That’s right. Simple, plain jane, ah-freaking-mazing homemade white bread. It’s a classic, a staple in any home. And it comes straight from my mama.
My mom bakes the best white bread, soft and tender and better than anything you’ll find at the store. And her strawberry peach jam is out of this world. A fat slice of mom’s bread fresh and warm slathered in her strawberry peach jam is my idea of heaven.
This sandwich actually started out as a bonafide BLT. But one day I forgot the lettuce, and I realized that I could taste the tomatoes SO MUCH BETTER without all that green stuff in the way. So I’ve been eating my homemade BLTs minus the lettuce ever since.
We’ve spent a lot of our summer poolside during lunchtime. And, of course, I’ve been packing my favorite sandwich as often as humanly possible.
I quickly discovered that by leaving the lettuce out of the equation, I was losing the major barrier between my sandwich bread and my sopping wet tomatoes! The mayonnaise sort of helps. But not enough. Thank goodness Rubbermaid swooped in and saved the day.
Rubbermaid recently sent me their BRILLIANCE Lunch set to test out using our favorite on-the-go summer lunches and healthy snacks.
- 2 1/2 cups warm water
- 2 tbsp instant yeast
- 1/2 cup honey
- 5-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 3 tbsp nonfat dry milk
- 1 tbsp salt
- Add the warm water to your mixing bowl. Sprinkle the yeast over top and add the honey. Let rest for 5 minutes until the yeast is foamy.
- Add the flour, dry milk, and salt. Mix well until dough forms and is just barely pulling away from the sides of the bowl (I use the dough hook on my stand mixer to do this).
