Just starting to eat gluten free and I am wondering what bread is everyones favorite.  Frozen premade or recipe to make it. I do have a gluten free setting on my breadmaker. Also what type flour. This is the thing I am most sad about! I just want Grandma Sycamore to make gluten free bread!! Wish it was just an easy thing that tasted just like regular white bread.

Udi's is pretty good.

Most all GF bread tastes best toasted.

I like Rudi's better than Udi's, and Schar's best of all. I totally agree about toasting it. I also find that one slice is very very filling and I don't eat it very often.

I have never tried baking it at home and I doubt I ever will. I did try a GF pizza crust at home and it was horrible. The precooked frozen ones made with brown rice flour do just fine.

I like Udi's. Rudy's does taste better, but it hard to pull apart frozen without breaking apart sometimes. I only eat GF bread store bought toasted. Aldi's now has reasonably priced GF products reasonably priced under the LiveWell brand name. They sell non frozen GF bread for around $3.99 that is decent.

Udi's is one of my fiance favorites, I always lightly toast to make sandwiches. He loves to use the ends toasted to have with his Chex GF Oatmeal. I have made him homemade bread from Red Mill and it isn't bad. I have also used Red Mill GF flours to make him pineapple upside down cake and lots of other goodies.

BTW. Walmart carries GF pizza (forget the name brand). We get the plain and put all the toppings on that we want, directions say to put on cookie sheet but we put directly on the oven rack & the crust browns up nicely. I really like it and I don't have to eat GF.

I realise this is a slightly old thread that someone has pulled up again recently - I usually haunt the chronic pain forum but happened to wander in the other day on the off-chance that there was a recipe thread somewhere (do not test positive as coeliac, but have a pretty well established gluten well as a host of other issues).

Not sure how it turns out in a bread maker - I make it by hand and bake in the oven - but the best recipe I've found (texture wise at least...I'm still tinkering with it to improve the flavour) is the "Champion Sandwich Bread" on

Best gf brand I've ever found is 'Gluten Freedom' - which is a New Zealand brand I discovered on holidays a few weeks ago and now lamenting the fact I didn't try to smuggle any home and can't find any here in Australia. On taste/texture alone, I doubt I'd have known I was eating GF...

Apparently I followed CRPSpatient over from the "chronic pain" board. ;-)

After going through brand after brand of store bought GF bread, I agree....Udi's or Rudy's and only if it's toasted. And only two or three slices cuz even those become notsogood as I lament over what I can no longer have. So REALLY....mostly the bread gets dried out in the oven and crushed into breadcrumbs for meatloaf or fried chicken or onion rings. And it's cheaper than buying the GF prepackaged breadcrumbs, go figure. :-/
