The different bread images used to illustrate different varieties should have already gave you a good idea of what kind of bread you can make. Now you can mix and/or use another type of bread to make a completely new recipe altogether. So, to try out different experiments with the various bread types, go ahead and play around with your imagination. Try experimenting with different ingredients and breads until you get it right.

Breads that are mostly made from flour, such as white bread, are technically divided into several sub-types, including: whole wheat bread, rye bread, bagels, and wheat tortillas. Most people prefer whole wheat bread as the best option for breakfast, whereas others like to have some rye bread for sandwiches or oatmeal for breakfast. Some people would also prefer to have brown bread or enriched wheat bread for dinner instead of white bread.

A more experimental bread type would be the rye or spelt bread, which is known in the Northern part of Germany (where the bread is originally from), and is very thick and rich in flavor. Breads made from this bread type are usually very thick and rich in taste. One added aspect of rye or spelt bread is that they tend to stay cool to touch, even when baked, unlike whole wheat breads that keep getting warm due to their nature.

There are many recipes and cookbooks on different types of breads and recipes. Try experimenting with different types of ingredients. For instance, you can add different types of herbs, dried fruit, nuts, raisins or spices to give it a unique taste. Try using different types of flour. Flour is the most basic ingredient, but also has the ability to give dough a firm, consistent texture and therefore good results when making breads. You will be amazed at the differences in the quality of breads depending on the ingredients you use.

If you are wondering what bread type to make when making a sandwich, then you need to know about fillings. Filling is the inside part of a bread or sandwich and is what gives it taste and a nice texture. Typical fillings include cheese, meats, vegetables and spreads. Fillings can make your sandwich taste better if used carefully. Be careful about overstuffing your sandwich or you will regret it as the filling will get wasted.

If you are looking for bread type for muffins, you should consider quick breads or French breads. As the name implies, quick breads are thinner than normal breads, and have less filling. The filling is limited to a few drops of liquid, such as oil or vinegar. Quick breads are usually savored with fruit, nuts or other fillings. For best results, experiment with different fillings to create new combinations.
