4 – Ingredient Gluten-Free Cheese Buns – who said gluten-free baking has to be complicated? These buns have a sourdough texture and are slightly crusty on the outside. The best part, this gluten-free bun recipe is easy enough for even novice bakers.

ways to serve cheese buns

These gluten-free cheese buns make a tasty addition to breakfast and brunch, or serve them with warming soups and stews.

I often grill them on a barbecue when the hot weather hits and serve them with sliders, like these turkey burgers. What I love about these gluten-free buns, they toast well.

During the cold winter months, I make them into garlic rolls. Slice the buns in half and generously spread garlic butter on each side. Pop them under a grill for about a minute, and the gluten-free cheese buns become delicious fresh garlic bread.

Sounds too good to be true? It’s true 🙂

the recipe details

To start, you only need one flour. I used Bob’s Red Mill baking flour and found that the flour worked beautifully. The only thing to remember is that the gluten-free flour blend must include xanthan gum.

Next, you will need plain, thick Greek yogurt, cheddar cheese and baking soda. That’s it for special ingredients. I omitted salt from my list of special ingredients. That’s because everyone has salt in the pantry.

gluten-free cheese buns recipe details

Since we have only four ingredients, this gluten-free bun recipe can’t be that complicated, and it isn’t. In fact, the recipe is super easy.

First, mix the flour, baking soda and cheese. Then, add the yogurt and mix until a sticky dough forms. That is all it takes to make the dough. 

I used a large cookie scoop to shape the buns. You can also use a large spoon or an ice cream scoop. This way, you don’t even have to touch the dough and get messy hands. Another two recipes you may enjoy is Gluten-Free Parker House Rolls or Easy Gluten-Free Butter Rolls.

Spoon the dough onto a baking sheet in even mounds. If you like, you can sprinkle the tops with sesame seeds. I love sesame seeds and use them often on rolls, bread or buns. The seeds add a nice flavour to savoury baked goods. Or I may use poppy seeds. They work well too.

baking temperature

The baking time is about 35 minutes. The oven temperature starts at 400 Fahrenheit, and then the temperature is reduced until the buns finish baking. There is nothing complicated about this gluten-free recipe.

If you are not that into baking, you must try to make these gluten-free cheese buns. This recipe is probably one of the easiest ones I have on the blog. And if you are a novice baker, this is an excellent gluten-free recipe to start baking. Enjoy!

Mary, the baking flour has less protein, this keeps the cheese buns softer

Comment--what is the difference in the flour? That is in the all purpose and baking flours? Also just wanted to say I'm scrolling through the pages of all your recipes, and forgot what I was looking for in the first place! There a lot I want to try!
