    Ooooooo what a good idea. Like yours, my store isn't staffed on the fresh bread section. I have to wander round the store to find someone, and often there are only the check out staff visible, and they are too busy.

    I believe some people have asked their local store to order extra of the dough then collect it uncooked on delivery day to take home and freeze. Might be worth asking.

    Have to say I do find these a good bread fix, and don't raise BG by any great degree, but for me they have to be really fresh and I don't really like them toasted. They seem a bit more dense and cakey when over a couple of days old or toasted.
    We're all different I suppose. :)
    My local Lidl gets low but I manage to get a couple most times, so haven't gone the freezing route.

    I've not yet tried them toasted, usually have them slightly warm with lots of butter. Try them after a 15-20 second blast in the microwave, allow to cool a little before slathering liberally with Kerrygold. Oooh, heeeeeaven! :joyful:
    I sometimes do this even on the day of purchase.

    I freeze any I get as soon as I get them home, and use them as soon as defrosted. That ensures freshness as I do not like them even next day if left out.

    I slice mine in half as soon as I get home, then freeze them. Then toast them straight from the freezer.

    It's easier if you slice them before freezing. When I want to use one I defrost in microwave, then toast under grill.

    Great tip. I've done that now and removed my first half to toast today. Worked great.

    My local Lidl has also discontinued the high protein roll. They have replaced it with a new Granary Roll.

    Last time there was a scare about a shortage of Lidl HP Rolls I decided to make my own. I haven't needed to buy any Lidl rolls for about 5 months.

    Oh no, I hope that's not an indication that Lidl intends eventually to discontinue selling them in all their shops. They have introduced a new GI* roll, I think it is, but they are very high carb, so not for me. Thankfully, since I posted my original "complaint" I found another Lidl where I am still able to get my 'fix' (for now at least).



    edit: I think this is the granary roll, not sure; would need to check.

    I do hope this is not so, our new one opens next week and is only a short walk away.

    Perhaps you could let us know what's what, once they're all settled in. :nailbiting:

    I bought 20 last visit, but if they are to be discontinued I had better go again tomorrow and buy as many as I can.

    Anyone know the carb content of the new granary roll?

    48g per roll.
    Edit correction: It is my bad to call it Granary Roll. It is in fact called Low GI roll
