Savory breakfast foods tend to have more flavor than sweet foods. For example, think of a Gluten Free Savory Dutch Baby or a Gluten-Free Potato Crusted Quiche.

This gluten free savory breakfast bread is made with quickbread dough. This means you don’t need a mixer, blender or food processor, making this easy clean up bread recipe.

How to store gluten free breakfast bread?

First, store your bread in a cool, dry place. The bread will become stale quickly if it’s too warm. A closed container will prevent the bread from drying out and will keep the bread fresh tasting for up to two days.

If you need to store this gluten free savory breakfast bread longer than two days, store it in the refrigerator for up to five days. 

Or, you can freeze it for up to three months. Just be sure to wrap it tightly in freezer-safe packaging. When you’re ready to eat it, thaw the bread overnight in the refrigerator before slicing and serving.

To add freshness to a slice of bread, place it in the toaster for 1 minute. This is not to toast it but to give it that fresh-tasting flavor it had the day it was baked. Or in the microwave for 30 seconds.

The takeaways

When it comes to gluten free savory breakfast bread, there are a few key takeaways to keep in mind. First and foremost, make sure to use a gluten free flour blend as your base. 

Measure the flour correctly. This means, fill your measuring cup using a spoon, then level it off with a knife. If you dip the measuring cup into the flour, you will have too much flour and the bread will be dense and dry.

Secondly, don’t be afraid to experiment with different flavorings and mix-ins. From herbs and spices to vegetables, cheese, and proteins, the possibilities are endless to make your perfect gluten free savory breakfast loaf. 

You can make the bread in advance. Having a hearty, nutritious slice of bread on hand when needed stops you from reaching for something processed or fried and ladened with salt and unhealthy fats.

And lastly, remember to have fun in the kitchen! Baking should be enjoyable, so don’t stress if things turn out differently. The beauty of baking is that even imperfections can often taste good.

I hope you try this gluten-free savory bread because it is nutritious and tasty, and the recipe is easy to make. Plus, all you need is one slice to provide you with lasting energy.
