This is a bread mama made for us kids. I like it served with butter and mustard. It can be used with anything or just byself. My dad and I would have a midnight snack but adding pinto beans on it when it is sliced opened...yummy..i know, sounds awful...but in reality....delicious!!!!
Use a large mixing bowl for this recipe. Mix all the dry ingredients together. I do like to add the mushroom, olives, etc that i marked optional, it is up to you however, rather you do or not. I do as I enjoy a lot of flavor.
I use a large cast iron skillet and spray pam it on a medium high stove. Pour the mixture in the skillet after mixing it thoroughly.
You may need to pour slowly more oil around the pan as it is cooking. Turn stove down to medium low and cover. About 15 minutes later, turn the bread over in the skillet and cover pan again. Let it cook until the center is completly cooked through.
This can be served with various soups, and as side dish with main dishes. I like it byself as the main dish, adding butter, mustard and at times sautekraut...and the flavored leftover BEANS!!!! Can pour the beans over the bread and eat it that way too.
