Safe Sandwich "bread" Substitute?

14 posts in this topic

Hi, everyone...!

Just getting started here and am finding many of my usual sandwich products are gluten-free - but what is out there we can put them on (or between) instead of bread?! I'm assuming the corn tortillas would be ok, but are there other options?

Thanks so much!

Try Glutino's Genius sandwich bread. It is awesome. Lots of people here like Udi's as well.

Most of these are in the frozen section of Whole Foods and other groceries, even Target. Haven't seen them at Walmart but that ccaries by Walmart

I like Canyon Bakehouse San Juan 7 grain. Its more of a "whole wheat" style bread. http://canyonbakehouse.com/

I also like to get Corn Thins or Rice cakes and put cold cuts, cheese, spinach and a smidge of salad dressings on them http://www.cornthins.com/

Udis hamburger buns http://udisglutenfree.com/

Rudis makes tortillas http://www.rudisglut...-free/products/ read the label carefullly as they have 2 bakeries - one not gluten-free

Sandwich petals http://www.sandwichp...m/main_content/ my HyVee grocery carries these now

Lettuce leaves - I like taco filling or shredded BBQ or left over stir fry this way

Corn tortillas & taco shells

Roll up cheese, lettuce, etc in a piece or two of cold cuts

I love Udi's and Rudi's breads, both are good especially if toasted.

I will say though, neither can compare to arepas for a sandwich. I use PAN brand meal, it does have a cc warning but the bakery I frequent uses it also and tests it for gluten. It has never in all the time they've been testing it, come up positive for gluten. I have also never gotten sick from it. I also wouldn't expect a brand recommendation from gluten free girl for something that would make me sick. (On top of all that, I've never been able to find a different brand!)

These are super easy and super fast to make. Even in my early days when I was having more bad days than good I had the energy to make these. The instructions with pictures in the link are exception and idiot proof if even I can make them!

I agree with Adalaide re arepas. Focaccia bread (easy to make) sliced in half makes great sandwiches, too, as do bagels and English muffins.

I like Canyon Bakehouse San Juan 7 grain better than Rudi's because Rudi's seems to fall apart. Other than that, the taste is very similar. And if you get Udi's, make sure it is the MULT-GRAIN, not the white. It has the taste and texture of french bread. YUM!

Hi, Adalaide!

 

I did order the PAN meal and tried making these arepas - even after watching many videos on how to do it properly, for some reason mine came out extremely DRY and TASTELESS!  Any idea what I might have done wrong?!! I had such high hopes for this because it sounds so awesome - and my hubby LOVES "corn bread" - so I thought this might be a double-treat for both me and him.  But he hated these!  I know I had to have missed something because everyone raves about how wonderful they taste.  I don't know if I didn't use enough salt - ?  Or enough butter or if it's something else people use to make them tastier and less crumbly!  ??

It is possible that they weren't wet enough. But the only ingredients really are the oil, water, salt and flour. Their flavor is much like an English muffin when they come out right, or at least that is what they remind me of. The gluten free girl website explains that it can take several tries before you get them right, and it isn't a big deal. Try again, don't be discouraged.

 

They don't take butter at all, except when you eat them. If you used a recipe other than the one I linked, I would recommend throwing that recipe right out the window because it is wrong. This recipe comes from a girl whose mother is from Venezuela. The directions are as learned from that girl. It doesn't get any better than this.

Okay, I will give it another try(!) - I honestly don't remember which recipe I ended up going with because I watched SO many videos on it...  This time I WILL stick with that one, though :)

Once you get the hang of it, it is fun. It pained me greatly but I read the entire article in every last detail and it covered everything I ever wanted to know and lots I didn't need to about arepas. :lol: Even if you have a few more flops, don't give in.

If you like rye bread, the Schar Deli-Style bread is a fairly good facsimile.  It breaks apart a bit easily, but is pretty good.

    • Yes you are correct. Interestingly my genes in the US are thought to be more associated with RA. Which is something they thought I had prediagnosis. In the Middle and far East they are more likely to be associated with celiac and they are rare genes in Caucasians which I am according to my parents known heritage. I always caution folks not to take the gene tests as absolute proof they can't have celiac because I had one child who had positive blood and biopsy, did well on the diet, then got genes tested in young adulthood and was told they could never be celiac. Of course that resulted in her abandoning the diet. I worry but hope someday doctors will realise we still have a lot to learn about the genetics of this disease. PS While I still have some deformity in my hands my joint pain resolved after a few months on the diet.
    • It seems like you really need a concrete or near concrete answer so I would say maybe you ought to get the gene testing. Then you can decide on the gluten challenge.   Thanks! I am convinced our dogs are there waiting for us. Meanwhile they are playing, running, laughing, barking & chasing. I have another favorite quote dealing with dogs: "If a dog will not come to you after having looked you in the face, you should go home & examine your conscience."  ~~~ Woodrow Wilson ~~~
    • I can't help thinking that all of this would be so much easier if the doctor I went to 10 years ago would have done testing for celiac, rather than tell me I probably should avoid gluten. He was looking to sell allergy shots and hormone treatment, he had nothing to gain from me being diagnosed celiac. I've been messing around ever since, sort-of-most-of the time being gluten free but never being strict about it. I really feel like three months of eating gluten would do my body a lot of permanent damage. I've got elevated liver enzymes for the third time since 2008 and no cause can be found which might be good, I guess. I wonder if it would be reasonable to do the HLA testing first, to decide if I really need to do the gluten challenge. If the biopsy is negative, that is. Squirmingitch, love your tag line about dogs in heaven. We lost the best dog ever last December. I sure hope all my dogs are there waiting for me!
    • Most (90%-95%) patients with celiac disease have 1 or 2 copies of HLA-DQ2 haplotype (see below), while the remainder have HLA-DQ8 haplotype. Rare exceptions to these associations have been occasionally seen. In 1 study of celiac disease, only 0.7% of patients with celiac disease lacked the HLA alleles mentioned above. Results are reported as permissive, nonpermissive, or equivocal gene pairs. From: http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-catalog/Clinical+and+Interpretive/88906  
    • This is not quite as cut & dried as it sounds. Although rare, there are diagnosed celiacs who do not have either of those genes. Ravenwoodglass, who posted above, is one of those people. I think she has double DQ9 genes? Am I right Raven?  My point is, that getting the gene testing is not an absolute determination either way.
