Buffalo Chicken Buns
As you may know, I was diagnosed with a gluten allergy a few years ago. Not Celiac, mind you, just an inflammatory thing, secondary to my autoimmune hypothyoid. Big fun, made my life miserable, gave me fibromyalgia... and then everything cleared up once I went gluten free.
At the time, my Dr offered me a slight bit of hope: Go off gluten for a 2-3 years, things MAY heal themselves, and the allergy could clear up. MAYBE.
Flash forward a year and a half. I'd been really good, and only caved once, early on. (Got so violently ill, I swore off gluten for the rest of my sentence!). One day, I made a batch of bagels for my husband that looked and smelled SO good, I caved. I rationalized that it had been long enough. I mean, I tend to heal ridiculously fast, so odds were good, right? I rationalized that eating a bagel would be done "in the name of SCIENCE!", and how would I know how things were progressing, if I didn't test it?
I rationalized that any fallout from it would be worth it. I mean really, those suckers were loaded with toasted caraway! I ate one, with no problem. I savored it, angels sang, my world became more colorful in that instant, it was breathtaking.
So, I ate 3 more. Well... more like inhaled. I figured hey, if I am going to get sick, I am going to make it really worth my while! If I'm going to do the time... 😀
Well, I didn't get sick. No pain, no fibro, absolutely no lingering evidence of the hell that gluten put me through just a couple years ago. WOO HOO!
I've been on the most ridiculously hedonistic gluten bender ever since. Bagels! Baguettes! A real doughnut! Loads of bread. I thought... "Oh yes, the goddess of gluten is back in full effect!"
Except not. BOO. Took a week or two, and then the problems set in again.
So, I'm back to gluten-free, but would love to share one of the very first things I baked after being sprung from "gluten free jail": Buffalo Chicken buns. I developed this recipe a few years ago, and have been dreaming of it ever since! So ridiculously good.
