Gluten Free Freezer Meals

I just subscribed, and wanted to say "Thank you" and "Hello" as well. I look forward to seeing what you have here, and will try to contribute as soon as I get a handle on some recipes. We are newly gluten free, so that changes some aspects of freezer recipes for me as I'm still learning how non-gluten ingredients react in regular cooking.

Hi Lynda,
Welcome! Freezer cooking will be great for you as your family goes gluten free, I can't imagine how hard it must be to try and get takeout or eat at a restaurant.
I don't currently have a lot of gluten free recipes on my site but there are some I could name off hand.
Meatballs: These use oatmeal and you can buy gluten free brands. Oatmeal also works in meatloaf instead of breadcrumbs. Baked Ground Chicken Meatballs are a great variation that's gluten free too.

Cornbread: This recipe is really sweet like the Jiffy boxed stuff if you've had that. Great with soup or chili or warmed up and spread with butter for breakfast.

Salsa Chicken: Seriously easy to make in the oven or crockpot. I don't know if store bought Mexican/taco seasoing is gluten free but I use my own homemade taco seasoning recipe for Mexican dishes.

Turkey Wild Rice Soup: This can be made with chicken too. To make it gluten free leave out the butter and flour and use cornstarch to thicken. Haven't tried this but I think it would work fine.

For side dishes I have a few vegetable recipes near the bottom of the page at http://www.favoritefreezerfoods.com/frozen-vegetables.html. Currently only the Spinach Artichoke Dip would need to be modified, again I think cornstarch would work but I haven't tried it.
Macaroons/Coconut cookies are gluten free and low in sugar.

Also I had started following some gluten free blogs awhile ago looking for recipe ideas. You can test single portions to see if they freeze without wasting a lot of time, money and food. Here's the list gluten free blogs I've been following:
Wheatless Bay
I Am Gluten Free
Gluten-Free Recipes
Gluten-Free Goddess
Gluten A Go Go

Hope that helps!
Michelle
