Gluten Free Hamburger "Buns" for Burgers
Cutting out burger shapes from gluten free toast is often easier than finding gluten free hamburger buns. I love the way the hamburger on toast rounds looks on the plate. Usually I have gluten free bread around, but it is harder to find gluten free hamburger buns. When I asked my son if he wanted lettuce on his burger, he said "Is it shredded?" So now I am serving shredded lettuce with everything.
Making the toast rounds is really simple if you have a round biscuit cutter. I bought a set of biscuit cutters from William Sonoma but they sell a set of stainless steel round cookie cutters on TheCookPro.com that also work well. If you don't have round cutters, you can invert a small bowl over the toast and use a sharp knife to follow the edge of the bowl. It will take a little longer without round cutters, but it will still work. And for me it is far easier than finding gluten free hamburger buns.
If anyone has any suggestions for tasty gluten free hamburger and hotdog buns, I would love if they left a comment.
