Around late May, I received a message from some of the great people at Happy Campers to review some of their "Wild Buns." With summer now here, people probably would want to get the grill out and have some burgers. I gladly accepted the offer, getting a sample of four gluten-free "Wild Buns" from Zoe at the Lake Oswego Farmers' Market on June 2.
Maybe the auto default option is to make a burger. Get some beef (or even veggie) patties, lettuce, tomato, the usual burger condiments, and nosh away. I actually had a few other plans for the buns, though. Amazing, this is one of those very rare blog posts where I actually get to make something at home!
One morning, I tried an open-faced sandwich, toasting each half of the bun, then adding some cold-cut ham and a little cheese. I then threw it under the broiler for just a little bit. I intended to melt the cheese, but in my attempt to try this fat-free cheddar option, I think it just hardened into a little shell on top instead.

Wish I could eat a few more of these...so good
They gave me four buns; on the last one, I merely had another turkey meatloaf burger as shown above. Bottom line, get these wild buns. Gluten-free items are generally more expensive than their gluten-filled counterparts, but you'll enjoy the quality that goes into each item sold.
There are few gluten-free breads (if any) that would top this, and thus, they have earned an elite rating from me. Jan, Lacy, and the rest of the Happy Campers crew should be proud of this product. 9/10
