Gluten-free Ham and Corn Fritters Recipe

This gluten-free Ham and Corn Fritters recipe is a tasty way to use some of that leftover holiday ham we might find ourselves wondering what we’ll do with it.

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup cooked ham, diced
  • 1 cup pineapple (diced fresh, OR canned tidbits) drained
  • 1 cup cooked corn, drained
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 2 Tbsp finely chopped onion
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp parsley, chopped
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 cup gluten-free flour
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil

Whisk eggs in a large bowl.

Add all remaining ingredients except the olive oil. Mix well.

Form mixture into 10, 3-inch patties. Add a bit more flour if mixture does not hold together.

In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil to medium and cook fritters until golden brown, about 1-2 minutes per side.

Remove cooked fritters to a plate lined with paper towels to drain oil.

Enjoy!

Gluten-free Gumdrop Cookie Bar Recipe

Here is a delicious gluten-free Gumdrop Cookie Bar recipe from my childhood. The hardest part of the recipe for me is refraining from eating all the cinnamon and spearmint gumdrops before they make it to the batter. 🙂

  • 2 cup gluten-free flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 cup sliced gumdrops
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans

Sift and mix together flour, salt, and cinnamon.

Beat eggs, sugar, and milk.

Add dry ingredients to eggs mixture. The batter will be stiff.

Add gumdrops and nuts.

You can cut the gumdrops with kitchen shears, or a sharp knife. Sugar from the gumdrops will make the knife sticky. Dipping it into a glass of warm water helps.

Spread in greased 9 X 11″ pan.

Bake at 325 degrees F for 30 minutes. The top will be cracked.

Enjoy!

I wish you well.

Gluten-free Butternut Squash Frittata Recipe

This delicious one-pan gluten-free butternut squash frittata can be served at any time. Because butternut squash is extremely hard to cut, if you can find pre-cubed squash, that’s the best way to go. Another option is to slice the squash in half length-wise, place in a dish with approximately 1/2 inch water, and microwave several minutes to soften enough to cube.

4 cups butternut squash cubes
1/2 red onion, cut into thick slices
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon sea salt, divided
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
8 large eggs
1/3 cup whole milk
2 tablespoons chopped fresh sage (or parsley)
1 cup grated Gruyère cheese

Preheat oven to 425°F.

Place squash and onion in a large, heavy cast-iron skillet or other ovenproof skillet and toss with the oil, 1/2 teaspoon of the salt, and 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper.

Roast until the vegetables are browned and softened, about 25 minutes, stirring once or twice during cooking. Remove skillet from oven and set aside to cool slightly.

In a large bowl, whisk eggs, milk, sage and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper together. Pour into the skillet and return it to the oven.

Continue cooking until eggs are just about set, 6 to 7 minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with cheese.

Turn on the broiler; place the skillet under the broiler just until the cheese melts and the top of the frittata is browned, about 2 minutes.

Cool for a few minutes, cut into wedges, and serve.

Enjoy!

I wish you well.
