I love sandwiches, but the perfect sandwich bread has always escaped me. For years, I’d try recipes that promised amazing sandwich bread, but every time, something would go wrong. The bread would crumble when sliced, making the slices unusable for BLTs and PB&Js. Or the bread would have too much flavor, so the deli meat, cheese, and other toppings would have to compete with the bread for my attention. Or worse yet, the bread would have no flavor at all, and my sandwich would taste like I had made it with two pieces of cardboard.
But today I am pleased to share with you the ultimate sourdough sandwich bread.
