They were so kind to send me Canyon Bakehouse Whole Grain White, Cinnamon Raisin and Hamburger Buns for review. Now I keep them in the freezer so they can last me a while, especially being diabetic I don't need to eat it every day, since the carbs can rack my glucose numbers up. I have (broil-toasted, because if I toasted in our toaster it would cross contaminate my gluten free bread) some of the cinnamon raisin bread to go with my eggs and had a bun with our fave sloppy joes and homemade chicken strip sandwich. I will admit these are very delicious and a nice change from other breads I was trying. I looked them up and one store nearby says they carry them so I'll have to check that out.

Canyon Bakehouse Gluten-Free Stuffing Recipe
(since I had 1 loaf, I cut this recipe in half)

2 Loaves of Canyon Bakehouse Whole Grain Mountain White Bread
1/3 Cup butter
½ Cup chopped celery
2 Tablespoons chopped onions
1 Teaspoon poultry seasoning
½ Teaspoon salt
¼ Teaspoon pepper
2 Eggs
Approx 1 cup turkey or chicken broth (be sure it's gluten free! *I had to add more)
Approx ½ cup milk

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Toast Canyon Bakehouse Whole Grain Mountain White Bread until slightly brown and cool completely. Once cooled crumble bread into a large bowl. Sauté celery and onion in butter until softened, 5-10 minutes. Add onion/celery mix to toasted bread crumbs then add seasonings. Mix well. Add enough milk to moisten then add 2 eggs and mix well. Next, add the broth until very moist and mix well. Transfer mixture to a greased shallow baking dish. Bake at 375 degrees for 50-60 minutes until cooked through golden brown. Slightly stir the stuffing half way through baking time. Enjoy!

Sadly this recipe did not turn out for me. I am used to the more wetter stuffing recipes, that clumb together (and yes I make them from scratch too). This was dry in texture, none of the bread cubes clumped together. It was almost like a side of soft loose croutons. So sad it did not work out for me, even after adding more broth. I did try some of the bread before I cut it up, and I loved it.
