Gluten Free Bread Crumbs


Just because you’re on a gluten-free diet doesn’t mean you can’t use recipes that call for bread crumbs. I have come up with various alternatives. It’s fun to mix-and-match them. Experiment and see which flavors you like with various meats. I’ve used these with pork, chicken, fish, and in meatloaf. When you are using this as breading, add in some Mrs. Dash or other spices to add flavor.

Choose from the following, depending on your family’s tolerance:

  • Rice Chex
  • Corn Chex
  • Gluten-free pretzels
  • Glutino gluten-free bagel chips
  • Enjoy Life Plentils
  • Potato Chips
  • and of course, gluten-free toasted bread crumbled

The therapeutic part is smashing them all up in a freezer bag to make them crumb size (A regular baggie will not be strong enough to withstand the smashing.). You can even get your kids in on the action! If you have folks that are sensitive to texture, you may have to skip the smashing and put these things in a food processor for a finer crumb.

I’m sure there are other ideas out there. What do YOU use for gluten-free bread crumbs? Leave an idea in the comments below!

  1. GREAT post! Thanks for this! 🙂

  2. Great GF ideas. I am always looking for new ways to prepare our meals (we are gluten, casein, soy, egg, peanut, and partly oat free) as it can get mundane.

  3. Great bread crumb alternatives! I have two children who are gluten/casein/yeast-free so I really have to avoid all types of bread (except unleavened)…I’ve been using the food processor to grind up Gluten-free Rice Krispies, but you’ve given me some more ideas. Thanks!
