I make a simple flaxseed focacia bread whenever I really want a sandwich. Also works well as a pizza crust.

2 cups flax seed meal or ground flax seed
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
5 beaten eggs
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup oil
+ generous amounts of dried or fresh herbs of choice (rosemary and oregano are my favorites so far)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cover a baking pan with lightly greased parchment paper.
Combine dry ingredients, then add wet ingredients. Mix quickly and immediately spread over the parchment paper as evenly as you can. Bake in the oven for about 20-30 minutes and then cut with a pizza cutter.

It's very much a rustic, dense bread, but certainly not cardboard. (If you like your bread sweeter, I highly recommend tossing in a 2-3 tablespoons of sugar or sugar substitute.) My non-GF parents both like it. Careful though - this is SUPER filling and has lots of fiber, so one small slice is plenty for a sandwich.
You can also adjust the ratios of the main ingredients as long as your dough turns out an OK consistency. I think I usually use less oil, fewer eggs, and more ground flaxseed.
