So, I haven't blogged for a while, because I got this crazy idea that I should go back to school back in the spring. It's going well, but even with just two classes a semester, it's a bit of a time-suck, but I promise I'm going to try to get better about sharing recipes and product reviews more on the regular. For now, though, I wanted to jump back into things with an absolutely amazing gluten-free bread I've found.
Back in 2012, I checked out Schar's White Bread Rolls, and they were pretty darn tasty. As I mentioned then, I don't really buy a lot of pre-made GF bread things, for a variety of reasons, but mostly because a lot of times they're terrible. If something tastes like a cardboard box, putting chicken salad or ham'n'cheese ain't gonna make it taste less like a cardboard box. It's just going to taste like a cardboard box with toppings.
Anyway, I decided to treat myself to something nice (or at least, so I hoped) and bought a package of Schar's Deli-Style Bread. It looked interesting. It looked like it had texture. It looked like - dare I say it? - a soft rye. Color me intrigued.
I was hungry. I used TWO slices and I'm not ashamed to admit it.
In fact, I made an absolutely lovely grilled turkey and cheese sandwich with pesto mayo on it. The bread has a great flavor, it's soft enough that you could eat it without toasting or grilling it, and it holds together beautifully. Did I mention it has a great flavor? Seriously, guys, it tastes like a light rye (the company's website says it's sourdough, but I'm not really getting that sourdough vibe at all).
