Pampered Chef Bread Tube Pan?

love2weedJanuary 21, 2009

I've decided to go with tea sandwiches for my baby shower on Sunday. I have a Pampered Chef Flower Bread Tube pan that I have never used. I would like to make some sandwiches using bread made in this pan. Has anyone had any experience with this pan and what recipe would work in it? I think I've never used it, because I'm afraid the bread will stick.

I have a pan, that is the box and never used somewhere..probably had it 10 years! atleast..
I remember that the easiest way to use it was a thawed loaf of that Rhodes dough.

A friend at work uses hers all the time for delicious cucumber open-faced sandwiches. She mixes some Ranch seasoning with cream cheese, chills it, spreads the cheese on the sliced flowers of the bread, then tops the cheese with very thin slices of peeled cucumber. I could eat the whole tray....

Here is a page that I copied from somewhere long ago. Can't give credit, I'm afraid. I used mine a lot when the kids were little, haven't used it for a while.

Use our exclusive Scalloped Bread Tube to make attractive scallop-shaped canap, breakfast breads, miniature sandwiches and desserts. Made of tinned steel for even heating, the top lid features a vent for steam release during baking.
How to Use
Wash prior to first use.
Use to bake packaged refrigerated bread dough or frozen bread dough that has been thawed. Bread tube is not recommended for use with brownie, quick bread or cake batters, cookie dough or gelatin mixtures.
Using a one pound loaf of frozen bread dough
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Lightly spray inside of bread tube and lids with nonstick cooking spray. Place lid (without vent hole) on bottom of bread tube.
Cut about 2 inches of dough from one end of loaf.
Place dough in bread tube. Place top lid (lid with vent hole and marked "TOP") on top of bread tube.
Immediately place bread tube upright on lower rack of oven. Bake 50-60 minutes, until ends are golden brown.
Remove bread from bread tube and place on cooling rack; cool completely, then slice.
NOTE: When using bread tube with softened ice cream, yogurt or sherbet mixtures, it may be necessary to line bottom lid with Parchment Paper to prevent leakage. Fold a 15-inch square sheet of Parchment Paper into fourths. Place between lid and bottom of bread tube; cap with top lid before freezing.
Other Creative Uses
Use as a form for creating frozen dessert treats. Fill bread tube with softened ice cream, frozen yogurt or sherbet; place lids on top and bottom and freeze 4-6 hours or overnight. To unmold, wrap a warm, damp kitchen towel around tube 1-2 minutes to loosen frozen mixture. Remove lids from bread tube; push contents out onto cutting board and cut into slices. (Do not store frozen food in bread tube for extended periods of time.)
Cut decorative shapes from rolled-out cookie dough, biscuit dough, pie crust or puff pastry.
Cut shapes from sliced bread, cheese or deli meats, then assemble to make miniature snack-size sandwiches.
Create crispy rice cereal and marshmallow treats. Spray bread tube with nonstick cooking spray. Fill with warm cereal mixture, pressing evenly to fill tube; place lids on top and bottom and cool completely. Remove lids from bread tube; push cereal mixture out onto cutting board and cut into slices. Decorate, if desired.
How to Clean
Hand wash; rinse and towel dry immediately.
Bread tube is not dishwasher-safe. Rusting will occur if bread tube is left to soak in water.

I have had these tubes since they first came out and have never used them because nowhere does it tell you exactly how much dough to use for the tubes.

Not sure if we're talking about the same thing, but I've got a set of three shaped pans (heart, star, scalloped shape). They're about 12" long or so.

I spray the lids and insides with Pam and fill them a little more than half full with dough. The original instructions say not to fill the star more than half though.

I haven't used them in a long time.....thanks for reminding me!
