More Than Just A Roll Of Bread


There’s nothing like enjoying a delicious sandwich with a variety of meats, cheese, and vegetables. If you don’t have sandwich bread to use, there are a few other options that you can consider. When you go to your local bakery and see deli breads that are on sale or if you have a few left over from a meal, consider a few recipes that you can make for a simple meal. 

A bread that you can use for a variety of meals is kaiser rolls. You can break the rolls into small pieces to bake so that you have croutons for soups and salads. They can also be cut in half to make French toast or French dip sandwiches. You can also crumble the rolls into fine pieces after they are baked so that they are dry to make breadcrumbs. The crumbs can then be used as a garnish for different recipes or as a binder in recipes like meatloaf. 

If you have whole pieces of bread, you can put butter and garlic salt on one side to make garlic toast. Add shredded cheese to the toast for more flavor. When you put the toast in the oven, make sure the pan is lightly buttered so that the bread doesn’t stick. If you don’t have rolls from a bakery, then try to find hamburger buns or hot dog buns that the bakery might have left over from the day’s orders. 

Rolls are good to use when making a breakfast casserole. They usually have more flavor than plain bread and hold the egg mixture that you use for the casserole a bit better than standard white pieces of bread. Top the bread and egg mixture with crumbled sausage or diced ham and shredded cheese. 

Dice rolls into small square pieces to make bread pudding. This is a recipe that can be customized based on the flavors that your family enjoys. A fun recipe is peanut butter and banana bread pudding. You can also make S’mores with marshmallow cream and graham cracker pieces. While you’re making a few desserts, make a pineapple upside down cake using halves of the rolls that you have as a base with caramel and pineapple rings on top. Put another layer of rolls on top of the pineapple before drizzling with more caramel. Bake until the pineapple begins to turn a golden color. Top the cake with cherry slices. You can also hide the leftover rolls that you use by simply not putting more pieces of bread on the top of the cake. 

Sandwiches are easy to make with a kaiser roll and can often be heartier than what you would make with white bread. Use baked chicken for a healthy sandwich option or chicken salad for a refreshing lunch or dinner. Add a little spice to your sandwich by making buffalo chicken or pork and putting it on the roll along with a light covering of slaw. Rolls of this type make good hamburger buns as well because they can hold up to the meat and the various toppings that you enjoy on the sandwich.
