One of our favorite meals to have right after baking 'The Best Bread in the World' is grilled cheese sandwiches with tomato soup.
The Best Grilled Cheese Sandwich in the World
two slices of 'The Best Bread in the World' (recipe below)
some shredded cheddar cheese
a slice of cheddar cheese
Spread butter on one side of each slice of bread. With the buttered sides of the bread on the outside place the slice of cheddar cheese in between the two slices of bread. Place the cheese sandwich on a grill or frying pan and turn the stove on to medium heat. Then put a small handful of shredded cheddar cheese on the grill or frying pan with the cheese sandwich. The shredded cheddar cheese with start to cook, you will want to move the sandwich around to let the shredded cheese attach to the bread. The shredded cheese adds a crispy, tasty texture to the grilled sandwich. Enjoy!
The Best Bread in the World
2 1/3 c. boiling water
1 c. oatmeal (uncooked)
1/3 c. warm water
2 tbsp. yeast
little bit of sugar
1 tsp. salt
1/2 c. honey
2 tbsp. butter (soft)
5-6 c. mixed flour (whole wheat, white wheat or unbleached)
Pour boiling water over oats and let stand until soft. Soak yeast
in warm water. Add a little sugar to yeast and water. Add butter,
salt and honey. Gradually add flour, until it pulls away from the
bowl. Cover and let rise 1/2 hour. Shape dough. Let rise 1/2
hour. Bake 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes. Brush tops with butter
I usually cover the dough with a damp cloth and where it says to shape the dough in the instructions, is where I shape and place them into the bread pans. I do not ever get up to baking the bread for 35- 40 minutes. My bread is usually done around 30 minutes so you might want to watch your bread for the first time to see how long it takes to cook in your oven.

Delicious moist bread ready to eat.
In our family we find this bread phenomenal for a slice of peanut butter and jam toast. A taste to die for that you will be coming back for more.
I really like to use Trader Joes Crunchy Unsalted Peanut Butter with Polaner All Fruit Spread which is sweetened only with fruit and fruit juice. It also tastes great with a big glass of milk.
