Easy Sandwich Bread

If you are like me, you enjoy a good sandwich now and then, but finding the perfect bread can be challenging.  Okay, that’s a bit melodramatic and, truth be told, right now it’s all about saving money for those of us living in regions dependent on oil and gas.

Anyway, homemade bread is hard to beat and a bread machine makes things so easy!  My only issue with bread machine bread (almost started shortening that to BM, but I caught it just in time), is that it can be so huge.  I made a loaf last week and it was delicious, but you could have surfed the Gold Coast on a slice of that baby.

I found this gem of a recipe and love that you can have the bread machine (snicker) do the hard part for you.  I set mine to “Dough,” then when it was ready, I threw it into a longer loaf pan and finished it in the oven.  Fantastic!

Without further ado…

Here’s my picture, with this awesome bread slicer I got on Amazon.com for around $11.

Sadly, you will be unable to use this bread as a life raft, as you could with its predecessors.
