Gluten-Free Southern Comfort Foods — Menu Plan July 20

By · Print This Post Print This Post

AmericanSouthThis week for the Gluten-Free Menu Swap, we’re sharing American Southern Comfort foods, meals, and menus.  

By Southern, I guess I really mean the southeastern states of the US. And my definition of comfort food is sugar, salt, and fried…mostly high carbs. Of course, it doesn’t have to mean that for you. That’s just what I crave.

We moved back to the east coast this month, and we’re currently in a house full of moving boxes. I am definitely in need of some good Southern Comfort food to fuel my motivation for unpacking. 🙂 My favorite comfort foods are probably Fried Chicken with Mashed Potatoes and Gravy. But that’s not the only Southern foods you can make gluten-free.

Here’s are some good-looking Gluten-Free Recipes for Southern Comfort Foods:

What a great line-up of southern style dishes! They look so good. Thank you for hosting me, The Gluten-Free Foodsmith.


Tina Marie — I’m glad I found your recipe…and website!


Hi Heather! I found your site over at OrgJunkie. I am not gluten intolerant, but l have a feeling my daughter may be. I will be passing some of these great recipes on to her. Your country fried steak recipe is a true southern comfort food. We love it! So glad to find you – I am now following your social media outlets. I look forward to seeing you around the web.


What a fun and yummy theme! And it reminds me that I’ve never shared my gluten-free fried chicken recipe on gfe. You’ve shared so many of my favorite dishes here, Heather. Time to treat myself to one or two of them soon. 😉

Thanks to you and all!


Cynthia — Thanks for stopping by! Hope your daughter finds some relief with a gluten-free diet. Happy to share some ideas with you and her.


Shirley — I’ve never shared my fried chicken recipe either…mostly because it isn’t much of a recipe. But it is yummy. 🙂 Hope you’re doing well.
