Sweet onions are in season and this Squash Vidalia Onion Casserole is a long time favorite side dish of mine, using those delicious onions and yellow squash. I made this all the time before I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease but after my diagnosis I couldn’t find gluten free cream of chicken soup so I went a couple of years without making it. Recently though I found this Pacific Organic Cream of Chicken Soup at Publix. It’s perfect my gluten-free friends!
So, we’ve enjoyed this delicious side dish a couple of times already this summer!
3 1/2 lbs Yellow Squash chopped
6 med. Vidalia Onions chopped (or other sweet onion)
1/2 stick butter
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste (But I’ll tell you, I use a LOT of pepper)
*Gluten-Free*1 box of Pacific Organic Cream of Chicken Condensed Soup or 1 can regular cream of chicken soup
3 cups sharp cheddar cheese
2 eggs beaten lightly
8 slices of bacon – cooked crispy and chopped fine
*Cook squash, onion, butter, salt and pepper until squash & onion are done.
*Drain squash and onion well…
*Combine remaining ing. and mix with squash and onion.
*Put in a 9×13 and bake at 350* for 30-40 minutes or until bubbly.
And one more ‘head’s-up’ for my buds with Celiac Disease or gluten sensitivity, a company called Three Bakers sent me two loaves of their gluten-free bread to try. They told me there was no pressure to say anything about their bread, they just wanted me to give it a try.
Jane Trygar and her (Master Baker) husband worked with her father in the family business, a bakery, for years until Jane got sick and was eventually diagnosed with Celiac Disease in 2002. She and her husband have since developed recipes for gluten free breads, rolls and pizza.
They sent me 7 Ancient Grains Bread and White Bread, both gluten free and dairy free…wow…I mean seriously…wow.
I love sandwiches and the 7 Ancient Grain bread was amazingly hearty with my chicken salad and turkey and cheese! I enjoyed the white bread toasted with my weekly omelet. I fell in love with this bread, but the real test came when we ran out of bread for The Husband. It was omelet night and I decided I wouldn’t tell him that his toast was gluten free/dairy free. He ate the first piece and said: “this bread is really good, it’s different…crunchy on the outside but soft in the middle. Did you put something different on it before you toasted it?”
He couldn’t believe it when I told him he was eating gluten free/dairy free bread!
That’s the ultimate test peeps, if a gluten eating hungry man likes the bread, it’s a winner!
If you have Celiac Disease or gluten sensitivity, you’ve gotta try this bread! I haven’t tried the buns or rolls but I absolutely will!
Remember, Three Bakers didn’t ask me to give them an endorsement and I wouldn’t have mentioned getting the bread if I didn’t like it…but considering I loved it, how could I NOT tell you!?
Have a delicious day my friends
