Diagnosed For 2 Months. Miss Sandwiches. Help?

Recommended Posts

Dear Karen,

I went to that site, and was amazed! This is great! A versatile mix is especially good. The price is actually pretty low, too! Being on a tight budget, this could be doable! Thank you so much!

Sincerely,

NoGluGirl

NGG, if you are only making it for yourself, try what my sister does. She makes half a package at a time and it comes out fine. It's one of the most forgiving mixes I've used. One of these days I'll get around to trying the awesome calzones recipe on their site. http://www.chebe.com/calzones.htm

Good luck!

Dear Karen,

Those sound great! I would love to do paninis as well. I wonder if I could use my Foreman grill for that? They are basically just grilled sandwiches. I was surprised at these being priced so low! I have got to try Chebe! Thanks again for reminding me about it!

NGG, I've used Chebe to make burger buns that hold together through the whole burger. I would imagine paninis would be no problem.

I split a batch into fourths and use my tortilla press to make mini pizza crusts that I can freeze and use like a boboli crust for pizza when I want. I'm still trying to perfect a black bean/garlic pizza crust Chebe recipe to reproduce the best pizza crust I've ever tasted in my gluten days. So far, the attempts have been cut into wedges for dips and they disappear like the wind. One co-worker told me she hopes it takes me awhile to perfect it because she likes the crunchy/chewy texture of the wedges. :-)

Makes great breakfast pastries too.

Dear Karen,

These are great ideas! I have been collaborating with someone else on the forum about a cookbook. He also thinks I would be a good cooking show host. So, "Tastebud Adventures With NoGluGirl" is what is going to be called. My father could do the camera work. RiceGuy and I decided YouTube would be the best place to put it.

I miss my breakfast pastries, I must say! Doughnuts always made me sick. Now I know why. Before I was diagnosed, I had no idea what is was. I agree that texture is very important. The Chebe is going to help a lot for the shortcuts of my book I want to write on gluten-free entertaining!

Sincerely,

NoGluGirl

P.S. I just made my own recipe of gluten-free Tollhouse Cookies that are to die-for (not from)!

NGG - I use a cheap version of the Foreman grill for my Panini sandwiches. They still taste great and have those little lines in them. Definitely not worth buying a special panini grill for.

Dear lonewolf,

I have a Foreman grill already! I am good there! Once, when I went to Tennessee, there was this delicious sandwich.

I still remember it! I would love to recreate it! It was grilled chicken, with some red hot cayenne pepper, sliced tomato, and

cheese.

Sincerely,

Gluten Free Pantry's French Bread mix is excellent, but if you don't want to bake, I also recommend Glutino's Cornbread -- it's not like southern cornbread, but sliced for sandwiches. Another product of theirs I eat frequently is their bagels, especially the sesame, which are great for egg sandwiches, cream cheese, BLTs, ham and cheese (probably everything except PB&J, though). You can get these in some health food stores but easily online at glutino.com. Freeze them and defrost in a microwave, then toast. They are not cheap, though, so I have learned to not have them all the time, but only when I really start craving a sandwich fix.

I have also tried the cornbread and really liked it. I've only been able to find it at one place though. It does not taste like what most people think of when they think "cornbread." :)

I've complained about bread since I was a kid, so I don't really miss it. But when I do have a hankering for a sandwich I used Bob's Red Mill -- it was available at the local Weis until a few months ago when it was discontinued :( . I'm going to have to look around for it ot find time to drive out to the Whole Foods in Baltimore. Now what I really miss is the pasta (though I do get Tinkyada products on occasion) and pizza.

Dear Ed,

Wal-Mart has DeBoles pasta. We only get the Penne. It is nice to have on hand! I was pleasantly surprised when it did not taste like icky Play-Doh. That was really disgusting! What is really good is, get some of it with some Great Value Italian Garden Vegetables Pasta Sauce, then have some sausage (Jimmy Dean Fresh Taste Fast) cooked and ready, and cut up. Take them, mix it together, then top with Kraft Shredded Mozzerella, and bake at 350 degrees until the cheese is just melted and gooey! (10 to 15 minutes!) You are talking heaven!

NoGluGirl,

Neither of the Wal-Marts in my area carries gluten free food, alas! I did see DeBoles rice and corn spaghetti pasta at the local grocery stores, however. I am hesitant to try it because I heard it doesn't hold up. Maybe I should anyway, just in case I'm wrong. That recipe is interesting though. Maybe I should find some sort of gluten-free pasta and try it.

There is a rumor that the Wal-Mart in Hampstead is slated to become a superstore. I hope it does. Then I'll be getting some of the goodies everyone else is.

Dear Ed,

I am so shocked that your Wal-Mart does not carry DeBoles! However, ours is a supercenter. Still, if they carry the Great Value Brand, you would think that they would be marked gluten-free on the items that are safe. It is usually by the copyright. That will make it easier for you!

I was pleasantly surprised by the DeBoles. I expected it to get gross on me, like all of the other gluten-free pastas. For spaghetti, Chinese rice noodles are perfect! If you have an oriental market nearby or if you go to a larger city close to your town, you can get rice flour, sweet rice flour, potato or sweet potato starch, and rice noodles much of the time for less than you would have to pay elsewhere. The merchants are normally very good about assisting you if the labels are written in Chinese or Japanese.

Sincerely,

NoGluGirl
