HBin5 Challenge – Whole Wheat Sandwich Bread

by jenjenk on February 1, 2010

I love sandwich bread.  Ok, that’s not exactly true.  I love grilled cheese sandwiches, which happens to use sandwich breads. I was really excited about this particular challenge because it was a win-win situation. I got to learn to make a whole wheat sandwich bread and got to eat a grilled cheese sandwich on top of it [yeah, yeah…i’m trying to eat healthier this year…but really, WHOLE WHEAT…and Dairy/Calcium.  That’s healthy, right? Don’t tell me otherwise, I’m not listening].
So since I am trying to pretend like I’m eating healthier, I opted to make a gruyere and turkey sandwich on the whole wheat bread. I threw in some cranberries and some arugula from my garden.  It made a great dinner!

Your loaf is wonderful and being Grilled Cheese is one of my favorites, I bet it was delicious! Love the idea of arugula and cranberries and I think I might steal that idea! Oh yea!

Grilled cheese is one of my favorite too, although your turkey with Gruyere sounds fabulous! Your loaf looks like it turned out great.

What a wonderful looking grilled cheese! Arugula from your garden? I'm so jealous! My garden is under snow right now.

Mmm….grilled cheese. When the bread is healthy I feel a little less guility about the cheese part. What a classic flavor combination – just beautiful.

I tried to make whole wheat sandwich bread a couple weekends ago…didn't quite workout. Maybe I'll crack open my HB in 5 and give that recipe a try! Yours looks perfect!
