Your choice of the bread in shapes associated with Osiris:
Bennu bird. As a bennu bird, Osiris led spirits through underworld dangers.
Djed (by New Kingdom) - either a pillar from a tamarisk tree, or Osiris' backbone
Mummified god on throne wearing atef crown, dyed green
Atef crown - Tall Hedjet crown of Upper Egypt with curly red ostrich feathers on either side of the crown. Maat wears a single ostrich feather. The Hedjet (no feathers) was used in predynastic times.
Tamarisk tree - Osiris' coffin ends up in Byblos and a tamarisk tree (shrub or small tree), grows over it. The tree is cut down and turned into a pillar (the died), and Isis gets the pillar and extracts Osiris' coffin.
