Food Review: Live G Free Gluten Free Pancake & Baking Mix

Live G Free Pancake & Baking Mix
It's an OK biscuit but lacks flakiness


My favorite meal of the day is breakfast and my preference is some kind of meat, egg, and cheese on bread, which can be a biscuit, a tortilla, a croissant roll, heck a hamburger or hot dog bun is fine too.

But going gluten-free back in May kind of put restrictions on that breakfast preference.  Gluten-free bread straight out of the package kind of sucks.  Toasting GF bread is OK, but it's still not as good as a regular wheat product.  Gluten-free tortillas just aren't as good as the real deal, no matter the preparation.  I like cheese wraps and eat them often, especially in keeping the carb count in check, but they don't satisfy a craving for bread.

So today, I sampled Live G Free Gluten Free Pancake & Baking Mix.

GF Biscuits
Prepared per the box instructions

I prepared the biscuits per the box instructions, baking them for about 14 minutes.  I didn't doctor them up at all for this sampling.  Although baked through, they turned out a bit blonde, not lightly browned on top like in the package photo.  A brushing of garlic butter on the top would have fixed that, but I didn't do so, as part of the "as is" review.  I made bacon, egg, and cheese biscuits, in line with my preferred breakfast, and while the biscuits tasted OK, they lack the flakiness of a traditional wheat eat.  To sum up, adequate, but not "YUM!"

Costing me about $2.50, I'm giving Live G Free Gluten Free Pancake & Baking Mix 3 out of 5 Bachelor on the Cheap Stars.  Like other gluten-free bread, this is a much more dense product than its traditional wheat counterpart.  I'm not a pancake kind of guy, but I will try that next, but after sampling the biscuits, I have to say this is a borderline repeat buy.  The biscuits are OK, but don't measure up to a good, real deal biscuit.  My guess is the pancakes will share the same traits.
