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.

    • Karen, the iodine test was a test for DH used in the 'olden' days. Iodine would be swabbed onto a spot and then it would be covered with a bandage. If someone had DH the iodined area would break out in lesions. I don't know how but we do know iodine can activate the antibodies. That is why some of us with DH have to avoid iodine in foods until the antibodies have cleared the dermis. OP, if you haven't been tested for celiac you should be and if you have active lesions a biopsy done next to a lesion by a DH knowledgable dermatologist may help in diagnosis.
    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
