Today we are talking about Udi’s Gluten Free Products. I was sent a huge variety of their wonderful products to try and to cook with. You can also be as lucky as me, as I have a giveaway for you too!!
It used to be so difficult to be completely gluten free, it meant making all of your bread products and so many of them don’t turn out, they are too dry or tasteless. Udi’s is changing that for so many that are Celiac or gluten intolerant or just want to reduce the amount of gluten they are consuming. 8 in 10 Canadians who reduce or cut gluten claim they feel healthier, happier and more energetic.
Udi’s Healthy Foods LLC (Udi’s) is a leader in the fast growing market for gluten-free foods in North America. Udi’s markets a diversified and growing range of gluten-free products under the well-recognized Udi’s Gluten Free Foods brand in the retail market, and since mid-2011, food service channels. Udi’s Gluten Free Foods is a leading brand in gluten-free bread and bakery products. In addition, Udi’s markets other gluten-free products in the frozen pizza and granola categories.
They have a wide range of products from muffins (my fav) to cinnamon buns, breads, hot dog buns, hamburg buns, tortillas and more. I had to try to think up a recipe. Right away my brain went to a savory bread pudding. Something you could serve at Thanksgiving with the traditional trimmings or with a roast beef and all the fixins. I was concerned that the bread would turn out mushy without the gluten but it was absolutely fabulous. I used Udi’s hamburg buns for this recipe and they were perfect. The pudding was crunchy, crispy and delicious on the top with a smoother, savory under crust. The mix of veggies and cheese grouped so lovely together enhancing the entire dish.
The dish is cheerful looking on any Thanksgiving, Christmas or holiday table
I love placing fresh tomatoes on top of a casserole, not only is it delicious but also so pretty.
As you can see this bread pudding was devoured!!! You would never even know this dish is gluten free!!
- 4 Udi’s Hamburg buns, cubed
- Cooking spray
- 2 Tbsp. olive oil
- 4 oz. cremini mushrooms, thickly sliced
- ½ onion, diced
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- ½ green pepper, diced
- ½ tsp. each oregano, basil and thyme
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 cup provolone, small cubes
- 6 eggs, beaten
- 1 cup milk
- ½ cup Parmesan, grated
- Parsley for garnish
- 12 grape tomatoes, halved
- Preheat oven to 375F. Place cubed hamburg buns on a rimmed baking sheet and toast lightly in the oven for 8-10 min., watch carefully. Remove to a large bowl.
- Spray a 9 x 13″ baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.
- In a large skillet heat oil over medium high heat. Saute onion, garlic, green pepper and mushrooms for 1 min. Add in oregano, basil, thyme, salt and pepper to taste. Continue to saute until the veggies are tender.
- Toss the veggies with the bread and add the provolone. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.
- In a small bowl whisk the eggs with the milk. Pour over the bread mixture and fold to incorporate. Pour into the prepared dish. Sprinkle the top with Parmesan and bake for 35-45 min. or until browned on top and the pudding has set. You may need to foil in the last 10 min. if it is browning too quickly. Remove from oven and let sit for a minute or two to cool slightly. Top with tomatoes and parsley. Cut into squares to serve.
