Weird Food of the Month: Bread in a Can


Category :

This month's weird food is yet another food that should not belong in a can..... bread.
There is nothing better than a fresh loaf of bread. Especially the light fluffy centre and crispy crust. Nothing compares to a fresh slice or a fresh roll does it?

.... think again!

What would make you want to eat this? Sure the picture on the can doesn't look too bad, I mean I wouldn't even mind trying it based on the picture on the can. But it wasn't until I saw this picture that made me change my mind..

Kinda just looks like cake, but I'm not too sure. I wouldn't mind giving this one a taste, but one of the results was: "Is this more prison food?"
There was quite alot of good feedback, including "Once it's heated up, though, it's not bad at all. More like a really bland muffin than bread."

Would you try this one??


Mmmm there's nothing quite like a club sandwich made with 3 slices of freshly opened can-bread, chunks of gelatinous can-chicken, a few slices of tasty can-bacon (100% US bacon of course) and perhaps some tinned tomatoes. If only you could get lettuce and fried eggs in cans!

Oh Conor! That is hilarious!! I couldn't think of anything worse! I'm sure I could find canned lettuce and eggs, just give me time :P

Bread that tastes like muffin and cake? It is indeed.... weird! :p

It looks like dog food once out of the can!! Gross!

PS - I sense a theme going on with your 'weird food of the month' - they all come in cans!

Hi K,

Have you never seen a recipe for baking a quick bread in a can? I haven't done it, but I've seen the recipes: http://www.gather.com/viewArticle.action?articleId=281474977061042

It's nice for camping - which is how I originally heard about it (back when I actually camped :-)

Hi Kelly,
That's pretty interesting! When camping, anything goes! :P
