Gluten-Free Garlic Cheese French Bread Bites
A simple gluten-free baguette, a little garlic salt and some cheese are so easy to transform into an ever-popular snack – I could make these Gluten-Free Garlic Cheese French Bread Bites every few days in my house. They’re more popular than popcorn!
All I need to do is slice a simple loaf of gluten-free French bread – the baguette is easiest, since it’s finger food-size, but any French bread will do. Then spread with a little cheese and some other toppings, put in the oven for a few minutes and it somehow transforms itself into a gluten-free appetizer that is sure to please the whole family!
These make great after-school snacks for kids, popular appetizers for get-togethers or football parties and I’ve also found them to be quick fillers to serve to my husband, Al, when dinner is late.
I hope you like them, too!
They are this simple to make:
Slice the bread:
Arrange on baking sheet.
Toast on both sides.
Spread with toppings.
Melt the cheese.
Al insisted on helping serve them.
- 1 Baguette, or your favorite French Bread (day-old is best)
- Garlic Salt to taste
- 2 Cups Cheddar Cheese, Shredded, or more
- Tomato, Chopped, to taste
- Olives, Sliced, to taste
Preheat oven to 425°F.
Slice the bread thinly cross-wise and spread them on a baking sheet, not touching.
Bake for about 5 minutes or until starting to turn golden. Turn over and bake a few more minutes so that both sides are toasted.
Sprinkle with shredded cheese and garlic salt. Arrange tomato and olives evenly.
Return to oven for a few minutes, just until cheese is melted.
This gluten-free recipe is designed for those with gluten intolerance, gluten sensitivity, or celiac (coeliac) disease, but I’ve found that people who have no food allergies like it, too. It’s one of my frugal gluten-free recipes that is wheat-free, barley-free and rye-free, as well as nut-free. It is a wheat-free recipe suitable for a wheat-free diet and it's easily ready in less time than a 30 minute meal.
