Healthy Gluten Free Bread For Grilled Cheese
Franz Bakery makes an incredible gluten free seven-grain bread that has become one of our favorites! It is full of healthy grains like brown rice, millet, teff, quinoa, amaranth, and sorghum.
Even better? It is refined sugar-free!! Just check out the seeds on the crust of the bread!! This bread is the perfect vessel for my “favorite foods” grilled cheese sandwich recipe!!
Shelf Stable Packaging
Franz recently updated their gluten free packaging. You will love the special way they package their bread. The loaf is sealed in special shelf-stable packaging, so you can buy this bread and store it in the pantry until you are ready to use it in recipes like this grilled brie sandwich!
And if you love bagels, Franz Gluten Free Bakery makes the best gluten free bagels anywhere!! They are chewy like real bagels!
Are you ready to see how easy this brie apple grilled cheese sandwich is to make?
The first step is to take Franz Gluten Free Seven Grain Bread and butter one side of 6 pieces of bread. You can use butter or ghee for this.
Cook your favorite bacon and set aside on a paper towel to remove the extra grease.
Let’s make homemade cinnamon apples!
Slice your favorite type of apple. I used a combination of Granny Smith Apples and Fuji.
Add 1 tablespoon butter to a pan over medium-low heat. Add 1 1/2 cups sliced apple (about 2 large apples) and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Saute until the apples are soft.
Heat a pan on medium-low heat. Add the Franz gluten free bread butter side down. Add a layer of brie cheese.
Add a bacon layer, then a cinnamon apple layer. Cover with another piece of gluten free bread, butter side up so that when you flip it over, the buttery side will be against the pan.
Serve with your favorite chips!!
