There are few things more satisfying than slicing into a big loaf of fresh, crusty bread. However, if the loaf is bigger than your bread knife, getting a uniform slice can be a slight challenge, especially when you hit that bottom crust. Luckily, there is a very easy solution: just flip the loaf on its side.
