Mushroom Bread

Dawna Granger


Okay, I LOVE bread!! Every kind of bread you can imagine, I love it. My favorite are rustic breads and unusual breads.

There is so much you can do with breads and as long as you keep in all in moderation, it can be enjoyed. Well, unless allergies are afloat.

I will sometimes add cheese to this recipe to jazz it up. I have even made it in round form and cut the top so that as it split, cheese could be nestled down inside towards the end.
