From your description it sounds like you used dowels/loose tenons to attach the breadboard ends and nothing else. If that is correct then there is going to be issues keeping the joint secure and tight.

Or am I misunderstanding and you did a true tongue and groove breadboard such as shown in this article from Wood Magazine?

That’s the type of construction Dale is talking about with the pegs and elongated holes. The tongue and mortise support the weight and help keep the top flat, while the pegs hold the breadboard end securely up against the top.
