Mrs. Dude’s Gluten-Free Recipes

mrs dude recipes

Mrs. Dude seriously does not give herself enough credit in the kitchen. Whenever she whips up something amazing for me, I always ask her how she made it. Her response is pretty much always the same: “Oh…it’s so easy.” Then she tells me…and I immediately forget. Well now, she is sharing her culinary skills with all of us. Lucky us!

Gluten-Free Baked Apples
Fine...they're actually broiled, not baked, but baked sounds so much better in the title. This one is as easy, healthy and delicious as it gets.

  2. Honey (preferably raw and organic)
  3. Ground All Spice
  4. Ground Nutmeg
  5. Ground Cinnamon

  1. Mix all of the ingredients together in an oven-safe dish (your call as to how much to use of each)
  2. Broil for 10 minutes (mixing them every few minutes)
  3. Seriously...that's it

Dani's Pretzel Chicken
Cooking is not my favorite thing to do. Eating yes, but cooking not so much. I try to stick with easy things to whip up and use whole foods as much as possible. This recipe does call for pretzels which has more ingredients than I would typically use. This recipe came from my good friend Dani. We were power walking one morning and I asked her for some ideas. This one is super easy and a hit!
Write a review
  1. Chicken tenderloins
  2. 2 eggs
  3. 1/4 cup almond milk or milk of your choice
  4. Gluten free pretzels (we like Snyder's buffalo or honey mustard flavor)
  5. Olive oil
  1. Wash and dry chicken.
  2. Beat eggs and add almond milk.
  3. Soak chicken in egg/milk for ten minutes
  4. Make bread crumbs out of pretzels. (I stick mine in the blender.)
  5. Coat chicken in bread crumbs.
  6. Put in baking dish that is coated with olive oil.
  7. Drizzle olive oil over chicken.
  8. Bake 350 for 20 minutes. Flip halfway through.

    Very Nice! It looks delicious Mrs Dude.
    And it’s so less labor intensive than traditional risotto.
    Well done.

    Made this for dinner last night, and everyone here enjoyed it very much. I look forward to adding it to our regular rotation and trying different veg combos.

    The pretzel chicken looks good, and a good way to use up some of the eggs that my fridge always seems to be so full of!

    Just a comment on the first step, “Wash and dry chicken.” There was a news story earlier this year that washing chicken is unnecessary and maybe even hazardous. Apparently tap water doesn’t kill bacteria, so any water drops that splash away from the chicken will take some of the bacteria with it. They could end up on nearby kitchen surfaces, where other food might be placed (not entirely unlike how gluten CC might happen, come to think of it).

    Whatever bacteria the chicken has, the oven/stove is hot enough to kill it all. Not washing saves time, too — we could all use more of that!

    Mrs. Dude,

    I LOVE salmon, fillet, steaks, burgers, so…..

    Question: do you use a food processor to chop the salmon fillet and then mix the balance of the ingredients?

    Keep the recipes comin`

    Warm GF regards.

    I have read that store bought chicken and beef broth are not permitted. What brand do you use, if you don’t mind sharing?
