A commercially produced sandwich bread

Sandwich bread (also referred to as sandwich loaf) is bread that is prepared specifically to be used for the preparation of sandwiches. Sandwich breads are produced in many varieties, such as white, whole wheat, sourdough, rye, multigrain and others. Sandwich bread may be formulated to slice easily, cleanly or uniformly, and may have a fine crumb (the soft, inner part of bread) and a light texture. Sandwich bread may be designed to have a balanced proportion of crumb and crust, whereby the bread holds and supports fillings in place and reduces drips and messiness. Some may be designed to not become crumbly, hardened, dried or have too squishy a texture. Sandwich bread can refer to cross-sectionally square, sliced white and wheat bread, which has been described as “perfectly designed for holding square luncheon meat”. The bread used for preparing finger sandwiches is sometimes referred to as sandwich bread. Pain de mie is a sandwich loaf. Some sandwich breads are designed for use in the creation of specific types of sandwiches, such as the submarine sandwich. For barbecuing, use of a high-quality white sandwich bread has been described as suitable for toasting over a fire. Gluten-free sandwich bread may be prepared using gluten-free flour, teff flour, and other ingredients.

 

 

In the 1930s in the United States, the term sandwich loaf referred to sliced bread. In contemporary times, U.S. consumers sometimes refer to white bread such as Wonder Bread as sandwich bread and sandwich loaf. Wonder Bread produced and marketed a bread called Wonder Round sandwich bread, which was designed to be used with round-shaped cold cuts and other fillings such as eggs and hamburgers, but it was discontinued due to low consumer demand. American sandwich breads have historically included some fat derived from the use of milk or oil to enrich the bread.

 

Sliced white bread

Some companies and restaurants, such as Subway, bake bread that is specifically used for the preparation of sandwiches. Pepperidge Farm produces breads designed and marketed to be used in sandwich preparation. Nature’s Pride is another brand that has produced sandwich bread. Bonn Group of Industries, a food company based in Ludhiana Punjab, India, produces a product called Super Sandwich Bread. Some supermarket chains, such as H-E-B, produce their own store brands of sandwich bread. Some mass-produced sandwich breads are sliced before being packaged, while others are packaged unsliced. Some companies, such as Nissen, also produce sandwich rolls.

 

 

In 2012, the New Jersey State Fair/Sussex County Farm and Horse Show held The Fleischmann’s yeast “Sensational Sandwich Bread” contest, in which contestants submitted their homemade sandwich bread prepared using Fleischmann’s Yeast. Breads were judged under the criteria of appearance, flavor, texture, sandwich filling and creativity. The contest included cash prizes and state and national grand-prize winners.

* My favorite is Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread

Brown Sugar……………

If your brown sugar has clumped into pieces, place a piece of soft white bread in the packet and the sugar will break back down into sandy granules in a few hours. To stop it happening again, make sure the storage space is nice and dry.

The Cookie Jar……

 
To keep your cookies chewy, add half an apple or a slice of white bread to the cookie jar. This will provide just enough moisture to keep the cookies from becoming hard.

If you can help it, never buy beans, peas, or lentils in cans, unless they’re significantly marked down. These items are much more cost-effective if you purchase them dry. You’ll have to plan ahead in order to soak them overnight, but once you get used to this extra step, it will seem routine.

Did you know that the best time to shop for meat is in the morning? That is usually when the butcher marks down meat that is close to its sell-by-date. If you won’t cook it tonight, freeze it for later

Many dollar stores have more than just easy decorations, cheap toys, and fake flowers – they also have food. Make sure to check the prices for canned goods and other staples in your neighborhood dollar store. You may be surprised at the deals you find!

Are your popcorn kernels too pooped to pop? It’s probably because they have lost too much moisture, but they can be revived. Soak the kernels in water for five minutes, then dry them off and try again.

Brown sugar loses moisture rather quickly and develops lumps easily. To soften hardened sugar, place the sugar in a tightly covered dish with a slice of fresh white bread or half an apple, cover the dish tightly, and heat for 15 – 20 seconds in the microwave. Let it stand five minutes before using. The moisture from the bread or apple will produce enough steam to soften the sugar without melting it. Store brown sugar in the freezer to keep it from getting lumpy in the first place.
