    Celiac.com 07/22/2014 - For years, I have dreamed about how nice it would be to have a tasty breakfast sandwich again that was on a gluten-Free English muffin, I really have missed those after 15 years. I found Udi’s Gluten-Free English Muffins in my local store recently! Before, I have just used gluten-free toasted bread to replace.

    To make the Gluten-Free Breakfast Sandwich:

    Ingredients:

    • Free Range Egg
    • Gluten-Free Canadian Bacon, Gluten Free Ham or Bacon
    • Cheese
    • Gluten Free Mayonnaise
    • Udi’s Gluten-Free English Muffins
    • Hot Sauce, optional

    Directions:

    1. Toast your gluten-free English muffin halves or gluten-free bread of choice while heating pan to cook your egg.
    2. Cook your free range egg to your taste. I fried my egg on both sides until yolk was firm, with a bit of melted butter.
    3. Heat the gluten-free Canadian bacon or your selected gluten-free meat thoroughly, in same pan cooked the free range egg in. Turn off heat.
    4. Construct Sandwich: Spread gluten-free Mayonnaise on one side of each piece of toasted gluten-free English muffin or bread. Put a slice of cheese on one half of prepared English muffin or bread.
    5. Place the heated egg and meat on top of the cheese. I put a dash of hot sauce on top of my egg and meat, optional. Put the other half of gluten-free English muffin or bread on top. *I put the sandwich into the pan, cover and heat on low just until cheese melts. Enjoy warm!

    Concerning "Celiac, the Mysterious and the Medical Need for Gluten Free Diet". I was shocked that you would publish these mistaken facts by writer Melissa Reed.

    She writes that, "There are no tests or strict criteria to diagnose gluten sensitivity."

     

    There are several labs which have been diagnosing gluten sensitivity for many years now! My self diagnosis for Gluten-intolerance was in 2002, and was verified by EnteroLab.com. Dr. Ron Hogan has published "An Interview with Dr. Kenneth Fine of EnteroLab.com

    and the Intestinal Health Institute." Celiac.com- 10-9-13.

    As for her warning about avoiding a gluten-free diet before seeing your doctor, it has been

    suggested by several past Celiac-researchers that testing may not be necessary at all if a

    gluten-free diet is successful in eliminating troubling side-effects.

    Please note that Dr. Fine's methods of testing for this--stool testing for antibodies, are not accepted yet by the wider scientific/medical community.
