Sandwich Buns

Oh. My. Goodness. Look at what I made! Cheesy sandwich buns. SO good.

See that nook of cheesy goodness on the right hand side? I could live in there and be happy. Just sayin'
Anyone who is gluten free can tell you, good quality bread is hard to come by.  I've been missing sandwiches with meat and veggies nestled between two happy slices of bread.

I scour the web every day looking for yummy recipes to feed my family. One day I found a gluten free bun made with 4 ingredients. Four.

Once again, I questioned every single cooking skill I possess. I mixed the ingredients up. Divided it into 8 chunks. And threw it in the oven. (I don't even pretend to understand how gluten free baking works, but by golly it does!)

Can I just say that these things smell fan-freaking-tastic. And the taste? Out of this world. They are soft, tender, and packed with flavor.

I will definitely always keep some of these on hand for meat sandwiches, hamburger buns, and whatever else my little heart desires!I can't wait to try new flavors with this basic recipe.

Here's to you and your culinary adventures, friends. Cheers!

Brazilian Cheese Buns
From Lynn's Kitchen Adventures

1 cup tapioca flour
1 tsp baking powder
2 cups shredded cheddar or other hard cheese of your choice (I imagine pepper jack would be great)
2 eggs, beaten

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Whisk together the tapioca flour and baking powder.

Stir in cheese and eggs.

Mix together and knead the until a dough forms. (This is a wet, sticky dough. It will not be the same as a regular bread dough.)

Divide into 8 pieces.

Bake for 13-15 minutes or until done, but not browned. You want these to be soft and tender.
