Udi's gluten-free Buns

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Had a cookout tonight with friends and I took my own burger and a Udi's bun. This was my first time trying them and they were awesome! It was the best burger I've eaten since going gluten free. I was full after just one burger but it was so good I'm considering eating one for a midnight snack....or I'll probably wait until breakfast. :lol:

Just had to share. They were expensive at $8.xx for a bag of 4 buns but well worth the price.

I tried one for the first time last night. They are the best I've tried, that is for sure. At $2 per bun they are pricey but they will be a treat. I do not think I will even bother making buns any longer! I am impressed.

That says a lot coming from YOU! I had low expectations to be honest, because while Udi's bread is edible to me and makes a decent toasted sandwhich I think it's over-rated by fans on this board. I really prefer Rudi's for pre-made bread. I have made homemade that tasted better right from the oven, but I don't like to go to the trouble of making bread often. I had been using Schar's buns as they were only ones I could get in my area. Schar's are like cardboard compared to Udi's and they are about the same price. My normal supplier of Schar buns was out so I made a longer trip to the gluten-free store and was excited to see they now have the new Udi's buns (hamburger AND hotdog). Yay! They will be a treat for me for sure but it was so good and no symptoms so far. They are also dairy free and soy free for anyone wondering. :D

I found the Udi's hamburger buns on sale at our local Byerly's. Just thought people in the Twin Cities would like to know!

I haven't tried the hamburger buns yet because they are so expensive (I can get them for $7/4) but I've bought the hot dog buns several times now ($6/6) and I love them.

My youngest son likes them. First time I tried them I wasn't all that impressed, but tonight I toasted one and liked it a whole lot more. It still is nice to "seem" normal. :P

I found them a little dry, maybe toasting them would help. Or maybe I just got a stale package. I actually like the Canyon Bakehouse ones better, but both are quite good.

I heated them in the microwave for 30 seconds prior to use and they became as soft and moist as I remmember plain white buns to be. Without any heat right out of the package they do feel like a stale dry bun. I would not eat them without heating first.

I had a hotdog for July 4th as a special treat, haven't had one in over a year. I wrapped the Udi hotdog bun frozen in foil sprinkled a little water on it to warm. I kept an eye on it and it turned out soft. It was wonderful with a Nathans hotdog.

On a recent trip through barbeque heaven (North Carolina) I took my own Udi's buns and asked at several places to have my barbeque on my bun. Each place, after I explained how important it is to not touch real bread, was very careful and I had wonderful barbeque for a week.

By the way, I find that humor helps get cooperation. I often laugh and say "I'm the customer from Hell" This will usually get attention. A little lightness works better for me than making demands.

Thanks! Next time I will microwave them.

Our local Ruby's restaurant now carries Udi's gluten-free burger buns. I had one and it was pretty good!
