Now THAT’s a lunch!

March 7, 2011 —

Can anything be more satisfying than making your own bread and mayo that does not contain high fructose corn syrup? I think not!

This is my go-to bread recipe, but I cut the recipe in half, didn’t use water for the egg white wash, used the Kitchen Aid stand mixer to mix and knead and only used my hand to shape out 4 small loaves. No bread maker, just standard oven. Egg white is used to make the bread shiny and darker but is not necessary, it doesn’t change the flavor much. I used organic unbleached flour and added two heaping tablespoons of milled flax seeds for fiber content.

I don’t think it’s totally healthy considering the wad of mayo I like to eat but at least I got my fiber in!
