Why I Love This Recipe
This is the kind of recipe that is perfect for breakfast the day after bonding. The soft warm bread is easy to chew for potentially sore gums/teeth and won't leave you in fear of losing brackets as they set fully for the next day or so.
* It is important to stick to soft foods or liquids for the first days following a first bonding to ensure that brackets have unburdened time to fully cure.
