Bachelor Cooking: A loaf of bread from a can

If you grew up in the New England area, you saw this specialty item in your grocery store. You probably bought a few cans of it.

It is shelf-stable brown bread. In a can.

I am not kidding.

This is the same company that makes the tasty brick oven baked beans. B&M manufactures a shelf-stable brown bread (as well as a similar product packed with raisins) that can stay fresh in your pantry for up to two years.

And all you need to do is open both ends of the can and slide the loaf out of the tin.

You know, just like opening up a can of Ken-L-Ration. Ha.

Yep, there’s the bread. And don’t give me grief about how it still has the indentations from the can along its sides; you’re probably the same people who enjoy the canned Thanksgiving cranberry sauce that still looks like it was vacuum-packed inside its can.

Anyway … this brown bread is easy to slice, you can get 8-9 good thick slices out of it. Slice the bread. Place a couple of slices in your toaster. The remaining bread slices can move to plastic resealable bags and can stay in your fridge.

After the sliced brown bread pops out of the toaster, butter the slices and enjoy.

I haven’t spread the butter yet, so don’t give me grief on why the butter pats look enormous. By the way, you can substitute butter for margarine, it’s not like anyone would ever notice a difference in taste.

I’m just saying. This bread is very tasty, especially when toasted and buttered. I’m sure you could even slather a helping of B&M Baked Beans on top for a quick meal.

But yeah … it’s sold in a can. And I’m sure if you’re working on your doomsday preparation tactics, an extended shelf life is important.

A long shelf life is also important if you’re trying to stretch the food budget. So let’s definitely take that into consideration as well. 😀
