Wonder Lite Bread

I have a loaf of wonder lite bread and need ideas on what i can do with it. Any suggestions? I'm open to anything. Also if you have recipes that would be great. Thanks.

Debbie, no offense, but my suggestion would be to throw it in the garbage. I think any of the Wonder products are pure junk, most of the nutrients are removed, and then they put a few in and call it enriched. But that's my opinion.......sorry I couldn't be more helpful......

Trim off the crusts from two slices, roll them out with a rolling pin and place some sliced Granny Smith apples and seasonings top with the secons slice and bake to make a turnover.

I used to enjoy Wonder Wheat. Anyway, you could toast it really nice in the oven, then run it through the food processor and make bread crumbs for later use.

TONS of stuff you can do with it! Don't toss it!

Check out this link and look at the box on the right, in the article, for Wonder Bread recipes. Rocky Mountain News - Denver and Colorado's reliable source for breaking news, sports and entertainment: Food

The first thing that came to my mind is what Uncle Bob said - bread crumbs. Maybe a casserole of french toast, there are some good recipes out there!

pb and j. doesn't that "belong" on squishy white bread?
Wine is the food that completes the meal.

That's right, ChefJune! Wonder Bread and plain American cheese also make the kind of toasted cheese sandwiches that kids love.

I was going to say "do anything but eat it" but on second thought, you can soak each slice in milk, wrap it up in approximately 1/4 pound of seasoned (salt, pepper, garlic powder, and diced onion) ground beef, shape into oval patties, fry, grill, or bake them, and pour mushroom gravy over them. This is commonly referred to as Salisbury steak. I serve mine with mashed potatoes and whole kernel corn or peas for a delicious, although carb heavy, Sunday dinner.

ETA: Now that I have mentioned it, I haven't made Salisbury steak in ages, so I think I'll make it this week-end, with enough left over for at least a couple of lunches during the week. THANKS FOR THE NUDGE!

Get an old air compressor, a large pipe just a bit narrower than the bread, and a quick release valve. Will make a fun air cannon.
