We love Udis Gluten Free Foods and have since day one. Recently we were given the opportunity toparticipate in their What The Hack food hacks and it took a lot of thinking of ways to do such a task! We aren’t creative but gave it our best and have asked our Facebook fans to help with ideas and hope you’ll enjoy our hacks.This one was a simple garden salad with crushed Ancient Grain Crisps aged cheddar & sea salt flavours.
We also blended the Crisps with gluten-free spices to use as a batter or shake & bake. We simply dipped our chicken in egg and placed it in a bag with the breading blend, shook to coat and baked at 350° for 30-45 minutes. We also decided to do this with meatballs which turned out to be a huge hit.
A Twitter friend who happens to write gluten-free cookbooks, shared a way to make our own tortilla chips using wraps and we thought they’d be great with many different spices and coatings such as sugar & cinnamon, garlic, onion salt, chives… Let your taste-buds and imagination be the creator and the possibilities are endless.
- Cut Udis Gluten Free Tortillas into chip size pieces. It’s suggested you brush both sides with vegetable oil but we just poured some over top and tossed it a bit.
- Add your salt or spices and toss again or simply sprinkle it on after laying them in a single layer on a baking sheet.
- Bake at 350° F for 4-6 minutes, flip and bake for another 4-6 minutes.
For a simple yet delicious dessert we cut the top off of Udis Lemon Streusel Muffins. Then we carved out the middle and used it to make a Lemon Streusel Strawberry Shortcake. We used the leftover pieces from the middle as a crumble so that it didn’t go to waste.
We really wanted to find a unique hack for our cinnamon raisin bread and decided to turn to Google for ideas and came up with a Cinnamon Raisin Bread Cake With home-made Caramel Sauce that was tweaked to our liking.
1 cup brown sugar
2.5 cups milk
3-4 tbsp. butter
Pinch of salt (1/4 tsp roughly)
1-2 tsp. vanilla extract (GF)
1 loaf Udis gluten-free cinnamon raisin bread
Pinch of nutmeg
Pinch of cinnamon
Handful of sultana raisins
Cut the bread into smaller pieces. Place the bread on a cookie sheet in the oven at 200°F to dry it out a bit. Mix eggs, sugar, butter, salt, nutmeg, cinnamon and milk together. Add vanilla & raisins and stir.
Place the dried bread in a baking dish and pour the liquid mixture over top allowing it to sit for a few minutes. Sprinkle with cinnamon for garnish and bake for 60 minutes at 325°F. For the topping we used a basic caramel sauce with brown sugar, butter, vanilla and evaporated milk.
We love garlic bread and often use our hamburger buns from Udis instead of bread and decided to go with something simple as well and made Pizza Buns. This is a favourite of ours as it’s easy and the kids can help too!
