You may not consider white bread to be a powerhouse recipe base, but when you are working with whole grain white bread that happens to be jam-packed with nutrients (and also gluten free!), that’s a whole other story.
Our traditional gluten-free Whole Grain White Bread is soft and perfect for sandwiches without toasting. It’s such a popular choice, we rolled out a Large Slice White Bread version. What we love about this family staple is that it’s strong enough to stand up to chunky peanut butter sandwiches and great for any sandwich you can think of. It is whole grain and an excellent source of fiber. While gluten-free sandwiches are an obvious recipe choice, our talented recipe developers have also whipped up some pretty impressive ideas beyond two pieces of bread and toppings. We think you’ll be impressed and inspired by these recipe ideas using gluten-free white bread!

Smash it into shape (using a large cup) to seal the edges, toss in the freezer and pull them out one at a time for a super-quick weekday lunch…. because we can all use every extra minute we can, right?
- 2 slices Three Bakers Gluten Free Large Slice White Bread
- 1 Tablespoon gluten-free peanut butter or sunbutter (or other favorite butter)
- 2 teaspoons gluten-free jelly
Spread peanut butter in the center of both side of the bread.
Spread jelly on top of the peanut butter.
Place sandwich sides together.
Using a sandwich press or a large-mouthed cup, press into the sandwich, removing the edges and sealing the sides.
Freeze until ready to eat.

Speaking of PBJ’s … why not up your game with a variety of nut butter flavors and jelly flavors?

11. Eggnog French Toast by Angela Litzinger
- 1 1/2 cups eggnog or dairy free coconut milk based eggnog
- 6 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 loaf Three Bakers Whole Grain White Bread
Whisk together eggnog, eggs, nutmeg and cinnamon. Pour into a shallow dish large enough to hold bread slices. (I use a dish that holds 3 slices of bread at a time as that is how many pieces of French toast my skillet can cook at the same time.)
Place bread in a single layer into the egg mixture. Allow to soak mixture for one minute. Flip bread and allow to soak for one minute longer. Place soaked bread into a preheated skillet that has a tablespoon of butter or coconut oil melted in it.
Cook French toast until golden brown. Using a spatula, flip the French toast over and cook the other side until golden. Set French toast aside on a warmed platter. Continue with remaining bread until all the French toast is cooked.
Serve Eggnog French Toast with warm Pear, Cranberry & Maple Topping.
Pear, Cranberry & Maple Topping
In this recipe, you will cook the pears for the topping lightly, remove from the pan and then add them back at the end. This helps the delicate pears retain their shape and not break down.
Makes about 3 cups
- 1 cup apple cider
- 6 tablespoons maple syrup, divided
- 2 tablespoons butter or 1 1/2 tablespoons coconut oil
- 2 bartlett pears, peeled, cored, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
- 1 1/2 cups cranberries (fresh or frozen)
Whisk apple cider and 3 tablespoons of maple syrup together in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Boil, whisking often until reduced by about half. It should take about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
Melt butter or coconut oil in a medium-sized saucepan over medium heat. Add pear, sautéing for two minutes. With a slotted spoon, spoon pear into a bowl, leaving pear juices and butter in pan. Set pears aside.
Add cranberries to pear juice in saucepan with remaining 3 tablespoons of maple syrup and reduced cider mixture. Cook over medium heat, stirring often until cranberries have popped and broken down, about 6-8 minutes more. Stir in pears. Cook for one to 2 minutes until pears are heated through.
