Thanks! That's a great collection. How does Bette Hagman's French Bread compare to the real thing? I've been wanting to experiment to find a good substitute.

I've only made the french bread once, and it was a bit tricky (the dough is very sticky and hard to handle), but we liked it. My gluten eating family thought it was great.

Thanks for the collection -- I can't wait to try the jelly roll recipe!

I had great success recently using the gluten-free Pantry French Bread mix and a french bread pan. I didn't realize the french bread pan would make such a difference in the crust! It was crunchy-hard and made great bruschetta. I've made the same mix in a regular pan and it just turned out like regular bread. But the only place I found the french bread pan was Williams Sonoma.

Anyone know where you can find hot dog shaped mini pans?

I didn't even know they made french bread pans. That would certianly make things easier, especially since this particular dough is so sticky. I've heard the gluten-free Pantry one is good, but at $5.75/box, I haven't yet tried it.

Don't know about the hot dog pans, but there is a thread somewhere here about someone just making hot dog rolls.

Thanks for all the great recipes! Some of them look really yummy!

I found these little dishes the other day and I was wondering if they would work for hot dog buns. http://www.cooking.com/products/shprodde.asp?SKU=135225 . I have used a muffin top pan for hamburger buns, but I was thinking about getting some little round dishes like these for hamburger buns.

The only place I've found the pan is Williams Sonoma and I spray it with a non-stick spray even though it's a non-stick pan. gluten-free dough is too sticky to handle otherwise. http://www.williams-sonoma.com/products/81...rench+bread+pan

A tip I picked up when Beth Hillson spoke at our local Celiac group was to make a "glove" by wraping one or both hands in plastic wrap and spray them with gluten-free cooking spray. Makes handling the dough so much easier.

Amazon sells the mix a little cheaper and a few months ago, I could buy 6 boxes for $20. I still can on the Favorite Sandwich Bread and if the order goes over $25, I don't pay shipping. I don't know why they don't offer the 6-pack on the French Bread anymore.

That's what I use for the foccacio with the gluten-free pantry bread mix. My dishes are round, but they're the perfect size for something like a hamburger bun. I don't know how they would work for hot dogs, though--do you think they're skinny enough?

Ooo... That's good to know. I tried the GFPantry French Bread mix before. I thought it was pretty good, but my husband doesn't like it. I've been meaning to experiment more, but just haven't.

I've been using the muffin top pan trick to make hamburger buns too, but it really is kind of a PITA so I don't make them as often as I should. Using the ceramic quiche pans is a great idea. I've seen them in all sorts of sizes.

I've been wondering about those french bread pans too. I wasn't sure if they'd hold the gooey gluten-free bread dough with the holes. Good to know they work okay.

If you get a french bread pan, you might want to give it another try. I couldn't believe how the pan changes the texture of the mix. In a loaf pan, it's nothing special.

I took some to work so I'd have some for a luncheon our group was having. A co-worker (not a Celiac) liked it so much that she asked me to make some for a dinner party she was having so she could make bruschetta out of it. One of her guests was Celiac and the rest of the guests didn't realize it was gluten-free bread until they saw the Celiac eating it.

One thing I did to make the crust harder and crustier was brush it with a beaten egg and sprinkle a heavy coating of seasame seeds on it before it went into the oven.

Has anyone tried one of the multi-grain mixes? I really miss pumpernickel!

The King Arthur Flour co. sells a quite variety of bakeware and used to sell those frenchbread pans. I imagine they still do.

They make French Bread pans without holes. The one I have doesn't have the holes. But I haven't tried making french bread yet. It is on my "to do" list!

I figured it was the small holes that helped make the crunchy crust on the bottom. I'd be curious to know if it's the holes or the rounded bottoms. Please let us know how it turns out.
