Need Good Bread Mix

Since I sub for a single class at a local college I don't work often, but today is one of my lucky days I get to spend sharing my wealth of knowledge. Okay, it isn't that illustrious, I actually just sit at a desk reading my ebooks and waiting for people to have questions. Anyway, in the past I've always brought a sandwich for lunch with some fruit or something. It's always just the right thing to get me through my day and to dinner without feeling like I may gnaw off my arm before I go home.

Today, instead of a sandwich I am enjoying a salad and chocolate tapioca pudding. (which is divine by the way) Why? Because yesterday I wanted a sandwich for lunch and didn't consider the fact that I was using my last two slices of bread. All of the local stores that carry Udi's close at midnight or earlier and I didn't realize until about 15 minutes past midnight that I have no bread in the house. When I got to the closest 24 hour store the only bread they had was $7 and I almost died right there in the aisle. Instead I picked up a mix which turned out to be awful. (Okay, not totally inedible but certainly not anything I can make a sandwich with.)

The bread I got and liked was Udi's whole grain and I am wondering what mixes anyone could recommend that would be similar in texture and taste. I do intend to learn to make bread without a mix but for now I want to see what sorts of things I like before I start experimenting. Any suggestions for what to try would be greatly appreciated.

I tried a bunch of gluten-free bread mixes. My favorites were Bob's Red Mill Wonderful Bread and Hearty Whole Grain mixes. The Hearty Whole Grain is good enough that "glutenoids" will eat it. Unfortunately, while I really like the flavor I think the texture is kind of crumbly for sandwiches. I would usually bring a slice of bread and a hunk of cheese packed separately. I haven't found a mix that makes bread that holds together for sandwiches the way Udi's does.

My family really likes Pamela's bread mix. It is wonderful and just right for sandwiches, imo. I have a pan in the oven as we speak.

Croissants!?! I never imagined I'd have one again, breakfast sandwiches were the farthest thing from my mind until 10 seconds ago.

Thanks for the tips on what everyone likes. It's all well and good to read what I can find on the manufacturer websites but they're only gonna say what they need to say to sell me bread mix. I much prefer to trust the opinions of people who aren't after my money.

I buy one called Easy Baker which is nice, but not sure if it's available there.

For a quick, fresh, homemade gluten free bun, nothing beats a customized, "bun-'n-a-cup" baked in the microwave in a small bowl, ramekin, or soup cup, made out of ingredients you chose yourself.

I have been meaning to try this with the Pamela's mix, and just made one that worked beautifully.

Pamela Bun- in-a- Cup

use a scant 1/2 cup of Pamela's gluten-free Pancake Mix

dry:

a pinch of baking soda

a wee pinch of cream of tartar

a scant sprinkle of salt

any spices or flavorings you would like, such as cumin, cinnamon, Chinese 5 spice, anise, sesame, or poppyseed, cocoa powder or grated citrus peel, optional.

__

wet:

in a bowl put:

about a teaspoon of olive oil to a tablespoon, depending on taste and how moist/dry you prefer

1/2 teaspoon of pure apple cider vinegar

a tiny glop of molasses, optional

honey to taste, or any other sweetener, about a half teaspoon, optional

1 egg

beat the wet ingredients together

Add the dry Pamela's mixture to it, then add more water and mix as needed to get a wet dough, this will depend on the size of the egg, about 1 to 2 tablespoons water.

place the dough in a small, lightly oiled ramekin, miniature single serving casserole dish, large flat soup mug or cereal bowl.

microwave for 1 minute on high. Test for doneness by pressing with finger, should be springy, then take a table knife and stick it in, seeing that when the knife is still dry. Some deep round bowls take longer. Keep microwaving in 15 second increments until done.

Makes 1 bun

_____

note: altho the Pamela's mixes already do have leavening, adding a tiny bit more helps this recipe as it cooks so quickly.

    • Hey All, I was wondering if anyone has tried gluten free pizza? I'm specifically talking about the store bought kind. I'm looking for a cheat meal - I've been eating mainly non processed fresh food but I need a little something to stay sane every now and then. I'm from New York so i'd say I have a pretty high standard of pizza lol. Are there any good frozen ones that are worth eating? I don't think i've ever eaten a frozen pizza in my life but I don't particularly have the time right now to make my own.  Also while I'm posting I figure i'll ask. I'm going to this event with my friend at her work. It's like a dinner party. How do I navigate this situation food wise? Should I just eat at home and get drinks there or plan to eat there but take snacks just in case nothing seems safe?  Thanks guys!
    • Hi Dalek, JMG has it right, any food with wheat, rye or barley is a gluten containing food.  In addition, watch out for malt, which is sometimes made from barley.  That includes the malt in beers.
    • Interesting!! I'm going to share that with her dr. I'll have to look into the gluten sensitivity more myself, the main reason we started testing is due to poor growth. As I learned more, I've seen several symptoms that could be explained by celiac. I like feeling informed so I'll know what to talk to the dr about or ask about. I think those are the results we are waiting for still, I couldn't remember the name.
    • Call your doctor's office and ask them to relay your request to the doctor to amend the test request, they should be able to sort it without an additional meeting and delay. Worth a try anyway I think the Biocard tests TTG IGA and it may give you an indication. Do post your results here as I'm sure others will be interested in its effectiveness. If it's negative however remember that there are several celiac tests for a reason. Some test on one, some on another etc... However my guess is your doctor will dismiss them and want their own testing. That's the usual experience. 
    • Waiting for the EMA, I bet.  Keep advocating! this is interesting.  If celiac disease is excluded, she might still have a gluten sensitivity.  There just is not specific test for that. http://theglutensummittranscripts.s3.amazonaws.com/Dr_Umberto_Volta.pdf
