It is always nice to make something great tasting that is also economical. But sometimes, if you spend a little more on a few quality ingredients, you can improve the value and quality of what you are cooking. Here's a list of some of my favorites, and all of them have multiple uses and come in a package that will enable you to make more than one recipe, too.
Whether coating a chicken breast for frying or topping a cassarole for extra crunch, Glutino's gluten-free breadcrumbs can hold their own in a hot oven and hot oil.
These crumbs don't get soggy, and with some additional herbs like garlic powder, salt, and pepper, they make an addition to your recipes that is easy and delicious.
Kirkland Organic Olive Oil
Test after culinary test has found that Costco's Kirkland brand of extra virgin olive oil is a pure original. When eating olive oil directly on a salad (in a dressing) or baking a gluten-free bread, nothing tastes and performs better than the real deal that Kirkland EVOO is.
The Original Cracklebred
Crackers for appetizers and snacks can be expensive when you need them to be gluten-free. But, the old original Cracklebred is still being made by Natural Nectar, and it is carried by WalMart. For a reasonable price, this favorite can be purchased and kept on the shelf for midnight snacking - or when company comes.
Rotel Original Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies
Ever want to give scrambled eggs some extra zing? Company stop by and you have nothing in the house but some cheese and chips? Grab a can of Original Rotel off your pantry shelf. Use a spoonful on eggs, or microwave some Rotel and cheese for a gooey dip for those corn chips. Yum!
