...Give us this day our daily bread...Matthew 6:11...
What you will need:
- 2 Tbsp. instant yeast
- 3 cups warm water
- 3 Tbsp. olive oil
- 2 Tbsp. white sugar
- 1 Tbsp. salt
- 1 egg
- 8-9 cups all purpose flour
Mix yeast and warm water. Add oil, egg, sugar, and salt, mix well. Add flour till your dough is soft, yet not sticky. Mix Well, knead slightly. Divide dough four ways equally and roll out on floured or oiled surface. Roll up lengthwise; rolls should be about 1 foot long and 2-3" wide, or as you like. Slash four diagonal slashes across each loaf. Place on baking sheets, let rise. Bake at 350* until tops are lightly golden, or approx 20 or so minutes. I like to rub the tops with soft butter.
For Herb Garlic Butter:
- butter, softened
- garlic powder, or freshly squeezed garlic cloves
- Italian seasoning
- Parmesan cheese
- whatever you would like you add! :)
Mix ingredients together and serve with bread.
(Note: this is a favorite recipe of my family. If made right, the bread is so soft and yummy. :D We make it often. Hope your family enjoys it as well! ~Rachel )
