“One of my favorite gluten-free bread mixes if you want fresh made rolls, hamburger buns, or cinnamon rolls is Chebe bread. I’ve talked about their products before and I’m not exaggerating at all when I say they are so easy to use and delicious!! And they’re even grain-free. Amazing!!
This holiday appetizer is extremely simple, but it’s baked into a wreath shape. Then covered in delicious ranch-flavored cream cheese and topped with broccoli bits and red pepper.
See, there’s vegetables. It’s healthy! 😉” – MinneCeliac

- 1 package (7.5 oz) Chebe Original Cheese Bread Mix
- 2 Eggs Room Temperature
- 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
- 3-4 Tbsp Water
- 8 oz Cream Cheese Softened
- 2 Tbsp Dry Ranch Seasoning
- 1 ½ cup Chopped Broccoli Florets
- ½ cup Red Pepper Diced
Preheat oven to 375F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, prepare Chebe mix according to directions. I typically use about 3 tablespoons of water for the dough so it doesn’t get too sticky.
Knead the dough until it’s all well-combined. Cut into 12 equal parts and then roll those into balls. If you have a kitchen scale, you’re looking at about 28 grams each. If you don’t have a scale, it may help to roll it into a log shape and then slice it off into equal pieces.
Place dough balls in a circle on your parchment paper lined baking sheet. Leave about ½ inch between each dough ball. I try to imagine I’m building a clock and place the dough balls where the numbers would be.
Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes until lightly golden brown. Let cool completely.
Mix together the cream cheese and 2 Tablespoons of dry ranch seasoning until smooth.
Spread cream cheese mixture over wreath. I used about ¾ of the cream cheese mixture to cover the wreath. Note: You can use the leftovers as a dip for veggies or crackers.
Layer the chopped broccoli over the top of the cream cheese mix-ture. I try to kind of push it down into the cream cheese so it has something to stick on. Then sprinkle the diced red pepper on the top.
You can certainly buy dry ranch seasoning (there are about 3 Table-spoons per package). Or you can make your own!
For the bow, take about ¼ of the remainder of the pepper and cut off the ends so you get a somewhat flat piece. Then “skin” the pep-per using a knife so that you’ve scraped off most of the “meat” and just a thin layer of the skin is remaining. I found it easiest to cut out the top part of the bow and the tails separately. Then place them in the center on the top of the wreath!
As with most of the Chebe mixes, you can really use them inter-changeably. So for this recipe, you can also use the Garlic-Onion Breadstick Mix or you can use the All-Purpose Mix and replace the water with milk in the recipe.
