A Bountiful Bread Basket, Part 2: Top 40 Gluten-Free Bread Recipes—Basic Rolls and Biscuits

If you’ve been anxiously awaiting the next installment of The Bountiful Bread Basket series—the series that features the best gluten-free bread recipes on the web—here it is! This post is focused on the best “basic” gluten-free roll and biscuit recipes. Another upcoming post will focus on flavored rolls and biscuits (garlic, cheese, lemon, etc.). Obviously, I found many great recipes in this category!

I believe there are more roll and biscuit recipes than loaf bread recipes (featured in Part 1 of this series) because most of us can get our “bread fix” with rolls and biscuits and they’re usually easier and faster to get on the table. That’s important to all of us when preparing a meal, especially after long school or work days. And, for some of us, biscuits and rolls are even more appealing than loaves of bread. After all, I call my popovers “better than sliced bread,” and I firmly believe that. Looking at all the other delicious contributions here, I suspect they merit that same praise!

For this roundup, I have not only identified how “free” each of these recipes is, but I have also separated them into two groups—gluten free recipes that contain grains and gluten-free recipes that are also grain free. Hopefully, categorizing them this way will allow you all to immediately find the recipes they need.

      Hi Amy–Welcome! :-) I’m not a biscuits and gravy gal but, thankfully for you, others are. ;-) Here’s a recipe for Sausage Gravy and Biscuits from Linda, The Gluten-Free Homemaker. If this one doesn’t meet your criteria, Google will reveal more gf options.

      Enjoy all!

    I think I should be following a glutinous free diet. I am going to try some of these recipes

    • Shirley on September 18th, 2013 11:13 am

      Hi Sandra–Welcome to gfe! :-) Start with some easy ones here (like the popovers) and I’ve sure you’ll have success and enjoy them. As far as being a newbie, please check out my Getting Started Tip Sheets here. They include one on reasons to get tested. Getting tested before going gluten free is the ideal situation.

      Good luck on all!
      Shirley

    Shirley am I in heaven? This is a great roundup! What a good idea, and what a good place to send my readers :)

    • Shirley on September 18th, 2013 3:14 pm

      Hi Maggie–Well, you are an angel! ;-)Thanks so much, dear! I both appreciate and love that folks are sharing this valuable resource. SO many talented bloggers contributed to it! :-)

    Thanks, Shirley! I made some biscuits last night, a little flat, but tasty. I’m going to give a few of these a try. Practice makes perfect. :)

    • Shirley on September 18th, 2013 3:15 pm

      Hi Jill–It’s great to hear from you! It’s been a while. ;-) Yay on making gluten-free biscuits! Keep practicing for sure. :-) Hope you find some recipes here that you love!

    Wow! What a feast for the eyes. Thank you so much Shirley for this wonderful list of goodies. As a mom of a family with multiple allergies I can’t thank you enough as we’ll as all those talented cooks. Blessings to all of you.

      Hi Ellie–It looks like it’s your first time commenting here … welcome to gfe! :-) I’m so glad you’re finding this post so enjoyable and so helpful, too. I agree that I have pulled some great recipes from some very talented cooks! I simply love the creative talent within the gluten-free community. :-)

      Thanks for taking the time to comment!

    Another fantastic round-up! I have a favorite biscuit recipe I always use but after seeing this I think I might need to venture out! Thanks for all of your hard work :)

    Hugs,
    Cassidy

    You should not look at this post when your hungry! I’m drooling! LOL! My husband has really wanted me to try a roll recipe, but I’m scared. I will have to give a couple of these recipes a try!

    • Shirley on September 22nd, 2013 12:10 am

      Amber–You should not be scared at all! So many of these are super easy. Make my popovers to start. They’re a cinch and will make you look like a kitchen goddess! ;-) But there are plenty here for you to gain your roll and biscuit confidence! :-)

      Shirley

  17. Amber on September 23rd, 2013 1:10 am

    Wow and wow, Shirley. I’m am really loving your round-up posts. This is quite an impressive collection indeed!!!! Thank you for all your hard work. I think you have us ALL covered for our Holiday meals in the bread department. I’ve made Cassidy’s grain free rolls many times and love them. They taste like actual buttermilk biscuits. And I’ve used Bob’s almond flour and they turned out great. Thanks for this awesome showcase.

    Hugs,
    –Amber

    • Shirley on September 24th, 2013 9:25 pm

      Thanks so much, Amber! :-) The roundup posts always demonstrate just how much talent there is in our blogging community, don’t you think? Thanks for adding the feedback on Cassidy’s rolls, too. Those were actually the last recipe I added because I’d missed them on my first pass and after she mentioned them to me, I had to check them out and add them. It was clear from the photo alone that they were worthy of the Top 40! ;-)

      xo,
      Shirley

  18. JOANNE VACALEBRE on September 24th, 2013 8:28 pm

    Well, I have to be honest with you. It is very hard for me to live without bread but I am trying very hard. Now, you have opened the clouds and the sun is shining through!! Hallelujah and thank you very much.

    • Shirley on September 24th, 2013 9:29 pm

      Hi Joanne–Welcome to gfe! :-) I think as long as we eat bread—even gluten-free bread—we want it. And with all these recipes, there’s no reason not to have it! ;-) Be sure to check out Part 1 of the series, which features loaf recipes, too. Thanks so much for taking the time to comment, dear. Your comment made me smile big. I do love getting that reaction from folks when they find just what they are looking for here! :-)

      • JOANNE VACALEBRE on September 24th, 2013 9:47 pm

        You are very welcome and I am looking forward to following your website.

  19. Molly (Sprue Story) on September 26th, 2013 7:45 am

    Here’s seconding everyone’s thanks for this roundup! I think one thing that’s so great about it is that biscuits and rolls are among those foods that can be made well in all different ways, but that most of us have a favorite kind of. (Like brownies.) Seeing them all together this way is helpful for people hoping to achieve the look and texture that they remember from their old favorite biscuits at their family dinner table. Of course, for taste, the only real way to be sure is to make them all and compare…that doesn’t sound too bad.

    • Shirley on September 26th, 2013 9:38 pm

      Hi Molly–You are welcome! I always appreciate your lovely feedback! :-) And that’s very true on us all having our favorites and it’s fun to find ones that are great fits for each of us. Taste testing is not a bad thing at all. ;-)

      I’m looking forward to sharing the rest of the series with you all!

    I love your round up posts! This lot should last me at least a week…

    I love the variety! Such a great round up of some incredibly talented people! Thank you for sharing.

    • Shirley on November 26th, 2013 10:34 pm

      Thanks, Sarena! I’m always blown away at the variety of the recipes and the talent of the bloggers whenever I do a roundup. I look forward to sharing some of your terrific recipes in this Bountiful Bread recipe in the near future, my dear. :-)

  25. michelle on April 10th, 2014 9:08 pm

    Love this list! Thank you so much! I wanted to let you know it seems a few of the links are broken and one led to a very disturbing website (obviously not intentional). Wanted to let you know so maybe other people won’t have to be surprised/disturbed. Thanks so much for all the work that went into this list! I have lots of new recipes to try!

    • Shirley on April 11th, 2014 2:54 pm

      Hi Michelle–I’m glad this listing is going to be helpful to you! :-) I actually checked out all the links after I read your comment and other than a few being down because one friend transitioning to a new site, I found no other broken links or links to disturbing websites. I’d be grateful if you would email me the specific links (with screen shots) that you had issues with to glutenfreeeasily @ gmail.com. Happy bread baking!

      Shirley
