National BBQ Month has typically been a nightmare for Celiacs and vegetarians. For Celiacs, BBQ’s have been especially impossible to eat at because most veggie burgers are made with gluten.
That being said, thanks to Rudi’s Soft and Yummy Hamburger Buns and Amy’s Gluten-Free Sonoma Veggie Burger everyone can take part in your next family BBQ! The Amy’s veggie patties come frozen, but fully cooked. Therefore, you want to be careful not to overcook them. For our gluten-free buns, keep them stored in the freezer and when it’s time to use them, separate with a serrated knife and throw on the grill for some light toasting! Note: Our gluten-free buns will toast faster than normal buns so be sure to keep an attentive eye on them.
Personally, I like adding fresh sautéed veggies to my burger too! Mushrooms, Onions and Peppers are my staple veggie toppers.
Of course, if your are not dairy-free, I would throw some smoked cheddar cheese on the patties during their final stage of cooking.
Most BBQ sauces are gluten free, but be sure to read the ingredient labels and try to buy sauces that are sweetened with sugar instead of high-fructose corn syrup.
