Daring Bakers March Challenge: Dutch Crunch Bread

Sara and Erica of Baking JDs were our March 2012 Daring Baker hostesses! Sara & Erica challenged us to make Dutch Crunch bread, a delicious sandwich bread with a unique, crunchy topping. Sara and Erica also challenged us to create a one of a kind sandwich with our bread!

Thank you Sara and Erica for the challenge this month.

Below are the pictures of my creations:

I used a white bun recipe which was quite delicious on its own. The topping was interesting. I found it a little yeasty on the first day, but then did not indulge on a sandwich. The sandwich the next day was good, though the topping became crumbly. All in all, we all enjoyed the recipe, but I don't think it would be something I would make again, though I'm now considering trying the topping again, but made with sesame oil rather than vegetable oil. We'll see.

The sandwich was made with peppered ham, romaine, tomatoe and pepper jack cheese. I'm thinking it would have been even better on the fresh rolls, rather than waiting a day.
