Bison Mushroom Burgers | Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free

Gluten-Free Bison Mushroom Burgers with Crispy Fried Shallots Today’s recipe is for a quick and easy, gluten-free, dairy-free bison mushroom burgers and crispy fried shallots served on Schär ciabatta bread. I love using leaner ground bison instead of ground beef. In particular, we really love this Great Range ground bison. We’ve been making a lot of recipes with it over the years. A particularly popular post is Cajun bison dirty rice. Still one of our absolute faves! It is also quite fabulous in Shepherd’s Pie. And of course, we used it to make tacos, meatball stroganoff, and Philly cheesesteak pizza. I love the flavor combo of mushrooms and bison. Plus mushrooms are so good for us. They contain folate, nutrients, vitamins and are a prebiotic...

Gluten-Free Fried Chicken Tenders and Okra

These classic comfort foods, fried chicken tenders and okra, are made using gluten-free brown rice flour. And instead of dipping in a traditional buttermilk and egg wash, we substitute goat milk yogurt, water and eggs for absolute fried chicken perfection. We Really Love Fried Foods! Isn’t fried chicken and okra such a classic comfort food? Before I had to start eating gluten-free we loved picking up fried chicken and okra and mashies from Chicken Express. Yum. But since I can’t do that anymore, we try to make similar food at home for the occasional treat. And although we’ve used lots of different methods for the breading, this one is my absolute new favorite way to fry chicken. It’s also great for frying okra, mushrooms, and...

Gluten-Free Spinach Goat Feta Puff Pastry

Thank you, Schär Having to eat gluten-free (and dairy-free for awhile) usually meant bypassing some of the most delicious treats. And sometimes you just really miss those old comfort food classics. Lately, we have been trying a bunch of Schär gluten-free products and are just blown away. We found hamburger buns and puff pastry dough at Central Market. Then we tried the pizza crust found at Sprouts and were so excited about the taste and texture. I’ve been so happy with the products so far (btw – this is not a sponsored post)! They also have the best table crackers and artisan multigrain bread (also at Sprouts). It’s awesome. Brett loves the entertainment crackers (taste so much like Ritz) and they are perfect for dipping...

Gluten-Free Chicken Breakfast Sausage

Biscuits, Breakfast Sausage & Gravy Who doesn’t love biscuits, sausage and gravy? We certainly love this comfort food around here! But how do we make it gluten-free and a little healthier? This one was not easy. Especially the biscuits. So I’ve tried to make gluten-free biscuits many times. When you use cold butter and buttermilk – they come out fantastic. But not so much when you use butter substitutes. So I really haven’t made great biscuits since giving up dairy. I was complaining about this to my friend, Suzanna, who makes beautiful biscuits and she suggested I use goat butter since I can tolerate goat’s milk. Genius! So I used Pamela’s Biscuit & Scone Mix, goat milk butter and coconut milk creamer and followed the...

Eggplant Chicken Parmesan | Gluten-Free

Make one of your favorite comfort foods, like Chicken Parmesan, a little healthier by adding eggplant.  More veggies always make it better for you!  Plus it keeps the gluten-free breading from getting soggy. Eggplant Chicken Parmesan Chicken Parm is such a staple comfort food around here.  And this version of eggplant chicken parmesan shows up on the menu often!   Especially during the summer when eggplants are in season.  The eggplant adds a nice texture and taste to the dish.   Plus it keeps the chicken nice and crispy when you put the red sauce and cheese on top. It is another way to “healthify” gluten-free fried food.  And do we love fried food.  Since I could start eating goat’s milk again we’ve been frying...

Good Gluten-Free Pizza with Schär Crusts

We made the best pizzas with Schär gluten-free, lactose free, non GMO pizza crusts. We used Funny Farm mozzarella goat cheese, organic pizza sauce and some awesome toppings for the win! Schär Gluten-Free Pizza Crusts I have really been into trying out new Schär gluten-free products lately. And every time I try something new I get even more excited about their gluten-free products. I have used the ciabatta bread to make Caper Basil Vinaigrette Roasted Pepper Toasts with Halloumi cheese. Then I tried the puff pastry dough when it hit the market and it was awesome. You you can find it at Central Market here in Austin. We fried it to make beignets. It’s been forever since I could indulge in a beignet. And the...

Gluten-Free Meatless Grilled Burgers

We grilled the gluten-free Beyond Meat plant-based burger patties and served them on Schär gluten-free hamburger buns and were totally impressed by both! The Beyond Burger So this isn’t a recipe or paid partnership – I just wanted to tell you how good these gluten-free meatless grilled burgers are! We are trying to eat less meat in general. And we plan a Meatless Monday dinner every week so I have lots of veggie dishes on the blog. My latest exciting copy cat was a veggie version of Southwestern Egg Rolls from Chili’s appetizer menu. There are awesome dips like pimento cheese or artichoke spinach dip. Fried goodies like fried artichoke hearts or fried mozzarella cheese sticks. Served up with a nice marinara sauce or yogurt...

Gluten-Free Bison Meatball Stroganoff

This gluten-free bison meatball stroganoff is made with gluten-free fusilli pasta, spice mixture, mushrooms, beef broth, and goat’s milk skyr (Besos) from Bee Tree Farm. Gluten-Free Bison Meatball Stroganoff Beef stroganoff was one of my favorite dishes growing up. I would request it from mom all the time. Just loved that creamy wonderful sauce. I really did love sour cream a lot. It was just as hard to give up as cheese back in 2014. So of course, I do have an old tried and true recipe for “beef” stroganoff on the blog made with ground turkey that is gluten and dairy free. We use coconut milk, beef broth and cornstarch in the spices to create the creamy sauce. Quite honestly though, I’m getting kind...

Gluten-Free Pepper Lime Beef Fajitas

A sirloin flap marinated with coconut aminos garlic sauce, lime juice, freshly ground black pepper and few simple ingredients make the perfect gluten-free, dairy-free pepper lime beef fajitas at home. Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Pepper Lime Beef Fajitas I’ve been going through a fun phase of making some of our favorite restaurant foods at home. Recently, I made a killer gluten-free chicken fried steak and the best vegan potato nachos that remind me of the fries and nacho cheese they served at Fuddruckers. And last week we made Southwestern Egg Rolls like you find on the appetizer menu at Chili’s. And one of our absolute favorites are the pepper lime beef fajitas they serve at Lupe Tortilla. But it can get a little pricey. So when we...

Southwestern Egg Rolls | Gluten-Free, Goat Cheese

Southwestern Egg Rolls I LOVE the Southwestern Egg Rolls they serve on the appetizer menu at Chili’s.  And I desperately miss being able to eat them.  But I love to take an old comfort food recipe and adjust it to fit into my dietary restrictions: gluten-free, dairy-free (except for goat cheese/milk or Parmesan), clean as possible, organic and non-GMO if possible. I had huge success with this white chicken enchilada casserole, pimento cheese, and Philly cheesesteak casserole. So these have been on the list of things to copy cat for some time now.  We finally had some time to make them and I’m so excited how they turned out! The ingredients are listed on the appetizer menu as crispy flour tortillas, chicken, black beans, corn,...
