Read the The Celiac Scene’s Roving Reporter’s Review:
“These cheese buns restored my faith in gluten-free humanity. A chewy and delicious four-cheese indulgence, they are everything the package touts them to be and more. The instructions are simple and easy to follow, and a baking time of only 20 minutes perfectly suits my impatient appetite. Plus, you can feel good about eating them because they are made in Canada, and without GMOs, additives, or preservatives. Gramma Dee’s Cheese Bread is available in three different but equally awesome flavours: traditional, garlic, and bacon (pig free, of course). I will definitely be breaking these winners out the next time I host – maybe I’ll even try the mini-sandwiches idea the package suggests, if I can refrain from eating them all first! “
