My daughter recently had a bridal shower and the theme was breakfast. We had Quiche (I wish I took photos of my Quiche as it turned out great!) and breads. Since my daughter also has Celiac Disease I wanted this to be the best time ever so went on the search for different types of bread. On my adventure I found Ener-G Pretzel Bread. I also found some against the grain bread which I will blog on later.
This bread reminded me a little of sourdough. I wasn’t a big sourdough fan prior to being gluten-free but this was a great treat reminding me of such. I didn’t find this bread to taste anything like pretzels which I was really hoping it would!!! Had it, I would be buying it all the time as I love and miss soft pretzels. Even though it wasn’t the taste I was hoping for, it was a good bread.
I got busy putting it to the test. I thought what goes great with pretzels? First I just buttered it which basically tasted like a buttered sourdough, then I got created and thought I love pretzels and cheese so had a grilled cheese sandwich; this definitely took the bread up a notch but I think the best use of it was today with a melted ham and cheese sandwich with mustard.
I really enjoyed the bread, not something I would buy every week or every month but for a change of pace treat it was a wonderful bread. If I find something I make that would pair well with sourdough I will definitely go back and buy this.
