What Is The Best Pre-made Gluten Free Bread?

Recommended Posts

You're a brave woman, to handle not only the disappointment, but the defeat as well.....

I simply cannot be bothered with making the styrofoam myself......too busy cooking up other disastrous gluten-free concoctions (well not entirely disastrous but I am just feeling very taxed by all of it today and would REALLY like a Pop Tart! :angry:

What I've found that is tasty is warm up the "bread" in the microwave for a few seconds, then drown it in pure maple syrup. It's about the only way I can eat the stuff.

I've been using corn tortillas to make roll ups for lunch - I never was a sandwich eater, but I can't eat in the cafeteria at work anymore so what is a girl to do?

It's definitely not squishy white bread, but I really like Glutino flax seed bread. Toasted, it really holds together enough to do a sandwich, which is so convenient. And I like the nutty taste from the flax. I haven't tried their other breads, in part because I looked at the nutrition information for their fiber bread and it had significantly more calories for the same size slice.

To be honest, I've pretty much given up on bread. I've tried about 3 kinds of Kinnickinnik, and except for stuffing a chicken/turkey, I can't palate them. I tried the english muffins too and thought they were gross. I was pretty sure I was giving myself a heart attack too, because the margarine kept disappearing and I had to keep adding more in order to choke the stuff down. I'd probably be more willing to try other brands if it weren't so darn expensive, but really, how much can you do with rice flour and xanthan gum??? My weekly grocery budget has not changed since my Dx, since unfortunately the news "hey, you have celiac disease" did not come along with a pay increase. I have decided to stick to my memories of what bread tastes like and call it quits.

I'm with ChelsE. At first I really missed bread--particularly when they delivered hot rolls to a table at a restaurant and I watched my boyfriend, friends, or family members devour it, but I've tried enough breads to know that it's just not worth it for me, and I have neither the time nor the patience to invest in a breadmaker and make my own. I've found lots of ways around eating bread-- hello quesadillas, tostadas, enchiladas, corn tortilla roll-ups, etc...one package of Goya corn tortillas is less than $2.00 and can last for a month. I tried Bette Hagman's 'supposed' french bread--it was half way between a rice cake and silly putty. No thanks! I also really don't like the Food for Life bread--it crumbles even when I toast it, and it's just not that great. I kinda liked the Sundried Tomatoes Bread from Whole Paycheck, but I only got to eat half of the loaf before it started to taste like corkboard (and in Philadelphia it was $7.99). Personally, I don't like the taste of office products or children's toys, so I'm happy to give up bread for naturally gluten free foods.

Am I the only one that doesn't miss bread :huh:

I've tried some for the hell of it, but I find that I didn't really eat it anyway. I hate sandwiches! :blink:

And I'm pretty, erm, cheap :P

Five bucks for a loaf of bread I could build a house with isn't really something that helps me seperate my money from my wallet...

The first couple months I endlessly searched for good gluten free bread. It became normal to drive 45 minutes to some tiny health food store because I heard they had Sterk's which was supposed to be one of the best.

Needless to say I'm with ChelsE now. I still like my glutino bagels with cream cheese or peanut butter. Or the breadsticks at Risotteria. But other than that I've basically resigned to the fact that I am just not meant to eat bread - real or imitation.

I have tried Kinnickinik and Energy Pre-Made bread but haven't found them to be excellent. I'm looking for a white squishy bread like Wonder or Aunt Millie's potatoe bread. Has anyone tried a gluten-free bread that is outstanding? I'm very picky and would rather do without than settle. I'm also allergic to corn and soy.

A friend just gave me a loaf of Ener-G Light Tapioca - - I toasted two of them last night w/ butter and honey and they were, to me, very much like white bread fluff.....prett good, actually. (sorry if someone has already mentioned this - didn't see it on the thread)
