Eating Out For Breakfast

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I am slowly making progress with eating out on occasion. My biggest issue is speaking up, but I'm working on it!

So what do you all do when faced with eating out for breakfast? How do you order? I really miss Sunday mroning breakfast with my family at the local dive... Okay, well I suppose a "dive" is not an ideal palce to ask for gluten free, lol, but seriously, if I'm at a decent place, how do I instruct them? Any feedback would be great.

Thanks!

We always ask for an omlette (dd likes just cheese) in a clean pan, not put on the grill. I always specify the allergy, explain as easily as I can to make them understand and scare them-just a little on how sick she gets. We always ask for a side of fruit instead of the other sides. I don't trust the hashbrowns anywhere. If we're trying a new place, I will call ahead to see if they can accomidate us. We have found a few places nearby that have been really good to us. I always thank them profusely (sp?) and tip really well. I know each time we've eaten at Elmers, she's gotten sick, so that's out. I think it's just trial and error. I always try to talk with a manager though, that seems to help.

I order Egg-Beaters as they are usually cooked seperately from the regular breakfast foods (More likely to get them cooked in a clean pan versus regular eggs). Skip the bacon / sausage / hash browns and opt for the fruit. Not much for choices but it beats the alternative of getting sick.

Best of Luck

I always ask for fried eggs, lol. That way I can SEE what's in them and I figure they need a fairly clean grill for that. I also ask if it's possible that they use oil instead of butter (because of my casein issues). I ask for fresh fruit instead of any breads or potatoes, etc. I basically say that I can't have gluten or dairy, but I don't go into much more than that usually. Now, I will also say that I don't have violent reactions to gluten, if I did I would probably be much more diligent, and I also don't have confirmed celiac...just intolerance.

Be careful when ordering an omlette... I found that some place mix in a bit of pancake batter to make it more "fluffly" so if you do order an omlet be sure to ask if they do this. Otherwise do the egg beaters or fried eggs!

That's what I get too.

I'd probably make more adverturous egg selections if I could have butter though.

Yes, I had to stop eating Schar bread because I was getting sick on it all the time. I believe if I am not mistaken (it has been a long time) the Artisan line does not. I received this tip from someone else, and I don’t know if it is accurate but it seemed to help me, at least.
