    Can't find gluten free bread around here so I am trying to think of something else to do with my thin turkey slices. Last few nights I have had ground turkey tacos in corn tortillas..and they were delish. But now I want to do something different and I have a bunch of the deli turkey. Any ideas?

    If you have turkey, you need cheddar cheese and a couple Portobello mushrooms.

    You can make your own g/f bread. I guarantee it will better than any g/f bread you can buy. We've bought several and they're awful, imo.

    I'd kill for a chocolate chip cookie. Gluten free.

    Turkey roll ups.

    Slice of meat (or two overlapped to make it longer) cheese and tomato and lettuce.... roll it up and eat it.

    My son was g/f for about 4 years or so. I bake all the time so I would just substitute Bette Hagman's g/f flour combo.

    2 parts white rice flour
    2/3 part potato starch flour (make sure it says starch not just potato flour)
    1/3 part tapioca starch

    I would make a big batch of this and for every cup I used in a recipe I would add 1 tspn. xanthan gum. I would make Stromboli with it, rolls, pizzas. Pretty versatile. I used it to bake too. The choc chip cookies were pretty good . . the texture was slightly different than with regular flour but they were good. Peanut butter cookies . . I couldn't tell the difference, the taste and texture were the same.

    You can use this for a direct substitute for wheat flour in nearly any recipe.

    I got this and several other recipes from the book "Special Diets for Special Kids" back when my son was g/f. There are lots more books/choices out there now, in addition to being able to find g/f products in regular grocery stores. You may have to go to a whole foods type store for the flours and xanthan gum though . . . but I'm not sure.

    Is it a sandwich if it is breadless?
