How To Convert This Recipe?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I used to love a recipe similar to this. I don't think it had the celery seeds or cayenne in it though.

http://www.finedinings.com/stuffed_green_olives_wrapped_in_.htm

How would I make this gluten-free? Could I just sub a gluten-free flour mix? Would I need to add 1/2 a teaspoon of Xanthan gum?

Another problem. Daughter hates green olives. She calls them puke bombs. So... Do you think this would work if I just formed little balls? No olives? She does like black olives but doesn't like them cooked in things. If I need to put something else inside...what would it be? Little cube of ham? Little slice of hot dog or Vienna Sausage?

Thanks.

I've never made, or even tried these (I also do not like green olives! :D ), but would assume(from looking at the recipie) the flour is just a binder to hold the ingrediants together. I would think an all purpose blend would work. I don't think you would need to add xanthum. I'm thinking a cube of ham might be good...or the sausage idea. I would make your mix...try one or two and see if the cheese mix works. You can always make adjustments from there. There were recipes flying around at Christmas time of a sausage/cheese/bisquick kind of ball thingy...it might be similar it it's not wrapped around something.

Thanks! I have seen those recipes but I think they call for egg and I can't use that.

It is totally fine to use a gluten-free all purpose flour. Using cheese will make a fine binder so I would skip the xanthan gum. If you wish to use xanthan gum, the usual rule of thumb is 1 teaspoon per 1 cup of flour. If you use an all-purpose flour which already contains xanthan gum you will not need to add additional. Check the label. They are all different. Not using the olives makes them cheese puffs. I suggest adding egg or egg replacer to get them to rise. This is making me hungry thinking about them! You can add whatever seasoning she may like, or not at all. The cheese alone will give it flavor. I would use water for a liquid, as this tends to make gluten-free baked goods lighter; use about 1/2 cup of flour, 1/2 stick butter and 2 eggs. You can add ham, bacon, etc., if you wish. Add whatever amount of shredded cheese looks good to you. If you don't have any gluten-free all purpose flour you can make your own by using rice flour or sorghum which is a little heavier, mixed with tapioca and potato starch. Tapioca is a lighter flour. Use more starch than flour. Good luck!
