New England Soup and Sandwich Bread Mix

Make this with your bread machine, stand-type mixer, or by hand.

SKU: M107-1

Can I use this mix in my 1 pound capacity or 1.5 pound capacity bread machine?

We have designed our mixes specifically for 2 lb. capacity machines. However, you may still find success with 1.5 lb. capacity machines. You may expect to see the top of the loaf touch the lid of the machine towards the end of the baking cycle. This may lead to imperfect baking in that one spot on the loaf. The rest of the loaf should be fine. For 1 lb. bread machines, we recommend only running the bread on the dough cycle and then transfer the dough to a pan for baking in a conventional oven. See packaging for more info.

Why do the directions ask me to use a thermometer?

Yeast is very sensitive to heat and other environmental factors. We have tested and designed our mixes to find the sweet spot for yeast activity to get the best rise. Even just a few degrees off on water temperature can make a big impact on the quality of your bread. Measuring the temperature of your water accurately is the best way to ensure consistently successful bread baking.

I followed the directions exactly and I see had a problem with my bread? What can I do?

Sometimes bread issues happen. We are happy to help. Send us a picture of your bread and a picture of the back packaging of your bread mix to our customer support email at Include as much detail as possible about your baking process and bread machine model so we can troubleshoot the cause of the issue.

Should I adjust my mix for high altitudes?

We don't recommend making any changes to the mix for high altitudes. We have tested our mixes in a variety of locations and have fine tuned each mix to be the best product possible.

I don't have a bread machine or a stand-type mixer. Can I still make this bread in my oven?

    This wholesome bread is made with eight hearty grains.

    It gets cold in New England. So it's not surprising that New Englanders make breads with substance.This is almost white bread, a moist bread, that is made with just enough whole grains to make a delightful bread.

    This is a great heritage bread that your family will enjoy, a wholesome bread without preservatives.

    Grains can be used in breads in four forms:

    • As flours--though only wheat flour has the proteins to form gluten, which gives bread its chewy, elastic texture.
    • As rolled grains. Rolled oats and other rolled grains meld into the bread but make the bread chewy and moist.
    • As finely chopped grains. Finely chopped grains may be the consistency of coarse salt but cook soft and nearly unnoticeable. They give breads a chewy, hearty texture with occasional grains.
    • As coarsely chopped grains. Coarsely chopped grains are distinct, chewy nuggets in the bread. Often, they are presoaked to make them softer. In a bread machine, with a three-hour cycle, the grains are softened.

    The grains in this bread are finely chopped. They bake soft and chewy, with a hardy and wholesome texture, yet the bread is still soft and moist. The bread is nearly white so the kids will accept it as one of their favorites.

    I have enjoyed the bread mixes purchased from Prepared Pantry. When you solicit feedback or ask for a rating of a product you must realize a response isn't a realistic request after only a few days after receiving an order. Most of the time a mix isn't used immediately after it's shipped, sometimes not for several weeks. I know an evaluation of a product is an important part of quality control but I doubt if most customers are prepared to evaluate all your bread mix products a few days after being received. Just an opinion. Thanks for a excellent product.
