Dave's Killer Bread Review and Recipes

Disclaimer: I received this product free from the sponsor of the Moms Meet program, May Media Group LLC, who received it directly from the manufacturer. As a Moms Meet blogger, I agreed to use this product and post my opinion on my blog. My opinions do not reflect the opinions of May Media Group LLC or the manufacturer of this product.

I just love bread, rolls, the seedier, the better. (and the healthier the better of course!) But, I eat it plain, with butter, with peanut butter, with salad, soup, in soup, with spaghetti, I mean, it's an everyday staple at our house and it is something I have been wishing to find a better option for. 
I received a box of 2 loaves of, Dave's Killer Bread and not only is the packaging fun, the little book I received with them is super cool! I was also surprised that I could actually smell the bread as soon as I opened the box, yes, through the plastic! I live in Pennsylvania so, it came pretty far and still smelled fresh! 

We go through loaves and loaves of bread every week at our house and I really, really wish for healthier options for all of us. Unfortunately, there aren't any retailers who sell, Dave's Killer Bread, near us, however, they do offer options to buy online. (They are a little pricier for us East Coasters but, after trying this bread, I think it's an option we will be using at least once a month.)
Dave's Killer Bread mentions that they are, "The Best Bread in the Universe", I have to agree 110% with this statement. I don't know if I have ever eaten such a hearty, seedy, delicious, low calorie or even high calorie bread such as this before. (I can even taste it while I type this and I miss it so very much!)
My husband is even in love with this bread and he isn't often one who goes head over heels for anything lol! But, he used up most of the bread for his fancy fried egg sandwiches and regular, old, hard boiled egg sandwiches. He insists it is the ONLY bread to be used for such a #Killereggsandwich. 

I believe this is just a simple recipe but I told him I would share it. (He won't give me his fried egg sandwich recipe until I order more so, I will share hopefully very soon!)
He uses mayonnaise and slices up a couple hard boiled eggs and places them between the 2 pieces of, Dave's Killer Bread, and VOILA!
I hard boil my eggs like this:
I put the room temperature eggs in a large pot, fill with water and set on the stove. 
I usually set between medium and high and wait for the water to come to a rolling boil.. 
I set the timer for 10 minutes and let it boil away.
When 10 minutes is up, I turn the burner off but allow the pot of water and eggs to sit for an additional 7 to 10 minutes.
After the additional sitting time, I place the pot in the sink and run cold water over the eggs until they are nice and cold.
This has always been the best way for me to achieve the best, most peelable, perfect yolk, eggs. 

The kids took a liking to it super quick, peanut butter tastes divine on Dave's Killer Bread. So does peanut butter and marshmellow cream, (my personal favorite!). We also made some amazingly scrumptious, #Killerturkeybaconclubs that seriously topped any turkey bacon clubs I ever tried and yes, I try every diner's turkey bacon club, anywhere we go. 

I really love this bread for home made croutons! I didn't have to add anything but, salt and pepper and olive oil of course!
They keep very well and they don't require a lot of preparation or anything and they taste amazing!!
I just cut up the heels of the bread and a few slices of each type that we received to do our review and threw in a baking dish.

I set the oven at 250 degrees and just checked every 10 minutes or so, stirred them up and added salt and pepper a little at a time until they were crispy and ready for salad!
Oh, I almost forgot, Dave's Killer Bread is not only tasty and healthy and low calorie, it is all organic and non GMO. (They are verified through The Non GMO Project and even though I prefer to believe the brands themselves rather then the Non GMO Project and their "labels", I have to throw that in there because I know there are fans of the Non GMO Project.) I must also mention that I would feel perfectly safe and fine purchasing and consuming, Dave's Killer Bread without that label. Because, I trust them as a brand and I don't put a lot of faith into a third party getting between me and the brand themselves. 
Now, onto some real fascinating  facts about, Dave's Killer Bread as a company. They believe in, "Second Chances" and they don't just say this, they believe it and they are all action, not just talk. 
As a matter of fact, 30% of their employees are ex felons, including, Dave himself.  You can read more about their story, here. 

This is something that is also important to me, even if I am not an ex felon, I firmly believe that they should be given second chances too. This wonderful gesture and part of Dave's Killer Bread's history, is a very important reason as to why I will trust this brand and purchase their products. (and Dave, if you are reading this, please come to PA! I would be purchasing much more often then our once a month "treat" for ourselves!!)

You can learn more about their company in this video:

 I don't know what there is NOT to love about this product or company. They even have clever names for their bread, like, Blues Bread, The Good Seed, Rockin Rye and Spelt. (Those are just a few of my favorites!)
