Cheesy Garlic Herb Bread Sticks

Cheesy Garlic Herb Bread Sticks

1 Cup Almond Flour 

1/2 Teaspoon Xanthan Gum

1 Teaspoon Baking Powder

1/2 Teaspoon Baking soda

 

1 Teaspoon dry Oregano

2 Teaspoon dry Basil

1 Teaspoon dry Thyme

2 Teaspoons Garlic Powder

 

1/2 stick Butter, melted (1/4 Cup)

1/4 cup Greek Yogurt

4 Duck Eggs ( 5 regular chicken eggs)

 

1 Cup freshly grated Cheddar Cheese

1 Cup freshly grated Mozzarella Cheese

1 Cup freshly grated Parmesan Cheese

 

Preheat oven to 350*

 

In a medium size mixing bowl whisk together all dry ingredients including herbs and garlic powder. In another bowl whisk melted butter, yogurt and eggs until well blended. Pour all liquid ingredients into dry ingredients and blend until smooth. Then fold in all of the cheese and incorporate thoroughly. This should make a stiff ball of dough. Grease large pizza pan or sheet pan with butter and roll out dough onto pan. If you are using a pizza pan with no sides only roll out to within 2 inches of the edge. As the cheese melts the dough will spread and run over the side of pan if it is too close to the edge. Bake for 20-25 min. or until bread sticks are set and turning brown. Then remove from oven slice bread sticks into 1- 2 inch widths and place under broiler for 1-2 minutes or until well browned on top. Serve warm. Enjoy!

 

Holiday Meal Prep Continued!

IMG_1491

Since I can’t have a lot of the chemicals and gluten that is in many of the bottled salad dressings, I make my own. So today I’m working on the Salad Dressings I use on my Salads for the Holidays. If you make them now it helps the flavors to blend with the oils so much better! I use this one on my Frito Salad!

Jan’s GF Catalina Dressing

This dressing just literally bursts with FLAVOR!
½ Cup White Vinegar
3/8 Cup GF Thick Tomato Sauce
1 Cup Canola Oil
½ Cup White Granulated Sugar
2 Teaspoons Salt
1 Teaspoon Additive Free Paprika
½ Teaspoon Original Williams Chili Seasoning
1 Teaspoon Additive Celery Flakes
½ Teaspoon Additive Free Dry Mustard
1 ½ Tablespoons Additive Free Onion Powder
I like to use my smoothie maker or juicer attachment on my blender to make this, it grinds up the spices really fine. Or you can use the blender. Pour all liquid ingredients in first, then add dry ingredients and blend until all dissolved. Pour into pint jar, or air tight container, put lid on, and store in refrigerator. Shake before each use. Enjoy!

 

Beef with Sour Cream Herb Sauce

Beef with sourcream herb sauce

Beef with Sour Cream Herb Sauce

1 Pound Lean Ground Beef

2 Chopped Green Onions (or scallions)

2 Tablespoons Fresh Chopped Oregano

1 Tablespoon Fresh Chopped Parsley

3 Tablespoons Gluten Free Worchester Sauce

1/2 Cup Sour Cream

1 Cup Warm Water

2 Tablespoons Gluten Free all-purpose Flour

1/2 Teaspoon Salt

In medium skillet brown ground beef on medium high heat. When beef has lost almost all of the pink, then add onions and herbs. Raise the heat slightly and stir to break up any large clumps until beef is completely brown. Then turn off heat and let set until you get the sauce ready. In small mixing bowl, whisk together sour cream, water, flour and salt. Turn heat back on under skillet to medium high, then pour sauce mixture over meat and stir until thick. Remove from heat and serve warm over Gluten free pasta. Enjoy!

Note: If you use dry herbs only use half the amount.

Greek Meat Loaf with My Homemade Greek Seasoning

My Thyme and Sage Plants                                  Greek Meatloaf

Greek Meatloaf

2 Pounds Ground Pork ( or Ground Turkey)

1/2 Cup Gluten Free Bread Crumbs ( you can also use Gluten Free Oats)

1 Large Egg

1/2 Cup Greek Seasoning

Preheat oven to 375*

Place ground meat in large mixing bowl, add bread crumbs, egg, and seasoning. I just get into it with my hands and mix all ingredients well. Pour meat mixture into a lightly greased 9×9 inch glass baking pan and bake for 35-40 minutes or until meat is cooked through. If you use ground turkey you may want to brown the top under the broiler for 2-3 minutes before serving.  Serve plain or with dipping sauce.

Jan’s Greek Seasoning Mix

1/4 Cup Dried Ground (or Rubbed) Sage

1/4 Cup Dried Thyme Leaves

1/4 Cup Dried Basil Leaves

1/4 Cup Garlic Powder

1/4 Cup Onion Powder

3/4 Cup Dried Oregano Leaves

2 Tablespoons Dried Rosemary Leaves

4 Teaspoons Paprika

4 Teaspoons Black Ground Pepper

4 Teaspoons Salt

Add all ingredients to spice blender or regular food processor. Blend just until mixed. I would rather not grind this into a powder, we like the larger size leaves. I think it adds more flavor.
