My family has become accustomed to living the gluten-free lifestyle ever since my brother was diagnosed with Celiac Disease a year ago. This includes our family’s favorite lasagna recipe, now using gluten-free pasta! When it comes to Birthdays in the Bond house, this is pretty much the go-to meal, so for Mom’s Birthday this year I decided to attempt a new addition to the meal, Gluten Free Italian Garlic Rolls.
The rolls did not expand like traditional rolls because of the use of gluten-free flour, but the flavor was great! I would highly recommend these as a gluten-free alternative to traditional garlic bread!
- 1 3/4 cups warm water
- 1 (.25 oz) package yeast
- 3 cups gluten-free flour blend
- 1 tbsp salt
- 2 eggs (beaten)
- 3 tbsp butter (softened)
- 3 cloves garlic (crushed)
- 1 tbsp fresh basil (chopped)
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- 1 tsp dried parsley
- 1 tsp garlic salt
Start by combining the water and yeast.
Allow to sit for 5-10 minutes or until the mixture begins to bubble.
In the meantime mix together the garlic, basil, oregano, parsley and garlic salt in a small bowl.
Next, mix the flour and salt into the yeast mixture, then add the eggs and butter until a solid ball forms.
Place in a bowl covered in olive oil cooking spray, then cover with plastic wrap. Allow to rise for 45 minutes.
After the dough has almost doubled in size, punch down and add in the garlic herb mixture.
Next, form the dough into 6-8 balls and place in a cast iron skillet. (If you do not have a cast iron skillet, you can place the rolls in a pan or on a baking sheet.)
Bake at 375° for 30-35 minutes.
Don’t be scared by the not-so-perfect-looking-texture, that’s just the way gluten-free flour looks in the form of amazing garlic herb rolls 😉
The perfect side dish for any gluten-free Italian meal!
