I have posted about our fun tonight in being able to serve gluten-free hambergers - on buns! Go to my blog at http://homeschoolblogger.com/armoorefam/.

The Smiles (a fun gluten-free type of french fry that looks like smiley faces) are made by a company called McCain. Our local super Walmart carries these. The buns are cornstarch and potato flour buns from Grandma Feldon's (dedicated gluten free facility).

The Smiles are made by McCain. Here is how they describe the Smiles:

"Crispy Outside, Mashed Potatoes Inside." That pretty well describes it. Theses are quite flavorful. Everyone loves them in my family, especially the kids - I have 4 children. To me, they actually remind me of the flavor and texture of a fried bread - kinda like the batter on a good corndog but smoother.

Here are the ingredients just in case you are curious:

Potatoes, Non-hydrogenated Canola Oil, Dehydrated Potato Flakes (potatoes, citric acid, sodium acid prophosophate, mono-and diglycerides), Modified Potato Starch, Salt, Pepper, Dextrose, Sodium Acid Pyrophoshate (added to preserve natural color)

vitamin data and stuff: serving size = 6 smiles, cal=160, sodium = 16%, potasium = 11%, total carbs = 8%, fiber = 8%, protein = 2 g, vit C = 6%

McCain has a web page. Right after we tasted our first batch out of the oven, I looked them up to thanked them for making such a tasty product and expressing my gratitude that they made seasoned fries with rice rather than wheat flour. They sent me several coupons to get their products free. I thought that was pretty gracious of them.

For the hamburger buns:

I ordered them from Grandma Ferdon's - http://www.grandmaferdons.com/catalog/inde...&sort=2a&page=2

The price for the buns were not to bad - six of them for $4 and something. The only shipping option is overnight though, so that can bring the total order $$$ up pretty fast. They arrived the very next day after we got a shipping confirmation. The products arrived in a box with a really nice styrofoam cooler to contain the products - which we are going to save for gluten-free day travel snacks in the car. Everything was cool to the touch. No worries about getting product that has overheated in transport.

I just went ahead and ordered a few other items with the buns to make me feel like the shipping was spread out over several items - wierd logic, huh? I also got brown rice lasagne noodles (which I am going to make into lasagne tonight. I will let you know how they do), potato starch, and guar gum. I haven't tried baking with any baking product I cannot get at WalMart, so the guar gum binder and potato starch will be my 'experimentals'.

armoorefam, Thanks for the info. Today, I'm ordering the Biscuit Mix, Hamburger Buns, and Cinnamon Rolls. I'm excited! I think you will enjoy baking with the potato starch. I bake with rice flour and the addition of the potato starch makes things softer and I find they don't dry out as fast. You have to play with the amounts a bit, but I've had good luck with it. The gums also add a lot of moistness to baked goods (you don't need too much). I've never tried the McCain potatoes, but they sound good, as well. Thanks again for a lot of great ideas. :)

Grandma Ferdons website looked really promising until I found out they don't ship to Alaska. Is there anywhere that anyone knows of to get good tasting buns and bread. Right now I use Tapioca bread from energy foods. It's fine for most things but it's not the same. Any suggestions?

Glad to see this thread again so I can report that I did get the Grandma Ferndons Hamburger Buns, biscuit mix, cinnamon rolls and the McCain fries, too. The buns were fabulous! The cinnamon rolls were good, but you need to add your own frosting. Without it, they're a little bland. Shipping was 19.99--but the buns were worth it--I couldn't take another hamburger on toast! Yaso--Kinnikinnick has buns and breads. Don't know if they ship to Alaska. A lot of people here like their stuff--I've never tried it--although I'm thinking of trying their buns as their shipping is 1/2 of what Ferndons is.

Thanks for the info. They appear to ship to Alaska.
