Gluten Free Bagel Sandwich

Gluten Free Bagel Sandwich

Pair this upgraded bagel sandwich with some fresh grapes and a yogurt parfait – lunch time will thank you!

A sandwich isn’t just a sandwich when you add in toasted buns and blackberry jam.

Iremember that one of the toughest things about getting started with a gluten free diet was bread. I loved bread. My mother was always baking a loaf on the weekends and I practically lived off of breadsticks and pizza in college. I have yet to find (or create!) a doughy, fluffy breadstick that is perfect with a plate of spaghetti.

I always say, the top three things I miss are Little Caesars pizza, Subway sandwiches on herb and cheese bread, and Olive Garden breadsticks. I have yet to master any of these as gluten free alternatives in my kitchen, but for now, I have a delicious gluten free bagel sandwich! Gluten free bagels are pretty widely available these days, but my favorites are the plain gluten free bagels at Aldi. They’re under $4 and have one of the fluffiest textures I’ve found in a store-bought gluten free bread.

This may seem like a simple recipe – and it is – but sometimes the simplest recipes give you the most delicious food. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve whipped one of these up for a Harry Potter marathon or the dreaded “I have a paper due in four hours” marathon. Simply, yet very delicious.
