Bread and Butter Pickle Bread

Pat Duran


Well my first adventure did not work out too well- I had a bad packet of yeast. So today I tried again with success!
This is a great tasting bread and will be great for making sandwiches, or as toast, great for grilled cheese sandwiches, or pizza crust too! I think you will like this bread as much as my family- give it try - it's quick and easy...
Try this one too!
