    need recipe for "hamburger buns" with tapioca and/or white rice flours

    Primal Fuel
    I've got hamburgers on the agenda this week. My husband is totally NOT on the PB bandwagon so I got a pkg of regular buns for his burgers but I know the kids will feel left out if they don't get them either. Having said that, I've eliminated wheat from their diet so I would really love to be able to make some buns or something for them to have instead.

    I don't have any xanthan or guar gum, which I know is a key ingredient, so is there anything I CAN do for them? I'll just eat mine sans bun in either case.

    Uh, why?

    The bun is the most boring part of the burger. I just take my burger and eat it like a dressed steak. Tomatoes, pickles, mustard, bacon - yum!

    That being said, If I NEEDED something breadlike, I would take this recipe for banana bread on the basis that it does indeed come out very bread-like, and substitute cauliflower or some type of squash for the banana. If I needed buns I would probably try and bake them individually in small, round, flat-bottomed pyrex dishes.

    I've tried Rivvin's angry bread, and while it is fast and easy the recipe I linked is a much better approximation of bread.

    I've not made the oopsie rolls, but I do like Rivvin's angry bread for hamburgers. I make them in a dish about the size of a packaged burger bun then slice in half and toast both sides of each half in a pan with either bacon drippings or butter. They seem to hold up better that way.

    I do "burger salads": pile of lettuce, then the burger patty and all the toppings I'd normally put on a burger. The "real" burgers end up looking skimpy and sad by comparison. Of course, your kids may still want that bun even though the bunned burgers are borrrrrrring.

    jhc - I agree with you, I eat my burgers that way too. But my 2-year old and 4-year old kids don't see things the same way as I do. Given the fact that my husband is not primal and still wants a bun with his, I'm not going to make my kids eat the way I do and be envious of his bun. It would be a whole lot easier to make them something of their own which would seem more special to them.
