Bread Crumbs - What To Use

14 posts in this topic

I know this topic has to be answered already in here, but I've tried searching the board and can't come up with the right combo of words to get my answer...

What do I use in place of bread crumbs? I'm used to using saltines and Parmesan bread crumbs when I make chicken and meatloaf. What can I replace them with?

I use Rice Chex. I just put some in a plastic bag and smash them with a rolling pin. Kinnikinnick makes a Panko style "bread crumb", which I have bought, but not tried yet.

i use corn chex for the chicken, They make a great baked chicken tender kinda thing.

I have used toasted gluten-free bread for meatloaf. Also gluten-free pretzel that you process work nicely too. The pretzel is nice on chicken breasts.

I get the Schar crumbs for breading, have used pretzels on chicken as already mentioned -- super yum. And you can always use gluten-free bread that you've toasted or allowed to go stale.

Orgran's Rice Crumbs are another good option.

Corn Chex or pretzels! Awesome!

Both of you mentioned using gluten-free bread. I swear to you, my gluten-free bread will NOT get stale! LOL I keep it in the freezer, but I was going to make meatloaf last week so in the morning I took 2 pieces out and toasted them repeatedly.... they would not get crunchy! LOL Every time I'd retoast it my husband would stare at me and say "and what's supposed to happen to it THIS time?". LOL It became a big joke and I ended up using regular bread crumbs and letting them eat meatloaf, I ate tuna on my "toasted" bread.. hehehehe

According to my Better Homes & Gardens cookbook, you can use soft (untoasted) breadcrumbs in place of regular at a different proportion.

1/3 cup regular bread crumbs = 1 cup soft bread crumbs

To make soft, just put bread in food processor. My meatloaves and meatballs turn out great!

Fresh bread crumbs or Ener-G bread crumbs for us. Mostly Ener-G. I tried another brand with baked cod a few weeks ago and no one liked it. :( Ener-G has good texture for breaded fish, chicken, pork chops, etc. Two thumbs up from us.

For meatloaf and meatballs I use crushed rice crackers and for breading I found some gluten free corn flake crumbs.

For a successful panade (the combination of breadcrumbs soaked with liquid such as milk) my preference is also to use homemade gluten-free breadcrumbs (I also make homemade gluten-free sourdough chunky croutons). Panade adds the texture you look for in meatballs and meatloaf. You can also add some coconut flour as a stabilizer. Adding finely minced mushrooms adds moisture and lovely depth. I also often add quite a lot of Parmigiano Reggiano for awesome flavour and texture.

A fun thing with meatballs is to insert a little cube of a good melting cheese inside.

I make bread just so I can have bread crumbs. I make Bette Hagman's 4 flour bread, which doesn't make the best slicing bread and crumbles fast, but it makes great crumbs. To go from loaf of bread to bread crumbs: Cut the bread into 1/2 inch cubes. Let dry in a bowl or on a cookie sheet overnight if you have time. Put the cubes into the oven at 250 F and stir every half hour. Check each time to see if they have gotten hard and crunchy yet. When they are ready, turn off the oven and leave them in there until the oven is cool (overnight is fine). Throw the cubes into the food processor to make crumbs, or fry them up with seasoning to make croutons. These will be dry enough to store at room temperature without getting moldy, or you can keep them in the freezer. This might be your alternative to trying to toast the bread dry.

I make my own or buy a loaf of gluten free bread to use for bread crumbs. I have never had a problem drying them out and processing them in the food processor. We use crushed tortilla chips alot for a coating. Our favorite is a whole bag of crushed tortilla chips mixed with at least a packet of taco seasoning (or more to desired taste) and coat chicken tenders with it (my husband dips the chicken in egg first). Spread onto baking pan and drizzle with butter and bake until done. They taste great with salsa or honey. I have heard of using crushed corn chips and potato chips also. I have also used instant mashed potato flakes.

Dang, Nancy -- what bread is that?! Udi's and Katz's will get very toasted. :) I'm going to try Ener-G in the future, as I hear it is awful for regular bread substitute (Udi's and Katz are my FAVORITE) but this isn't the first time I've heard it is good for breading. :) You guys are awesome. <3

I keep the end pieces of my Udi's bread in the freezer. When I have several I put them in the oven at 300 degrees for about 45 minutes and run through the food processor. Also, cut the pieces into shapes before baking to make "melba toast" for appetizers.

    • Thank you so much!  I just called to make an appointment with Dr. Fasano, He is booked out till September I will try Maureen Leonard.  If I can't get appointments for awhile, do I keep my son on gluten?  At the moment, we are waiting for his 2nd test results (celiac panel) to come in.  (Should be within the next few days) to ensure it wasn't a false positive before.  My other child is being tested as well.

    • Thanks Barry. It's just up the road from me and it's a place I know very well. Some of my family were there last week for a gig, it's a frightening thought.  You are most definitely not alone and you've found a good site. There are a lot of accounts on here which helped me join the dots and work out what was happening with my own reaction to gluten. The move to a new job may not be coincidental btw, additional stress is linked to changes in celiac presentation. In women pregnancy can bring it about. It makes it easy to dismiss it as stress related. If you've found the answer now you can look forward to healing and hopefully some unexpected health dividends if it's affecting you in multiple ways. I stopped eating gluten and found near immediate relief from brain fog and a lightening of depression. What I didn't count on was the disappearance of chronic back pain that I'd had off an on for many years. There were a lot more examples like that as my time on the gluten-free diet progressed.  The rheumatoid pain in my hand went too. I put together an faq for the diagnostic side awhile back which may be of some additional help. or at least offer some good links to further reputable info:  
    • Microwave potatoes are filling. 6 minutes on 50% power then turn and another 6 minutes . For large sweet potatoes increase the to 8  each side. Canned gluten-free salmon, tuna etc with minute rice ready microwaveable. Libbys makes peas and green beans gluten-free naturals canned. Arrowhead Mills makes instant breakfast rice and shine as well as quinoa rice and shine, just add water and microwave. Instructions say stove top but 1/4 cup with 3/4 water microwave 4 minutes, with paper towel over top to catch water overflow. Eggs are great scrambled in microwave too. Stir up 2 eggs. Put in ceramic mug. Cover microwave 2 minutes.  Look for gluten free rice crackers too. Fresh fruit or gluten-free dried fruit. gluten-free nuts and seeds.  Survival tip, eggs need no refrigeration if you coat them with mineral oil when raw. Can last month's this way, Google it.
    • Saturday was the symptoms I have been feeling amplified big time:  Terrible nausea, head ache, dizziness, stomach gurgling, fatigue. And the constipation/strange BMs.  Wasn't prepared for that one.  I sort of took Sunday off and felt a bit better, now the dizziness is ramping up again.  I'm planning on taking a break once a week. Hopefully that's ok.  I do have an appointment with a GI for June 7th. There were no openings until mid July when I called and while I was speaking to the nurse someone must have cancelled and so I grabbed the early June appointment.  But this is all like deja vu. This is exactly how I would feel growing up and most of my life.   Headache, dizzy, nausea.  And the sores on the roof of my mouth!  Ugh.
