Does this look good?
This past weekend we had a birthday party for my girls which included dinner for kids and adults, and of course cake, which I already wrote about in my post Happy Birthday to my girls. Now I want to write about our dinner menu which was my favorite part of the evening. It had to be gluten-free of course, for me, my husband, my kids and 2 of the adult guests. And I wanted it be something that a gluten-free person doesn’t get very often (or ever).
So I decided on hamburgers. Not just any hamburgers. Hamburgers with all the fixins — cheese, onions sauteed for hours, fresh tomatoes from my parents’ garden, perfectly ripe avocado — plus… a gluten-free BUN. A good bun. A homemade bun. One that brings back the memories of a real hamburger, not one encased by lettuce leaves (a la In-N-Out burger) or left naked and eaten with a fork. I wanted to sink my teeth into a big juicy burger and have saucy condiments drip down just like in the commercials.
I set out to make the buns using a bread mix and foil molds. It worked. When it was time to serve our hamburger feast, one of the guests said, “Nice buns.” Why, thank you. “Nice buns!” said another guest, not hearing the first. Thank you again. That compliment/joke just doesn’t get old! I really did have some nice looking buns if I do say so myself.
Here’s how I did it, step by step:
And the picture at the top shows my cheeseburger with everything on it. It did bring back memories, and it did drip!
