    Red Lobster Style Cheddar Bay Biscuits (Gluten-Free)


    Scott Adams

    This recipe comes to us from Fiddle-Faddle in the Gluten-Free Forum. This is an adaptation of Robyn Ryberg's biscuits, found here on celiac.com.

    Ingredients:
    1/3 cup shortening
    ½ cup potato starch
    ¾ cup cornstarch
    1 ¾ teaspoon xanthan gum
    1 tablespoon baking powder
    ¼ teaspoon baking soda
    1 tablespoon sugar
    ¾ cup milk
    ½ teaspoon salt
    ½ cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
    ¼ cup butter, softened (optional--makes a very fattening biscuit!)
    **********************************
    Another ¼ cup butter, melted, mixed with ¼ - ½ teaspoon garlic powder

    Directions:
    Preheat oven to 375F. In medium bowl, blend all ingredients except for last two. Mix very well to remove any lumps. Dough will be quite soft and a bit sticky. Roll or pat our dough on a lightly floured (cornstarch) surface. Dough should be about ½ inch thick. Cut out biscuits with 2 ½ inch cookie cutters. An inverted glass will also do the job. Place biscuits on lightly-greased baking sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until lightly browned. As soon as they come out of the oven, brush with melted butter/garlic combination.

    Makes 6-8 large biscuits.

    In the recipe instructions, when do you add in the last two ingredients? After mixing everything else? Clarify this and it would be an awesome recipe!

    I made these last week and they were delicious. Then we went Red Lobster and I tried a bite of theirs and I decided I like the gluten free biscuits better. I also modified and used garbanzo flour, as I am trying to limit corn intake.

    I haven't tried this recipe yet (I am going to Red Lobster today though, and plan on making them to take with me, though!), but I thought I'd share the "secret" to making them taste more like the real thing. after they come out of the oven, ever so lightly sprinkle the tops with LEMON JUICE! Before my family went gluten-free, we were kind of red lobster aficionados, and I made my glutenous version at home, and the lemon juice adds that last step that most copy-cat recipes leave out. Try it, you won't be disappointed.

    Oh my goodness! Praise God for this recipe. I was so upset tonight because we were going to Red Lobster and I knew I couldn't have their biscuits. I made these in under 20 minutes and they are FANTASTIC. I am bringing them with me to Red lobster so I won't feel so left out. THANK YOU!!!!!!

    I made these a couple of weeks ago and they didn't even last 2 hours in our house! I am gluten-free but my husband and kids are not and they even LOVED them!! I did not roll them out, I dropped spoon fulls onto the cookie tray and they turned out perfect. The next time I make them I will be making a double batch!

    According to the manager at the Red Lobster we went to, their biscuits ARE gluten-free, but they wouldn't tell me what they use instead of flour. They said they use a biscuit mix, cheese and butter to make theirs and if it says it's gluten-free, then it is gluten-free. I tempted fate and tried them and have not had a reaction yet, but that was just last night.

    FYI- I just replied about Red Lobster's menu saying the cheddar biscuits were gluten-free. The menu they gave me said it was (I checked multiple times and had my husband check too) but the gluten-free menu online says they are not gluten-free. Maybe they are trying a different recipe at that particular location.

    Thank you all for your comments I love the biscuits from red lobster but can't eat them whenever we go there. Now I will bake me some and bring with me when we go again.

    Please tell me what the ¼ measurement means.  Since the Â appears throughout this recipe I guess it means approximately, but it appears so much it seems to be a lot of guesswork to get it right.  This ~ means approximately in my language/math training.  I have no reference to understand the Â symbol.

    In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease. In 1998 I founded The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore!, and I am the co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.

    Serving Size: 12
    1 cup sorghum flour
    ¾ cup gluten-free Flour Blend
    ¼ cup Sweet Rice Flour
    1 teaspoon xanthan gum
    2 teaspoons sugar
    3 teaspoons baking powder
    ½ teaspoon cream of tartar
    ¼ teaspoon salt
    ½ cup shortening -- cubed
    1 egg
    ½ cup milk
    Crack egg into large measuring cup. Add milk to make 2/3 cup of liquid. Lightly beat together. Set aside. Sift all dry ingredients. Place in food processor. Pulse in cubed shortening. Add milk/egg mixture. Pulse until dough is formed. I usually wrap dough in plastic wrap and chill 1 hour or overnight, but you could roll or pat it out right away and use a biscuit cutter to cut biscuits. Place on baking sheet and bake at 450 degrees for 10 min. I usually brush melted butter on them the last couple of minutes. This helps them to brown a little bit better.

    This recipe comes to us from the Denver Metro Chapter of CSA/USAs High Altitude Gluten-Free Cookbook.
    gluten-free All Purpose Flour mixture:
    4 cup brown rice flour
    1 ½ cup Sweet rice flour (at Asian markets)
    1 cup tapioca starch flour
    1 cup Rice polish (Ener-g food at health food stores)

    Whisk all ingredients together. Make large batches and store in Ziploc bags in freezer.
    Sandwich Buns/Pizza Shells/Cinnamon Rolls
    2 teaspoon sugar
    1 ¾ c. lukewarm water
    3 large eggs
    ¼ c. butter or margarine (not low fat substitute)
    1 ¼ c. water (yes, an other l ¼c of water)
    1 tsp. gluten-free vinegar (I use Heinz)
    1/3 c. sugar, less the 2 tsp. above
    1 ½ teaspoon salt
    2/3 cup nonfat dry milk
    2 cups rice flour (can be white or brown or ½ and ½)
    2 cups tapioca flour
    3 ½ teaspoon xanthan gum
    2 package active dry yeast (1 ½T)
    Dissolve the 2 teaspoon sugar in the 1 ¾c. lukewarm water. Sprinkle yeast on the top and let sit 10 min. until bubbly. Melt butter. Add 1 ¼c. cool water and vinegar. Sift together dry ingredients. Stir the yeast mixture and the water/butter/vinegar mixture into the dry ingredients, then add eggs and beat 2 min. with mixer on high speed.
    SANDWICH BUNS The recipe says 12-14) Place English muffin rings, 4 aluminum tins, tuna cans, etc. on a baking sheet and coat inside well with a nonstick spray. Fill half of them.
    PIZZA SHELLS(makes 2 14 shells) Place mound of dough on greased cookie sheet or pizza pan. Sprinkle with tapioca flour, cover fingertips with flour, and gently par the dough out to desired size using the flat of your hand.
    CINNAMON ROLLS: Proceed as for buns, but put only a small amount of dough in ring, top mixture of brown sugar, cinnamon, nuts and currants or raisins (0r ½ c. sugar and 2 teaspoon cinnamon) repeat layers.
    Allow dough to rise double in a warm place. Can take as long as 1 ½ hr.
    Bake buns or rolls at 350F for 30 min. or until lightly browned and a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool on a rack. Swirl cinnamon rolls with icing if desired. Cut the buns in 2 . Seal in zip bags and freeze.
    Bake unfilled pizza shells at 400 8 min. just until they begin to brown. Seal surface lightly with olive oil, fill with topping, bake 10 min. additional. Or freeze baked shells for future use, fill unthawed shells with desired topping, bake at 400F for 10-12 min.

    This recipe comes to us from Cindy. Ingredients:
    ½ cup brown rice flour
    ½ cup white rice flour
    ½ cup sweet rice flour
    ½ cup amaranth flour
    1 teaspoon salt
    2 teaspoons xanthan gum
    1 tablespoon baking powder
    1 teaspoon sugar (optional - amaranth flour is sweet)
    1 can (13.5 oz) cold and solidified coconut milk - not low fat.
    Directions:
    Preheat the oven to 450F degrees.
    Put all the dry ingredients in the bowl of a food processor run until all the dry ingredients are mixed. Open the food processor and add the coconut milk. Run the food processor just long enough to mix thoroughly. You might have to open it once to scrape down the sides. The dough should be airy. Drop by tablespoon full onto cookie sheet. Bake for 12 minutes. Makes about 18 small biscuits.
    I started making this in the winter and the coconut milk is always solid, with a little clear liquid in the bottom of the can. Im not sure how this would work with coconut milk that is liquid. If I was trying it with warmer, liquid coconut milk, I would add the coconut milk gradually through the feed tube while running the food processor.
    You could try other flour types, but I think the sweet rice flour makes a big difference in the consistency.
    These biscuits are really good heated up in a toaster oven.

    I miss biscuits more thananything. Before going gluten-free, I loved to eat biscuits andgravy, strawberry shortcake (on homemade biscuits) and warm biscuitswith honey! There is nothing that compares with the satisfaction ofeating a warm homemade biscuit. Which is why the following recipe isso exciting. This is a recipe that can be manipulated to cater tospecific dietary restrictions-even mine! There are dairy-free,soy-free and egg-free options included. It might take a couple triesfinding the right combination for you, so spend a day making somedelicious gluten-free home-style biscuits.
    Home-style Drop Biscuits(Gluten-Free)
    Servings: 16 largebiscuits
    Ingredients:
    1 ½ cup brown rice flour 2 cup corn starch orpotato starch or tapioca starch ½ cup soy flour orsorghum flour 2 teaspoons baking powder 1 ¾ teaspoons salt 1½ teaspoons teaspoons baking soda 2 teaspoons xanthan gum 1 stick of butter or gluten-free butter substitute(chilled in the freezer) 1 ¼ cup soy milk  1 ¼ cup water 1 tablespoon cider vinegar 1 egg, beaten (or the equivalent amount ofyour favorite egg replacement) To Make:
    *Note: 1. If you’re not vegan or dairy free, feelfree to use 1 c. buttermilk in place of the soy milk and vinegar. Ifyou’re allergic to soy, try using your usual milk substitute andkeep the vinegar in the recipe.
    Also reduce the liquid if necessary, you don't want the batter to be too runny.

    Preheat your oven to 350F degrees. In a large mixing bowl thoroughly combine the flour (a fork works well for this), bakingpowder, salt, baking soda, and xanthan gum. For an easiertime working with the butter, grate the butter into the flour usingthe small holed side of a box grater. Mix the butter into the flourso that there are no large balls of grated butter. Add the soy milk, water, vinegar and beaten egg to the flourand stir until the dry and liquid ingredients are combined. Using a large spoon, drop the dough onto agreased pan to make 16 biscuits.
    Cook at 350F degrees for 15 minutesor until golden brown.

    Celiac.com 06/23/2018 - If you’re looking for a great gluten-free Mexican-style favorite that is sure to be a big hit at dinner or at your next potluck, try these green chili enchiladas with roasted cauliflower. The recipe calls for chicken, but they are just as delicious when made vegetarian using just the roasted cauliflower. Either way, these enchiladas will disappear fast. Roasted cauliflower gives these green chili chicken enchiladas a deep, smokey flavor that diners are sure to love.
    Ingredients:
    2 cans gluten-free green chili enchilada sauce (I use Hatch brand) 1 small head cauliflower, roasted and chopped 6 ounces chicken meat, browned ½ cup cotija cheese, crumbled ½ cup queso fresco, diced 1 medium onion, diced ⅓ cup green onions, minced ¼ cup radishes, sliced 1 tablespoon cooking oil 1 cup chopped cabbage, for serving ½ cup sliced cherry or grape tomatoes, for serving ¼ cup cilantro, chopped 1 dozen fresh corn tortillas  ⅔ cup oil, for softening tortillas 1 large avocado, cut into small chunks Note: For a tasty vegetarian version, just omit the chicken, double the roasted cauliflower, and prepare according to directions.
    Directions:
    Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a cast iron or ovenproof pan until hot.
    Add chicken and brown lightly on both sides. 
    Remove chicken to paper towels to cool.
     
    Cut cauliflower into small pieces and place in the oiled pan.
    Roast in oven at 350F until browned on both sides.
    Remove from the oven when tender. 
    Allow roasted cauliflower to cool.
    Chop cauliflower, or break into small pieces and set aside.
    Chop cooled chicken and set aside.
    Heat 1 inch of cooking oil in a small frying pan.
    When oil is hot, use a spatula to submerge a tortilla in the oil and leave only long enough to soften, about 10 seconds or so. 
    Remove soft tortilla to a paper towel and repeat with remaining tortillas.
    Pour enough enchilada sauce to coat the bottom of a large casserole pan.
    Dunk a tortilla into the sauce and cover both sides. Add more sauce as needed.
    Fill each tortilla with bits of chicken, cauliflower, onion, and queso fresco, and roll into shape.
    When pan is full of rolled enchiladas, top with remaining sauce.
    Cook at 350F until sauce bubbles.
    Remove and top with fresh cotija cheese and scallions.
    Serve with rice, beans, and cabbage, and garnish with avocado, cilantro, and sliced grape tomatoes.

    Celiac.com 06/22/2018 - The rise of food allergies means that many people are avoiding gluten in recent times. In fact, the number of Americans who have stopped eating gluten has tripled in eight years between 2009 and 2017.
    Whatever your rationale for avoiding gluten, whether its celiac disease, a sensitivity to the protein, or any other reason, it can be really hard to find suitable places to eat out. When you’re on holiday in a new and unknown environment, this can be near impossible. As awareness of celiac disease grows around the world, however, more and more cities are opening their doors to gluten-free lifestyles, none more so than the 10 locations on the list below.
    Perhaps unsurprisingly, the U.S is a hotbed of gluten-free options, with four cities making the top 10, as well as the Hawaiian island of Maui. Chicago, in particular, is a real haven of gluten-free fare, with 240 coeliac-safe eateries throughout this huge city. The super hip city of Portland also ranks highly on this list, with the capital of counterculture rich in gluten-free cuisine, with San Francisco and Denver also included. Outside of the states, several prominent European capitals also rank very highly on the list, including Prague, the picturesque and historic capital of the Czech Republic, which boasts the best-reviewed restaurants on this list.
    The Irish capital of Dublin, meanwhile, has the most gluten-free establishments, with a huge 330 to choose from, while Amsterdam and Barcelona also feature prominently thanks to their variety of top-notch gluten-free fodder.
    Finally, a special mention must go to Auckland, the sole representative of Australasia in this list, with the largest city in New Zealand rounding out the top 10 thanks to its 180 coeliacsafe eateries.
    The full top ten gluten-free cities are shown in the graphic below:

    Celiac.com 06/21/2018 - Would you buy a house advertised as ‘gluten-free’? Yes, there really is such a house for sale. 
    It seems a Phoenix realtor Mike D’Elena is hoping that his trendy claim will catch the eye of a buyer hungry to avoid gluten, or, at least one with a sense of humor. D’Elena said he crafted the ads as a way to “be funny and to draw attention.” The idea, D’Elena said, is to “make it memorable.” 
    Though D’Elena’s marketing seeks to capitalizes on the gluten-free trend, he knows Celiac disease is a serious health issue for some people. “[W]e’re not here to offend anybody….this is just something we're just trying to do to draw attention and do what's best for our clients," he said. 
    Still, the signs seem to be working. D'elena had fielded six offers within a few days of listing the west Phoenix home.
    "Buying can sometimes be the most stressful thing you do in your entire life so why not have some fun with it," he said. 
    What do you think? Clever? Funny?

    Celiac.com 06/20/2018 - Currently, the only way to manage celiac disease is to eliminate gluten from the diet. That could be set to change as clinical trials begin in Australia for a new vaccine that aims to switch off the immune response to gluten. 
    The trials are set to begin at Australia’s University of the Sunshine Coast Clinical Trials Centre. The vaccine is designed to allow people with celiac disease to consume gluten with no adverse effects. A successful vaccine could be the beginning of the end for the gluten-free diet as the only currently viable treatment for celiac disease. That could be a massive breakthrough for people with celiac disease.
    USC’s Clinical Trials Centre Director Lucas Litewka said trial participants would receive an injection of the vaccine twice a week for seven weeks. The trials will be conducted alongside gastroenterologist Dr. James Daveson, who called the vaccine “a very exciting potential new therapy that has been undergoing clinical trials for several years now.”
    Dr. Daveson said the investigational vaccine might potentially restore gluten tolerance to people with celiac disease.The trial is open to adults between the ages of 18 and 70 who have clinically diagnosed celiac disease, and have followed a strict gluten-free diet for at least 12 months. Anyone interested in participating can go to www.joinourtrials.com.
