Gluten Free Bread: what to do when it comes out bad

Gluten Free Pork Chop

Let’s see if we can “fix” our mess.

First thing to do is cut it into 1/4″ cubes and dry in the oven until hard. Croutons are a great thing to have and don’t you just miss having this little crunchy bits of goodness on your salad.

Take some with you in a small baggy on your next lunch or dinner date and pour the little beauties on top of your salad!

Croutons are nice, but you have a lot of “disaster” gluten free bread. Ok…. still turn it all into croutons and then do this:

Whiz enough in your food processor to make about a cup or two. Dip your chicken tenders or boneless chicken breasts in gluten free flour, then eggs or milk and then cover with the whizzed croutons. You can also mix your bread crumbs with pecans or walnuts and use that for the coating.

Fry up in a cast iron skillet and pour on the gravy!

Doesn’t that look yummy. Watch out Cracker Barrel – we’re coming to take over.

Want more you say? Well, how about using your bread crumbs for a filler for meatloaf and meatballs. Store some in the freezer so you have them handy when you want to make some real comfort food.

Another thing you can do with your croutons is make stuffing. This is a great recipe for Chestnut stuffing. You don’t have to have a turkey to make it. Serve with ham or steak or chicken or pork chops or roasted vegetables or whatever. You get the idea.

And one more thing to do with croutons: make bread pudding. It’s like a sweet stuffing dish. Instead of using chicken broth, you add eggs and whipping to make a custard that you soak the bread pieces in. Add some dried fruit or diced apples and bake in the oven.

Fantabulious stuff!

PS… There really are no “disasters” you can’t recover from. Just turn it into something else. I know you can. I have faith in you.
