As a Celiac, I spent many years missing a good crusty bread until Schaar came out with their amazing Baguette!  You have to bake it for a few minutes to get the crust crispy but it’s worth the extra time. One of my goals is to create my own Gluten Free Baguette recipe, but Schaar has produced a great product and it’s far easier than baking it!  You can use any type of crusty bread available to you in your local stores.

Gluten free bread can be a little tough to cut longer oblong slices because the bread can fall apart a bit, but I try anyway!  This is really such a simple recipe that you can either top with a variety of foods and serve at a party, or with a warm bowl of soup (See.  I remove the garlic after I infuse the oil, but if you prefer to keep the garlic on that is delicious as well!   Just brush your teeth a but longer :). Enjoy!
