Gluten Free Croutons Anyone?

No comments
We made these delicious croutons on the weekend!  It was simple and not as expensive as you might think

Okay, so you think i'm lying right?  Not as expensive?  How can that be?  Gluten free bread is always expensive.  I won't argue with you there.  It is, and these croutons were not as cheap as regular croutons, but I certainly didn't pay full price.

Basically, you are drying out the bread, so you don't need the freshest stuff.  We went to Superstore to their bread rack and bought a package of 30% reduced gluten free hotdog buns that were about to expire off the shelf.  You can do this with any type of gluten free bread.

When I took it home, this is what I did:
  • Set the oven to 250 degrees
  • Spread some garlic butter made with margarine, garlic and Italian seasoning.  Because these were buns, I sliced the buns first.
  • Cubed the season bread.
  • Spread on a baking sheet
  • Drizzled with extra virgin olive oil
  • Put in oven for 10 minutes, then checked periodically until golden.
  • Turned off the oven, and let stand in oven for another 10 minutes.
Now we are all ready for some gluten free Cesar salad with the Renees gluten free Cesar dressing we love!

You can score big at Planet Organic.  I know that first off you are probably going to say "Planet Organic? But it is so expensive!".  I am certainly not going to dispute that.  But I want to make a couple things clear:
  1. As you can see from these photos, they do have sales, so you can actually get good deals
  2. They have a loyalty program so you can earn stuff!
  3. The more you shop there, and the more you buy, the more incentive they have to stock more gluten free products.
  4. They have an amazing variety of gluten free products in ONE STORE that you won't see at a Wal-Mart or Superstore.
  5. They are a local Edmonton business

Here is some of the stuff we saw at a recent visit to the recently renovated Jasper Ave. location (which by the way, has free underground parking!)

Udi's gluten free frozen single meals!  

These are amazing gluten free peanut butter and jelly snacks.  We bought them previously at a store in Toronto.  We have never seen these anywhere else in the city.

We love the gluten free Bakery on Main cereal, and have bought it at other store.  However, we have never seen their oatmeal before!

Amanda previously bought these individual instant oatmeals in the United States and have never seen them here in Edmonton until our visit to Planet Organic

Don't like Bob's Red Mill?  There is another option for instant gluten free oatmeal!  Although Gluten Freeda has sponsored some local events in the past, I have never seen these anywhere in Edmonton, until our visit to Planet Organic

These little byte size gluten free treats looked delicious.

Dufflet started as a trendy bakery in Toronto.  They now have obviously grown and got into gluten free cakes (certified).  We have never seen these outside of Toronto.

We tried these yummy gluten free fig newtons from Pamela's.  Awesome stuff.  Others have said they've seen them at other stores too.

Lots of gluten free pizza options!  Judy G's is usually just found in the east.

Some new Nature's Path gluten free waffles.  Careful, not all of their stuff is gluten free.

   Gluten free burrito's!
