The other day I was hit with an inspired thought. I had made gluten-free oat pancakes for breakfast, in which I mix in cinnamon and vanilla as I use no sweetener, and topped them with fresh, warmed organic strawberries. Later as I was writing I got a craving for a sandwich. Cravings for foods I haven't eaten in years will randomly hit and I'll take a few moments longing for gooey mac n' cheese or tiramisu and then I'll move on. However, this time I wanted to see what I could do. So I made myself a little jelly sandwich with a leftover pancake which led me to my plans for dinner last night.
As many times as I've attempted a good, gluten-free bread that doesn't use yeast, and all the very pricey ones I've bought, NOTHING is as soft as that little oat pancake. I decided to whip up a batch, this time omitting the cinnamon and vanilla to give it a very neutral flavor. I piled on crispy bacon, turkey, lettuce and fresh tomato and had a very satisfying little sandwich. For the recipe you can click here to view the pancakes, just omit the sweet/savory ingredients.
One of the projects I was working on while I was creating this awesome new little burger/pancake/sandwich concoction was seeking out a celiac/gluten-free speaker for the Prepper Fest AZ Expo taking place out here in Phoenix on March 21st-23rd. I will be a blogger at the event and am so honored and excited! Especially since Mr. Charming and I just recently started putting our family preparedness kit together. For all the details, check out the flyer below. I will be posting info from the event as well as reviewing the preparedness vendors and the gluten-free vendors, throughout the weekend! Hope to see you there!
