There are few things as satisfying on your lunch break as a hearty sandwich packed with delicious goodies, but for those with coeliac disease, this staple bready treat can be totally off limits. Thankfully, a tempting alternative is available in the form of cornbread, a mainstay of American comfort food.
Cornbread does not traditionally contain yeast, and in this version flour is omitted, so the resulting texture is something like a savoury scone. The steak and onion filling is protein-rich. For a tasty vegetarian alternative, why not try substituting the steak with grilled halloumi.
Cornmeal is also known as polenta and is available in most major supermarkets, particularly in the world foods section.
