Gluten Free Bisquick
0

8 posts in this topic

I went and bought some today because I was craving biscuits. I was so excited when I made them, they came out looking beautiful!!!!

Of course, like all gluten-free foods, when I picked one up, it crumbled in my hand, and when I put it in my mouth it immediatley dissolved and felt and tasted like paste :(

Anyone know any tricks to make it better?

I take it you haven't been gluten free for long?

There are some videos you can find on youtube. There is one for a replacement for the redlobster chedder bisciuts.

I will say it can be a bit tempermental. I normally use it for pancakes (those come out pretty good). I have used it for a pizza crust once. It crumbled but didn't taste like paste. It does not like overmixing at all.

Another idea is to season it.

lol Thanks, and no, I had been gluten-free off an on for the last 4 months, but finally buckled down and I have been totally gluten-free for about 3 weeks now. I dont really rely on products like this, but sometimes I just really crave it. Sigh. I do really like Udis white bread and double chocolate muffins, so at least I have something. I need to learn how to bake my own things. My neice is gluten-free and bakes a lot but she is good at it and loves to experiment. Not me, I am really impatient. lol

Ah well, another idea would be to brush it with a bit of butter for flavoring. THe thing with these mixes is that sometimes their good and sometimes you wonder what they were thinking.

About that pizza crust i made, it was... okay... but somewhat dry. Not what i was hoping for. :)

If you can do dairy and egg, I would suggest you try the Chebe mixes, and make those little Brazilian cheese biscuits. I will put just a little bit of other savory gluten free flour in the batch, (almond, buckwheat, amaranth types of higher protein flours) along with a bit of extra oil and either egg or yogurt, and this makes it even better.

The problem with gluten-free bisquick is it's rice, and rice is crumbly.

Thanks! I have been hearing a lot about Almond flour, I havent seen it at my stores so I wonder where to find it? Whole Foods. maybe?

Only things I make with the gluten-free bisquick is the sausage balls and the spinach balls. Made the gluten-free version of the sausage balls and no one in the family noticed a difference. Had to tweet the recipe a bit because they came out much drier than the original if I followed the directions to a T (I will use 3/4 cup bisquick per pound of sausage instead of a full cup). Spinach balls are delicious! Got the recipe off their website - I use Monterrey Jack cheese instead of Mozzerella (or however you spell that dumb word :) ) bc I like the taste better. One of these days, I want to make those garlic cheddar biscuits...but not until I tolerate carbs better.

I have made the pizza recipe added bacon bits(hormel or Oscar meyer), cheese and fresh chopped chives. I bake it in an 8x8 pan. My kids (gluten eaters)love it. Bake as instructed..cool and cut into squares.

    • Thanks Stephanie & Gemini for the info. that the 4 of 5 doesn't apply to children. I wasn't aware of that until now. 
    • I think the posters above have given you very good information and I will throw in my 2 cents worth.  I am surprised that they did not test her DGP IgA also.  I am sure that would have been positive.  They switched off with antibody classes and usually they do both tests for both antibodies.  IgA is more specific to Celiac but the IgG is also useful.  The testing shows your daughter is producing antibodies to the gluten in her diet. (DGP IGG). THe tTg shows positive for some damage or inflammation. You know........your daughter is only 4.  She hasn't been on the planet or eating gluten that long. It can take years for enough damage to occur for it to be able to be found on biopsy.  I would say it is highly likely that this is Celiac, especially with her symptoms. But because the damage hasn't graduated to bad enough yet, they won't diagnose her. I think you need to do what others have said and get all copies of testing and find someone else who will take a look and give a diagnosis, especially if they have you do a dietary trial and her symptoms go away.  That might be the only recourse if you want faster proof. I know I would want faster.  I would not really be happy if I thought I had to keep feeding her something that was making her sick.  If you keep her on gluten long enough, the diarrhea will probably show up. BTW.........the criteria mentioned regarding diagnosis does not apply to kids.  I know it's silly and stupid but most leading Celiac specialists do not go by this criteria for kids.......adults only.  Keep that in mind because it might come up.  You could recognize it but they might not. Have you considered gene testing, to help bolster a diagnosis? As far as false positives go, it's the other way around. False negatives happen more frequently than many people think.  It's a recurring theme here.  With her symptoms, which is what I had, a bloated belly and tummy aches are telling.  Have they tested her for lactose intolerance?  That can cause similar symptoms, although it sure won't raise those 2 blood tests.  Keep looking for Celiac because there are many red flags here.
    • This 4 out of 5 criteria does not apply to children. I was never given a reason why, but it isn't.     That said, you may try to get a second opinion from another GI who may be willing to give her a firm dx.  We were in your boat 6 years ago and while I'm sure I'll get slammed for it, I wish we had kept gluten in our kiddos diet till he scoped positive for a variety of reasons.  Again, even family is different and you have to find what is best for you!
    • Mnoosh, I had swollen lymph nodes prior to celiac dx and for a while after going gluten free. My neck as well as groin. The groin ones were the worst. Guess what? All gone! It's hard to recall a time line & consider that everyone is different but I think mine completely resolved within a year.  You've been given great information. Just breathe and then again, breathe. You're going to be fine. 
    • It is the only thing you have eaten, so it can't be anything else?  I eat it with no issues so I am not sure how you can be certain that is the problem.  All I am saying is that its sort of "your word against mine and the company's word".
