We save the heals of our gluten-free bread and make them in the blender.

There have been many threads of different breadcrumb ideas...try typing "breadcrumbs" into the "search forum via google" at the top right of your screen - you'll find lots of ideas.

For meatballs/meatloaf, I crumble a slice or two of gluten free bread so it resembles fresh breadcrumbs.

For "breading" chicken, I use instant potato flakes.

I also just use the butts of my bread. (Yeah, I call them bread butts.) I just throw them in the blender or food processor. I use them for meatballs or meatloaf or mac & cheese, those sorts of things. I've never done something that is breaded exactly so I don't have experience with that although I don't see why they wouldn't be perfectly acceptable.

Thanks. I don't have bread butts (ha!). I haven't had bread for a long time (pre-celiac).

Anyone else? Want to make a nut loaf.

Gluten free Rice Chex cereal ground up in the blender makes a great coating.

I make bread just for crumbs, using Bette Hagman's Four Flour bread. You could use any recipe, but this one isn't very good for slices, but easy enough to make. After baking, I let it cool and cut it into 1/2" cubes or tear it up depending on how aggressive I feel toward the bread, let it sit in a big bowl covered with a towel to dry out a little overnight (and keep it from the cats). Next day I spread the pieces in a baking dish and put them in the oven at 250, stirring every 30 minutes until thoroughly dry. You can even leave them in the oven overnight as it cools. Cubes can be made into croutons at this point, or just bag it all up until you feel like getting the food processor or blender out. Grind in batches to the desired fineness and store at room temp. The key to safe storage is to make sure the bread is completely dry, otherwise it could get moldy. You could keep the crumbs in your freezer if you have more room than I do. A bread recipe that calls for 2 cups of flour will make, oddly enough, about 2 cups of crumbs. Today is a 2 loaf day because those eggplants need to be made into parmesan and that will take a lot of crumbs.

Kinnikinnick makes a very good panko style bread crumb.Drop them in the blender/food processor for smaller crumbs. Throw in some Italian seasoning for seasoned crumbs.

I use the end pieces of bread, dried as described above, for crostini and croutons.

I grind up gluten-free Rice Krispies in the food processor. I'm soy free too, so the Rice Chex don't work for me, but I'll bet they'd work well too?

Gluten free Rice Chex does not have soy in it....at least not on the west coast where I live...I'm also soy intolerant.

I grind up gluten-free crackers for meatloaf. For chicken breading, I use gluten-free bisquick. For fish, I use Zanteranes. (Sp?)

Kinnikinnick "panko" crumbs are a far cry from authentic panko crumbs which are more like large jagged shards. No matter - they certainly do have their place. It just sort of bugs me that they call them "panko". :angry:

You can also use cornbread cubes.

Like a lot of other "store-bought" stuff, I never used Panko pre-gluten free, so I don't know the difference. If you've never had the good stuff, the substitute is fine.

i made panko by accident - i use the heels of (udi's and rudi's) bread to make crumbs - i usually dry them out really well in the oven before i put them in the processor. this time i got in a hurry and tried to grind them while they were still really soft and they were clumping up so i shook the grinder so they would unclump and they resembled panko so i baked them for 5 minutes and they came out GREAT. very happy with this because i used to used panko alot. i have found packaged glutino crumbs, but they were wierd. like corn-y wierd.

lolz - the first bread i bought when i was dx'd was ener-g. i was ready to jump off the ledge... icky...

    • I look back at photos from a few years ago now and can see the inflammation in my face. I spent decades with my body fighting constantly without my really being aware. Freaked me out when I realised! Few things to think about: If up to 1% of pop are celiac, at much as 6% could be NCGS - further reading here: https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/117969-non-celiac-gluten-sensitivity-a-resource/ NCGS can present in the same varied ways as celiac - Not just or even primarily gastro related. I get back pain, chest pain, skin problems, eyesight problems, anxiety, depression, balance issues, nerve tremors and twitches etc. etc Try to treat these next months as a special case. Dial your diet back and eat really basic and simple. I lived on omelettes filled with veggies, huge green salads with olive oil and cider vinegar as dressing and a very simple evening meal with maybe some meat and rice. I ate as little processed foods as I possibly could. So try and avoid sauces, anything in a box really.  Your aiming to help your body heal and to reduce the amount of ingredients going in to the basic safest foods. Eat clean and healthy and avoid any possible gluten source. Spend a bit of time learning about hidden sources of gluten too. This thread will help:  https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/91878-newbie-info-101/   Final point. You may like me eventually have to live life without gluten and without the comfort of a diagnosis that says precisely why. This is not always easy, but what you learn about your body in the next 3 months of this trial could help you to do this. Keep the diary, note your reactions and hopefully when you see the Rheum in 3 months you'll have conducted your own science experiment and have the data you need to make a good decision. Best of luck Matt  
    • Newly diagnosed, who do I tell? I'm not talking friends & family. I am normally private about health matters but I feel it seems I need to tell so many people. Does anyone have a list? Some are obvious like doctor and dentist but one came up for me the other day when my massage therapist asked if I'd had any changes in my health and I said no but halfway through the session realized that, "Duh I should have mentioned Celiac! Clearly the lotion used could be an issue." So who is on your list to tell? Here's who I have so far: Doctor(s) Dentist Restaurant Servers Massage Therapists Hair Stylist Babysitters, Petsitters or Housesitters (anyone who might bring or prepare food in my home)      
    • I feel the same way! Newly diagnosed (gluten-free since July 1) and never had major GI symptoms mostly neurological issues and other very random stuff. So no red flags to tell me, "You just glutened yourself!" Or at least I haven't identified them yet. I'm not sure if I'm feeling better or not yet. I do have more energy but lots of anxiety and random symptoms that might be celiac related... but who knows. I'm just not sure if this is what "feeling better" is yet. I can't imagine what that is like... or will be like. And I keep reading about people "getting sick" when they are glutened but that is so vague. For me, I'm not sure I'll know if I've actually been glutened or not. I feel like I'm extremely careful but I'm not sure if I'm being over the top, or if I'm doing it right, or not enough and need to do more. I'd just like to get to a nice gluten-free baseline and note what that is like so that I can compare how I used to feel and how I might feel if glutened so that I'll know! Sorry, didn't mean to hijack your thread and provide no answers. I can just relate, that's all.
    • Last check(last fall sometime) my b12 and folate were fine. He did check my iron and it was fine. My potassium is technically normal, but lower than my cardio wants(I'm on q med that depletes it). Last time I had a full and extensive panel run was years and years ago. I recall my copper being high(but no one ever retested it), vit d and a couple others were low. I have tested positive for labs used to evaluate malnutrition, but it's been q couple of years since they've done those. Just going to put it on the back burner for now I guess. Can't afford to lose much more weight, but they tend to get more serious the lower my BMI goes(not on purpose, I'll have periods where I can gain a bit because I'm not vomiting a lot. Past two days I've been throwing up again after I eat.) Maybe my next colonoscopy will finally show something useful.  It's just 3 years this time and I've been arguing about my gut for 18 years now so what's a little More? 
    • Re. gorilla munch - Made with corn, says gluten free on the box, I don't know why it wouldn't be. It's quite yummy. Corn pops and Post golden crisp used to be my favorites, before celiac.
