Gluten Free Breakfast, Brunch & Beyond
by Linda J. Amendt
Breakfast is the favorite meal of the day for millions of Americans, but
those with a gluten intolerance are out of luck, since many breakfast foods and
baked items have been banned from their diet. They must find gluten-free
alternatives or go without. For the rising number of Americans who are choosing
to follow a gluten-free diet as a healthy lifestyle and for parents
experimenting with gluten-free recipes for their families, they, too, are having
to do without.
That disappointment will no longer be the case. In Gluten-Free
Breakfast, Brunch & Beyond, home cooks will discover a variety of
gluten-free recipes for their family’s favorite breakfast foods. From light
quick breads, muffins, biscuits and scones to tasty pancakes, waffles, coffee
cakes and sweet rolls, this collection of 100 recipes will bring breakfast back
to the gluten-free table. A tantalizing array of frittatas, quiches, and
breakfast casseroles are perfect for any meal of the day. The recipes in
Gluten-Free Breakfast, Brunch & Beyond are quick and easy to make and yield
delicious, satisfying results.
Recipes for homemade all-purpose flour, crepe
batter, pancake batter, sweet roll dough, and biscuit dough will give every
gluten-free cook the basics for creating delicious dishes of their own.
addition to great recipes, Gluten-Free Breakfast, Brunch & Beyond will
provide cooks with the information they need about gluten-free ingredients,
including ingredients to include—and avoid--in their diet and preparing and
measuring ingredients. Each recipe chapter will begin with tips to help home
cooks create great-tasting gluten-free breakfast specialties to serve from
morning to night.

This book has pretty much everything you will ever need in terms of recipes for breakfast or brunch. Gluten free or not, these recipes are easy to follow and taste great. I was impressed by the quality of the photography, as well as the sheer number of recipes available in this book. It covers quick breads and muffins, biscuits and scones, waffles and French toast, coffee cakes, yeast breads and sweet rolls, frittatas and omelets, quiches, and savory stratas.
I found this cookbook to be simple to follow. The recipes don't have huge lists of ingredients, or complicated flour blends of items that no one has ever heard of. They're short, simple to follow, and taste like real food. Most recipes have under 10 ingredients, which is pretty good when making baked goods. There are recipes in here to please just about everyone, from kid-friendly muffins to more sophisticated stratas and scones.
I have to admit that I'm not always the most imaginative when it comes to breakfast foods, especially on busy mornings, so I found these recipes to be particularly useful for my family. Gluten free baking is often intimidating for people, but this cookbook takes the guesswork out of it with easy recipes that are suitable even for beginners.
I received a complimentary copy of this title from NetGalley & the publisher in return for an honest review.
