Bread recipes made with herbs, spices, and attitude.
ancho pepper, basil, black pepper, capers, caraway seeds, cayenne pepper, oh you get the idea…
Spinach Dip Bread
Was looking to make an herb bread – when a little package of Spinach Dip & Seasoning caught my eye. Turns out, it makes a great loaf. Yay, impulse decisions!
Green Onion Cheese Bread
Sauteed green onions, cheese (I used Gruyère, dill Havarti, and Gouda… cleaning out the cheese drawer), sweetened with a wee bit of applesauce.
Beer & Buckwheat Bread
The flavor of the softened buckwheat groats plays nicely with the hint of citrus and the soft suggestion of Parmesan.
Chipotle Cheddar Sourdough Bread
The taste of sourdough, cheddar, and chipotle are well-balanced in this bread – with a light but insistent heat in the back of the throat from the pepper.
Lemon Pepper Bread
As you bring a piece of this Lemon Pepper Bread to your mouth, you’ll smell a hint of citrus that offers a wonderful contrast to the mild heat of the cracked pepper that follows. Not quite sweet and sour, but close.
Celery Seed Herb Bread
I do so love an herb bread. Thought it was about time to honor the bastard step child of the seed family: celery seeds. In the allergen hall of fame, celery seeds are second only to peanuts. Bet you didn’t know that.
Horseradish & Mustard Rye Bread
This recipe is based off my Mom’s Beer Rye Bread from her Breads from Betsy’s Kitchen cookbook. In it, she recommends using a dark beer. I only had a Summer Honey Wheat beer, so I used that.
Jalapeño Cheddar Sandwich Bread
I wanted to use corn. But I didn’t. Fortunately, I don’t lug around my regrets. There is always a next time… and there most definitely will be. This bread has a sweet, mellow, warmth.
Roasted Garlic Asiago Cheese Bread
Bread is magic. Garlic is magic. Put them together and you have super powers. Add cheese and you are invincible as well. I don’t dabble in hyperbole. This is serious stuff.
Sweet Pepper Semolina Bread
A smooth, subtly sweet, suggestively savory loaf (suitable for sandwiches and soups).
