“ Brand: Warburtons / Type: Bread „
We had a bit of a mini bbq today because the weather was so nice and I'd sat outside with the laptop and my sisters had spent most of the day playing in the garden. It was only a mini bbq because there wasn't hardly any gas left in the bbq so I had to cook the food pretty quick! lol I had some burgers in the freezer and they was the small Birds Eye ones, I know they shrink down a bit on the bbq so I wasn't bothered about getting big massive rolls and just used the ones we'd got in the bread bin. They are Warburtons Lunch Rolls, I used the white ones which come in a much lighter pack that the wholemeal rolls in the photo Dooyoo have got up. You get 6 average sized rolls for about £1.00. They look proper nice and have been dusted with flour so they look freshly baked, I was a bit surprised at the use by date because apparently these rolls will keep for 1 week if they haven't been opened and that seems MAD for bread! They feel soft when you touch them but you can tell the crust is going to have a bit of a chewy texture. The rolls are delish, we had them with our burgers obviously today but I've had them before with cold fillings. They haven't got a majorly strong bready flavour and that's a good thing because it means you can taste whatever you've got on the roll properly. The wholemeal ones have got a stronger flavour but you expect that with brown bread. I love how soft these rolls are, I thought they was a bit TOO soft for having them with hot burgers because they soaked the grease up a bit too much but they were still yummy. There are a couple left in the bread bin and I'm going to have one with cheese and onion before I go to bed because now I've started writing about the rolls I can't stop thinking about eating another one! lol Recommended...... not the best rolls for your burgers but they're proper tasty, and anyway they're made for cold fillings and the rolls are wicked for that!
Warburtons Lunch Rolls make a tasty and very handy snack. Although the lunch rolls pictured are wholemeal, I always buy the white ones. I started buying Warburtons Lunch Rolls, as a change to my kids constant diet of sandwiches for lunch. About a year ago I decided to make some changes because it was all getting too boring. I started to put pasta, Quorn sausage rolls and filled lunch rolls into their packed lunch box. Thankfully they were delighted with the change. Warburtons Lunch Rolls are always very fresh and you can see how appetising they look before you even open the packet. The packaging is see through and the rolls are always golden brown in colour, with a light dusting of flour on top. I am glad they only add a light dusting of flour, I have bought rolls in the past that are caked in the stuff. You would have thought that the lid had fallen off the flour shaker! I always find that the lunch rolls are very well risen. They are really soft and light in texture, which makes them a pleasure to eat. There is nothing enjoyable about eating a flat, heavy roll. I personally like my lunch rolls with a light spreading of margarine, some chopped chicken style Quorn, chopped tomato, lettuce and Heinz Salad Cream. This is definately my all time favourite. I also fill them with Quorn bacon, veggie burgers with a Dairy Lea cheese slice. I have other filling ideas too but I am getting seriously hungry here and need to stop thinking about them! I buy my Warburtons Lunch Rolls in Tesco, where a pack of 6 will cost you £1.10. This is quite expensive for rolls, but they are very good quality and unlike many others, they are not just a filler. One lunch roll contains 143 calories, which is fairly average for a roll this size. Warburtons Lunch Rolls contain soya and wheat gluten, so are unsuitable for anyone with these allergies. They are suitable for vegetarians. If you are looking for a good quality, tasty roll, it is well worth giving these lunch rolls a try.
I used to bake my own bread either by hand or using a bread machine, but I stopped when I realised I was putting on loads of weight due to this. I could never resist the smell of fresh bread baking and as soon as it was done I would end up wolfing down half a loaf with lashings of butter on it and immediately regretting my lack of self control! When I stopped baking my own bread I went out looking for a substitute for fresh, homemade bread and I have to say this wasn't easy to find. I tried many brands that tasted processed and manufactured, and even ended up trying one that I later realised was made with lard - not good for a vegetarian! But I finally ended up with Warburtons and I've tried a number of their different types of bread. My favourite are the seeded batch and also the lunch rolls. The particular lunch rolls I am reviewing here are the ones with grains and seeds. Although the picture with this category is for wholemeal rolls the description is for lunch rolls, and Warburton's make several varieties of lunch rolls. The grains and seeds variety contains 188 calories per roll and 16% of an adult's GDA of fiber - but be warned it also contains 12% of your GDA for salt, which is quite a lot. The rolls come in packs of 6 and freeze well for use in toasted sandwiches later. What I usually do is take 3 out of the pack and freeze them, then use the other 3 for sandwiches 3 days in a row (I find they last at least 3 days). Then I use the 3 frozen ones for veggie burgers. I simply take one out of the freezer about an hour before I'm going to use it to let it defrost a little, then splash a bit of water over it and pop it in the oven for about 10 minutes with the veggie burgers. By the time it comes out it is completely defrosted and slightly toasted on top and nice and warm all the way through. This bread makes great sandwiches. It is very nice and thick and substantial so holds the fillings really well without going soggy. I love the taste of this bread as it tastes so wholesome and the seeds and grains on top add a hint of flavour as well. This bread is quite chewy and you can really sink your teeth into it, so it is very satisfying to eat. It is not quite as good as homemade of course but it is very close, and at least I don't feel tempted to eat loads of it in one sitting. One sandwich is enough for me with this bread, plus some fruit, at lunchtime. These rolls aren't expensive at £1.10 for 6 at Tesco's. I highly recommend these for anyone who likes brown bread and is looking for a natural-tasting fairly healthy roll.
Trying to be healthy of late is really difficult for a gal like me! There are so many things that tempt me into wanting to eat 'rubbish' it's unreal and the one thing that really is an issue for me is bread. I love white bread and it has to be toastie Warburtons for me every time although eating about 8 slices a day was seriously bunging me up and bloating me out big time! So of late I've been trying to eat wholemeal stuff and of course my brand of choice is Warburtons because it's what I'm used to already! The Packaging.... Light cream and see through oblong packet with a clear window to the front of it so I can see the two rows of three batches/rolls through it. On the front of the packet I'm told these are 'New' Warburtons Wholemeal 6 Lunch Rolls which are 'delicious with soups or tasty sandwiches'. There is an at a glance nutritional chart on there as well as the best before date being stamped on. On the back of the packet I'm told a bit about the product and how to store them, contact details for Warburtons are given as is a full nutritional chart, ingredients and allergy advice is given and finally there is a bar-code on there. Nice robust packaging this is and it's informative enough to make an informed choice as to whether you want to eat them or not! A Bit About The Product According To the Back Of The Packet.... Suitable for home freezing. Suitable for Vegetarians. The Rolls... Very, very soft, dark brown in colour with a generous dusting of white flour to the top of each one, they're round in shape, reasonable thick but not huge in size. When you touch them they feel fresh and bouncy and have a lovely fresh aroma of basked bread to them. Slightly stodgy these are but that's not a complaint as they have bite to them and are actually moist and full of air at the same time making them rather filling. They are reasonably smooth in texture, well seasoned and go with any fillings you desire and are as promised great with soups etc as they don't fall apart. They have a slightly bitter taste to them (which is the malt that is added), are very well seasoned and blended and me....well I love the fresh baked and healthy feel of these so a big thumbs up from me! Allergy Advice... This product contains wheat gluten, barley and soya. This product is produced in a bakery which uses milk and sesame seeds. Nutritional Information Per Roll.... Calories: 157 Sugars: 1.9g Fat: 2.2g Saturates: 0.3g Salt: 0.68g Fibre 4.1g Price wise expect to pay around £1.10 for a pack of 6 in all good supermarkets etc.
