I tend to like bread - gladly spend an extra buck a week to get the better stuff. And it goes beyond that, when i first tasted Schlotzky's Deli bread, i decided those kids knew what they're doing so promptly started adding something, buying another one, adding something else - that's not it - finally managed to get that taste pretty close with a sorta dill raised pancake. So now another challenge came along - those gas stations with the deli you know? Well, they have a rolled sandwich, and they roll it in what looks like a tortilla maybe made with corn meal. It's already cooked, handles well and stays together - and tastes great :) If i wanted to make one like it - where should i start?

DC, here's a couple to get you started, if this ain't it. Let me know and I'll zap off the rest of our recipe sites.

Hi. I am wondering if the rolled sandwich you are referring to is a gyro. It is made with pita bread. It is a yeast bread that is made by rolling the dough thin and cooking it in a very hot oven. the dough puffs up then goes flat again as it cools. You can either fill the hollow with sandwich stuff, or roll the ingredients up in the bread. I got my recipe from a greek woman I used to babysit for. If you are interested, I would be glad to share it with you.

I bake bread, too. I like making plain white, but I use those tiny loaf pans. That way I can experiment and play around. I use a Cuisineart to prepare the dough. I used to use a bread maker, but that took too long and wasn't too "hands on".

Though not a baker,corn flour tortillas were the original"bread" staple of Mexico from what I understand.The white wheat flour tortilla came later when wheat/wheat flour became available.If I recall right,the corn tortilla is pretty basic,cornmeal/flour,salt,water then fried on an iron griddle.The thicker the batter,the thicker the tortilla,just like a pancake.You could add finely minced onion,garlic,peppers etc.Also I believe there are packaged mixes in the"Mexican food" section of the grocery store or with the bread mixes.

I don't know about the bread question but you said something that struck me. "those gas stations with a deli". Around here it's fried chicken. We don't have a chicken place, no KFC,Churches chicken or Popeyes Chicken. There is something wrong when the best fried chicken in town is at a GAS STATION. 'specially here in the south, Good luck with the bread quest tho.
