Gluten Free Turkey, Bacon, Swiss Cheese Melt

Gluten Free Turkey, Bacon, Swiss Cheese Melt

Hello, friends!

With Thanksgiving right around the corner here in the states, my family is already coming up with creative ideas for the turkey leftovers.

Honestly, why wait until Thanksgiving to enjoy delicious turkey tenderloin? Turkey made a wonderful, autumn dinner this weekend, and my kids loved using the leftover turkey to reinvent lunch the next day.

This gluten-free Turkey, Lettuce, Tomato, Bacon, and Swiss Cheese Melt (yes, half the fun is piling on all of the ingredients) was entirely my kids’ creation, so I’m handing it over to my daughter, Nicole, to explain the details of the sandwich making process.

Nicole here! I’m so excited to be sharing this recipe with you all. :)

Let’s start with the turkey. I’ve made turkey melts before with thin-sliced deli turkey, but you really can’t beat the taste of fresh, home cooked turkey tenderloin. Mom seasoned hers with salt and pepper and baked it in a beautiful sauce of white wine, chicken broth, apple cider vinegar, and green tarragon sprigs. Is your mouth watering yet?

Ok, let’s save some of that turkey for the sandwiches. We’ll also need to cook up bacon in a skillet. I used Oscar Mayer’s Select No Nitrite Bacon, and I’ll admit that I couldn’t stop myself from snacking on several strips of crispy bacon as I prepared the sandwiches.

Gluten Free Turkey, Bacon, Swiss Cheese Melt

First, we’ll need two slices of gluten-free sandwich bread. I love Udi’s as the bread is almost as light and fluffy as real white bread. Actually, I’ll take that back. It is real white bread, just sans wheat.

I spread one side of the slices with softened butter, and then let them grill in a pan with more butter to make those beautiful black grill lines. The bread ends up toasty on one side, and soft and chewy on the other.

Udi

Next, I prepared the special sauce. This is the secret ingredient that takes the sandwich to a whole new level. It’s really just an abridged version of Russian dressing: a little bit of mayonnaise and ketchup mixed in a bowl until pink and ready to spread on the bread slices.

Now we’ll need to return to our skillet. Take several pieces of turkey, layer them with bacon, and cover with strips of Swiss cheese. Cover the skillet and heat until the cheese is melted.

And finally we’re ready to build the sandwich: a beautiful hot, turkey sandwich for cold autumn afternoons. Spread the slices with the special sauce; add fresh lettuce; stuff with the turkey, bacon, and melted cheese; and don’t forget the juicy, red tomatoes!

If you want to give your taste buds an added treat, make sure to pair this sandwich with healthy organic pickle slices.

You may not be able to go back to ordinary turkey sandwiches after taking your first bite of this ultimate gluten-free turkey melt.

Enjoy!

Bacon Cheeseburger with Caramelized Onions and Peppers on a Gluten Free Bun

Bacon Cheeseburger with Caramelized Onions and Peppers on a Gluten Free Bun

Friday night is burger night here at our house. Last week I decided to add a creative twist to this old favorite by adding special toppings. One of my sons, who was visiting for the weekend, tasted this burger and exclaimed, “Wow, Mom what did you do to this burger? Seriously, it’s one of the best burgers I’ve ever had.”  That was quite a compliment since he lives in the big city and has frequented some of the best burger places in the world. My husband also couldn’t stop praising my new creation, a juicy bacon cheeseburger decked with sweet caramelized onions and peppers on a delicious gluten-free Canyon Bakehouse bun.

I have been making burgers for our family ever since our children were little. However, when my husband and two of my sons were diagnosed with celiac disease thirteen years ago, we could no longer enjoy them with hamburger buns. They still remained one of our weekly dinners, but without a bun they were not the same. After a long search, we finally discovered fluffy, gluten free Canyon Bakehouse buns sprinkled with sesame seeds. Excellent.

Now, topped with bacon and caramelized onions and peppers, our Friday night cheeseburgers have truly become extraordinary. Even better, I have begun serving grass fed burgers, which are not only delicious but also have many health benefits that you can read about here.

If you want to be a hit with your family, add this fast and easy burger recipe to your repertoire.

Bacon Cheeseburger with Caramelized Onions and Peppers on a Gluten Free Bun

Bacon Cheeseburger with Caramelized Onions and Peppers on a Gluten Free Bun:

Cook bacon and set aside.

Gluten Free Ham Tetrazzini

Ham Tetrazzini

 

On Sundays when company comes to visit the homestead, I often make a ham because it goes a long way and is always enjoyed by all. Sometimes there is enough leftovers to make a whole new meal the next day. I cut up the ham the night before and, in no more than 15 minutes, I can prepare gluten free ham tetrazzinni, ready to pop in the oven.

I prefer ham with no added nitrates or nitrites, no artificial ingredients or preservatives. You may find this one at Whole Foods.

Ham Tetrazzini

This dish is similar to my turkey tetrazzini except I doubled the mushrooms because my husband loves a lot of mushrooms and stirred in hearty cheddar cheese for a wonderful sauce. You may want to try Tinkyada spaghetti this time as I did. It is never mushy and tastes quite good.

Ham Tetrazzini

Recipe for Gluten Free Ham Tetrazzini:

Ingredients:

12 oz gluten free spaghetti, cook according to package directions
1 lb. mushrooms, sliced
1/4 cup + 3 1/2 tblsp. butter
1/2 cup Bob’s Red Mill gluten free all-purpose flour
2 cups gluten free chicken broth
2 1/2 cups of milk
2 tblsp. of sherry
3 cups leftover nitrite free ham, cut into bite size pieces
3 drops of lemon juice
3 pinches of nutmeg
1 tsp. salt
dash of pepper
1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese
1 cup gluten free panko breadcrumbs


Directions:

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Butter a 3 quart casserole dish.

Cook the mushrooms in 1 1/2 Tblsp. of the butter over medium heat, stirring, about 5 minutes. Set aside.

In a large, heavy saucepan, melt 1/4 cup of butter. Stir in the flour, and cook the mixture over low heat, whisking constantly for one minute. Remove from the heat.

Slowly whisk in the broth until smooth.

Then whisk in the milk and heat on a medium flame, whisking constantly, simmering for one minute. Then stir in the sherry and simmer for one more minute.

Remove from the heat. Season with lemon juice, nutmeg, salt and pepper to taste. Add the spaghetti, ham, cheddar cheese and mushrooms to the sauce and toss.

Transfer the entire mixture to the buttered casserole.

In a separate pan melt 2 tablespoons butter and then mix in 1 cup panko bread crumbs until the butter is thoroughly absorbed. Sprinkle the mixture evenly over the tetrazzini.

Bake uncovered on the middle rack of the oven until the sauce is bubbly and the top is golden, about 20 minutes. Then put under the broiler for 1 minute to brown the top a little bit more. Serves 6-8

Approximate preparation time: 15 minutes

Approximate cooking time: 20 minutes

Cheese Lover’s Zucchini Casserole

Cheese Lover's Zucchini Casserole

During our summer growing season we grew so many zucchinis in our vegetable garden, I found that I was serving them everyday.  So that my family would not get tired of eating this nutritious vegetable, I had to create a new zucchini recipe. After some experimentation, I came up with this one. It takes only minutes to assemble and bakes while you prepare the rest of the meal.

As a mom, I know that getting your kids to eat a vegetable dish can be difficult. Cheese Lover’s Zucchini Casserole gets the thumbs up here at the homestead every time. No wonder, it actually has a pizza-like taste!

Recipe for Cheese Lover’s Zucchini Casserole:

Ingredients:

2 tblsp.  olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
1 lb. zucchini, sliced
2 cups Shredded Mozzarella Cheese, divided
gluten free marinara sauce, homemade or jar
grated parmesan cheese

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400℉

Toss zucchini with olive oil. Then spread the zucchini slices on a baking dish, sprinkle with salt and pepper and roast until they are just starting to brown, about 10-15 minutes . Roasting the zucchini will keep the casserole from becoming watery.

 Cheese Lover's Zucchini Casserole

 

Turn oven down to 350℉

Spread 2 tablespoons of marinara sauce in bottom of a casserole dish .  Arrange one layer of zucchini over sauce,  sprinkle mozzarella and top with another layer of zucchini and then mozzarella cheese again.  Cover and bake for 25 minutes; remove cover and  bake 5 minutes more.

Gluten Free Toad In The Hole

Gluten Free Toad In The Hole

My husband always talks about this dish with a very funny name that his mom used to make when he was a child: Toad in the Hole. It is a very popular dish in Britain where his mom was from. No one knows exactly how it got its name though it is said that the sausage peeking out of the Yorkshire pudding is supposed to look like a toad.

Gluten Free Toad In The Hole

It reminds me of the character Mr. Toad of Toad Hall from Kenneth Grahame’s beloved children’s novel Wind In The Willows. It’s just the kind of dish Mr. Toad would have enjoyed after his madcap adventures in his motorcar around the English countryside. 

Indeed, this classic British dish of juicy sausages nestled in Yorkshire pudding makes for a seriously special dinner treat. Since today is my youngest son’s sixteenth birthday, it was the perfect occasion for a fun-filled meal. I decided to serve up a gluten free version of Toad in the Hole.

Yorkshire pudding with roast beef is one of the first recipes that I shared with you on the blog. But Toad in the Hole takes traditional Yorkshire pudding to a whole new level. It consists of a batter of eggs, flour and milk so I selected Bob’s Gluten Free All Purpose Flour. The sausages from Jones Dairy Farm are simply delicious. I doubled the recipe and made two pans because there are six of us (one I made in a cake pan). They were both devoured straight away, no leftovers.

I am not sure which I loved more: the spicy, savory Toad in the Hole or the creamy homemade onion gravy. This birthday dinner was truly out of this world.

Gluten Free Toad In The Hole

Recipe for Gluten Free Toad In The Hole:

Ingredients:

1 package Jones gluten free sausage
1½ cups Bob’s Red Mill GF All Purpose Baking Flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
2 eggs
1¼ cups milk
2 tblsps. oil

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400℉

Cook gf sausages in a skillet according to package directions. Then remove sausages to a plate and keep warm.

Gluten Free Toad In The Hole

Add 2 tablespoons of oil to the skillet. Place skillet in the oven for 5 minutes. 

Meanwhile, beat eggs on low speed of electric mixer for 1/2 minute. Add milk; beat 15 seconds. Add gf flour and salt and beat 2 minutes more until smooth. 

Pour batter over hot drippings in pan. Add sausages.

Gluten Free Toad In The Hole

Bake about 30 minutes. Meanwhile prepare onion gravy according to recipe below.

Cut into slices and smother in gravy.

Gluten Free Toad In The Hole

Recipe for Gluten Free Onion Gravy:

Ingredients:

2 tblsp. butter
1 onion, chopped
pepper to taste
2 tblsp. Bob’s Red Mill GF All Purpose Baking Flour
1 cup beef stock
1 tsp. Gravy Master
1/2 tsp. salt

Directions:

Heat 2 tablespoons of butter in a skillet. Add onion, sprinkle with pepper, and cook until the onions start to brown, about 10 minutes.

Stir in 2 tablespoons of gf flour until the mixture is thick and smooth. Continue to stir and slowly brown the flour over a low heat for 5 minutes.

Then add stock, Gravy Master and salt. Whisk and simmer so that the gravy stays smooth while it thickens, about 2 minutes. 

Serves 4

Stir Fry Chicken And A Classic Film

Stir Fry Chicken Prior to "Gone With The Wind" Anniversary Screening

This stir fry chicken is all Scarlett O’Hara’s fault. Let me explain.

If there is one thing that my family loves, it’s movies, especially the classics. I remember my mom and grandmother talking about their favorite films when I was a child. Of course, back then movie theaters rarely showed re-runs of older films so I never got a chance to see them until Turner Classic Movies (TCM) began showing them on cable T.V. in the mid 1990s. My family loves watching these classics together (since we are seeing them for the first time, they seem like new movies) and looking up the biographies of the actors to learn more about their lives off the screen. I guess you would say we are film buffs.

Stir Fry Chicken And A Classic Film

Last week we had the opportunity to see Gone With The Wind at our local movie theatre. For myself and the kids, it was our first time seeing the film on the big screen. My husband remembers seeing it in his neighborhood theatre back in 1967 when he was in grade school. He had been amazed and couldn’t wait to share this experience with us.

TCM released this special showing in honor of the epic film’s 75th anniversary celebration. It had been fully remastered with a specially produced introduction by TCM host Robert Osborne. Watching the sizzling romance between Rhett Butler (Clark Gable) and Scarlett O’Hara (Vivien Leigh) unfold with all the amazing sets, special effects, beautiful costumes and memorable lines, kept us riveted the entire time. I always feel a little more hopeful after seeing this film. Don’t you?

Gluten? Ha! ”As God is my witness, I’ll never be hungry again.” Worries? “I can’t think about that right now. If I do, I’ll go crazy. I’ll think about that tomorrow.”

But show time was 7:00 which is our usual dinnertime, and we had a tight schedule. We planned to pick up my older son at the train station (even though he has moved out, he wasn’t going to miss joining us for this event). Above all, we wanted to arrive at the theatre early enough to get good seats and warm buttered popcorn.

Stir Fry Chicken And A Classic Film

I had to get a quick dinner on the table early because we wouldn’t be getting out of the theatre until 11:00. It’s a four-hour film.

The solution?

This one-pot stir fry chicken would be nourishing and quick with lots of vegetables, gluten free tamari sauce, and tender chicken. I would only have to marinate the chicken for 15 minutes and could easily serve it over rice from the previous night’s Chinese take-out. How convenient.

Frankly my dear, this simple stir fry hit the spot. I think Scarlett and Rhett would have approved. Here is the recipe for the next time you need a meal in a snap.

 

Stir Fry Chicken And A Classic Film

 

Recipe for Stir Fry Chicken:

Ingredients:
2/3 cup gluten free Tamari sauce
1 g stevia
1 tblsp. Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose flour
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2-2 lbs. thin sliced chicken breast, cut into bite-size pieces
2 tblsps. olive oil, divided
1/2 lb. broccoli florets
1-2 carrots, sliced
1 onion, chopped

Directions:
Combine gf tamari sauce, stevia, and gf flour in a small bowl and stir until smooth. Add garlic, and pour over chicken to marinate. Cover and refrigerate for 15 minutes.

Heat oil over a medium high heat in your wok or large skillet. Add broccoli, carrots, and onion. Cook and stir until tender, about 5 minutes. Remove vegetables and set aside.

Remove chicken from marinade, reserving marinade. Heat 1 more tablespoon of oil in wok over medium-high heat. Cook and stir chicken, about 2 minutes per side. Bite-size pieces of chicken cook very quickly. Return vegetables and reserved marinade and bring to a boil. Continue to cook about 5 more minutes. Serve over rice. Serves 6

Approximate preparation time: 15 minutes

Gluten Free Sole Meunière

Gluten Free Sole Meunière

My husband is not a big fish eater, but he does have a few favorite fish dishes and gluten free sole meunière is one of them. I am glad because fish is so good for you and I’m always looking to add more seafood dishes.

The French word “meunière” means “miller’s wife” and refers to the way the fish is dredged in flour before cooking. Hence those with a gluten sensitivity cannot order this classic dish when dining out. By swapping the flour for gluten free all purpose flour, you can prepare this simple rustic dish at home.

I hope you love this as much as we do.

Gluten Free Sole Meunière

Recipe for Gluten Free Sole Meunière:

Ingredients:
1/2 cup Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose flour
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
4 sole fillets (3-4 ounces each)
6 tblsps. butter, divided
6 tablsps. + 1/4 cup juice of fresh lemons
1 tsp. parsley

Directions:

Step 1. Rinse and pat the sole fillets dry with paper towels and sprinkle one side with salt.

Step 2. Combine gf flour, 2 teaspoons of salt, and 1 teaspoon of pepper in a shallow bowl. Dredge sole fillets in the seasoned flour.

Step 3. Heat 3 tablespoons of butter in a large (12-inch) skillet over medium heat until it starts to brown. Add 2 floured fillets and cook until golden on bottom, 2 to 3 minutes. Carefully turn fish over and cook until opaque in center and golden on bottom, about 2 more minutes. While the second side cooks,  add 3 tablespoons of lemon juice  to the pan. 

Step4. Carefully transfer fish filets to a plate and pour sauce from the skillet over the fish. Sprinkle with  parsley, salt, and pepper.

Keep warm while you repeat steps 3 and 4 with the remaining 2 floured fillets.  

Step 5. For extra sauce, add 1/4 cup of lemon juice to the skillet, stir, scraping up the little bits.  Serve sauce on the side. Serves 2

Approximate preparation time: 5 minutes
Approximate cook time: 10 minutes
