We save the heals of our gluten-free bread and make them in the blender.

There have been many threads of different breadcrumb ideas...try typing "breadcrumbs" into the "search forum via google" at the top right of your screen - you'll find lots of ideas.

For meatballs/meatloaf, I crumble a slice or two of gluten free bread so it resembles fresh breadcrumbs.

For "breading" chicken, I use instant potato flakes.

I also just use the butts of my bread. (Yeah, I call them bread butts.) I just throw them in the blender or food processor. I use them for meatballs or meatloaf or mac & cheese, those sorts of things. I've never done something that is breaded exactly so I don't have experience with that although I don't see why they wouldn't be perfectly acceptable.

Thanks. I don't have bread butts (ha!). I haven't had bread for a long time (pre-celiac).

Anyone else? Want to make a nut loaf.

Gluten free Rice Chex cereal ground up in the blender makes a great coating.

I make bread just for crumbs, using Bette Hagman's Four Flour bread. You could use any recipe, but this one isn't very good for slices, but easy enough to make. After baking, I let it cool and cut it into 1/2" cubes or tear it up depending on how aggressive I feel toward the bread, let it sit in a big bowl covered with a towel to dry out a little overnight (and keep it from the cats). Next day I spread the pieces in a baking dish and put them in the oven at 250, stirring every 30 minutes until thoroughly dry. You can even leave them in the oven overnight as it cools. Cubes can be made into croutons at this point, or just bag it all up until you feel like getting the food processor or blender out. Grind in batches to the desired fineness and store at room temp. The key to safe storage is to make sure the bread is completely dry, otherwise it could get moldy. You could keep the crumbs in your freezer if you have more room than I do. A bread recipe that calls for 2 cups of flour will make, oddly enough, about 2 cups of crumbs. Today is a 2 loaf day because those eggplants need to be made into parmesan and that will take a lot of crumbs.

Kinnikinnick makes a very good panko style bread crumb.Drop them in the blender/food processor for smaller crumbs. Throw in some Italian seasoning for seasoned crumbs.

I use the end pieces of bread, dried as described above, for crostini and croutons.

I grind up gluten-free Rice Krispies in the food processor. I'm soy free too, so the Rice Chex don't work for me, but I'll bet they'd work well too?

Gluten free Rice Chex does not have soy in it....at least not on the west coast where I live...I'm also soy intolerant.

I grind up gluten-free crackers for meatloaf. For chicken breading, I use gluten-free bisquick. For fish, I use Zanteranes. (Sp?)

Kinnikinnick "panko" crumbs are a far cry from authentic panko crumbs which are more like large jagged shards. No matter - they certainly do have their place. It just sort of bugs me that they call them "panko". :angry:

You can also use cornbread cubes.

Like a lot of other "store-bought" stuff, I never used Panko pre-gluten free, so I don't know the difference. If you've never had the good stuff, the substitute is fine.

i made panko by accident - i use the heels of (udi's and rudi's) bread to make crumbs - i usually dry them out really well in the oven before i put them in the processor. this time i got in a hurry and tried to grind them while they were still really soft and they were clumping up so i shook the grinder so they would unclump and they resembled panko so i baked them for 5 minutes and they came out GREAT. very happy with this because i used to used panko alot. i have found packaged glutino crumbs, but they were wierd. like corn-y wierd.

lolz - the first bread i bought when i was dx'd was ener-g. i was ready to jump off the ledge... icky...

    • The first two tests (at least in the US and most of the EU) have been replaced by the DGP tests (at the bottom) of GFinDC's list of celiac tests.  Not all celiacs test positive to the common Screening TTG.   The TTg is good and catches most and it was cheaper to run the best one (it is all about the money), but researchers realized they were not catching all celiacs.  Here is a link to the University of Chicago's celiac website.  When I was diagnosed three years ago, this site recommended just the TTg (as did the American GI Association).  Now they have expanded the list of celiac tests.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Luckily, my GI must have just attended a GI conference and he ordered the complete panel for me.  ($400). It paid off.  Only my DGP IGA was positive and the rest of the blood panel (including the popular TTG test) was negative.  My biopsies revealed some severe intestinal damage.  My new health provider only allows PCP/GP doctors to only order the TTG.  So, if I want the follow-up testing to see if I have improved or had a gluten exposure, I must go to my New GI.  Yep, it is all about the money!   Keep eating gluten and make sure your  GI takes four to six samples during the endoscopy.  Maintain copies of all your results.   Your symptoms?  Yes, there are over 300 celiac disease symptoms.  celiac disease does not just affect the gut, but mis-informed and those who do not keep up with the latest in medical, do not seem to know that!   Do not give up!  
    • It's great to hear from you, Nightsky.  Glad to also hear of your steady progress.  Living gluten free is definitely a learning process, and even the baby steps are times to celebrate.  Wish you all the luck in the world as you continue to heal for the glutenization.  
    • Hi Nicky, When you first go gluten-free your symptoms often do change.  Feeling better or worse is possible.  The healing process is a major change in our gut and that means a big change in the gut flora is likely,  which can cause symptoms by itself.  Additionally the immune system doesn't stop making antibodies on a dime.  the immune system keeps working  to defeat the gluten invaders until it is darn good and ready to take a break. You really shouldn't start the gluten-free diet until all testing is completed.  That includes a full celiac disease panel and an endoscopy with biopsy samples.  It's much easier to complete testing while still a gluten eater than it is to stop gluten and go  back on it for testing later.
    • Hi Kircket, Welcome to the forum! Yes, he could be wrong.  Not everyone passes the blood tests.  And they are just one part of the diagnostic process anyway, although an important one.   Did you have the complete celiac antibodies panel? Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgA
      Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgG
      Anti-Endomysial (EMA) IgA
      Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG
      Total Serum IgA If you didn't have the full celiac disease antibodies test panel, I'd insist on getting it done.  There have been numerous people on the forum who tested positive on one antibody but not on others.
    • Three years ago I lost about 40kgs (Aussie lol) by better diet & exercise. All was going great til I stopped losing. I upped my exercise but bizarrely started gaining weight. One night a week of not being able to sleep soon became two, then virtually every night with either 1-2hrs tops or none at all. These weird symptoms started about two years ago, becoming worse in say, the last 9mnths. Then I started to get diarrhea. Occasionally then weirdly 2-3 days with multiple occurences then a day or two with nothing, then back to loose & offensive. My GP ran tests, including the TTga (hope that's  right) antibody blood test. Negative so he tells me that's not it. After 9mnths of this he shrugs and says, "I don't know what it is I've run out of ideas what ideas do you have?" Finally refers me to a gastrointerogist.  Private, of course and can't really afford it but we (my fiance and I) go. Stools and blood samples are ordered, basically bye, see you in a month. I have looked my symptoms up and they seem to point to Celiac. Today we went back. I have been having bloated stomach, sore back and limbs,  lovely burps, constant urination and crushing anxiety attacks folowed by depression (which I have never had before in my life). Admitted over the last weekend I didn't sleep for two and a half days and found myself hallucinating and crying to just be able to sleep. Mr fancy pants gastrointerogist says," Hey great news, the stools samples rule out parasites and Crohns!" I tell him how excrutiating the last month has been to which he replies, "It's not Celiac disease, (points at negative blood test results). Celiac doesnt present with diarrhea, anxiety and frquent urination all together." I also had a fecal occult blood test which showed positive & notes say are maybe due to a lower gi bleed, and a ct scan that says shows some damage which, in their words, could be due to a condition such as Celiac disease. He has booked me for a double scope as the next step, has a few ideas what it could be (won't tell me because he doesn't want me to be 'anxious'). Told me to consider that all these symptoms could be me just worrying and being anxious. Told him when this started I was not worried about anything, shrugged and said, It could stil have happened, hey, sometimes we never find out what causes it and your just stuck with diarrhea forever." Then as I was leaving he slapped me on the back and said, "Don't worry so much, see you soon." I need to have the scopes done but is it me or are the things I was told today not true?  I would honestly love it not to be Celiac disease but could he be wrong?
