Marie Callender's Frozen Dinners

Recommended Posts

I was at the grocery store last night picking up some ice cream and for kicks read some labels on Marie Callendar's frozen dinners.

There were a few with gluten-free ingredients (and I can't remember the life of me which ones, I'm thinking sliced beef pot roast, potatoes and broccoli, stuff like that).

Has anyone tried these before? They are made by ConAgra so I trust the ingredients, just wondering about the x-contamination factor since so many of the Marie Callender's meals DO have gluten.

Thoughts? Suggestions?

These would be a great add to have around for quick meals.

The only one that I know of is the Chicken, cheese, broccoli, wild rice dinner. I have been eating it with no problem. It would be nice if there were others. Sometimes I have no leftovers for my lunch.

Seriously, this is gluten-free? Pre-gluten-free days, whenever I felt lousy and my tummy felt gross, this meal was always my standby that I'd get at the store. Heat it up, tons of salt and for some reason, my stomach felt better then. Hmm, it all makes sense now.

Wow, that sounds good. I miss that Uncle Ben's rice bowl they used to make with cheese and rice. Come to think of it, I don't think they make rice bowls anymore period.

thanks for the responses. i am going to pay much better attention at the store this weekend and report back with the ones i think have gluten-free ingredients. i think it is con-agra so it should be safe, but i'll probably call directly just to make sure.

there were seriously 2-3 meals with meat and potatoes and maybe a rice/chicken one and stuff! i was seriously excited because quick meals are a thing of the past at our house and that would buy us just a little bit of freedom. it's not necessarily super healthy, but nice to have around in a pinch.

i looked for the uncle ben's rice bowls and didn't see them either. i LOVED those!

I know on the Chicken, Wild rice, broccoli, cheese dinner I saw it posted on some celiac site. I have no idea which one now. I try to take leftovers for my lunch, but try to keep them on hand when I don't have any. It would be great to know it they have other ones too. Wendy

I looked today and the chicken, cheese and rice was the only one that didn't list wheat in the ingredients. Sorry.
