On another thread I was convinced to get a Kitchenaid mixer. It came the other day, but had an issue with the switch, so I will be getting a new one within the week.

The thing that I would most like to find a successful recipe for is hamburger buns. I have a bun pan on order also that I believe is either 4" or 4 1/4" molds.

I would appreciate it very much if ANY of you folks that have found a recipe for buns that are actually 'good' would post it here, or the link to a recipe.
I figured that since many of you have experimented over and over, it would be far better to take your advice rather than experimenting with dozens of recipes I manage to track down on my own.

Let's see what ya got!! :)

Every person on this forum is still looking for the perfect bread and bun recipe....I still choke down the store bought gluten free buns....have found that grilling them helps a bit...I use a cast iron pan to do mine. I also have discovered that using both heel ends of gluten free bread as a "bun" has worked out well....grilled, with a bison burger,tomato,onion,mayo,french fries,and a Bard's gluten free beer makes my day and I feel on top of the world.

I have discovered I can cheat, and have a regular store bought bun about once every 3 weeks and not have any abdominal issues....you may want to consider that.

I see there is another Bison fan here! :)

Bought some of those Udi's buns that I read were 'really great.'
I think they are barely edible to be honest, so after I finished the package I didn't get more.

I'm sure I could 'cheat' from time to time, as I am not as sensitive as some folks here are. I actually ate something last week that I thought was gluten-free, and turned out it wasn't. Nothing major happened afterwards.

What some people consider great, is barely edible to others,......individual preference varies greatly I have learned.

I am still going to try some from scratch though!

PLEASE do not even consider taking this terrible advice! As is well known... even if you have no abdominal issues or any symptoms if you are glutened, you are damaging your small intestine by eating gluten. Eating it accidently is difficult enough... to do it on purpose is insanity.

I use Pamela's bread mix and simply fashion it into buns w/ a spatula. I get 9 rolls from a bread mix. You could absolutely use your bun pan. Lightly toasted, they are awesome.

I fully agree. I bet I could get away with eating gluten as I do not feel sick from it (yet!) but I will not even consider trying it because of the havoc it would play internally. I have been gluten-free for nearly six months and have no idea whether I have been accientally glutened yet or not (and am not about to find out). My celiac diagnosis means strictly adhering to a gluten-free lifestyle FOREVER. Gluten is not an option. No one should be doing this - it would be like Russian roulette! Ginsou, would it not sort of negate all the hard work you are otherwise doing? That someeone does this is disconcerting and worriesome... :huh: All it takes to cause damage is 1/100th of one peanut a day (yes, it is cumulative but still!).

Sorry - I was just concerned that someone new to this gluten-free thing would read certain comments and be inadvertently mislead. ;)

Anyway, thus far I have no good bun recipes! Some are kind of ok but not really great. Yet. Have you seen these recipes? They make decent dinner rolls but by no stretch are they fabulous (nor are they realy buns). Some of those who commented would disagree. What can I say? I am a picky baker/cook! They are OK for gluten-free, though...alright flavour but the texture is not even close to their gluten-filled counterparts (there really is no such thing!).

One of my favourite gluten-free baking books is "Gluten-Free Baking with The Culinary Institute of America" - they include great things most books do not such as bagels, English muffins, doughnuts, sourdough, Bialys, soft pretzels, pastry dough...

Ya know what? When I was a fairly new member, I made the mistake of posting that I wasn't so sensitive that I couldn't pick croutons off a salad and blow off the crumbs... or take a burger off a bun and eat it. The folks here set me straight... in NO uncertain terms... that what I was doing was NOT keeping a gluten-free diet and that I was hurting myself. I was so mad... I stripped my computer of the celiac.com website... and finally I realized that I was fooling no one but myself. The "tough love" approach set me straight and I've been completely gluten-free ever since. I've thanked those "tough love" peeps thru-out the years.

Thanks for this! It is cool hearing about your experience. Yes, it can be tough but it is out of love and concern. If we did not care enough we would not bring it up! :)

Sorry to chime in here but cheating is not a healtyy choice. These comments make new people feel it is okay to cheat now & then & it has & does cause issues big issues with family esp. family members who do not understand that when you are celiac it is 100% 100% of your living life. None of us has a camera inbedded in our intestinal tract to see what damage is taking place .. a family member several years ago decided to do just that cheat not often but now & then... They just had 2 feet of their small intestine removed from intestinal cancer. excluding the intestinal issues of eating gluten there are so many more issues when cheating occurs, depression, hives, itching, irratible feelings..
This site is meant for people to learn , vent & understand their illness we don't want to give them wrong information...
If you are celiac cheating is not an option,
I'm an old time celiac .....

I've never heard of Bertille Buns,....I assume they are a pre-made packaged product? If so, I have never seen them around here. We only recently got the Udi's burger and hot dog buns.
We've had the Udi's bread since I started this, but I just can't eat the stuff. The only thing I made on it that was edible was a grilled cheese sandwich.

Now please let me clear up one thing, since there is so much concern about the one comment another poster with good intentions made.

I have no real idea whether I am celiac or gluten intolerant.
My general practitioner doc is also into 'functional medicine' even though he is an internist and an MD.

He had me do some saliva test that started all of this. He was really testing my cortisol patterns, but something that can have to do with gluten intolerance showed up as borderline,.....not positive, but not negative. He investigates everything, so he had me do the EnteroLab gene test.

That turned out positive for one celiac gene, and another that tends to favor gluten intolerance. After seeing that, he suggested a gluten-free diet.
After that I had a colonoscopy/endoscopy and told my GI doc to check for celiac sprue with multiple biopsies at the same time. Real purpose of the test was to check for polyps and for signs of Barrett's syndrome since I have GERD, and a family history of polyps.

I was totally clean of those, and my biopsies came back negative for celiac sprue or whatever they call it. LOL
He also said I had zero signs of villi damage. The GI docs response was to ignore the gene test and continue to eat as I always have. I have remained on a gluten-free diet regardless, but as you can see I have no real proof that I even have a problem per se. My regular doc says I should do this, my GI doc says it's crazy and not necessary.

At least now you folks know what I have had done, but regardless of that I have not cheated since I started this. The thing last week was some guacamole dip that was previously gluten-free, but I neglected to check the label, and later found out they had changed the recipe. That is the only gluten that I have had to my knowledge since I started this. :)

When it comes to eating gluten free, the only person affected by it is the eater (and perhaps their loved ones if they have to suffer the effects of cheating). So the only person you are doing it for is yourself. It just depends how much you think of yourself, how long and how well you want to live. Nobody is going to stand beside you and be your policeman. It is something you do by yourself, for yourself. Seems like you are doing a pretty good job. :)

Yes I have actually,....one mistake since the beginning of the year isn't bad.

I looked at your 'sig'line and quickly understood even more that my issue is not that big of a deal.

How in the world do you eat with all of those food intolerances?
I can't imagine what a struggle it must be to find products that meet your needs.

My mother was told by a doctor when I was a small child that I had a milk allergy. I really don't know what he based that on back then, as I am almost 50 now. I got over it around the age of 10 to 12 IIRC, and went on a milk drinking binge. That ended within a couple of years, and I have never been much of a milk drinker since then,......I DO love cheese though! :P
