This past week, Franz Bakehouse sent me 3 new gluten free bread products to try out: hamburger buns and 2 loaves of bread. Franz Bakehouse Gluten free products are all certified gluten-free. Franz gluten free breads and buns are available here in the Northwest (Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Western Montana- Billing and west, and California- North of Chico).  I’ve seen them at my local Fred Meyer, Rosauers, and Wal-Mart stores.

Franz Bakehouse GF Hamburger Buns_72dpiFriday night we tried out the hamburger buns with our favorite hamburgers cooked on the grill. We like our buns a little toasted, so my hubby threw them on the grill for a few minutes. The grill gave a little crunch to the outside, but inside they were soft and chewy. The best part: they didn’t fall apart! Everyone that has tried gluten free hamburger buns before can attest to how they so often fall apart, making it difficult to enjoy the whole thing. These stayed together completely and were given 2 thumbs up from all of us.


Franz Bakehouse GF 7 Grains Bags

This weekend, we enjoyed both of the loaves of bread. We used the bread for grilled cheese sandwiches, breakfast toast, and for turkey sandwiches for lunch.  The bread holds together nicely and was liked by everyone. Really, the 7-Grain bread reminds me of a good whole-grain (wheat) bread served at a deli. I really think you could serve the 7-Grain bread to someone and they would not guess it was gluten-free. Score!!



Franz Bakehouse GF Mountain White BreadThe Mountain White is a great basic bread that I think would make some yummy French Toast as well. Like the 7-Grain, you don’t have to toast it for it to be good, like so many other store-bought gluten free breads.

Franz Gluten Free is... The BEST Gluten Free Bread Ever! I live in Florida and wish my Costco or any store would carry it. I order it online at for nearly $8 a loaf or pkg of buns and order 4 loafs at time. I do and greats seads, a 7 grain and two pkgs. of hamburger buns. If you order 4 loafs the shipping is free. I know it's expensive.... but it's worth it!

My gluten free bread molded after just one day! Is that normal? There were no care instructions on the package stating it had to be refrigereatrex but it is by far the best gluten free bread I have EVER HAD!

Mine went spoiled pretty quickly as well and weeks before the date on package. I am in socal and was surprised to see it (new to me) at my smart and final. I stored in fridge after opening somif I buy again think I will try freezing. I thought it was a good texture so not willing to write the product off so quickly.

I tired this today and just not good! It has a very odd after taste, I toasted it and that did not even make a difference. Oh well, I will not buy it again.

My daughter tried this gf bread while visiting Yosemite and I called the people at Franz's and was told Winco and Walmart carries their product. Sadly we have been unable to find it. We live in central California.

I tried this bread while visiting Boise Idaho. It is the best gluten free bread I've had. It does stay together when you make a sandwich without toasting. I cannot find it in Nebraska which makes me sad. The long shelf life is great and because of that I wish the stores around here would consider stocking it. Thanks for making a great product!
