Club House Gluten-Free ‘Stuffin Muffin & Gravy / Pork Chops with Brown Gravy

I was asked to try Club House Gluten-Free products and then blog about them. I've used their mixes before, but not the gluten-free variety. I was excited to try the samples that were sent to me and I have to tell you, they're just as good! If you don't have time or pan drippings to make gravy, these mixes only take minutes to prepare and can be made with water. Today I made 2 recipes using the gluten-free gravy mixes. I have a few more packets, so I'll post more recipes as I use them.


I noticed the gluten-free products at Wal-Mart the other day, and Superstore a few days before that. They're pretty easy to find. The gravy was in the usual Club House mix section, and the baking/thickeners were in the gluten-free section.

I didn't get a picture of these, but also available are:
• Club House Gluten-Free All Natural Potato Starch
• Club House Gluten-Free All Natural Rice Flour
• Club House Gluten-Free Minute Tapioca


Club House Gluten-Free ‘Stuffin Muffin & Gravy

Since Thanksgiving is coming up (here in Canada at least), I know it'll be time for stuffing. Stuffing is something I usually only get to eat at Thanksgiving and Christmas, so when I saw this recipe by Club House, I thought I'd give it a try. Maybe I can eat stuffing more than twice a year after all!

You could use regular bread for this recipe, but if you want to keep the recipe gluten-free, you should use a gluten free bread like All But Gluten. I’ve tried a few of their products now and they are delicious. I really can't tell the difference between regular and gluten-free products.

For this recipe, I used the turkey gravy mix. Just follow the package directions. You can't mess this up, trust me! Cornstarch and potato starch seem to be the thickeners in this gluten-free mix (in case you were wondering).

I used bacon fat instead of butter, because it's not often I cook with bacon fat, and I couldn't resist. I also thought the recipe needed more poultry seasoning, but that's only because my mom goes heavy on it with her stuffing and I like it that way.



Club House Gluten-Free ‘Stuffin Muffin & Gravy
Adapted from a Club House recipe
12 Servings

Ingredients
1 lb bacon, chopped
2 medium onions, peeled and diced
2 celery stalks, peeled and diced
1 teaspoon Club House Poultry Seasoning (or to taste)
1 loaf stale All But Gluten Focaccia loaf (or 1 loaf sliced bread)
1 cup chicken broth (gluten free)
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 package of Club House Gravy Mix for Turkey (gluten free)

Directions
Fry the bacon in a large pan until it gets crispy (not burnt). Transfer the bacon to paper towels, and drain all but 3 or 4 tablespoons of the fat from the pan.

Add the onion and celery to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft. About 5 minutes on medium heat.

Stir in the poultry seasoning and cook for a minute, then add the bacon and cubed bread.

Add the broth and season with pepper. I didn't think that the recipe needed additional salt. Between the bacon and gravy mix it was salty enough for us. Let the bread absorb the broth while you grease your muffin tin with butter. Divide the stuffing among the 12 muffin cups. I made a little indentation in the middle of them so the gravy could pool up on top later.

Bake for about 20 minutes, or until the tops are toasty brown. Top your muffins off with your fabulous Club House gravy!

And wouldn't these be nice with some chopped apple or dried cranberries? You could add pretty much whatever you would normally put in your stuffing.



Pork Chops with Club House Gluten-Free Brown Gravy (on Toast)

This recipe is super simple. My older daughter wouldn't let me eat it alone. If it's approved by a 6 year old, you know it must be good. Again, the gravy is salty enough for my family, so I wouldn't season the pork with any additional salt. To keep the recipe gluten-free, be sure to use gluten-free bread.

  1. Just a typo in the Stuffin' Muffin recipe - bread should be "All BUT Gluten", you have "All Gluten".
