Gluten-Free Recipe of the Week

Baked Gluten-Free Eggs Benedict with Easier Hollandaise Sauce or Dairy-Free Hollandaise

 From Chef Oonagh Williams of Royal Temptations Catering

Eggs Benedict

I found the original wheat recipe for this on the Jones Dairy Farm website.  I've used only their sausage roll for years for stuffing and homemade patties. My husband loves for me to buy the big bag of their ready cooked sausage for breakfast in preference to bacon. What I really appreciate is that I think they were one of the first to clearly label their products as gluten-free. Yes, meat should be gluten free but many manufacturers add things to their food.

I adapted their recipe to be gluten-free and made their Hollandaise Sauce by an easier method. As a chef, I can make Hollandaise, but I haven't made it by the traditional method for years. My method uses a microwave and an immersion blender.  My gluten-free cookbook, Delicious Gluten Free Cooking, also includes my easier Hollandaise sauce, plus a lime variation that is good with fish.

My husband had bought me a bag of Udi's bagels at Trader Joe's without my asking (how good is that?), so I rewarded him with a variation for breakfast.  I had some of the thin Alfresco chicken apple maple sausage (7 sausages to 8 oz). For the 2 people quantity below, I substituted 2 of those sausages cut into very thin slices, white of a bunch of green onions cooked in 1 teaspoon of olive oil in microwave, and about 1 oz./2 Tbsp. goats cheese crumbles stirred in. Very pleasant, but very mild and at husband's suggestion (he's getting good isn't he?), we had it with some of Trader Joe's peach salsa on the side.  Think about using one of the Al Fresco chipotle chorizo sausage and some roasted red pepper for more of a kick.

  • ½ an Udi's plain bagel, Cut into tiny cubes about ½ inch square (I also tried this with a gluten-free English muffin and prefer the texture from an Udi's bagel.)
  • 1 egg or ¼ cup gluten-free egg substitute
  • 2 oz. ham (I prefer Jones Canadian bacon or ham steak cut into small dice rather than slices)
  • ½ cup milk (Fat-free is fine. In fact, you don't feel quite so guilty when you then indulge in Hollandaise)
  • Pinch of onion powder
  • 1 Tbsp. finely scissored green of green onion
  • 1 Tbsp. finely chopped fresh parsley
  • Salt and pepper to taste.
  • Smoked Paprika to garnish (I use Penzey's Smoked Spanish Paprika for flavor as well as color.)


  1. I mix the casserole ingredients in a glass bowl/jug, then cover and refrigerate overnight.  In the morning, spray the baking dish and then pour in ingredients.  This makes it far easier to clean the dish. Put egg, milk, ham, onion powder, fresh herbs and salt and pepper to taste in glass bowl, mix well. Stir in bread cubes and then refrigerate overnight.
  2. In the morning preheat oven to 350 degrees, stir the bread mix well to make sure ham/bacon is evenly distributed, and then pour into sprayed baking dish. Sprinkle lightly with smoked paprika.  For this quantity, I use a small pyrex casserole of 2 cup capacity. Place on baking dish and bake in preheated oven for about 30-40 minutes.  It will rise, brown and there should be no liquid “sloshing” around in the middle when it is cooked.  Do not cook above 350 degrees.

Four times the recipe will fit an 8 cup, 8x8 inch casserole dish and will need to cook for about 45 minutes. With fruit on the side and Hollandaise it is a very festive, tasty dish. Without the Hollandaise, it is boring to me.

Taco Dip

From Chef Oonagh Williams of Royal Temptations Catering



  • 8 oz. softened cream cheese (lite is fine)Gluten-Free taco dip with corn tortilla chips
  • 1 cup sour cream (lite is fine)
  • 2 tsp onion soup powder mix (make sure it’s gluten-free)
  • 4 Tbsp salsa - medium strength or stronger to your desire
  • 1 Tbsp cumin
  • 2 cups (8 oz. bag) shredded cheddar or Monterrey Jack cheese
  • 2 large tomatoes, chopped small
  • 1 cup finely shredded crisp lettuce, such as iceberg


1. Mix cream cheese, sour cream, onion soup powder, salsa and cumin, and spread in the bottom of a 9” pie plate or equivalent dish. I like to mix the cream cheese mix together 1-2 days in advance in a bowl and leave it covered in the fridge, then give it a good stir before you spread it in serving dish. The flavors are better this way, and the onion soup powder softens.

2. Top with cheddar in one layer, followed by a layer of lettuce and a layer of tomatoes.

3. Serve with tortilla chips.

Tips & Alternatives: I find that, when refrigerated, the cream cheese mixture stiffens up so the tortilla chips break when you try to scoop the dip.  I prefer to leave a spoon with small plates so guests can take a portion onto a plate and then use the chips.

Using this quantity of medium strength salsa only gives a nice flavor and is not hot, so you can use a hotter sauce or more. Everyone likes this proportion.

Oonagh's Gluten-Free Flour Mix

From Oonagh Williams of Royal Temptations Catering

I have tried various recipes for gluten-free flour blends. Many use sorghum flour as the main ingredient, but I find that has a bitter taste and requires a lot of additional sugar. I developed the following mix for gluten-free baking.

For one cup of gluten-free mix:

  • ½ cup potato starch (not potato flour)
  • ¼ cup tapioca starch
  • 2 tbsp amaranth or millet flour (Millet is roughly one third the price of amaranth. It is not as nutritious, but is more readily available.)
  • 2 tbsp sorghum flour 

I tend to mix these flours in food processor. The flours do not puff into the air as much, but are still well-blended. The food processor also grinds the flours a bit more and helps eliminate lumps in the potato starch.

Savory Cheese Bread


From Oonagh Williams of Royal Temptations Catering

Enjoy these with your favorite soup or chili. Microwave or toast to bring back the “just-cooked” taste and texture. For variation, substitute a jalapeno cheese and cilantro, some bits of ham or spicy gluten-free sausage, basil and some chopped artichokes. 

Make and freeze in advance for your Super Bowl party.

Makes 6 muffin tops (mini focaccia size)

  Ingredients:gluten-free cheese bread

  • 1 cup Oonagh’s Gluten-Free Flour Mix
  • ½ cup almond meal
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp xanthan gum
  • ½ c fresh, shredded parmesan cheese
  • ½ c shredded Swiss or mozzarella cheese. Using parmesan and mozzarella gives a lovely, gooey interior, using parmesan and Swiss gives a moist but not gooey, stronger cheese-flavored bread.
  • 2 tbsp olive oil or melted butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup buttermilk, ordinary milk or yogurt
  • ¼ cup green part of green onions, finely scissored.
  • Sesame seeds, poppy seeds, Italian seasoning


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease muffin top pan with spray.

2. Stir together flour mix, almond meal, salt, baking powder, xanthan gum and cheeses in a large bowl.

3. Stir together eggs, oil or butter and milk.

4. Stir wet mix into dry mix and stir well until no dry bits remain. The mix will seem very wet. Wait a few minutes and the mix will thicken.

5. Spray a ¼ cup measure with gluten-free cooking spray and use it to scoop batter into pans. Smooth batter with wet fingers. Sprinkle sesame seeds and poppy seeds on top for a bit of crunch and interest. You can also sprinkle Italian seasoning on top (or even top with caramelized onions).

6. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Muffin tops will rise, but won’t really dome like a regular muffin. They should be deep golden brown underneath and light gold on top. Rotate pan after 10 minutes for even baking. Once cooked, remove muffins from oven and let cool in pan for 5 minutes. Then remove to a cooling rack. If you leave muffin tops in the pan for too long, the bases will retain steam and go soft. The bottom crust will have a nice crispy edge if you remove it and let them cool.

Shrimp Fajita Nachos

From Chef Oonagh Williams of Royal Temptations Catering

Gluten-free shrimp fajita nachos


  • Gluten-free tortilla chips - enough to spread onto 4 dinner plates
  • 2-4 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 green pepper, deseeded and cut into thin strips about 2 inches long
  • 1 red pepper, deseeded and cut into thin strips about 2 inches long
  • 1 medium onion, peeled, halved and cut into thin slices
  • 12 oz. peeled, raw shrimp (I like smaller shrimp so they look better than cut up large shrimp and you’ll get some shrimp in each mouthful.)
  • 1/2 lb. of sliced white American cheese (You can shred it or leave it in slices. Make sure it's gluten-free!)


1. Heat olive oil in a 10” skillet. Add oil and stir fry onions and peppers over high heat until as tender as you like them. 

2. While onions and peppers are cooking, arrange tortilla chips on microwave-safe plates and top with slices of cheese. Microwave each plate for a few seconds until cheese is melted.

3. When onions and peppers are cooked enough for your taste, add shrimp and stir fry until they are pink and cooked. Scoop this mix evenly onto the warm cheese and tortillas and top with more cheese. Serve immediately.

Chocolate Pecan Indulgence


From Oonagh Williams of Royal Temptations Catering

I changed the recipe to use store bought caramels melted with cream. Making homemade caramel sauce can be extremely dangerous, so take caution if you venture to make your own.

This dessert is extremely rich, but tastes out of this world. It can be made a day or two in advance. You could also add 1-2 tbsp of liqueur to the chocolate truffle mix or even arrange sliced strawberries, fresh pineapple or mango on top of the chocolate, but underneath the caramel topping. In this way, both the chocolate and caramel help the fruit stay looking and tasting fresher. This is best served at room temperature. 

Makes at least 8 portions.

Ingredients:gluten-free chocolate pecan cake


  • 2 cup whole pecans (8oz bag)
  • 1 tbsp light brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 oz. very soft unsalted butter (you can get away with salted butter)


  • 1/2 cup whipping or heavy cream
  • 12 oz. bag (2 cups) semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • ½ of 14 oz bag of soft caramels, unwrapped (use the kind for making candy apples; the bin kind can be a pain to unwrap).
  • ¼ cup milk or cream.
  • Additional whipped cream and chocolate curls for garnish. To make your own whipped cream, combine one cup of liquid cream with 2 tablespoons sugar and one teaspoon gluten free vanilla extract. Whip until stiff.


1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

2. Blend nuts, sugar and cinnamon in processor until nuts are finely ground, but not a paste.

3. Add butter and blend until well combined. Press nut mix onto bottom and about one inch up sides of 9” tart pan/spring form pan with removable bottom. It will also work in 9” pie plate if a spring form pan is unavailable.

4. Bake until golden brown - about 20 minutes. Transfer to rack and cool.

5. Bring whipping/heavy cream to simmer in microwave. Add chocolate and stir until melted and smooth. Heat gently if not smooth enough. Put 2 tbsp chocolate mix in Ziploc snack bag and retain. Pour chocolate into crust. Cover and refrigerate until firm, about 2 hours.

6. Put caramels and milk in microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for about 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds, until totally smooth.

7. Allow caramel to cool slightly, but pour over set chocolate filling before caramel gets too hard. Warm Ziploc bag containing the 2 tablespoons of reserved chocolate. Snip corner from bag and pipe a continuous circle of chocolate radiating out from the center of the dish. Take a toothpick, knife or skewer, and gently drag tip through chocolate circle from outside to center to form pattern (see photo). Refrigerate to set.

8. To garnish: Spread or pipe whipped cream around edge, or all over top. Place few chocolate chips in cheese grater and grate some on top, or sprinkle with chocolate curls.
