Rudi’s Organic Bakery {Review/Giveaway}

By Wednesday, August 3, 2011 29 , , , Permalink 0


My mother in law, who, I am sure you all know by now, has Celiac Disease and there have been times where we sort of joke about it…at my expense, though! I love bread so much I seriously doubt I could ever give it up, even if I had to go gluten free…

You know when you are pregnant and you start noticing lots of pregnant women around you? Well, this is what has been happening to us now, but we are on the gluten-free bandwagon! This is how we found out about Rudi’s.


At Rudi’s, we’ve been making the lives of families healthier & happier simply by baking their small batch breads a brighter way for thirty four years. Our organic breads bring health, optimism, and a little fun not only to our families, but to families everywhere just by baking on the bright side.


Kathryn, from Rudi’s, sent us 3 of their amazing products to try:


{Multigrain Hamburger Buns}


Rudi’s burger buns look hard as a brick at first glance. I popped one in the oven for 15-30 seconds and I was surprised to its softness. These buns have a slight hint of honey and molasses which makes them that much yummier! I tried them with leftover chicken taco meat and it was delicious! And did not get soggy at all!

Ingredients: Water, potato extract, rice starch, canola oil, rice flour, sorghum flour, sugar, egg whites, honey, inulin, yeast, salt, xanthan gum, flaxseed, millet, sunflower seeds, cornmeal, molasses. Gluten-free.


{Multigrain Bread}


I mad a huge mistake with this bread. As soon as it got the in the mail I, in a hungry state of mind, decided to east a slice in the spot! It was grainy and not so good, I could barely swallow the bread! But I then decided to put it in the toaster and this bread is heaven! And it gets even better if you add Nutella! 😀 Oh, I wish I still have bread…I could seriously live off it! 😀

Ingredients: Water, potato extract, rice starch, rice flour, sorghum flour, organic high oleic sunflower/safflower oil, organic evaporated cane juice, organic honey, egg whites, organic inulin, yeast, sea salt, xanthan gum, organic cornmeal, organic sunflower seeds, organic millet, organic flaxseed, organic molasses. Gluten-free.


{Pizza Crust}


Since it was overcast for quite some time in our neck of the woods, I decided to make the boys a pizza using Rudi’s pizza crust. I added pizza sauce, cheddar cheese, and pepperoni. Man was it good, you would even know it is gluten-free!

J. even ate a slice and he didn’t use to eat pizza at all before then!! Rudi’s pizza crust was J. very first slice of pizza. Ate. It. All!

A week later I was at my mother in law’s and realized that Rudi’s is the only brand she uses for pizza crust! She knows her gluten-free baked goods!

Ingredients: Water, rice flour, corn starch, tapioca dextrin, eggs, sugar, salt, xanthan gum, baking powder, guar gum, canola oil, rice extract. Contains: Eggs Gluten-Free.

    I love pizza topped with every single extra vegetable in the house that is about to go bad or not get used. It’s especially good with onions, zucchini, and tomatos. YUM!!

    I am a purist when it comes to pizza. I usually like just a plain 3 cheese or a cheese with onions. While in Italy with my husband a couple years ago though, I ordered a strange pizza due to not knowing the language well. It was actually awesome and I have been craving it ever since. It was a white sauce pizza with smoked tuna on top and of all things, an egg! Yep, they cracked an egg on top and baked it like that!
    It was awesome!
