Bread is the self-titled debut album by soft rock band Bread, released in 1969.

Bread peaked at #127 on Billboard's (North America) Pop Albums chart. A remake of "It Don't Matter to Me" charted in 1970 (see 1970 in music) after the release of Bread's second album. It peaked at #2 and #10 on Billboard's Adult Contemporary and Pop Singles charts, respectively.

The album's cover, with whimsical depictions of the band members photos on paper currency, refers to contemporary slang equating "bread" to money.
