Hamburger or Hot Dog Buns (Gluten-Free)
In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease, and since then it has become an invaluable resource to people worldwide who seek information about celiac disease and the gluten-free diet.
In 1998 I created The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore! which was also another Internet firstâit was the first gluten-free food site to offer a shopping cart-style interface, and the ability for people to order gluten-free products manufactured by many different companies at a single Web site.
I am also co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.

Variation: add 1 cup grated cheddar cheese for a lovely cheese bun. For hot dogs: add ¼ - ½ teaspoon more of the xanthan gum to the batter, and on greased cookie sheet, spoon batter in an oblong shape, about 5 inches long (all depends on how big you want them), sprinkle sesame seeds, and bake immediately. Let cool completely, wrap individually in saran wrap, and place in a freezer bag and freeze. Take out whenever you need one.
