If you can't eat wheat, these delicious and easy to make gluten free sandwiches are exactly what you need!
Everything from classic grilled cheese to vegan jackfruit "pulled pork," this list of over 12 different sandwich combinations is one you'll want to keep coming back to over and over again.
If you're on a gluten free diet, you obviously can't eat wheat-based bread. So what should you do if you want to make a tasty gluten free sandwich?
Well, my friend, here are a few options for you...
Make your own bread
- Ever tried making gluten free bread in a bread machine? It only takes 15 minutes of preparation time and the bread machine does all the work for you. (That's my kind of baking, how about you?!)
- If you need a loaf of rich, buttery bread, try making gluten free brioche. It's got a crisp crust with a fluffy crumb. It's so good it might not even make it into sandwich form!
- Make your own gluten free english muffins. Perfect for breakfast sandwiches, obviously, but they'd be great for any of the recipes on this list!
Buy a loaf of gluten free bread
There are lots of great brands of gluten free bread on the market right now. Here are a few of my favourites, plus some from the gluten free community:
- Little Northern Bakehouse: I'm a huge fan of the Seeds & Grain loaf, while my daughter will only ever eat the Wide White Slice. This brand carries dairy free, vegan, and egg free options.
- Promise Gluten Free: 12 seeds & grains, brioche, multigrain - this brand has so many options! (Their raisin bread is one of my favourites, too!)
- Schar: This company makes a variety of gluten free foods that make anyone with celiac disease happy (myself included). I can't get enough of their gluten free ciabatta buns and baguettes.
- Canyon Bakehouse: Dairy free, gluten free, nut free and soy free - this brand has loaves, rolls and buns. Perfect for all your sandwich-making dreams!
- Carbonaut: This low-carb brand also sells gluten free loaves that are soft, fluffy and perfect for a BLT, grilled cheese, or vegan pulled pork sandwich!
Don't use bread at all
Change things up and skip the slices of bread for your sandwiches!
- Use a waffle. Yes, that's right - I said a waffle! Make a batch of Oat Flour Waffles to use instead of bread. Kinnikinnick, Nature's Path and Van's also make really great gluten free waffles.
- Roll it up in a tortilla. Make your own or buy a package of Siete, Mission, Toufayan, Food for Life, or Caulipower gluten free tortillas from the grocery store!
Now on to the recipes...
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, right?! Start yours off right with these tasty gluten free egg sandwiches. Make them ahead of time for an easy option before school/work, or take them on the go. Add in some vegetables, meat or a bit of cheese - the options are endless!

Sandwiches with Cheese
Grilled cheese is a sandwich classic. Make it gluten free by using your favourite loaf of gluten free, grain free or keto bread!
Tried halloumi? It's a delicious cheese made from sheep and goat's milk that takes a sandwich to another level!
But wait - is cheese gluten free? Yes, cheese is naturally gluten free, but as always, check product packaging to ensure no gluten ingredients have been added and there are no cross contamination warnings.
