Gluten-free Wide Loaf Bread (review & recipe)
Make room for Canyon Bakehouse’s all new Big Slice bread.
What is better than a deliciously stacked, homemade sandwich? How about being able to make it on a Heritage style, Gluten-free Wide Loaf?! That’s right, I said gluten-free :).
I’m always a little skeptical before tasting packaged GF bread, probably because I have tried so many horrible tasting ones. Some taste like cardboard, others taste like nothing and most of them are simply as hard as a rock. Because of this, and the fact that I don’t actually have to eat gluten-free, I typically opt for sprouted wheat bread or simply none at all. However, I’m always looking to find an option that is free from wheat or gluten, especially for my son’s benefit. Because of that, I was thrilled when I heard about Canyon Bakehouse’s new Heritage style, Gluten-free Wide Loaf which is making its debut in stores nationwide very, very soon!
Uses Real Ingredients
Their “need-both-hands-to handle” loaf comes in Honey White and Whole Grain and are made with natural ingredients, low in fat, non-GMO and full of flavor. They not only are gluten-free but also free from dairy, peanuts, tree nuts, soy, sesame & casein (they do contain eggs). What I really loved was that these larger than average slices taste like real bread! Golden baked crust on the outside, soft chewy center in the middle and no falling apart when you pick it up! These loaves are so, so soft! Really! My husband didn’t even realize he was eating gluten-free bread and that’s a HUGE deal!
Stack It up
Of course I had to put this bread through a few challenges. How does it toast? Beautifully! How does it freeze & defrost? Perfectly! How does it taste? Not gluten-free! How does it stack? Well…. I layered this bread with all the good stuff. Vegan cheese, Sriracha, jalapeños, pepperoncinis, avocado slices, mushrooms, tomatoes, onions and little lettuce of course. And guess what, no breaking!! No soggy middle. Just pure deliciousness!
This monster of a veggie sandwich was built for sharing, which was exactly what I did!
