Has anybody else tried this bread? It looks like a sliced brown pan but it has a very different texture and flavour to your ordinary dull wholemeal loaf.

Toasted, with a decent dollop of butter spread over it and made into a sandwich with a simple fried egg in the middle - yummmmmm. It has become our regular daily brunch since Christmas. Equally great as a sandwich with our grilled home cured bacon or a free range pork sausage.

It costs about £1.20 (isn't all bread expensive these days?) and we would not want it every day but it is a real treat, certainly with fry-ups.

I presume you've bought this in Waitrose ....?

I haven't heard of it, but I do know that linseed is very good for you with such properties as antiseptic; gentle laxative; anti-inflammatory; expectorant; etc

I made some wholemeal pittabreads today - perhaps next time I'll add some linseed, too...... yes, maybe I will.

LOL Laugh

Hmmmmmmm - am I THAT transparent?

I believe it is widely available but there is such a variety of bread on display on supermarket shelves these days that any bright spark could be forgiven for not having spotted the Burgen. Whistle

I may never recover from this.

Having said that, I guess the menopause was never as much fun before Burgen bread was invented Heart Big_Laugh

Oh Danny, I absolutely love this bread.  The only place I could get it was in a little Spar shop about 15 miles from here. Then it closed down for a while.  It has opened again under new management so I don't know if they have it.  I feel a trip to Tighnabruaich coming on.  It is such a treat.  I want some now!

There are other varieties-the sunflower seed one is good too and as for the cranberry, oddly NOT available at Waitrose but at our corner shop....wonderful. Really good ready sliced bread- how unsuual is that? Bizarrely every other bread was sold at at Waitrose last week, I'm quite pleased Burgen is still a secret  delight so there is always some left for us, but then, some people are really taken aback by bread with seeds in it, let alone fruit AND seeds! Toasted it is bliss...

I love bread with seeds in it, especially toasted.  I do some in the breadmaker and just put lots of mixed seeds in.

Oh, Danast, if it is that good, then I must try it.

TA - I thought the menopause went on forever - or is it me? Or does it just feel like it? Smile Smile

Yep, eventually it does stop...sort of....you'll know when, as you will develop a Dr Crippen moustache. Or is that just me?
