8 Favorite Allergy-Friendly and Gluten-Free Brunch Ideas

Gluten Free Brunch Ideas

I am so sad that the SSGF Gluten-Free Holiday Event is already getting close to the end. We have only one more week after this one. And next Thursday She Let Them Eat Cake will be all about the Holiday Desserts Theme.  There will be an amazing line-up to look forward to. Of that I am sure.

Gluten Free Holiday

This week’s theme , however, is actually one of my favorite parts of the season….Holiday Breakfasts and Brunches!

Ricki, of Diet, Desserts, and Dogs fame, is in charge today. And her Gluten-Free Oatmeal Poppyseed Scones will wow you, without a doubt.

Ricki is also giving away a copy of her amazing cookbook, Sweet Freedom (which I reviewed glowingly here).

Gluten Free Dairy Free Egg Free Cookbook

She is also giving away a copy of Gluten-Free And Vegan Holidays, by Jennifer Katzinger:

Gluten-free brunch ideas

If you read my last post for gfe-gluten-free easily’s Home for the Holidays event, I talked about how the simple moments are what are so important to me this season. And the lazy morning brunches with my family are some of my favorite moments.

However, because a certain appendage of my body is currently dressed in this latest accessory, I am not technically supposed to be in my kitchen whipping up a brunch recipe worthy of the Wow Factor.

Holiday Brunch Ideas

But seriously. Just admit it. You are insanely jealous of my new boot. I would tell you the quickest way to earn yourself one, but then I would just have to hide my face in embarrassment.

My path to this footwear is pretty pathetic. I will just keep it to myself.

And because my husband would surely place me on the naughty list if I was on my feet trying to create something fun to share with you today, I am just going to bring you a little round-up of 8 of my favorite Allergy-Friendly and Gluten-Free Brunch Recipes that usually grace our morning table at this time of year. You can go check out the recipes and decide for yourself which one tickles your fancy!

    Holy moly, a brunch-a-rama, and I want to eat every single recipe on this list!!
    So sorry about your foot, Kim. I won’t ask how it happened but I do hope it’s better soon! xo

  2. On December 8, 2011 Hallie @ Daily Bites said

    Had no idea about your foot, Kim. Here’s to a speedy recovery! 🙂 (And all of your breakfast dishes look AMAZING!)

    • On December 8, 2011 Kim-Cook It Allergy Free said

      Thanks, Hallie! I should be back on my feet soon….I hope. For now, I am just trying to be a good patient and let it rest. 😉

  3. On December 8, 2011 Alta said

    I’m suddenly very much in need of cinnamon rolls. Either the cake or the cinnamon raisin rolls will do. Yum.

    • On December 8, 2011 Kim-Cook It Allergy Free said

      LOL! THanks Alta. Right now I really wish someone would just make them for me. I have been craving them! 😉

  4. On December 8, 2011 Sarena said

    Oh no, sorry about your injury! That kind of stuff drives me crazy especially when it probably could have been avoided. I hope it heals fast! Love the brunch list! Dessert waffles are my all time favorite!

    • On December 8, 2011 Kim-Cook It Allergy Free said

      Hi Sarena! It was a totally silly injury seeing as all I was doing was walking ( I tripped on a buckled sidewalk). Thanks for the healing wishes! 😉

  5. On December 8, 2011 Shirley @ gfe said

    I was wondering if you were going to tell the world about your new fashion accessory! Smart girl that you are, you went with the classic black. You simply can’t got wrong there. Well, not at your age anyway. Just remember when you get much older that black can “wash out” one’s faded beauty even more. LOL, but seriously, that’s my fashion and aging advice today. 😉

    Now on these brunch ideas … they are fabulous! I don’t know how anyone could see these pics and just read the titles and not start drooling. Glad you already did the hard work on these a while back and can keep that foot propped up! Listen to the hubs and stay off the naughty list!

    Off to check out Ricki’s post and awesome recipe …


    • On December 8, 2011 Kim-Cook It Allergy Free said

      Thanks so much, Shirley! I figured I had better share my boo boo with everyone since it was the reason I could not make a new dish for this week’s event. 😉 And yes, the black was the best choice by far. i have plenty of black clothes to help it to blend in better and not be so obvious! My kids want to paint it now with glitter paint though. LOL

      But it is really hard to sit and not do much right now…especially at this time of the year.


  6. On December 8, 2011 Michelle W said

    All your dishes look scrumptious! You make being Dairy and Gluten Free, problem whatsoever! Thank you for that! 🙂

    • On December 8, 2011 Kim-Cook It Allergy Free said

      HI Michelle! Thanks so much! See? We can still totally eat awesome meals, even with being gluten and dairy free. We are not missing out on anything! 😉

  7. On December 8, 2011 Stacy said

    We’re going to be making paleo Monkey Bread, but these ideas give it a run for the money!

    • On December 8, 2011 Kim-Cook It Allergy Free said

      Stacy, we are making your Monkey Bread this year! I have been so excited to try it since you posted it! I have it pinned and ready to go for Christmas morning (I will actually start it on Christmas Eve, I think)!

  8. On December 8, 2011 Audrey J said

    Egg Cupcakes from Everyday Paleo,

    • On December 8, 2011 Kim-Cook It Allergy Free said

      HI Audrey! We love the Egg Cupcakes from Everyday Paleo! I make them all of the time around here! Good choice! 😉

  9. On December 8, 2011 Maggie said

    Okay what happened? Christmas shopping online this year I guess 🙂 Your recipes always look amazing Kim, this is a fabulous round-up. Here’s to a speedy recovery! xo

    • On December 8, 2011 Kim-Cook It Allergy Free said

      Maggie, it is not even a good story. I was walking off the tennis court to go home (after playing a hard game of tennis for an hour and half) and I tripped on the sidewalk while I was walking. So lame. LOL And thank goodness for online Christmas shopping! 😉 I have done a lot of it that way so far.

  10. On December 8, 2011 Jeannie Wilson said

    Glad to see you resting in front of the tree. Looks like the boot offers a good deal of support. Mine was shorter, but then again 3 months of cast went with it. Can’t wait to try some of these recipes when I come out. It won’t be long now. I am taking your Chicken, Tortilla GF soup to Advent church service tonight. Hugs, Mommacitta

    • On December 8, 2011 Kim-Cook It Allergy Free said

      Thanks Mom!! I will take the bigger boot and no cast any day. 😉 Hope everyone at church loves the soup! Give them all hugs for me! xoxoxo Love you.

  11. On December 8, 2011 Carol, SGF said

    Oh no!!! Hope you heal fast. Too bad you are off your feet right now or I would hightail it over for brunch!

    • On December 8, 2011 Kim-Cook It Allergy Free said

      Carol, you can just come anyway and I will put you to work. LOL And I can do a lot of gabbing and drinking from my rear end, you know! 😉

  12. On December 8, 2011 Jodi said

    CInnamon Bun Cake…yes please! Everything else looks awesome also!

  13. On December 9, 2011 Connie said

    Shared on FB.

    Oh and how amazing this sounds! I love cinnamon so this is a for sure recipe I will be making!

  14. On December 11, 2011 Diane Eblin-thewhole said

    Good job on taking it easy and not running around the kitchen making something. Rest up. But I do have a question. Where are the lights or tinsel on the boot? If I find those lights that are battery operated I’m sending them over! Cheers!

    • On December 12, 2011 Kim-Cook It Allergy Free said

      Diane, well in true me fashion, I have been doing way too much all weekend. My ankle looks like a balloon this morning. I got a finger scolding from my sweet hubby today. LOL And I am waiting for those battery operated lights. The boys would die. 😉

  15. On December 11, 2011 Bites and Bliss said

    Oh, those look SO good! This household has recently gone it’s perfect to have a bunch of tasty breakfast ideas. 🙂

    And I have to admit..that boot is pretty stylin. 😉

    • On December 12, 2011 Kim-Cook It Allergy Free said

      Hi Mary! So glad you like the boot! I am trying to start a trend here and encourage others to sport this cool footwear as well! 😉 Hope you find a breakfast idea that your family will enjoy now that they are all gluten free! Hope you are having a wonderful holiday!
