Have you ever wished that you could improve on the normal everyday things in your life? A better car? A better vacuum cleaner? What about something as simple as a better sandwich?
Pshaw! you say. My sandwich is fine. Why would I want to improve that?
I say, you don't know what you're missing, and I'm not even a sandwich girl!
Last Friday I was sent three kinds of Oroweat bread from their Dutch Country line to try: 100% Whole Wheat, Extra Fiber, and Potato. I had already planned on having BLTs for dinner so we dove right in. I am not kidding when I say that it was the best BLT I've ever had. I lightly toasted the potato bread, added fresh cooked bacon, tomatos from the garden, a little light mayo and some lettuce....mmmmm, divine.
On Saturday after my son's football game we decided to make some french toast for brunch. [To make french toast: Eggs (approx. 1 egg per 2 slices of bread), milk (a splash or a little more), and cinnamon, mixed well, then dredge the bread and cook in a hot skillet until golden brown.] Honestly? I will never make it without the Dutch Country Potato bread again. Ever. evereverever.
Lest you think that all we ate was the potato bread, let me introduce you to the Dutch Country 100% Whole Wheat. Headless Dad has always insisted on whole wheat bread, and our usual brand has High Fructose Corn Syrup so over the years I've tried other brands that don't have it. All to no avail, until now. None of the Oroweat varieties we tried have any HFCS. Score! All through the week HD has had his lunch sandwich on the Oroweat 100% Whole Wheat and he said the other day, "Hey, I really like this. We could switch to this bread." I hope Oroweat knows what a huge compliment that is!
If you're looking to add a little extra fiber to your diet, then the Extra fiber Whole Wheat is a great choice. With 4 grams of fiber per slice, (compared to 3 grams in the Whole Wheat or 1 gram in the potato,) you might expect it to be 'thicker', but that is not the case. The texture of all of the Dutch Country breads is smooth and light, and the Extra Fiber is no exception.
