Sausage Bread

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A couple of pieces of toasted sausage bread spread with a goat cheese mixed with Italian herbs served with an antipasto salad is my idea of a great summer lunch or supper.

This is a recipe that I developed years ago.

Ingredients
1 #  Italian sausage (sweet to hot)
3/4 c.  chopped red pepper
1 c. shredded mozzarella cheese
5½ c. flour (plus or minus)
2 pkgs.    dry yeast
2 tbsp. sugar
2  eggs (beaten)
1½ tsp. salt
¼ c.  soft margarine
1¼ c.  warm water

Directions:
Brown sausage (remove casing from sausage) and pepper.

Combine warm water, yeast, sugar, salt, margarine, 1 egg and 2 c. flour. Beat until smooth.  Add 1 c. flour or enough flour to make a thick batter.  Add enough additional flour to make a soft dough.  Turn out onto lightly floured board; knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes.  Place in a greased bowl, turning to grease top.  Cover; let rise in warm place free from draft, until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.

Punch dough down; turn out onto lightly floured board and divide into 3 pieces.  Roll each into rectangular strip about ¼ inch thick.

Stir cheese into sausage mix; spoon onto rectangular piece.  Roll (long way) and pinch long edges for seal.  Repeat with 2 other divisions. Place on greased baking sheet; cover. Let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes.

Beat remaining egg; brush on loaves.  Bake at 400° F. about 25 minutes.  Serve warm.  Refrigerate leftovers; reheat to serve.

Herb Garlic Baguettes

You can call me a bread lover—I adore freshly baked bread straight from the oven. Yesterday I was meandering through some of my old recipe books when the recipe for “Herb Garlic Baguettes” from a KitchenAid mixer recipe book caught my eye.

Ingredients:
1 pkg active dry yeast
1 tsp. sugar
1 c. water
3-1/4 to 3=1/2 c. flour
1 tsp. dried basil
1/2 tsp. dried oregano
1/2 tsp. thyme
1 tsp. salt

Very nice and tasty with all alone, but even better with a bit of pesto and goat cheese.
