Gluten Free Cornbread Sandwiches

Preparation Time: 10 minutesCooking Time: 45 minutes

This is a fun recipe when you want something a little different.

This is essentially taking cornbread, baking it in a loaf pan, and slicing it as bread to use. It is fun and a little unusual to break up the monotony of a lunch box routine.

You can always use a gluten free cornbread mix from a box and prepare it in the same manner after it is baked. This could also be done as cornbread muffin sandwiches.

The cornbread will appear to be all the way cooked about 10-15 minutes before it is actually done.

Note in the above picture that it is of the cornbread before it is done cooking. It needed another 15 minutes after this picture was taken before it was done. Use the toothpick method to check when it is done. (Insert a toothpick and if it comes out without batter or raw cornbread it is done.)

After it is fully cooked, allow it to sit and cool down before cutting. I am rarely this patient, but can easily recommend it for this recipe. You will end up with a crumbly mess if you cut it when hot. When it cools down slightly it will maintain its structure much easier.

Then assemble sandwiches and include any sides that you wish!

My passion is supporting those who need to be gluten free. After my family had to transition to eating gluten free I realized how difficult it is. It is more than finding a recipe. It is about how to navigate social situations, deal with isolation, and other things that come along with it. I live in Oregon with my family, cats, and chickens.
