Udi’s Gluten Free Bagels & A Fun Breakfast Treat for GF Kids

A few weeks ago, while on one of my rare grocery adventures (I kid you not, I get lost in label land)! Anyhoo, after a few hours of doing the “Gluten-Free Nancy Drew” thing, I remembered that I needed to pick up some more bread. When I approached the freezer case to get my beloved Udi’s GF Bread, I just about fainted. There they were. The ever elusive, softly whispered, government conspiracy cover-up… UDI’S BAGELS!!

I was so excited, I bought 5 packages!

As soon as I got home, I had to have one, with cream cheese!

The first thing I noticed as I pulled a bagel out of the bag… these are REALLY BIG bagels! They are so big, that I could only eat 1/4 of it! The other thing I noticed is that they do not really taste like the gluten bagels I remember. They are good mind you, but they are not the boiled bagels that I think of; with the crunchy crust and chewy inside. To me, they are the same as Udi’s great gluten-free bread, only in the shape of a bagel (which is a big plus, especially for a 6 year old)! Sam loves the bagels, because they make him feel “normal.” Know what I think these are? A GREAT gluten-free hamburger bun, only with a hole in the middle! Just place a piece of lettuce at the top to keep the condiments contained and wa-la!

Told you they were big! Sam will not eat lettuce on his burger, but it wasn't too messy!

I got this idea from Disney’s Family Fun Magazine, UFO Breakfast Treats!

That's my boy, thinking "outside the box!"

Why can't he be this "neat" with chocolate??

Neither one of my boy’s will eat a hard boiled egg (yet they love egg salad??).

I hope you have a happy Easter or I hope you’ve had a good Passover!

  1. Love that pic of your son eating that worlds biggest bagel ~ lol. That is a very large bagel indeed. Is Udi’s bagels a whole foods store product?

  2. Lisa,

    The bagels are HUGE! You definitely get your money’s worth, LOL! A 4-pack of Udi’s bagels cost about $5.00.

    Udi’s is not a Whole Foods store product, they are a bakery out of Denver. My local Whole Foods carries it, as well as a few other stores in the Albuquerque area, like Vitamin Cottage and R. Downs.

    There is not a better GF bread out there, and I have not been able to make any that comes even close to the moist, fluffy, bendable, shelf stable, “real” bread, that Udi’s has mastered. I cried, laughed and danced a jig the first time I had it. Ahhh yes, Udi’s GF bread “had me at hello!”

    My Whole Foods will occasionally put the bread on sale for about $3.00/loaf so I stock up! Like 30 loaves at a time. 😀 This is when I am thankful for my Deep Freezers!!

  3. OMG – I can’t wait to try these GF bagels! And I really like your hamburger bun idea. They actually look better than most prepared GF hamburger buns I have seen on thew market. Thanks as always for the info and ideas!

  4. You do such a nice job Heidi! Thanks for being you and sharing your life with us!

  5. […] for purchase online! I have not had the pleasure of trying them yet, but you can read a review here. Heidi lives close to a store that carries them! Lucky girl! The bagels are $6 for a 4 pack or […]
