F for Flour blend
Back to the Gluten Free 101 book. I can’t say enough about this book, because the baked goods are all based on a basic flour blend. Oh, you can alter the flour according to your needs, but the basic blend is the base for a lot of wonderful recipes. Even the basic bread recipe contains the basic flour blend.
Bagels, biscuits, breads, cookies, muffins, and cakes! OH MY! Lemon bars your favorite? Then the blend is in there, too. Pie crust? No Problem! Cherry, Peach or Pumpkin? This book isn’t only the Holy Grail of GF sweets, the flour blend is even the base for the Chicken-Fried Steak & Gravy recipe.
Don’t have time for a make ahead flour blend? That’s okay. Tonight’s dinner was my version of the recipe that’s been swimming around Facebook the last couple of weeks. Pizza Lasagna Casserole. I used Bisquick’s GF Baking Mix. The box includes changes for pancakes, pizza dough and biscuits. I used the pizza dough suggestions and used the whole box. Want to spice it up, I used Italian. Although not in the ingredients list, the warning label on the Bisquick box does say “May include soy”. You choose.
I sprayed a bundt pan with coconut spray, dropped spoons full of dough, then alternated with Wild Oats marinara sauce, pizza cheese and turkey pepperoni. (Although the pepperoni did contain nitrates. I cannot win them all.)
Cook on 400 degrees for 25 minutes. Serve warm. Throw a bag of Caesar salad on the table (because you have a child with a weird iceberg lettuce allergy. Again, don’t try to put dressing on the Caesar, because it all has soybean oil). Watch disappear. Quickly!
