Gluten and Dairy Free Options
This recipe is gluten free and is a healthy alternative to starchy gluten free breads. The eggs boost the protein while the yellow cornmeal gives added fibre.
To go dairy free replace the milk with lactose free milk or oat milk. Other milk alternatives which have a strong flavour may not be as appetizing. Use the olive oil or sunflower oil instead of the butter.
Save money on your gluten free spoon bread by buying cornmeal or polenta in bulk packs (paid link). They have a long shelf life of up to 12 months when stored in the pantry. This can be extended to 2 years when stored in the freezer.
Simply place the cornmeal in a freezer bag then expel as much air as possible before placing in the freezer. When using an airtight freezer safe container remember to leave enough head room for it to expand when freezing.
