I have tried about 5 kinds of gluten free bread including several store bought kinds and several home baked kinds from scratch as well as mixes and I have not found any that were that great. Does anyone know of any bread recipes that taste anywhere close to regular wheat bread? I'm really craving sandwiches and would LOVE to be able to eat a good tomato sandwich.

:) Hi and welcome. I am sure there are some good recipes on another thread-but have you tried Kinnikinnick white sandwich bread? It comes frozen and is pretty good. It is gluten free and dairy free. I use it for sandwiches all the time and it actually tastes pretty good.

You should try to find a copy of the Gluten Free Gourmet Bakes Bread" We have it here and have tried a few of the breads. The Quinoa bread is the best so far, but there is another one using yogurt (not so good if you are also dairy free.) I find that all the home made ones are the best for sandwiches.

I LOVE tomato sandwiches, and my dw had to find a recipe for good bread ASAP so I could at least have some comforty food while I was healing post-dx.

Hope that helped a little. I have not had much luck with the store bought breads. I find they all taste like cardboard! ;)

My favorite so far is Pamela's Amazing Wheat Free Bread mix. I even eat it plain and untoasted.

I have tried many bread mixes. I suggest getting a bread maker and using the gluten free pantry mixes. I have found that it is the easiest and best tasting.

I love the gluten free pantry mix, we make about a loaf a week, in the bread machine but It also cooks in the oven, we let it cool slice it with an eletric knife( that way it is thin like sandwhich bread) and store it in the frig, it last longer this way and it great toasted!! it would make great tomato sandwhiches, I get the mix at wild oats but if you don't have one of those close you can order it from the Gluten Free Pantry web site, you can order the dairy free sandwhich bread mix from there too if thats an issue, the one they sell at wild oats has dry milk present. I hope this helps you!

The Gluten-Free Gourmet Cooks Fast and Healthy has an excellent bagel recipe that I use for sandwich rolls. They're much better as rolls than they are as bagels. I just omit the sugar from the recipe. They even make good lunchmeat sandwiches!!! BLT's are divine on them. :)

I agree with the Kinnikinnick white sandwich, but they also make a brown bread that i absolutely love. Maybe you can try that?

Wholefoods has a pretty good sandwhich bread which is great for sandwiches or just toast in the morning. You don't even need to keep it frozen, which is handy. But the best bread and rolls I've had are from Gillian's (gilliansfoods.com). Great sandwich bread, dinner rolls that are buttery and amazing, even pretty solid brownies. They'll ship direct too...

I have tried numerous breads, and the only one that I can stand eating is Ener-G Tapioca Bread. It is sliced thin and you don't have to freeze it.

Wholefoods now makes some sun dried tomato bread which is quite yummy. It may have been out for a while but I just found out about it. It tastes almost as good as it smells but of course is not really sandwich bread - just great with dinner!

The homemade one I would reccomend is the submarine sandwich bread from Annalise Roberts book. Actually I'm sure any of her breads are great but that is the only one I have tried. It's incredible and you can use it for so many different things. Sanwiches, garlic bread, pizzas... it's awesome!

As far as store bought, well you would have to order it but it is from the Gluten Free Bread Basket in Chester, NY. I have tried both their sandwich bread and mock rye - both amazing!!! And get this, you don't have to toast them to eat it. You can just take the bread out and make a sandwich like a normal person!!

Thanks Jillian for letting us know about the gluten-free bread basket. I was wondering if it was any good. You don't have to toast it even? That is too awesome!
