Help with gluten free bread and gravy.

I am gluten intolerant and have yet to find a gluten free bread that does not have to be toasted. Am I asking for too much at this time? Is there anyone out there that has found a really good gluten free bread. If so, please share your findings with me and others. If we eat out and I take my bread with me it has to go into the toaster that is used by other breads. This is not really a good thing to do as you know. Also it is impossible to made a sandwich for the beach or a picnic because toasters are not available. I would love to enjoy a good sandwich at the beach again. I have been gluten free for 8 years now.


If you have a recipe, or a ready made bread, that meets my needs I would really appreciate hearing from you. Or maybe you would just share the name of your favorite bread. Thank you so much for helping. By helping each other on sites like this we can improve our lives and get as close to "normal" eating as possible.

Stay healthy because you are special,
Ursula
P.S.
Does anyone make a good gluten free gravy for a roast beef or other meats? I just called Gravy master Inc. In CT USA and they say they are gluten free. That is good news for our gravies.

Gluten free
by: Ruacafe

Gluten free bread that doesn't taste gluten free is the hardest to find. So far, my favorite has been Aldi's gluten free wraps and Kinnikinnick's white bread (can be found in frozen food section). I know you didn't ask about it, but I have found a great gluten free pasta. Tinkyada brand rice pasta, tastes almost identical to regular pasta and it cooks up just like regular pasta, it even taste good reheated!

Gf bread and bread crumbs
by: Jmr

Three Bakers makes a frozen multigrain bread that is wonderful plain or toasted. Nice texture, good ingredients, and it doesn't taste like sawdust. For bread crumbs I use 4C gf seasoned bread crumbs with Pecorino/ Romano cheese. Larger stores like ShopRite carry both. The bread is about $4/loaf but still less expensive than that from private bakeries.

gluten free bread

Don't know where you live, but on Long Island, New York there is a place called Bare Naked Bakery. They make the best white bread hands down and you DON'T have to toast it to make it taste good. Not sure, but I think they make ship to you. Good luck. I know how hard it is!

UK Problem
by: Laura Jones

Hello,

I am writing on behalf of my 15 years old sister, were both from the UK. She was diagnosed at the age of 10 months with Coeliac disease and over the years it has been a torment for her. At the age of 9 the Docs thought she had been wrongly diagnosed and put her on a 'normal' diet for a year. She got used to eating normally to then be told she did in fact have Coeliac. When we order take out, all she can order is a can of coke and we have to try and make a substitute meal for her. Recently, supermarkets in the UK had now cut the products on sale for her. So we can no longer buy cakes, gravy, pizza's and so on for her. I feel so sorry for her.

Bagels
by: Allison

The BEST gluten free bagels - Joans gluten free bakes! See if you can find them in a store near you, because the shipping is ridiculous from her site. I am trying the bread next!

Great gf bread
by: Alyssa

I too have been searching for bread that does not need toasting. There is a diet store in Ronkonkoma, NY that I visit frequently and the owner is FULL of knowledge about Celiac and really backs all of her products. I hadn't been in there in a while and when I walked in, she immmediately came running up to me claiming she had the best gluten free bread EVER! After taste testing it, I discovered she was absoluitely correct! The brand is called "Udi's." I have only tried "Whole Grain" and it is seriously delicious! I have no idea if you can find it where you guys are but if you can, I 100% recommend it!

Gluten Free Breadcrumbs
by: Anonymous

I also am not happy with the gluten free bread situation. I went to Germany 3 times this year - and they are so far ahead of us here in the US. The breads are in bakeries - and the pasta is better - mostly corn, but it tastes really nice and it is cheaper than what is available online or in the supermarkets.

2 things i wanted to share - if you have to toast bread - whole foods prarie bread is great (has to be toasted) - but in NY it is also 7.99 a loaf which is expensive. I am thinking to buy a bread-maker and do it myself. Cant be any worse than most of what is availible right now?

NOW THE GOOD PART -

I save all the heals of bread - and i toast them - to make my own breadcrumbs. I use it in everything. It is a bit of work - so do it in large batches - but there is the whacked combination i discovered works - in meatballs, meatloaf, egged and bread, fried chicken cuttlets - etc...

i take whole foods prarie bread, some glutino - crackers (plain)
glutino - pretzles (which taste better than any regular brand pretzel - all my non gluten friends thinks so too.

i add a lil italian cheese, no salt - there is enough there from pretzeles and cheese. some pepper and i put it into a food chopper till it is ground and looks like regular breadcrumbs.

It took me a year to get it right - but these were all of the carb stuff i liked - so it made sense to experiment.

good luck to all.

gluten free gravy
by: Anonymous

I have made great gluten free gravy for roast beef and chicken and turkey. For the chicken I used corn starch and for the roast beef and turkey I used '365' gluten free baking mix (a brand I find at Whole Foods). My husband who is not gluten free thinks it tastes just like when I used to make it with regular flour.

As far as bread....I'm still looking.
