Gluten-Free Cooking: Two Failures and One Success!

My experiment with homemade biscuits using the gluten-free all-purpose baking mix didn’t turn out so well.  I’ve tried them twice now.  The first time, I used my tried and true biscuit recipe substituting the mix for the flour.  The biscuits were edible, but they were not pretty and they were very dry and crumbly.  I tried again, adding more butter and flour, with only slightly better results.  In case you’re wondering, the failures were too awful to be photographed!

Now, for the success…

My friend Heidi, who blogs at, shared this with me.  This yummy gluten-free dish can be enjoyed for breakfast, lunch, or dinner:

Heidi’s Weirdly Pizza-like Omelet

6 eggs
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
garlic salt
optional toppings:  cheeses, meats, and veggies  (Yesterday, she added chicken sausage and it was delicious!)

Mix above ingredients and pour into a buttered non-stick skillet.  (Adjust number of eggs to fit your pan size.)  
Cook on low temp., covered, until firm (about 10 minutes). 
Flip out on to a baking sheet and top with your favorite cheeses and meats/veggies. 
Broil, just until melted and bubbly.
