A Gluten Free Bread That Tastes Good?
I. love. bread.
I love the crunch of the crust. The fluff of the inner. The way butter melts on it.
How perfect I found it to go with hot tea. Bread is just an amazing invention.
What I don’t like is how I feel after I eat it…. my stomach aches. My rashes flare up. I even get headaches. So what is one to do?
I’ve tried making my own gluten-free breads and let’s just say that the kids had a really fun time playing with the dough. I’ve hit up the health food stores and their interesting gluten-free isles. I found a few possibilities but they most fell short of my gluten packed comparison.
Except the Udi’s Gluten-Free line. I’ve actually bought a few products before being asked if I’d like to try some of their quick breakfast solutions. So naturally a brand I was already familiar with – you bet. I’ll warn you now that I have little photos of us actually eating the items as they were GONE before I had the cardboard boxes out to the recycling.
I wouldn’t have expected anything else with four
vultures growing boys in the household. The muffins were a HUGE hit and on the grocery list this week to get some more. As is the granola, especially my favorite the blueberry cashew. But let me focus on one that I wish I got a photo of but I totally forgot so please accept my apologies! Okay, I’m really not sorry as well I was too focused on enjoying it.
Udi’s Gluten-Free Mighty Bagel
After the boys got done
attacking selecting their muffins and devoured them. That morning I actually had a few quiet moments to myself. Jealous, aren’t you! I grabbed my favorite tea mug, filling it to the brim with the seaming aroma of my black tea. Placed the pre-sliced bagel into the oven to crisp a bit. Then slathered my favorite local cream cheese all over it.
It wasn’t until then that I sat down to actually eat it. While doing the typical “cereal box” reading of the packaging. What was in these bagels? What made them so mighty?
Hmmm…These are actually pretty good. Bagel gone. Tea drank. I was a happy camper. I had just found a replacement to my once-in-a-while toasted treat! While it wasn’t as light and flaky as a piece of bread it had the typical dense texture one would expect of a bagel. It toasted well and filled my belly much faster and longer then I expected.
