I made some gluten-free Pantry bread. Chopped a loaf up and blenderized it. Then I froze them. Then I saut

I make bread just so I can make it into crumbs, but there are less labor-intensive substitutes. For breading meat or fish, you can use crushed Rice Chex, or potato chips, or something else that bakes up crunchy. One of my cookbooks recommends making corn bread or muffins and crumbling those as toppings. As a filler for meat loaf or meatballs, you can substitute cooked rice, grated vegetables, or gluten free oatmeal if you can tolerate that. To make crumbs from bread, cut or tear slices into cubes or small pieces, spread out on a tray to dry somewhat, then put into a 250 degree oven and stir every 30 minutes until they are evenly dry and slightly brown. If they are dry enough, you can use a food processor or blender to make crumbs and store them at room temperature. If you're not sure they are dry enough (you don't want mold), you can store them in the freezer.

I just take any bread that is getting a bit old and make it into croutons and crumbs.

What Neroli said.

We bake Gluten Free Pantry French bread, and save the heels from each loaf. They get cut up into croutons, or ground into bread crumbs in the blender. We keep the bread in the refrigerator and then freeze the heels until needed.

I like the Schar bread crumbs the best. They are pricey, but the little bag does go a long way. I also use Rice Chex ground up on their own or if I need to stretch the Schar crumbs, I combine the Rice Chex crumbs and Schar crumbs. If I have any bread failures, I grind those up into bread crumbs and put them in the freezer until I am ready to use them. These I tend to use in meatloaf or meatballs because the consistency varies so much and using them this way is less noticeable.

This might be a stupid question, but when you make bread crumbs from bread yourself as you describe, does it keep longer than the loaf of bread itself? I remember my mother-in-law keeping a bag a fresh bread crumbs she got from a deli. I was appalled when she told me she kept it for months. Do baked/dried out crumbs keep longer? I always figured regular bread crumbs had some preservatives in them.

I keept the heels from my Udi and Rudi and Katz breads in the freezer. When I need breadcrumbs, I take them out, thaw them and whirl them in the food processor. I also cut them into pieces, drizzle some melted dairy free margarine and season them and cook them on high in the microwave stirring often until they are crispy. I use the croutons for topping soups.

Thought you might appreciate the sense of humour of this recipe author:

"1/2 c breadcrumbs (for breadcrumbs, buy some crappy gluten-free bread from the grocery store and toast it then pulse in the food processor until crumby)

When you buy "normal" bread crumbs they are at room temp and seem to keep forever. The trick is to make sure they are dried out. Mold and bacteria need moisture to grow, so if your crumbs are thoroughly dry you can keep them on the shelf. I used to keep them in the freezer, but I started leaving the crumbs (or the dried cubes I was too lazy to pulverize) on the shelf and they have been just fine. If you have doubts, just keep them in the freezer.

What do you use for bread crumbs?

Thank you

Aleia's gluten free bread crumbs. They come plain or italian. They are great for chicken parm and brown nicely. Our regular grocery stores carry them here.

    • I have 2 copies of DQ9. One from each parent.
    • Obviously from the outside it's difficult to comment, but if I were you I'd leave allergies for now and pursue definitive celiac testing via your doctor and preferably a gastroenterologist. They're the first port of call for digestion issues. If you do wind up being celiac it's possible that other allergies or intolerances would resolve or improve in any case once you've been on the diet for awhile. That's been my experience.   Ps note that wheat allergy is completely different and unrelated to celiac or non celiac gluten sensitivity. 
    • Thank you ps, it may be better if the thread title was changed as we now have two 'overwhelmed' topics. If it were 'Bile ducts and celiac?' then it may attract more users with direct experience?
    • Hello and welcome Maybe? From reading others accounts there's a big variation in how quickly gluten antibodies respond to the gluten diet. I did similar to you and my doctor said that 1 week back on should be enough to show up in a test, but he didn't know what he was talking about sadly... The 2 week figure refers to the endoscopy, for blood testing 8-12 weeks on gluten is more normal.  Basically if it comes back positive fine you have your answer. If its negative it may be a false negative due to your going gluten free beforehand. If you want to pursue a diagnosis then yes. Don't go off gluten again until you confirm that all testing is complete.  Keep a journal noting any symptoms, that may be useful to you later. More info here: There's some good info in the site faq: https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/announcement/3-frequently-asked-questions-about-celiac-disease/ I know how you feel! Partway through my gluten challenge I knew that too results notwithstanding. Fwiw I think you've found your answer. Good luck!
    • Learn more about testing for celiac disease here: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ You do have to be on a gluten diet for ANY of the celiac tests (blood and biopsy) to work.  While the endoscopy (with biopsies) can reveal villi damage, many other things besides celiac disease can cause villi damage too: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-else-can-cause-damage-to-the-small-intestine-other-than-celiac-disease/ So, both the blood test and endoscopy are usually ordered.  There are some exceptions, but those are not common.
