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

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?

  1. I make bread so often yet it still is hit and miss at times. Made amazing kitke last week and then the next time I made it a few days later it didn’t rise or bake well. Last night I made a standard loaf and it was by far the best bread I had made in a long time. I find placing it in a plastic pack to rise works best and fastest so I recycle the packets we get when we by rolls. 🙂 xx

  2. I sometimes make no knead bread – it’s a speedy solution when you don’t have enough time for the full process. Which reminds me, while I am in Spain I need to hunt out some of my loaf tins!

  3. I don’t make bread very often, but this loaf looks like it has a great texture – just might inspire me:)

  4. Well, I just love the idea of peanut butter and cheese. And please…….no knead bread anytime of the week! Easy peasy. Just what I need! I pack my husbands lunch everyday and don’t want him to be disappointed (and it saves us a tons of $$$) and who wants to be disappointed at lunch? You still have a half of work day to go! Thanks for the inspiration!
