Bread Crumbs

Recommended Posts

Ok, I'm new to this. My husband was just diagnosed a month ago. here's the problem. I am italian and like breading things.. at least with flavor. we bought some gluten free bread crumbs, and if you ask me they are way boring. Is there anyway I can add flavor? Garlic, italian seasoning, parsley, etc? Any ideas, suggestions? Or are spices gluten filled as well? If so, what spices should I stay away from??

Help!

I use McCormick brand spices. They will clearly list gluten on the label if there is any. I have never had a problem with them. I generally add things like italian seasoning and garlic to my italian foods. I'm not italian though, so I may be way off.

No, you're right on. Basically, italian food is one of a handful of spices! LOL.. I haven't read anything about spices being bad but wasn't sure. as long as the spices are gluten free I can bread stuff right? I make cutlets, turkey or chicken, I think the only other thing I use is eggs and those are ok right? Ugh, I know I will get this eventually! Thank you

Eggs are fine. Some spices are not, so stick with a trusted brand. Some supposedly use wheat flour as an anti-caking or anti-stick agent. McCormick doesn't.

Well, as you buy several different kinds of gluten-free bread, looking for one that appeals to your husband... You will have LOTS of material for making bread crumbs!! :P

I think you can continue to use a lot of your regular ways of cooking, and spicing things, just read ingredients carefully, to find brands that are gluten-free. I use a lot of fresh garlic, onion, red and green peppers, red wine vinegar, gluten-free worchestershire, fresh ground black pepper, and dried herbs, just as I did before I started eating gluten-free.

I would stay away from "seasoning salt" type mixes, that have starches and flavor enhancers.

Have fun!

Make the Lorka150 bread (find the thread here on the most wonderful bread ever made)....THEN, after it's aged a couple days....toast it dry and make your own crumbs! It is the closest thing to wheat bread I have tasted...it's so good.

Add garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper and italian seasoning and I guarantee it will be better than any bread crumbs you could buy! SO GOOD!!!!

Make sure the spices/seasoning are gluten free. McCormick is one, but there are others too. For herbs (like the Italian seasoning) there is no need for an anticaking agent, so that you can pick however. But the dried ones need to check for sure.

MMMMM....

Which brand of Worcestershire is gluten-free? Do the cheap brands have gluten?

P.S. I put gluten-free bread in the processer with a couple of cloves of garlic and a wedge of onion and a couple of sprigs of parsley and puree it all and freeze in a zip lock bag. other seasons, oregano, etc., can be added later.

Lea & Perrins is gluten free. (If you live in the US. I believe it is not in Canada).

For bread crumbs, I generally make my own taking any gluten-free bread, let it get hard, crumble it up in the food processor and then just add some salt, garlic, oregano and parsley. I did however just buy the Gillian's Italian seasoned breadcrumbs the other day and used them Sunday night to make meatballs and they were really good. The Italian seasoned ones are harder to find than the plain ones, but you can still jazz up the plain ones.

I use "The Wizard's" Organic Wheat-free Vegan Worchestershire sauce (made by Edward and Sons). Their site says it's gluten-free.
