Challah, Brioche, call it what you like, you love it all the same.
And so do we.
Living gluten free can feel like the walls are closing in.

Your doctor smiles brightly and says-

Bread is a crucial human food.
We went through round after round of bread testing.
Because we care about you.
Well, because we care about you andwe were really craving a crusty loaf of bread.
This is the gateway recipe you’ve been waiting for. Once you’ve tried it you’ll graduate to French toast, bread pudding, Thanksgiving stuffing. And all of it Gluten Free, of course.
Being GF won’t stop us from breaking bread with our brothers.
So go on, get your fix.

- 2 Eggs, Room temperature
