Gluten-Free Flatbread with Roasted Vegetables by Gordon Ramsay


Gluten free pizza flatbread recipe

Looking for an easy, healthy, casual supper this weekend? Something tasty for movie night- or a play-off game? I’ve gotcha covered. With a perennial family favorite.

A lovely gluten-free flatbread, baked with savory herbs and garlic, topped with lots of gorgeous Italian style roasted veggies. 

Sprinkle with goat cheese (or your favorite Italian blend of cheeses) and drizzle with your best extra virgin olive oil.

There won’t be a scrap left over.

Millet flour gives this chewy Italian flatbread a delicate nutty flavor. I also add plenty of minced onion, garlic and dried herbs to the dough to kick it up. Why not?

Ingredients:

1 cup GF millet flour (or brown rice flour)

1 cup sorghum flour

1/2 cup tapioca starch (tapioca starch gives it a crusty bite)

1/2 cup potato starch (not potato flour)

1 teaspoon sea salt

1 tablespoon minced onion

2 teaspoons minced garlic

1 teaspoon chopped rosemary

1 teaspoon thyme

2 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast

5 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon honey or raw organic agave nectar

1/4 teaspoon light, mild vinegar

1 cup hot water (115 degrees F)

Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 400ºF. Lightly oil a large round pizza pan or baking sheet and dust it with a little cornmeal or rice flour.

In a large mixing bowl whisk the millet flour, sorghum flour and starches with salt, onion, garlic, herbs and yeast. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the olive oil, honey, vinegar and hot water. Mix with a wooden spoon until you get a dough that is more like a thick cake batter than a standard flatbread dough. It will be wet and sticky.

Scoop out the dough onto the prepared baking pan and using hands shape and press the dough into an even, flat round (or rectangular) shape. Smooth with wet fingers. Set the dough aside to rest and roast your vegetables.

Cut up an assortment of your favorite seasonal vegetables and toss them into a bowl. We used red onion, yellow pepper, Baby Bella mushrooms, asparagus, and grape tomatoes. Add chopped garlic and Italian herbs like thyme, oregano, basil, marjoram. Season with sea salt and pepper. If you like it hot, toss in a few red pepper flakes. Drizzle with a little olive oil and toss the vegetables to coat. Dump them into a roasting pan (or on to a baking sheet) and spread them out in an even layer.

Bake in the center of the hot oven for 15 to 20 minutes until tender crisp. They don’t have to be completely cooked, just softened a bit.

Remove the pan from the oven and lower the oven temperature to 375 degrees F.

Brush the flatbread with a drizzle of olive oil and sprinkle some sea salt over the top. Pre-bake the crust for about 7 to 10 minutes. You want to be somewhat firm and no longer sticky.

Remove the pan from the oven and spoon the roasted veggies all over the flatbread. Return the pan to the oven and bake until the dough is firm and slightly crisp. In my oven it was done after 18 minutes.

Slice with a pizza cutter and serve hot or at room temperature.

Add fresh chopped herbs just before serving- parsley, basil, mint, rosemary or cilantro.

Great picnic food- serve as an appetizer with tapenade or pesto hummus

Top with balsamic roasted veggies and goat cheese..

Makes 6 generous slices.

ALFREDO TWICE BAKED POTATOES – Butter with a Side of Bread by Gordon Ramsay


Alfredo Twice Baked Potatoes are the perfect side dish for any meal! We love baked potatoes and they are even better when you add alfredo sauce and two different kinds of cheese!

We eat a lot of baked potatoes at my house, mostly because my kids are picky eaters and this is one food that is plain enough to please everyone! I recently saw this idea for Alfredo Twice Baked Potatoes and was so excited to try it because alfredo sauce is another food that my kids can all agree on! Alfredo sauce plus cheese plus potatoes? Sounds like the perfect food! These turned out absolutely amazing and I’m not sure we will ever be able to go back to “normal” baked potatoes!

Alfredo Twice Baked Potatoes are the perfect side dish for any meal! We love baked potatoes and they are even better when you add alfredo sauce and two different kinds of cheese!

How do you make baked potatoes?

To make baked potatoes, make sure to scrub and wash the potatoes thoroughly. Pat dry and then use a pastry brush to coat the skin with a little bit of olive oil. Sprinkle salt on top of the olive oil. This method will make the skins a little bit crispy so if you prefer softer skins, you can wrap the potatoes in aluminum foil instead of using oil. Make sure to pierce the potatoes with a fork 2-3 times before baking. With either method, you can just place the potatoes directly on the middle rack of the oven.

When you are making twice baked potatoes, you will have better success if you use the first method because the crispier skins will hold their shape better when you scoop the filling out and will hold the filling better when you put it back in.

What is a twice baked potato?

A twice baked potato is made when you bake the potatoes until done, cut them in half, scoop out the filling and mix it with toppings before putting it back into the skin for a few more minutes of baking. If cheese is one of your toppings, this is a great way to ensure that all of the cheese gets melted!

Twice baked potatoes are also easier to serve at parties, large dinners or with children because each person doesn’t have to cut open the potato and take the time to prep the potatoes before eating. You can just use a little bit of butter, salt and cheese in twice baked potatoes and then have other toppings available for everyone to personalize their own potato to their liking.

How long to bake a baked potato?

Bake at 375° for about 60 minutes, or until the centers are soft when poked with a fork. If the potatoes are really big, you may need to add another 30 minutes to the baking time. If you are making twice baked potatoes, you will need to bake the potato for an additional 6-8 minutes once the filling has been put back into the potato skins.

What ingredients do you need to make alfredo twice baked potatoes?

  • 2 large baking potatoes
  • 1 cup alfredo sauce (use your favorite kind from the store or try a homemade recipe like this one!)
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheeseAlfredo Twice Baked Potatoes are the perfect side dish for any meal! We love baked potatoes and they are even better when you add alfredo sauce and two different kinds of cheese!
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided

How do you make alfredo twice baked potatoes?

When the potatoes are done baking, remove them from the oven and slice each one in half horizontally.

In a mixing bowl, combine the alfredo sauce, garlic powder, mozzarella cheese and half of the cheddar cheese. Once combined, scoop out the pulp and add to the sauce mixture. Mix until completely combined and then put the mixture back into the potato skins.

Sprinkle the baked potatoes with the remaining cheddar cheese and then put them back in the oven for about 5-6 minutes, or until the cheese on top is completely melted. Serve immediately.

Ingredients

  • 2 large baking potatoes
  • 1 cup Alfredo sauce use your favorite kind from the store or try a homemade recipe like this one!
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese divided

Instructions

  1. Scrub and dry the potatoes. I like my skins to be a little bit crispy, so I prefer to brush them with olive oil and sprinkle them with a little bit of salt before baking. If you prefer the skins to stay soft, you can wrap them in aluminum foil instead. Either way, make sure to pierce them with a fork three or four times before baking. Bake at 375 for an hour, or until the centers are soft when poked with a fork.

  2. Remove the potatoes from the oven and slice each one in half horizontally.

  3. In a mixing bowl, combine the Alfredo sauce, garlic powder, mozzarella cheese and half of the cheddar cheese. Once combined, scoop out the pulp and add to the sauce mixture. Mix until completely combined and then put the mixture back into the potato skins.

  4. Sprinkle them with the remaining cheddar cheese and then put them back in the oven for about 5-6 minutes, or until the cheese on top is completely melted. Serve immediately.

Can you make baked potatoes in the microwave?

To make baked potatoes in the microwave, make sure to scrub the potatoes thoroughly. Pierce the skin 2-3 times with a fork and then place on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave on high power for about 5 minutes. Turn the potato over and bake for another 5 minutes. Test with a fork to make sure the potato is soft all the way through. If it isn’t soft in the middle, microwave for a few more minutes until soft.

What do you serve with baked potatoes?

Baked potatoes can be served with many different other items. At my house, we eat them as a main dish with salad but baked potatoes make a wonderful side dish. They pair beautifully with any chicken, steak or ham and they also go well with all types of green vegetables. We love to eat baked potatoes with broccoli, asparagus or green beans.

Are baked potatoes healthy?

Baked potatoes are low in calories, extremely low in fat and they also are a good source of protein and fiber. Potatoes are an excellent source of vitamin C and potassium as well. A large baked potato has about 270 calories and 63 grams of carbohydrates. Adding toppings will add calories and fat of course, but potatoes are a very nutritious and low cost food.

What type of potatoes are best for twice baked potatoes?

Russet potatoes are the best type of potato to use. They are large and the skin is sturdy enough to hold the filling and retain it’s shape.

Can you make twice baked potatoes ahead of time?

One of the things that I like about twice baked potatoes is that you can make them several hours or even a day ahead of time. Bake them the first time, prepare the filling and place the filling back into the potato skins. Let them cool for about 20 minutes and then cover them tightly with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator. They will need to cook for about 15-20 minutes at 375° until the cheese is all melted and the filling is warm to the center.

What are Cake Mix Cookies?

Cake Mix Cookies are cookies made using a store bought cake mix. They used to be one of my go-to desserts.. somewhere along the path I stopped making them. After making this batch of Lemon Cake Mix Cookes they are officially back on my radar and my dessert rotation list. What.. you don’t have a dessert rotation list? 😉

I love stocking up on all of the cake mixes once per year during the case lot sales. Chocolate, vanilla, funfetti, lemon, strawberry.. you name it, this recipe works!

Always having a cake mix on hand means always being 20 minutes away from warm, absolutely drool-inducing, delicious cookies. Today I’ve elevated the Cake Mix Cookie a bit by adding a lemon glaze. Not only does it take the look of the cookie up about 10 notches, the flavor is out of this world!

Tips for the perfect Cake Mix Cookie recipe

Use a mixer. Either a stand mixer or an electric hand mixer will work, just use one! Using a mixer helps get the cookie dough extremely smooth which results in perfectly chewy cookies.

Add the eggs first and then the melted butter. This helps with the overall texture of the dough, therefore the final cookie.

Use a cookie scoop! I bought mine on Amazon, this is so handy when it comes to making cookies! Using a scoop allows you to easily create the exact same size of cookie time and time again. When the cookie dough balls are different sizes, the cook time isn’t even among all of the cookies. I used the medium cookie scoop for this recipe. It uses 1.5 TBSP of cookie dough for each cookie.

Parchment paper is another thing I would recommend if you are looking for the absolute perfect Cake Mix Cookie. Never worry about cookies sticking to the pan again! That piece of mind is worth the price of the parchment paper in my book.

Lemon Cake Mix Cookie Ingredients

Here’s what you need to make Lemon Cake Mix Cookies:

–one 15.25 oz box lemon cake mix

–2 eggs

–1/3 cup butter melted

to make the lemon icing you’ll need:

–3 tbs butter, softened

–3/4 cup powdered sugar

–1 tbsp milk

–1/4 tsp lemon extract

How to make Lemon Cookies from a cake mix

The order of the ingredients are important and will effect the final cookie. First, add the cake mix and two eggs into a medium sized bowl.

lemon cake mix and eggs for the lemon cake mix cookies

I used my electric hand mixer, but you could use your stand mixer if you’d rather. Mix the eggs into the dry cake mix. The mixture will be similar to wet sand.

Melt the butter in the microwave and add it to the mixture.

Mix thoroughly. The dough will be very thick and sticky.

Let the dough sit for 5 or so minutes before scooping and rolling. Letting the dough rest for a few minutes will make it easier to scoop and roll.

Use a cookie scoop to create uniform balls. To achieve the perfect cake mix cookie, roll the dough in your hands after scooping to smooth all of the edges.

Skipping this step will effect the final cookie. The final cookie will show its rough edges.

Bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes. You’ll want to pull them out of the oven when the middles of the cookies are puffy and no longer glossy.

While the cookies are cooling, make the lemon icing (if you are adding it! 😉).

The lemon icing consists of butter, powdered sugar, milk and lemon extract.

Combine until extremely smooth and creamy. Ice the cookies one by one, spooning and spreading a little icing onto each cookie.

Store in an air tight container for up to 3 days.

How do I soften butter?

The traditional way of softening butter is leaving however much you need for a recipe out at room temperature for long enough to soften. However, there are some other, quicker ways to soften butter such as: cutting up the butter, pounding the butter, beating the butter and if it comes to it, microwaving the butter. If microwaving, use the defrost setting for only about 15 sec. You don’t want your butter to melt!

Are cake mix cookies soft?

Yes, cake mix cookies are soft and chewy cookies! That’s part of the appeal of using a cake mix to make cookies; you get that soft texture very easily. Do not overbake cake mix cookies and let them cool on the cookie sheet for 3-4 minutes after removing them from the oven.
