I was recently given the opportunity by Moms Meet to review some samples of Dave’s Killer Bread. Since I’m always in favor of healthy foods for my family, I was pretty happy to try it out. The loaves I tried were Organic and Non-GMO (YAY!!) and I was pretty happy with the results.
First off, I’m American and I grew up knowing the awesomeness of bread. I like this brand of bread – it’s very hearty, good amounts of the seeds/grains, very chewable, nice flavor – kind of like artisinal breads that you’d find in an actual bakery or at a farmer’s market. And using similarly hearty and rustic-y ingredients for a sandwich with this bread is the way to to go. Bold flavors that also add to the texture already present in the bread.
This is not the bread for a PB&J, or a single slice of american cheese. My kids just do not have the mature palate needed to appreciate this bread. Also, I think they weren’t comfy with all the seeds and grains in the bread. They prefer more ‘squish’ when they chew their food. Sadly, my Japanese husband grew up bread-deprived. His idea of proper bread rhymes with ‘blunder head’.
So I decided to circumvent their ‘overly healthy’ sensors and resorted to subterfuge.
Good Seed Bread
This bread makes a darn good french toast! I don’t mean that ‘barely dip the bread in the beaten egg’ nonsense – I mean making a real custard base – eggs, milk, a little brown sugar, various spices – and SOAKING the bread until it’s almost falling apart (and this bread actually holds up pretty well!), and then placing it in the frypan (I use cast iron) or grill and COVERING it, so it can steam itself, turning when the bottom side is brown enough for your tastes – the french toast will rise a bit.
The beauty of this bread is that it’s flavor is complemented by the custard base, not overpowered by it, and all the seeds and grains add lovely texture to it, instead of the mushiness that regular breads end up with.
The kids ate this with no complaints and my husband asked for seconds! SCOOOOOOOORRRRRREEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This bread gets a 5-star rating for french toast-ibility!
21 Whole Grains And Seeds Bread
So I decided to stay within the non-sandwich range of cookery and tried this flavor of Dave’s Killer Bread in a bread pudding recipe – Pumpkin Cranberry Bread Pudding.
And again, the bread keeps it’s flavor clear, the seeds/grains adding to the texture, saving the world from mushiness, and just generally being awesome! This was a great autumny, rustic-y showcase for this bread. And the kiddos and husband also enjoyed eating it!
This bread gets a 5-star rating for breadpudding-ibility!
