Gluten free bagel, waffle and tortilla reviews

Now that I'm settling in to my new life, I'm reviewing a few new-to-me foods. Check out the gluten free bagel, but skip the tortillas and waffles.Hello, world! It’s been a while. I’m settling in to my new job, apartment and city. I’ve been buying more gluten free foods lately, so I thought I’d review a few of my recent discoveries.

Kashi Gluten Free Cinnamon Waffles

The directions say to toast them directly from frozen. They either come out mushy, or worse, they don’t come out of the toaster at all. The last one I made broke and I had to take the bottom out of the toaster to get the stinking thing out of there. You can blame my toaster, but these are a fail. Will not buy again.

Trader Joe’s Brown Rice Tortillas

Now that I'm settling in to my new life, I'm reviewing a few new-to-me foods. Check out the gluten free bagel, but skip the tortillas and waffles.

This burrito had a blowout in the microwave.

I prefer to make my own flour tortillas, but I’d never tried these and at $2.99, I thought it was worth a shot. They don’t have much flavor and they flake/break when you try to roll them. The burritos had to be eaten with a fork due to structural failure, but the quesadilla worked out pretty well. These will do if you don’t have the time or energy to make your own, but they are not great.

O’Doughs Gluten Free Bagel

I found these in the frozen section, and I just thaw them for thirty seconds in the microwave when I want to toast one. My only gripe is that these are thinner than a “normal” bagel, so if you slice it in half, it’s real skinny. Again, since my toaster eats skinny/flimsy things, I’ve found it better to just toast the whole bagel, which fits nicely in one side. These are pretty darn tasty. It’s the best gluten free bagel I’ve found outside of Udi’s, which I can’t eat because Udi’s products wreck my stomach.

Bonus: Trader Joe’s Everything but the Bagel seasoning

Now that I'm settling in to my new life, I'm reviewing a few new-to-me foods. Check out the gluten free bagel, but skip the tortillas and waffles.

This bagel was everything.

Trader Joe’s sells everything bagel seasoning. I just made my O’Doughs bagel, flipped it upside down, put cream cheese all over the bottom, and sprinkled this seasoning across the cream cheese. Very near the flavor of an everything bagel from Einstein, which was one of my favorite things ever back when I could eat gluten. For $1.99, this was such a good find.

Have you recently discovered any delicious gluten free treats? I’m excited to see that Schar is becoming really easy to find in the US now. Simple Mills seems to be expanding too; I’ve seen crackers from them recently, which is a move away from the boxed bread mixes I knew them for. Tell me what you’re eating in the comments!
