Sandwiches: what's on the outside?

What do I miss most about my old life? Back in the days when I could eat gluten? Well, I have to say it must be sandwiches. 

I began to realize, when I started my lifestyle change, that I ate sandwiches often. And liked them.
That all came to a screeching halt when I reluctantly gave up gluten. But then I started missing them.

Oh, for sure, I found I could have a lettuce wrap with tuna salad or egg salad, as a sandwich substitute.  But I have to be honest. It's always a bit messier.

So I began looking for gluten-free bread that would make a good sandwich.

The first thing I noticed is that many of the loves were, shall we say, rather petite!  Small square loaves. And they didn't taste very good, even if I toasted them.

Well, and that's another thing I missed on occasion. A nice slice of toast to slather with my homemade apple butter.

So after experimenting with loaves by companies like Schar, Food for Life, EnerG, Kinnikinnick Food, and Glutino, I circled back to the company I highlight last post: Udi's.  And especially Udi's Whole Grain Bread.

And guess what?  I'm not the only one who thinks that.  A taste test by Huffington Post ended up with Udi's Whole Grain on top!

So that means I can still have a slice of toast or a sandwich on occasion--and enjoy it!

If you are exploring gluten-free breads, have you found one you thought was great?
