Oh Bread! Isn't it so yummy? I like to buy whole grain USDA organic bread. One of my favorite breads for french toast is from Rudi's Bakery called Ancient Grain Spelt bread. It has a fantastic light flavor that is perfect for french toast. I just tried their 100% Whole Wheat and now my husband and daughter likes it better for sandwiches because it is softer.
Rudi's Bakery, in Boulder, Colorado, makes lots of different breads, tortillas, and fabulous English muffins. I recently tried their 14 grain bread, which makes a great salmon salad sandwich. And my husband made ONO (that's good in Hawaiian) fish tacos with their spelt tortillas. They were large enough to hold everything and sturdy enough that nothing fell out.
Rudi's Bakery chooses ingredients that are simple, wholesome, and certified organic. They are made the old-fashioned way with ingredients you can pronounce. They never use any high fructose corn syrup, chemical preservatives, or artificial ingredients.
