A Great Bread for soups or stews

Stormy Stewart


The other day I was trying to make English muffin bread when I found part way in that I only had 1/2 the required flour. This bread is a result of that.

Everyone who has had it toasted swears it tastes like beef gravy on french bread. Surprise no french bread or beef gravy in the recipe.

We then tried it toasted with Roast beef and mash potatoes, Heaven. Would be great as a hot roast beef sandwitch or toasted with a hearty stew.

Bread is best when toasted and buttered. It is a little spicy and a unique dense bread with the crunch of english muffin bread.
