Bread slabs

My new GFCF cookbook, Cooking for Isaiah, has a recipe for bread slabs. I had never baked anything referred to as a slab before but they looked like a great alternative to buns or sandwiches made from slices of gluten free bread so I made some. The recipe is incredibly easy. It uses the flour mix recipe given in the cookbook and a few other ingredients that include yeast, egg whites and olive oil.
You simply stir together the dough and then let it rest for 30 minutes under plastic wrap before cutting it into 4 squares. Meanwhile, heat a baking stone in a hot oven (450 degrees).

Place the dough slabs on the hot stone and bake for 10 minutes.

That's all it takes! 10 minutes! They poof up and brown up all nice and crispy on the outside. They even smell good while baking (not all GF bread does).

They make a great PB & J. Bean loves PB & J sandwiches. Java isn't a real bread eater so I cut hers in half before packing it in her lunch.

I ate the other half. It was good. Not just "I can tolerate this as a bread substitute good" but really GOOD!
