I found this recipe in the book: Rustic European Bread. Won't believe how wonderful this bread will taste. You will be a champ on St. Patrick's.

  1. Process all ingredients in your bread machine set on the dough cycle.
  2. Remove from bread machine, punch down, cover and let rest for 15 minutes.
  3. Prepare a baking sheet (I cover it with parchment paper). Punch the dough down, and shape it into an 8-inch circle, slightly flattened. Cover with wax paper, and let rise in a warm place for 1 hour.
  4. Preheat oven to 375°F Slash the top of the dough with a large X. Bake for 15 minutes, then reduce the temperature to 350 and continue to bake for 15 more minutes.
  5. Don't forget leftovers, if any, are great for sandwiches.
