Whoever buys bread from Sam’s, would appreciate this recipe. Because there we HAVE to pick two big loafs for bread. I try not to buy them there, but you know how sometimes you think you can finish it off and by the time you are onto your second one, you are literally pushing it close to the expire date.. So instead of wasting that nutritious multigrain bread, I make this upkari so I get my family to finish it up. J
