Popular Gluten-Free Hamburger and Hot Dog Buns

When you start following the gluten-free diet, it's frequently tough to find commercial gluten-free bread products you enjoy. The same goes for hamburger and hot dog buns. It's no longer easy to simply pick up a package of buns at the store for an impromptu cookout — instead, you need to plan ahead.

Fortunately, planning ahead is getting easier, and the products are improving rather dramatically. A few years ago, there were only one or two commercial gluten-free hamburger and hot dog buns on the market. Now, there are more than a dozen by eight different manufacturers.

Of course, most stores (even the largest supermarkets) aren't going to stock a huge selection of these. But once you find a favorite (it takes trial-and-error), you can order online in bulk and store them in the freezer.

Of course, now that you've got the buns, you'll need safe hamburgers and hot dogs to go in them. 

Enjoy that cookout!
