Being gluten free can be hard – you go to parties and restaurants and have to find something you can eat. There are places starting to carry gluten free buns at some select restaurants – but how often do you have to order your burger without a bun? Or worse – wrapped in lettuce (yuck).
Since I went gluten free six years ago there have been a lot of companies that have come out with soft breads. They range from gross, disgusting, passable, OK and some are actually decent. One thing most of them still lack is the ability to stay together like real bread – after all, that’s what the gluten is there for.
I think I’ve tried most brands out there now. They’ve come a long way in the past six years. So I was very excited when Kinnikinnick sent me their soft breads and buns to review. I have been a fan of their cookies in the past years.
When the box arrived I rushed in the house to open it. Through the cardboard box I could smell the bread – the smell of fresh bread filled the room. I actually found myself sniffing the box before I sliced it open. Inside was a loaf of white bread, multi-grain bread, hamburger buns and hot dog buns. All were soft and looked (and smelled) freshly made.
Like all gluten free breads if you’re not using them right away they should be refrigerated or frozen. Since I was leaving for a couple days the majority of the box were tossed into the freezer. The loaf of white bread was left out to make lunch with.
In my years of being gluten free I’ve had a hard time making some of my favorite things. One of them being grilled ham and cheese. Some gluten free breads haven’t held up to making grilled cheese, others just don’t taste right. Not only did the Kinnikinnick white bread make the perfect grilled cheese, it even grilled perfectly. We later found out that the multi-grain bread makes a mean grilled cheese as well!
As I mentioned before, finding a good gluten free bun can be a problem. But the soft buns from Kinnikinnick make the perfect burger. It was honestly a treat to have a burger on a bun at home again, instead of just eating it with a fork.
I have loved each of the soft breads and buns, and loved the ease of making the meals with them. If I’m in the mood for something with them I thaw out what I need and prepare dinner while it thaws. The even smell freshly baked right after they thaw too! What a delicious treat!
