Tuscany Tomato Bread Mix

This bread makes the best sandwiches!

SKU: M13-1

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?

  • How good is this bread? Better than you expect. Read the reviews.  It's loaded with sun-dried tomatoes, which are specially ordered from the producers, not what you find in the store.
  • What did you do when you changed the formula? We made the bread lighter and removed almost all the garlic—you probably can't taste it now. We concentrated on the tomato flavor.
  • What does the tomato taste like, like fresh tomatoes? No, it's a dry fruit, so it has a more intense flavor. 
  • What else is in it? It's balanced with basil, other herbs, and spices
  • Will it work for morning toast? I've never thought of it as a morning toast. 
  • What about sandwiches? It's an incredible sandwich bread. For me, that's where it really shines.
  • What's your favorite sandwich? I like anything Kamie makes, but I could live on the grilled cheese sandwiches. They're incredible.  And try a club sandwich on tomato bread.
  • Can I freeze it? Yes. If you don't think you'll use it in a couple of days, freeze part of the loaf.
  • Is that French toast? It is. It's savory.  The gouda cheese drizzled over the French toast makes an outstanding lunch.  Experiment with it. You'll fall in love.


This is an exciting bread, it's not shy at all.  It's not hot, but it's loaded with flavors. It will make your life more exciting.

This tomato bread makes fabulous sandwiches. It's bold enough to load it with meats, spices, peppers, and cheeses. It's a magical bread. It's a great accompaniment to meals, especially Italian food.  

This is the bread that you'll want for wonderful savory French toast. It makes wonderful brunches, lunches, and dinners.

Kamie, in our test kitchen, is brilliant, a creative genius.  Her sandwiches are masterpieces.  Lessons from Kamie? She always sprinkles her sandwiches with salt and pepper, and she often drizzles a little vinaigrette over the fillings just to give them a little spark. Both make a difference.

The following link will take you to some of Kamie's work with tomato bread. You'll find:

  • Savory Tomato French Toast
  • Sandwiches including a BLT made on French toast (not French bread)
  • Tomato bread as an appetizer

She also has a gouda cheese sauce that she uses as a dipping sauce, a drizzle over savory French toast, and for nachos.
