Sandwich Bread!

I've blogged before about how I use the master recipe from Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day for the majority of our breads (pitas, garlic bread, etc.), but I've used it to try to make plain old sandwich bread and it was just okay. We eat vegetarian at home, so it's not like we are huge sandwich eaters anyway. I love a good veggie sandwich, but the boys (John included) mainly stick to grilled cheese or PB&J, with the occasional chickpea salad (think tuna salad without the fishy taste) thrown in.

Anyway, it's difficult to find a homemade bread that will stand up to spreading refrigerated peanut butter on it but apparently it can be done! I tried out this new recipe yesterday and it was a huge hit. It's by the same authors as Healthy Bread in 5, but it is a bit less...HEALTHY. Tastes delicious though! I did sub a bit more whole wheat flour for part of the all purpose flour (ended up doing about half and half I think). I'm curious about what it would taste like with all whole wheat, but I doubt it would've gotten the rave reviews unfortunately.

I froze half the batch, so when I have time I plan to make the breadsticks (or maybe just another loaf of the bread since it was such a hit).
