Which Of Your gluten-free Recipes Came Out Really Great

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I felt my T-giving meal was a success. Our niece even asked for my Caraway Soda Bread recipe. I was so pleased. She said she is going to bake it exactly per the recipe b/c she liked it so much. I use the Bette Hagman recipe in one of my cookbooks. If anyone wants it, let me know.

Which of your recipes turned out so amazing that you plan to make it again?

Well, I tried a stuffing this year that didn't turn out too badly. Wasn't quite crispy enough for my hubby's taste, but the flavor was good. I also made some little pumpkin "pies" in muffin tins using Enjoy Life Gingerbread cookies on the bottom. Cooking is further complicated for me because I have to use egg replacer and alternative dairies, besides the gluten-free's. I still don't have everything figured out yet, but Thanksgiving went better than it has in the past.

I made a very simple sweet potato recipe. I peeled and then baked the sweet potatoes. I diced about four apples and baked those, too. Once those were soft, I mixed them with a tablespoon of butter and whipped them in my KitchenAid. I put them in a pan and topped them with a walnut, brown sugar, and butter mixture and baked that for about a half hour. It was a success!

I made two stuffings. The one with the sausage was excellent because I used Udi's bread. The other was with Pamela's cornbread, dried cherries and apricots. I'll make them both again.

The cornbread stuffing: I made one package of Pamela's cornbread according to the instructions (with water), added chopped fried bacon and two handfuls of chopped onions. Once baked I cut it in half, put one half in the freezer for another meal. The other half I broke apart into bite size pieces, tossed in two handfuls of dried cherries and added half a package of chopped dried apricots. Then added one beaten egg, stirred and put it in my turducken. It went very well with the turkey and the duck.

The cranberry-apple sauce was a hit, as was ... well, everything else. The pumpkin pie "ice cream" turned out really well too.

Our turkey breast wa a big hit. My husband brined it appx. 12 hours in a solution of salt. sugar, rosemary, basil, and apple juice. He then smoked it with apple wood, rosted it in the oven and basted it once with honey. It was the most moist, juicy and flavorful turkey breat I have ever had. The new crust I tried for my cherry delight desert was a big hit. It was sorghum flour, coconut flour, shredded coconut, chopped pecans, coconut oil and honey.

I made my friend a loaf of gluten-free pumpernickel and she made her stuffing with it. So, so good! We had it last year with rice and enjoyed it, but it's better with the bread!

I made a triple layer chocolate mousse cake that is delicious. I can't wait to take it somewhere as it is quite impressive.

Everything was so delicious!

I wish I could have had a taste of all of your recipes as well. :D

Trillum Hunter- Chocolate mousse cake? i would be so absolutely grateful f you'd share :D pretty please

im a chocolate freak

This is my first thanksgiving as a family with my husband and it was a success. i made chicken and dumplings, using a regular recipe and just subbed domata flour and they were very good. cream dumplings that didn't overcook or fall apart like the last ones i tried. i'll definitely make it again

also i made a chocolate cheesecake from annaliese roberts cookbook wheat free recipes and menus. everyone loved that as well

my dinner rolls didn't rise as much as i would have liked. i just want light fluffy rolls that stay soft. anyone? please :)

haha overall thanksgiving turned out wonderfully and now i am looking forward to christmas

I have been gluten free for less than a month, so I was a bit unsure about Thanksgiving. We had an early Thanksgiving, and I had great success with stuffing made from Food for Life Brown Rice Bread; onions, celery and garlic sauteed in butter; homemade turkey broth; chopped apple and pecans; 2 whole eggs; and some herbs. I made a second batch of it, adding chopped turkey to it, and brought it to "real" Thanksgiving dinner at my brother-in-law's house, so my daughter and I didn't have to concern ourselves that their turkey was stuffed with bread stuffing. :)

My second attempt at gravy (brought in a kids' lunch thermos to "real" Thanksgiving) was a success, using both brown rice flour and tapioca flour.

I also made a stovetop pudding out of canned pumpkin, egg, milk, and cinnamon that my family enjoyed.

My failure: pumpkin pie crust. This was sad, as I've always been the pie maker at family gatherings. :(

Oh, Karina's pumpkin cake for sure...I will make it again...SOON! The only thing I did differently was to add a bit of xanthan gum...just in case :P

Cranraspberry jello salad, but its gluten-free anyway. Making it for Christmas ;)

Mrs. P's yeast crescent rolls were great too. I ate 2 or 3 while they were hot, then saved the rest for my dd's (the gluten-free ones) to take to their house that evening. They loved the rolls, last year we I didn't make rolls and we all missed them <_<

I hosted Thanksgiving for the first time this year and I'm really pleased with how everything turned out (except for the gravy, I have to come up with something better next year). I think my favorite was the cornbread stuffing...homemade cornbread with sausage, onion, sage, and celery. Yum.

I was going to have cornbread muffins, but they came out a little too dry and thought it'd be too much cornbread. So, I was in a pinch and decided to use Pamela's Bread Mix with the recipe for the rolls...VERY good. They came out very light and tore just like real rolls. I usually mix my own flours, so I have the challenge ahead of me to come up with just as good of a homemade mix to use.
