Omg, I Am In Bread Heaven!

Recommended Posts

Move over Udi's, I've just made my first batch of Chebe. I made the regular rolls, the little round ones. omg... {faint} -- they're crusty and chewy and soft in the middle, just what I've missed in bread. I had to keep myself from eating them all at once because I want to save some for lunch. I'm going to put some butter and cheese on them, one of my favorite things. Yeah, not overly healthy. But I don't care! lol..

And, I'm thinking that this will make a good communion bread. I tried dunking it in my coffee and it did NOT fall apart!

It's the little things that make it easier to cope with all that celiac entails. I've been feeling sorry for myself lately and this has cheered me up. (this, plus all the yummy grits recipes you all provided! :) ) B)

So glad you found a bread you like! Enjoy!!

When I saw this photo, I thought it truly represented my life prior to being gluten-free. It was like being rooted in place trying to survive a Category 5. Now that I am gluten-free, I feel like I just might make it :)

Chebe is so heavenly! I made the cheesy little rolls for Thanksgiving dinner and they got wiped out in no time! Their pizza crust is amazing too. I bake it in a 12 inch cast iron skillet and it's perfect!

Rachel, I had to order it on Amazon since there was no where near me that sold it. And, by ordering it like that I had to order a case -- eight packs of mix, I think. I hated to order that many without ever tasting it ahead of time, but based on all the rave reviews I decided I'd try it. SO glad I did. :)

I haven't tried Chebe, but I had the WORLDS BEST GRILLED HAM AND CHEESE SANWICH for supper tonight. I found Rudi's gluten-free bread. (I have loved Udi's but OMG-Rudi!!) I toasted a piece the other day and it was reallly good. Then, I tried to make a sandwich and I was disappointed. But tonight, I got home late, had to grocery shop and was starving. I pulled out the ham and cheese I just bought and decided to try a grilled sandwich. It was OUT of this WORLD! Soft, perfect for grilled cheese!! HMMMM...I'm drooling even now! :lol:

Chebe is my favorite gluten-free food BY FAR. My husband and I go through so many packages a month we buy it in bulk now. I took it for Thanksgiving and Christmas with my family and they like it too. I would have loved it before I went gluten-free, I think.

My favorite way to eat it is with tacos. Just split it open and put a little bit of taco meat in there. Yummmm so good. I am going to try making it as hamburger buns soon.

The Chebe bread stick mix is great! I made it for Xmas dinner and the gluten eaters gobbled them up. We used shredded Asiago instead of grated parm. Halfway thru the baking, we brushed them with olive oil and sprinkled garlic salt & garlic powder. They would be good with pizza sauce to dip.

Also, fun for kids to make. You roll them in your hands like a play dough snake. Paint on the olive oil & sprinkle.

Isn't it great? I recently figured out how to duplicate the pizza crust mix using tapioca flour. I use a food scale, put about a teaspoon of dried oregano, half a teaspoon of garlic powder, half a teaspoon of onion powder, and a teaspoon of kosher salt in the bowl on the scale. Then I add tapioca flour until it weighs the weight on the Chebe bag (I think it's 7 oz?). Then I add the other ingredients (eggs, parm, oil, almond milk) and make it like the package. I save so much money doing this because I can get a 1 lb bag of tapioca flour at the international foods store for under $2. Chebe was costing me $6-7 per 7 oz bag. I haven't tried to make their bread and other products like this, but it works for the pizza crust for sure. Tastes just like the Chebe pizza crust mix. Yum!

That's a good tip, I'll remember that. I bought my Chebe online so it comes out to about $2.50 per package which isn't bad. I have yet to venture into any of the Asian or other international markets we have around here, but I really need to do that! :)

$2.50 is a really good price! I may have to check out that site that starts with A for other things. I bought my first couple bags of Chebe from my local Allergy friendly store. I really do want to keep supporting them, but the mark-up is so high it kills me to buy everything there. I will keep making my tapioca pizza crust from scratch however because I can't tell the difference between it and Chebe.
