Gluten-Free Spicy Ranch Turkey Bites

Gluten-Free Spicy Ranch Turkey Bites

 If you have friends or family with gluten sensitivities or celiac disease it can be a challenge coming up with menus for holiday entertaining. It doesn’t have to be a challenge through with a little bit of imagination and the right ingredients.  These Gluten-Free Spicy Ranch Turkey Bites are made with homemade wonton wrappers made with gluten-free flour.  I have yet to find store-bought gluten free wonton wrappers which is kind of odd since you can get almost anything gluten-free, in any case, they are deceptively simple to make so don’t let that scare you off.

 

Gluten-Free Spicy Ranch Turkey Bites

Hidden Valley® Ranch Original, Light, Spicy and Cheese Dressings are gluten-free, which means holiday food preparation just got a little bit easier for those of us who need to take gluten sensitivities into account in the kitchen.

Holiday Heads Up!

Hidden Valley® Ranch is more than just a salad dressing.  In a pinch, Hidden Valley® Ranch Dressing can serve double duty in countless holiday recipes.  Why not add some zest to your turkey marinade with Hidden Valley® Spicy Ranch, or infuse more creaminess into your mashed potatoes with a dash of Hidden Valley® Cheese Ranch?

Directions

For the Wonton Wrappers:

Lightly beat the egg and salt together then mix in 1/4 cup of water. 
 
In a large bowl create a well in the middle of the flour then pour in the egg and water mixture.  Carefully incorporate the flour with the liquid.   
 
Add small additions of the water at a time in order to form a dough, kneading together until you are able to form a smooth dough.  Keep in mind that less water is better than too much.  It should form the consistency of play dough.
 
Turn dough onto a heavily floured surface and roll out until very thin with a heavily floured rolling pin.
 
Cut into 4 inch squares – a pizza cutter works great for this.

  1. Those sure do look tasty! Great for the upcoming gathering we have this week….I wonder if ground beef will do….I’m not the biggest ground turkey fan.

  2. Those look delicious. I’m continually amazed at all the awesome gluten free recipes I’m seeing these days. There was a time when gluten free meant taste free.

  3. Ranch dressing is my favourite but I haven’t tried the Hidden Valley one! I will definitely keep my eye out for it next time I am in the grocery store!

  4. We did not have gluten-free issues in our immediate family until two years ago, when our greatgranddaugher was diagnosed as Celiac at the tender age of I year, 7 months.
    This, naturally, influences her diet and when she visits, we want to be able to give her non-gluten foods. I find it very odd, that noone has made non-gluten wonton wrappers. Thank you for this recipe. I intend to save it for future use. Thank you.
