I like to make bread but don't often find the time to do it. And I've yet to find a go-to recipe for a nice sandwich bread. Meanwhile my son takes a PB&J sandwich to school every day. Mostly we use a multi-grain sandwich bread we buy at Whole Foods and he likes it but it's kind of expensive and I really want to start making more of our bread from scratch. Does anyone have a recipe they can point me to?

https://toocheapforpinenuts.wordpress.c ... ade-bread/ This is my go-to. It works well and makes great sandwiches. I usually make a huge batch as buns and freeze them because my kids like buns better than slices. Loaves don't freeze so well and get kind of crumbly, but fresh or refrigerated they hold together great.

I'm going to piggy back on this because not only am I looking for a good whole grain recipe, but I'm looking for recommendations for recipes in a bread maker.

That recipe looks really good BB. Thanks for sharing.

I like to veganize recipes from 200 Bread Recipes by Joanna Farrow. It's a book where you use a bread machine to mix and knead, then you shape, let rise and bake in the oven. It's less work than making bread from scratch from start to finish. And it tastes much better than making it in the bread machine from start to finish, on top of being prettier. So for me it's the best compromise.

I always sub whole wheat bread flour for half the white bread flour asked for. The multigrain bread I love from this book is the cottage bread (a variation from the classic white bread). It has sesame, sunflower and flax seeds.

Looks good! The bread we buy has sunflower seeds and poppy seeds in it and I really like that.

Thanks for the recipe butterbobbin - I'll give it a try!

Yeah, I always appreciate feedback on the bread recipe! So far it's worked for everyone. I love stirring in other stuff. Seeds, rolled oats, what have you :-)

I love the recipes in this book:

http://www.amazon.com/Peter-Reinharts-Whole-Grain-Breads/dp/1580087590

They are not quick, you are looking at 24 hours at least. But they are easy and the results are fantastic.

Oh thanks for posting this. I just added this book to my library queue. I have one of his other bread books but just so overwhelmed by it. I'm really going to try and make something and really want whole grains bread.

Don't freak out at the list of ingredients, they are much simpler to put together than the recipe would suggest.

My biggest concern right now is finding flours. The grocery stores around me sell tons of AP flour and a few sell whole wheat. But other than that I'm looking online. I was shocked recently when one store started carrying soy flour!

I have Peter Reinhart's The Bread Baker's Apprentice but I don't use it as much as I should. My library has his whole grain breads book so maybe I'll check it out.

I second matwinser's suggestion. Peter Reinhart does get into the minutiae of bread science, which I love, but the actual work you'll do to produce an excellent loaf of bread isn't as daunting as it looks.

Until you can get the book and specialty flours you're looking for, how about a no-knead whole wheat bread? You have to start a day in advance, but you mix four ingredients and forget it until it's time to shape the loaves.
