The days are becoming longer and you can actually be outside to enjoy the weather. That is when my BBQ skills get put to work the most. I have looked at many gluten free hamburger buns and I have my favourite now.
Buying Gluten Free Buns?
I like to do meal planning. So that means I have my meal ingredients on my grocery list before I go, so I can everything I need once I get home and get cooking. Nothing makes me mad, like when I cannot find something I need at the grocery store. Sometimes I am quick on my feet to find an alternative and sometimes I feel like I need to have a tantrum in the grocery aisle.
What I have learned from these experiences, is that sometimes I just need to order some products online, so I can have a stock of them always available to me. I find it easier to do meal planning because I already have them frozen in my freezer, so I can get some meal ideas just with looking at what I have.
Gluten Free Hamburger Buns
There is nothing worst than having a small bun and a big burger. Okay, maybe I am exaggerating, but it is annoying. That is why the size of the bun matters.
You also don’t want the bun to completely crumble when you touch it, because then it is less a burger and more of a casserole. But I am happy to see so many companies try to master gluten free baking, because I am not good at it.

Gluten Free Bun
I like to eat hamburgers and sloppy joes for lunch or supper. They are some of those comfort foods that just feels good. I know that I am not alone, so keep reading to find out what my recommendation is.
Like I already mentioned, size is important too, because no one wants a bun that is smaller than the burger!
The taste of the bun is clearly important because we still need food that tastes good to us. Not to mention, we are likely feeding people who don’t need to eat gluten free and we want them to enjoy it too.

Best Gluten Free Hamburger Buns
This was a close one, but the best one is Three Bakers Whole Grain Gluten-Free Hamburger Buns. There was good taste and texture, which is always important. Another big factor is whether you can actually eat your burger without the bun crumbling. And the Three Bakers bun was pretty good in this regard.
Gluten Free Burger Buns
While I may not eat these products daily, they are definitely part of my meals in the summer. I haven’t been able to find the Three Bakers products in my home town, so I order those online. I can find the Udis products in the freezer aisle, so sometimes I purchase those.
