Gluten-Free Pantry : favorite sandwich bread mix

While I was waiting for my test results to come back, I ran across this marked half-off in my local grocery store so I decided to give it a try.

My first bite was very disappointing but it is growing on me a little bit. I think my expectation of the taste and texture to be like wheat bread was completely unreasonable. It helps if I think of it as something else entirely.

This was my first "gluten-free" product and bread is probably the worst thing to try to make without gluten so it probably wasn't a good place to start. I'm off to the store to get some GF pasta....

The GF breads don't have the same dough texture, so normal bread making techniques fail miserably. We find the bread machine or the dough blade in the food processor work great and the bread comes out pretty close to the real thing :) Just a little tip to help on your journey.
