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.

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.

    • Thanks for the information really appreciated 
    • There are some enzymes you can take to lessen the gut symptoms, they help break it down quicker to get over it faster. Your antibodies will still flare up for the next few weeks and weak havoc with your immune system so it is mostly damage control. Go easy on your gut everyone is different in terms of easy to digest foods. I myself use coconut and konjac porridge the next couple days of with egg whites and nothing solid. Others swear by broths, soups, sweet potatoes, rice porridge, and slow cooked meats.
      Imodium helps if you have D, if you get C like me up your magnesium, I use magnesium calm but rotate in more doctors best which is easier on the gut when glutened. Peptobismal many swear by. GasX can help also. Anise (not star anise) can help with bloat and gas also. Teas are wonderful, drink plenty of liquids regardless.



       
    • Hi all: I was diagnosed with Celiac in 2010 with blood testing and small bowel biopsy.  I have been following a gluten-free diet since and a lot of my symptoms and skin problems have gotten better.  However, I was at the beach and got bitten by flies and after biopsy of my legs and a whole Hurd of blood tests the diagnosed me with pyroderma gangrenosum (PD).  It is very painful and takes a long time to heal.  There is some research out there that does relate pyroderma gangrenosum to any inflammatory bowel disease.  I could only attach one photo but I hope this helps others to know PD is a big problem.  
    • Yeah my family stopped doing gifts a few years ago when we had a grandparent on each side of the family die. After that no one meets up, no gifts, no one even does cards. I tried 2 years ago to give all my relatives gifts, hand written cards......None of them even said thanks. Next year I said I will not give out cards or gifts unless one of them send me something....and well I did not even get a card. Funny thing is my birthday falls on the 16th of Dec so nothing from any relatives for 2 years in the month of December hit me pretty hard. I know my disease caused me to burn bridges and be a bit more secluded but it was ridiculous to the point that the past 2 years I have been sending myself on vacation the same way, hotel, and location that my family used to spend on vacations when we were a family.

      Sorry for the self pity thing, I was just pointing out that my extended family other then my parents (they still help me out and care) do not care about the holidays anymore. And I consider several members here, as messed up as it might be a "I care about your health and life" more so  then my actual aunts, uncles, and cousins. So I figured I might not be rich but if we had a secret santa type thing I could at least afford to send one person a gift.

      Funny how this community is more family to me then the one I grew up in. I guess it has to do with relating to people here more, feeling of caring, and overall support.

      I swear one of these days we do need to have some kind of meet up lol, would be crazy....oddly enough I can see certain members from our group being at each others throats, while others would be like arms around the shoulders singing carols....the mental image is quite amusing.

      But yeah I do wish I could send everyone here a gift or card, but you know how the financial issues are. If I ever when the lottery I am gifting everyone lol.
