Bread and NOT Soggy

I keep forgetting that MY bread resides in the freezer and if I want some I need to do a little planning.  Tonight was burger night and at the last minute I realized that the really yummy Publix bakery burger buns were NOT ok for me so I had to quickly toast my gluten free bread or eat it frozen.  Almost forgot the prophylactic paper towel under the finished and hot toast!  Jeez, almost had mush for a bun!  You see, condensation is the squishy kiss of death to GF breads.  

Once the toast was finished I put the mayo on it since by now, I knew this puppy was gonna be dry.  Dry as an August day in Las Vegas, dry. You see, I like my burgers medium well so there is no pink.  This CAN make it dry although my hubby is the best burger griller there is! So combine a well-done burger with a DRY, DRY piece of toast and, well, not enough mayo in the world, really.  

OK It was NOT that bad, but next time I MUST remember to defrost the damned bread first!

Speaking of bread, my goal this week is to make a good loaf of gluten free bread.  Bread baking is a specialty of mine, or it used to be, so I have armed myself with rice flour, sorghum flour, tapioca flour, potato flour, potato starch, and xanthan gum.  I may actually have missed a flour in there.  I figure that it's "Good bread or bust!"
Obviously I will post about the breads and results both good and possibly bad!
