Karen- Tell me more about this Brazilian cheese bread?

 

Irish- I just discovered the egg problem about 2 weeks ago. So I haven't full looked into substituting. For some reason I was under the impression that it was more for recipe with an egg or 2 and might not really work for one of those low carb type recipes with 5 eggs. I hate to waste! so im reluctant to try it.

I'm not Karen but do make Brazilian Cheese Bread often thanks to Addie's suggestion many moons ago.

Here is one I use most, but have done others:

Sorry. I did not know you were talking about 5-egg type recipes. 

 

Look around the internet, The vegan sites may be able to help

What sort of things does he like to bake?  There are some alternatives that aren't too bad - money and taste wise.  Cookies with no flour (PB choc chip & a chocolate with nuts or chips that I make).  Betty Crocker brownie mix - better and fudgyer than "real" ones.  Brazilian cheese breads and various versions.  There have been a lot of recipes on this forum.  Or just ask and maybe someone has one for you.

 

My family likes Jovial pasta the best - it doesn't overcook.  I never pay attention to the times - I just test them.  There is another brand that is good that way, too that wasn't mentioned......  I will check later and edit it back in here.

 

 

The first baking item I purchased was coconut flour and it lasted a while! Most recipes only require 1/2 cup of the stuff so the fact that it was nearly $7, didn't really matter. It turns out the coconut flour absorbs alot of liquid, usually in the form of many eggs. Now I have discovered that I have a problem with eggs! So no more coconut flour! Glad I didn't replace that bag.

 

Hubs' Dad gave him $20 when he dropped him off freshman year of college....he came home with $19 of it at the end of the year..  He HATES to spend money :D.  He likes to bake mostly cookies, bars, that kind of thing.  He said this is a good excuse not to bake for a while because we both could stand to lose a few pounds :D.

 

A good friend of mine is diabetic and she often substitutes applesauce in recipes.

The low carb recipes have a lot of eggs but they come out really moist and tasty. I think the applesauce substitute came out well, so I suppose if I switch to a traditional gluten free flour instead of the coconut, it would work out fine to replace just one or 2 eggs. If i use regular flour and regular recipes, then it should work out. I just have to do it.

 

I can't believe I have never heard of this cheese bread. I will have to make it sometime. That is, assuming I eventually get eggs back. Right now im too afraid of them.

Try very hard to not become afraid of any food. Keep a good log of reactions and trial any food you remove after some time. The trial should be that whole food only...as in eat one hard boiled or fried egg (with nothing in the pan...good nonsticks work for this) all by itself..,preferably before anything else has been ingested that day and only on days that you are feeling good digestively.

Gluten free & egg free is tough.  Lived through it though, and learned a lot.

 

Go for your old recipes that have only 1 or 2 eggs to replace.  Think about why the egg was used in the recipe to determine which way you will replace it.  (lighter texture?, hold the other ingredients together?, and how much flavor was this egg adding to the dish?)

 

For dishes that need a lift ~ egg replacer product / baking powder & vinegar

hold it together/ flavor ~ fruit puree (as in applesauce or babyfood) I have added water to almond paste in food processor,

hold it together (no added flavor) chia seed or flax with water, gelatin [vegan recipes are not going to show how easy it is to swap eggs for gelatin ~ there is such a thing as vegan gelatin, but not convenient to find]

 

I love Cybele Pascal recipe book, Allergen Free Baker's Handbook.

I make a bread like substance with apples ground in the blender added to coconut flour, sugar (or agave or honey), cinnamon and one egg...the egg could be replaced to but I'm fine with them in moderation.

Oh I usually add a touch of vanilla too...I love vanilla :)

Half coconut/half almond flour is good too.

 

 

that sounds interesting!  I would need some cinnamon with that!  :)

 

SMRI - I would be happy to share any recipes with you, if you want them.

Post away!!!!  I feel like I'm learning to cook all over again--even though I haven't had to change THAT much, it's making me think a lot more in the kitchen then I've had to.  I had some gluten-free waffles this morning and normally I would have syrup but because of my calorie restrictions, I had to come up with something else so I warmed up some fresh fruit.  What I REALLY am craving now are some Hostess Powdered Sugar Donuts so any substitute for that would be lovely :D

Its a boy.  And that is so right!  Trying to convince him he might like a more rainproof jacket than a lined hoodie.  He won't have cute stuff for his walls or nice matching pillow shams & bed spread but we are trying to whittle down the tools to one tool bag and the power drill box!

This is the recipe I use for brazilian cheese bread. http://www.ourbestbites.com/2011/02/quick-brazilian-cheese-rolls-pao-de-queijo-2/

 

Something to keep in mind if you make it is that it will not work with an egg substitute. I tried several times with several options for an egg sub and every time they came out rather flat and hard. Other than the egg and tapioca though it's a fun recipe to play with.

You could use any nuts or chips with these - just check butterscotch chips - some are made with malt.

 

Flourless chocolate cookies
 
 
Mix 2 cups powdered sugar, 1/2 cup cocoa, 2 tsp. cornstarch, 1/4 tsp. salt, 2 egg whites (not beaten). 
Should be thick enough to form balls; if not, add more sugar. Should be sticky and form a imperfect ball. 
Stir in 1 cup nuts (unsalted peanuts, pecans, or walnuts.) Form into 15 balls, place on parchment paper, and bake 16-19 minutes in a 300 oven until crackly and shiny. Cool completely. . They have a sort of crisp-meringue outside, and a soft, chewy inside, 
 
 
 
Any way.....  if you go to the main page (for some reason it works better for me from the main page) and use the "google" search, you can find lots of things.  Its in the top right corner.  Use the little "gear" for more options.  If you choose "as posts" (down near the bottom) you can read the actual posts and its easier.

Some people use Funyons.  They were gluten-free last I heard.

You can make your own crispy onions. Just soak in milk, bread and fry in oil. Lots of recipes if you need step by step instructions with measurements if you google for it. Making your own are tastier and far better because of the lack of weird ingredients imo. Of course, there's nothing wrong with the occasional Funyon if you're into that sort of thing, they're good.

okay, I made a Bday dinner for my bestie tonight.

All her faves:
santa marghuerita prosecco
duck pate, brie , fruit, crackers
Potato gratin
asparagus
Filet of beef tenderloin studded with garlic and draped with bacon
Port wine sauce with mushrooms
Tiramisu
and we decanted a bottle of  Taylor Fladgate Port from 1994 that we have stored since I bought it for J as a wedding gift 1997
It was a perfect 100 from Wine Spectator back then and we have waited to share it with her when we moved to florida (she loves port)

 

I should be good and buzzed and hyper by 10PM. :lol:

    • Hi! I've just been recently diagnosed as Celiac through the whole biopsy-shebang, and I have a little bit of insight on the whole diagnosis thing and how I was eventually diagnosed, and my advice for you. Brace yourself, this might be a bit long, but it might be worth the read and I promise I will eventually get to the point. If you don't want the huge story, skip to the long line of capital As: I first saw my doctor when I had a few problems swallowing. I've compared it to when you're nervous and you feel like you have a lump in your throat - but after I eat and (sometimes) drink. I just mentioned briefly it to my family doctor when I was addressing another issue, but right away he referred me to a gastroenterologist and ordered a barium swallow x-ray test. The x-ray came back completely normal, and so the g.e. then suspected GERD, put me on acid blockers to see if they would work, no harm done sort of thing. The only thing I got out of the acid blockers were the side effects, so it was back to square 1. The g.e. said that the next test he could do was an upper endoscopy with biopsies. (hint: the celiac test!) Wanting to find a solution to my problems, the endoscopy was scheduled. Pretty painless, I was in and out in a day, but the results took much much longer. Biopsies, or the little pieces of my esophagus, stomach, and small intestine, were sent to the lab, and they came back clean. I didn't really go back to the g.e. for a whole year after that because life became busy, I wasn't prompted to follow up, and I just dismissed the swallowing problems the best I could and went on my way. Now, I've never been huge on the gluten, big bread-y sandwiches or croissants or pies were never foods that I super "enjoyed". I wouldn't feel bad after eating them, I just didn't like the taste of bread so much, but I loved cookies, cake and a lot of other things that do have gluten in them. I lead a lowish gluten life but I wasn't really monitoring it that way. Everything changed when I got really nasty (systemic) poison ivy. My eyes were swollen shut, and the rash was everywhere. I almost went to the hospital, but cooped out at the family doctor's place and got a script for prednisone (a steroid). But, I found that after I had tapered off the steroids, I had magically become lactose intolerant. So back to the family doctor again probably because I broke my toe or something, but we also got to talk about this magical lactose intolerance business (because I love anything dairy and it was indeed devastating). He was surprised as there is literally no correlation between steroids and becoming lactose intolerant. He asked me if I still had the swallowing problems, which I did, and so it was back to the g.e. for round 3. because my family doctor "does not believe in coincidences". Meeting with the G.E., he mainly addressed the swallowing problems telling me that he had done what he could to diagnose with the technology that we had at the highly specialized hospital that we were at, and I would have to travel about 3 hours away to see a different doctor who would do some tests involving the muscles in the esophagus. But right before I was about to leave, we started talking about lactose intolerance. He brought up other foods that I was avoiding (if any), and then the conversation went to gluten. I mentioned that I had an aunt that was gluten-sensitive. He advised that I do the blood test that can show an indication of celiac whenever in the future. I decided to do it that day. At this point in time, I was not eating much gluten because of the fact that it was personal preference. The normal range for values in this test is from 0 to 20. A few weeks later, I learned that I scored a 35. A second upper endoscopy with biopsies was scheduled, but this time I was told to eat a moderate amount of gluten everyday before the procedure. I ate about two slices of bread per day, which is more than I normally would. I was normal for the first two-three weeks of the gluten plus diet, but then I became really sick. I started getting the normal celiac symptoms, like diarrhea and extreme tiredness. Near the end, I had debilitating stomach pain and I was 2 times more asleep than awake each day. I couldn't do the 2 pieces of bread a day some days, but the pain was still there. I knew that I wouldn't ever have to force myself to eat bread for a test ever again. I was called a few days before my endoscopy telling me that a kid in a worse state than me had to take the OR during my time. I forced myself to eat more bread for another month and a half. The day finally came. I was diagnosed celiac, which I have concluded to be initiated by (1) the steroids/poison ivy and (2) the gluten binge fest.  AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA Celiac Disease isn't completely understood yet. Most of the time if you weren't showing symptoms when you were a baby (so your case) it means that celiac was/could be triggered by an event in your life that causes stress on the body (like stress, physical injury, etc.).  The positive result that you got from the blood test doesn't automatically mean celiac, but it could. Here's some options: Talk to your doctor (or a different doctor) or even a specialist gastroenterologist (you can get a referral from a family doctor (general physician)) and see if you can do the blood test again, you have to have some kind of gluten for this to work in advance, so if you don't want to break your gluten-free streak, than don't really invest in this option. If you feel comfortable, you could even ask to do this test under a few scenarios (no gluten (now) and after a gluten binge, compare results). If you do this test and your indication is low off gluten and then high after gluten, I'd probably skip the biopsy. That's a strong enough sign that you don't need to put yourself through the painful-gluten binge. Maybe this is what that first doctor just assumed. But having that test when you haven't had any gluten could make the difference - it acts as a control. Go straight to the biopsy. You could do this, but I'd probably do the blood test first. I went through a lot of stress with the gluten-binge that you have to do to get an accurate result, you would also be breaking your gluten-free diet that may/may not be helping you right now. Do nothing, stay on your gluten free diet hoping that it is helping you. But if you are not celiac or gluten-sensitive (celiac before it starts to wreck your small intestine), going gluten free isn't healthy - you can do some research on this if it interests you. If you feel bad/unhealthy after going gluten free it's probably a sign. Good luck, also know that you might come to a point of stress in your life that can start celiac's destructive path. Ultimately, it is your body, and you should not feel forced or hesitate to act on health issues that impact you.
    • I'm sorry that life is so hard right now. Really.  I can't imagine working 3 jobs and trying to manage this terrible illness.  I think about American society and their obsession with food often.  Whenever you look at the internet, there are all these fabulous gluten-free recipes, but when you don't have time or money to cook these things, a simple gluten-free lifestyle is just that - simple. There isn't a lot of variety, so it's kind of boring. But, I guess I have gotten used to being boring. I just eat corn chex and fruit or yogurt for breakfast. I eat a lot of eggs, beans, rice, corn tortillas, nuts, chicken, fruit and veggies.  A loaf of gluten-free bread will last me 4-6 months in the freezer.  I buy a bag of dried beans for $1.29, I soak them overnight, and put them in the crockpot the next day. I add different spices, sometimes chicken and Voila! - dinner is ready when I get home from a long day. Family gatherings are miserable and I haven't quite figured out the best way to deal yet. If my grandmother were still alive, I imagine she would be a lot like yours - well-meaning but not really able to understand the nitty-gritty.   I just reassure my family that I am fine and that they really shouldn't do anything special for me. I bring a bag of Hershey's kisses or other gluten-free candy I can nibble on along with my meal and then I try to treat myself to a nicer home cooked meal later in the week when I have time to cook - because who has time to cook during Christmas???? And, I agree with knitty knitty. If someone else in your family/friends were gluten-free for medical reasons, it would make socializing a bit easier. One of my husband's good friends is NCGS. When we get together as a group, we can make each other special dishes and it helps to feel less isolated.  Good luck!  
    • Hi!  Um, please forgive my quirky sense of humor..... Celiac Disease is genetic... All first degree relatives of people diagnosed with Celiac Disease should be tested for the disease, too.  Gall bladder problems are often associated with Celiac Disease.  Your diagnosis might save your whole family from further medical problems as they age and the disease progresses... You need to set a good example if relatives are similarly diagnosed.... and then everybody will have to eat gluten free at family gatherings....  
    • That's what I thought!  My father has gluten sensitivity and I almost regret telling the doctor that because I feel that made her jump to conclusions because of that.  He never had the biopsy either.  I feel like doctors think it's just easier to say it's celiac when they show a gluten sensitivity to avoid additional testing, even if that diagnosis doesn't make any sense at all.  My doctor didn't even offer the biopsy, and said the blood work was enough.  Should I seek a third opinion?  I mean, I've been gluten free for 9 months...
    • It will prolong your life....celiac is a autoimmune disease that  causes your own immune system to attack you. The longer your eating gluten the worse it gets, I mean all kinds of other autoimmune disease, food allergies, food intolances. One day you could lose the ablity to eat carbs, or sugars, or become randomly allergic to tomatoes or corn all cause you decided not to be on road to healing I am not kidding here. I am allergic to corn, can not process meats, have another autoimmune disease that makes it so I can not eat dairy or CARBS/SUGARS.   I wish I could go back in time and go on a gluten-free diet a decade ago. Worse that could happen you could develop cancer or other complications and yes we have had this happen to a member before on our forums. Think of it like this your just changing brand here I will give you some links to some gluten-free foods, and how to order them, You can even order alot of them online this should help simplify it for you. I suggest thrive, amazon, or one of hte other links from there, Many you can order from the manufacture. https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/117090-gluten-free-food-alternatives-list/
