Basic Whole Wheat Bread: More than loaf bread
You can stretch your budget and your menu with the one basic bread recipe that we send out with every newsletter."How?" - you may ask. Simply look at the lump of dough differently.
The Basic "Fool Proof" Bread Recipe we send out second in our newsletter series can be shaped into:
~ Burger Buns
~ Hot Dog Buns
~ Hoagie Buns
~ Bread Sticks (filled and twisted or just plain, warm and toasty)
~ Bread Bowls for Chilli and Soups
~ and SO many more potentials....
Even once made they can become other things if not used up:
~ Croutons (any of the above)
~ Garlic Bread (best for the hot dog/hoagie buns)
~ Toasted Crackers (slice thin [if not split for burger or hot dog] and butter/toast)
~ Open Faced Cheese Bread (Top with mixed cheeses and broil) to go with soups
So even as simple as the ONE recipe may be. Don't get stuck with it ALWAYS just being a loaf of bread! Shape and use it in multiple ways!
