It's said that a sandwich is only as good as the bread you use for making them.
I tend to agree.
Are you a bargain white bread shopper, or do you have a specific brand/type that you use?

Yummy Dave!!
Yep, I like that brand myself.
Pepperidge Farm Whole Grain (http://www.pfwholegrains.com/ProductDetail.aspx?prd_product_id=120626)
That's what I usually buy these days.

I'll tell you what I miss.
A bread that I used to buy in the U.K.
It was called Blackpool Milk Roll, round loaf of bread that made perfectly cute sandwiches lol

Sometimes the 79 cent dough-white bread.

Sometimes the fresh Italian or Vienna that comes from the bakery. My favorite is the local bakery's sourdough.

It depends on my mood.

Great Harvest -- chain bakery that uses whole grains and no preservatives. Good dense breads.

Any bread that is 100% whole wheat and without hydrogenated oils, mono/di- glycerides and corn syrup.

I like white bread! Don't want to eat the other stuff! However, in an effort to be more healthily correct, we have switched to Sara Lee Whole Grain White.

Wheat bread for sure. I HATE rye bread. Ate a sandwich in the Denver airport yesterday that was made from some AWESOME wheat bread. Wonder what kind it was...:mellow:

wheat or multi grain for me for a sandwich................and I like BIG breads, not the puny sizes.

for toast it is white, or a mutli grain bagle with fat free spread.

for a breakfast out it is biscuits with gravy, white, and I know not healthy

With HP sauce, I hope!
I still make those under the broiler (grill) Galvi, and beans on toast ;)

We get a variety, and make our own too.


One thing we like to do, is after brewing beer, use some of the steeped black patent, crystal, and chocolate malts in the recipe. We'll add about 1/2 cup to a loaf. Really yummy!

We have not bought ANY bread in more than 3 years. I make it all, from basic white bread to rye, wheat, sourdough, hamburger & hotdog buns, artisan and multi-grain breads. All made with unbleached, unbromated flours and all natural preservatives like olive oil and butter. Of course, most people prefer to buy from the store because it will keep in the bread box for 10 days without molding or spoiling.

Ironman, I love Arnold bread too-- Pepperidge Farms and Aunt Millie's.
PF make neat little flat breads (deli flats) that are perfect for sandwiches.
Today I had a big fatty grilled cheese on Aunt Millie's Light Potato bread with caramelized onions and Progresso tomato soup.

We make a lot of our own (sorry - no great pictures like JEV posted) but if we buy it's a heavy, hearty rye. JEV, your post makes me want to go do some baking but it's been a long day following a very short night; think I'll go fall down instead.
