There’s a lot to be said for being able to slap some food between two slices of bread and call it a meal. If you’ve gone gluten-free, though, the sheer convenience of the humble sandwich isn’t always that simple. While there are a lot of gluten-free sandwich breads out there, a lot of options can leave you wanting more.

That’s not to say that there aren’t some loaves that are pretty darn close to the real thing. We searched high and low for the closest comparison and found some awesome contenders. Here are our picks for the three best nationally available brands that can successfully satisfy your sandwich cravings.

Note: Although some of these brands have loaves in the bakery or bread aisle, you’ll mostly find them in the freezer section.

1. Canyon Bakehouse 7-Grain Bread

Gluten-free experts, including Runner’s World, Gluten Free Forever, and Organic Spa magazines, love the soft-yet-hearty texture of the 7-Grain Bread. But that’s not all. The brand’s Cinnamon Raisin Bread is toast-lover’s dream and the bagels top everyone’s list, from Delight Gluten-Free magazine to Gluten Free and More magazine. (Also, who knew there were so many magazines dedicated to the gluten-free lifestyle?)

2. Udi’s

Udi’s is ubiquitous, and with good reason. We love the company’s Multigrain loaf. The White Sandwich Bread is the top pick at Saveur. Gluten-free bloggers around the web also tout the company’s baguettes and rolls. And Whole Foods awarded the brand the 2017 Natural Choice Award for Sensitive Diet Foods. Clearly, this is a can’t-go-wrong crowd-pleaser.

3. Schär Gluten Free Artisan Baker Multigrain Bread

This one might seem new to you, but it’s one of the oldest gluten-free bakeries in the business, and a European staple. Schär got its start in Italy in 1981. From there it moved to the UK, Germany, and finally the States, opening its U.S. production facility in 2012. The Multigrain and Classic White consistently rank in the top five of gluten-free bread taste tests, including the Gluten Free Buyers Guide.
