It's just as delicious as it sounds. Fundraisers are an excellent time to hire food suppliers. I would know, since I've been raising funds for not only my children, but my grandchildren. My name is Shane Miller and I have had many long and successful school fundraisers where I would break records year after year. My secret: food. Finding a way to introduce gourmet food into your school fundraiser from a food supplier can really boost the turnout. But you have to know what food to order, how to keep the food fresh and many other tricks that I will share with you on my website!
If you have a gluten intolerance, you don't have to miss out on eating delicious foods made with fresh sourdough. Although it may be difficult to find these items premade at a store, you can purchase a gluten-free sourdough starter kit and make the dough yourself.
Slightly more acidic tasting than typical bread, sourdough is known for making flavorful bagels and rolls. To make the dough yourself, you'll need to begin with a starter kit, which consists of a fermented culture of fresh flour. You'll mix the starter with the recommended amount of water, and then allow it to ferment for several days, adding gluten-free white or wheat flour per the directions.
When the sourdough starter gets larger and begins to bubble, it's ready to use in your recipes. You can either store the starter in a jar at room temperature or in your refrigerator, if you don't plan on using it often.
Gluten-free sourdough makes a tasty base to a variety of recipes besides just bread. Although sourdough bread is ideal for making hearty sandwiches, you can incorporate the dough into your favorite breakfast, lunch, and dinner recipes.
Here are a few ideas to consider:
1. Sourdough Pancakes
Sourdough makes light and fluffy pancakes with a slightly savory taste. To enhance the flavor, you can substitute regular milk for buttermilk if you'd like. Once the pancakes are done, finish them with your favorite toppings, including maple syrup, pecans, blueberries or strawberries, chocolate chips, bananas, or whipped cream.
Serve the gluten-free sourdough pancakes alongside other breakfast staples such as bacon, sausage, hashbrowns, and any type of eggs. As an alternative option to pancakes, use the sourdough to make waffles instead.
2. Cinnamon Rolls or Biscuits
Substitute your typical dough for sourdough to create decadent cinnamon rolls, which will give the breakfast treat a slightly different flavor. You can also use sourdough to make biscuits if you prefer a more savory treat. Top the biscuits with a creamy, homemade gravy and serve with sausage for a typical southern-style breakfast.
3. Banana or Zucchini Bread
Replace your usual dough with sourdough when making banana or zucchini bread for a richer flavor, and a moist, fluffy texture. Use fresh bananas and zucchini for the best results.
You can customize the bread with add-ins such as white, milk, or dark chocolate chips, dried fruit, such as cranberries or cherries, or coconut flakes. Serve the bread warm and topped with butter.Share
