No Knead Sandwich Bread | Overnight Proving

This no knead sandwich bread proves in the fridge overnight and is great for sandwich making for lunches. Perfect for for busy moms.

Are you a busy mom with no time on your hands and no idea what to pack your children for school lunch? Even though I am not that mom, I am a wife with a husband who eats lunch at work. Finding different things to pack for lunch can take up quite a bit of time, and that of course does not leave time for kneading bread dough. In my opinion, home made bread is the only bread to eat, unless you buy artisan bread from a bakery. Mass produced loaves just do not make it into our lunch boxes. Bread can be accompanied by so many toppings and here are a few for inspiration:

  • peanut butter and cheese
  • chicken with mayonnaise and green beans
  • tinned tuna with mayonnaise and corn
  • hummus and a crunchy vegetable such as radishes
  • avocado and feta
  • cream cheese and cucumber
No Knead Sandwich Bread

This no knead sandwich bread is not a quick solution to sandwich making but it is a hassle free solution. The dough gets left in the fridge overnight and needs time to come up to room temperature before baking. The time it takes will of course be weather dependant. But you can do the first bit on night one, and the second bit on night two and then start all over again before the loaf runs out so that you always have fresh bread in your bread box.

Do you make lunch box lunches?
