'm also not that big a fan of nigiri.

Good bread - I worked in a french bakery for 6 years before being diagnosed. So I'm a little jaded.

Beer - anything you can't see through. The first person to create a gluten-free porter should be thrown a parade.
