One of my biggest beefs about my celiac disease diagnosis was the end of the “Non-Goopy Sandwich” era. The gluten-free sandwich bread of five years ago was very porous. As a lover of liquidy condiments – mustard, hummus, jelly, honey, nut butters – I was forced to turn to gluten-free bagels as a substitute. That answer works well, but the sandwich then becomes all about the bread, not the filling. I’m always on the look-out for bread that will fulfill the tastiness, portability and non-drippy requirements of a quality sandwich, and I think I’ve found it.

Schar Artisan Baker White Bread: Tomatoe, Lettuce, Mustard and Hummus Sandwich

Finally! A non-goopy sandwich!

Last night, I put together a tomato, lettuce, mustard and hummus sandwich on Schar’s new Artisan Baker White Bread. A messy quartet, to be sure. I lightly toasted the bread (out of habit, frankly), assembled the sandwich, and ate without spillage. Eureka! The bread was porous but thick enough to prevent leakage. I did not have to rush through the sandwich before it disintegrated. I got to enjoy every bite, allowing the flavors to mingle with the right amount of chewing. And good-tasting too! Like bread! I definitely would not kick this bread out of my sandwich repertoire. Thanks, Schar!

    Since I have found Schar GF, Dairy free, egg free, lactose free, wheat free bread, I have been TOTALLY IN LOVE!!!!! I am also a mild celiac but regular bread just tears me up and my legs/feet swell to twice their normal size. I had to stop eating regular bread. A friend brought me a loaf of this bread a few weeks ago and I was TOTALLY AMAZED AT HOW WONDERFUL AND DELICIOUS it tasted. Never before in my life have I tasted GF bread this good. It has always tasted like cardboard. Now I’m on the hunt as to where I can buy it online for what I can get it in the store. In the store it is approx 4.50 per loaf. But, online it is anywhere from 5.5 to 7.00 per loaf and I cannot do that. Any suggestions? Thanks for a GREAT BREAD!!!
