White bread or Whole Grain Bread? That is the question.
You know as well as I do that as much as whole grain bread is rather tasty and considered the healthier option, white bread will always taste better.  Admit it!
I can’t be a hypocrite and act like I’ve been loyal to my white bead love, because I haven’t.
Being the typical carb-obsessed female that I am, I have replaced my beloved white bread for whole grains although I have to concede that many of my favored sandwiches just aren’t the same without white bread.

My family has a serious devotion to sandwiches.

My 3 year old daughter and my husband are both adamant when it comes to their white bread.  They prefer it and I have absolutely no problem with that.  Although I have tried to get them on board the whole grain train, yes I have tried, but always a no-show.

I’ve tried to fool them by toasting the whole grain or making a panini out of it with the ingredients — didn’t work.  They have this special “gift” for pinpointing whether or not they are having white bread.

Dempsters happens to be our go-to bread because of it’s texture and taste and ability to satisfy my picky-eater’s taste buds.
I’ve tried other bread, but they spoil quickly and don’t really keep their texture. Dempsters has never done that for me before a loaf is done.

Just yesterday for dinner, we had sandwiches! This sandwich I usually make with strictly white bread because it does not taste the same with any other kind.
I made this grilled sandwich with Pepper Jack, Shredded Beef, Tomato, Onion, Cilantro & Serrano Peppers. Yummy!  Extremely Filling and my family loved it.  There’s so many great recipes you can make with bread and who doesn’t love a good sandwich?

According to a recent survey commissioned by Dempsters®, over half of Canadians agree certain recipes are yummier when made with sliced white bread.  What’s to like about sliced white bread?  The poll reveals that 72% love it for its freshness and soft texture.  Most Importantly, a good majority feel it is irreplaceable as an ingredient in preparing some of their most beloved comfort foods!

Egg Salad sandwiches are an absolute favourite in my home.

Here is a great recipe to try for your little Easter bunnies this Easter:

On Easter, a confetti-toned salad is the perfect way to delight hungry kids and use up extra eggs. (Plus it’s no less delicious than the ordinary kind!)

1. Place the chopped eggs, scallions, mayonnaise, mustard, paprika, salt, and pepper in a small bowl and mix well.
2. Adjust the seasonings to your preference.
Cover and refrigerate for several hours to allow the flavor to develop.

  1. Classic PB&J for the little ones and turkey, bacon, lettuce and tomato! Also a big fan of chicken and egg sandwiches too – can’t wait to try those Easter egg salad sandwiches!

  2. Cheddar cheese, mayo, cucumbers and sweet onion with a bit of lettuce on fresh white bread is the best. I’m like you, will eat other breads but white is my favorite.

  3. My favorite sandwich which is excellent on Dempster’s white has 2 b peanut butter & strawberry jam , yes i’m still a kid at heart lol

  4. Egg salad, hands down is my favourite sandwich. I love it best on fresh, soft, white bread, but it is still really good on the Dempster’s Whole Wheat bread. It’s the only whole wheat bread I’ve tried that has such a soft texture.
    I think I have to go boil some eggs now!!!

  5. My husband will only eat Dempsters. Now that we have tried their bagels I can’t keep them in the house very long & they’re gone! Delicious & the best there is!

  6. My favourite sandwich is the beefybello sandwich made with yummy fresh portabello mushrooms and swiss cheese and lots of other goodies. Its so yummy. Our kids love it and served with a fresh garden salad or fries makes a good meal too!!

  7. Dempsters is the only bread that I buy. It lasts a long time and stays fresh. It saves money and makes the best sandwiches. Chicken Salad or Grilled Cheese are my favorites =)

  8. Great idea!
    My favourite white bread sandwich? Too numerous – club house, toasted western, BLT, chicken salad…

  9. My favourite white bread sandwich is swiss cheese, white meat turkey and cucumber.
