4 – Ingredient Gluten-Free Cheese Buns – who said gluten-free baking has to be complicated? These buns have a sourdough texture on the inside and are slightly crusty on the outside. They are amazingly easy to make and are a special addition to breakfast, brunch or with warming soups and stews. In the summer I lightly grill them on the barbecue and serve them with sliders. These buns also toast well.

Gluten-free buns with only four ingredients, how is that possible?

To make these buns you will need a gluten-free baking flour. I used Bob’s Red Mill baking flour and the flour worked beautifully. Then, you will need a thick plain Greek yogurt, cheddar cheese and baking soda. That’s it, except for the salt. I did not include salt in my total list of ingredients because everyone has salt at home. To make the gluten-free cheese buns is super easy. Mix the flour, baking soda and cheese, then add the yogurt. Mix until a dough forms and using a large spoon or an ice cream scoop, spoon out the dough on to a baking sheet. I sprinkled the buns with sesame seeds, mostly because I have a full bag of them, and they add a little more flavour. But the sesame seeds are optional. I hope you like them as much as my family does. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup gluten-free baking flour (must be baking flour and not all-purpose flour)
  • 1 tsp. Baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. Pure sea salt
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup plain full-fat thick Greek yogurt
  • Optional topping: 1 tablespoon of sesame seeds
