And when I try to toast them they turn to crackers. Which would be OK if I wanted a cracker, but as a bread substitute, I just can't do it
I love oven baked potatoes (white or sweet) I get them at restaurants. My favorite is the sweet potatoes with a little bit of butter and cinnamon & brown sugar.

I get a thin bun at work. It is made by European Bakeries. It is a multigrain and has 90 cals. Everyone in my family absolutely loves them. I don't know that you can buy them other than in my situation where they are sold to restaurants. And you can toast them and they are even yummier! One of my fave snacks at night is a tomato & lettuce sandwich on a toasted thin bun.
