Any GF bread product can be frozen as individual slices. Put something between the slices or wrap them individually so you can take out what you want without taking a jack hammer to the loaf.... Then just toast them, I use a toaster oven but you can get sleeves for a regular toaster if you think it may get a little crumbly. I’ve never had trouble with commercial breads, though.

I need to get a doctor's note and then I think that I can use my HSA for gluten free costs. For the most part I kept them pretty low by just changing food choices rather than trying to find replacements, so we have rice and potatoes and recently lots of corn instead of pasta, or brown rice pasta from Trader Joes (I think that it is less than $2 a bag and tasty).

Thanks for the recommendation. Know what you mean about bread - it is my most craved food, too, and the generally available off-the-shelf breads just don't cut it for me - not even the ones found in the freezer case. I've been making Bob's Red Mill Wonderful Homemade Bread mix, but it is expensive and the two of us can't eat a loaf before it goes bad - it is best the first 2 days anyway, and THAT is expensive.

I've heard we can deduct the cost of GF foods from Fed taxes (with diagnosis and documentation) if you itemize. We don't, so I don't keep up with it.

So, this is not a recipe, just a recommendation. As a former lover of French bread I have been missing the chewy white bread since switching over to being gluten free. To be honest is has been my biggest craving. A small dedicated gluten free company makes a french white bread that I can buy locally as a frozen loaf or online as a mix. The crust isn't perfect but the bread has that chewy texture that I haven't found in other gluten free breads. The company is Gluten Free You and Me, you can do a google search for them they are located in Dublin OH. It isn't cheap but a lot of gluten free things aren't so once in a while I plan on splurging.
