Chicken Pesto Sandwich 4Mama’s Sun-Dried Tomato Basil Bread ~ Gluten/Dairy/Egg Free
 
& Mama’s Grilled Chicken and Pesto Sandwich
 
 
It’s Dairy Free and Egg Free week at Gluten Free Mama, so we decided it would be fitting to create a Dairy/Egg/Gluten Free recipe for you.  In fact, you get two in one today!  Summer is on my mind, and it makes me think of summer friendly recipes.  I created this delicious Sun-Dried Tomato Basil Bread and yes, it’s Egg and Dairy Free!  I like to think outside the box.  I am not a big fan of baking my breads in the traditional 4×8 bread pan, because  I don’t feel that the breads hold their rise like they should in those pans and so when you cut slices you have these dinky 2×3 inch slices, and that is not a sandwich!  I made this bread in an Angel Food Cake Pan, giving it a “Ring Shape”.  Then after the bread cooled, I sliced the bread in half, making two rings, and made a delicious Grilled Chicken Pesto Sandwich out of it. It not only looks amazingly delicious, it tastes amazing too!  My family gave it a 10 and I hope your family does too!  Now of course, you can make any kind of sandwich you like, and you can make any of your favorite bread recipes using the Angel Food Cake Pan, making the ring shape.  So have fun with it!  Happy Summer, and enjoy baking gluten free!
