I took a chance on this recipe, using it to make 4 loaves of bread for an Italian-themed dinner the other night for a visiting university choir. The music director is himself Italian so I felt "on trial." I've got to say the loaves turned out beautifully! And the taste was superb. The music director praised the bread. I had to work hard to sneak a half-loaf home to my husband. This recipe goes into my winner file. :o)
Fantastic! I just ditched my previous favorite Italian loaf recipe for this one. For a little extra flavor, after brushing on the egg white, sprinkle some kosher salt over the top of the loaf.
ahhhh! there is nothing like homemade bread, and this was exceptional! Baking in general is a challenge for me, but this was wonderfully straight forward. Mine did not look like ~Nimz~' s beautiful loaf (I just tell people my loaves are rustic!), but the taste more than made up for my poor presentation! Thank You!
I just started making bread at home. My first rye and wheat loaves almost needed a chainsaw to get through, so I adjusted the recipe a bit, and the rye was much better the second time. I adjusted the bake time and temp for my oven. BUT with this one I did it according to the recipe, and gosh! It was so pretty coming out of that oven! My husband stood there for a while and asked if maybe he should try it before the company got here;) I'm a bread baker now!! Thank-You!
The kids loved it and that is saying a lot in our case;) Excellent recipe, great result. I made one with sea salt and rosemary on top which I added at the start of baking. Worked out great. I'll try a olive and thyme next. Thanks for this great recipe.
I have tried to make bread in the past, with so/so results. This bread, however, is the BEST I have ever had! It beats restaurant quality! I love it! Will make again and again!
This is by far the best bread recipe I have made so far. Loved it. Thank you for posting.
A 4.5! Excellent! This bread was SO easy to make. I have another bread recipe I use a lot, but it needs a lot of rising time. I didn't have the 6 hrs. total time to bake it and I didn't want to drive all the way into town (especially with gas prices what they!), but I wanted fresh bread for dinner. This was the first recipe that came up and I had all of the needed ingredients. My family LOVED it. I'll definitely make it again!
I had left over turkey from last night and wanted to make turkey salad, well the only way to eat it is on romaine on homemade bread. I was tired of the regular white bread recipes.. So when I saw this I tried it and I AM SO GLAD I DID! This was easy to do, put it together while doing homework, and the bread came out great! My first loaf looks a little funny, my rolling technique lol but it was really good would suggest to anyone! thank you for posting this Mystery Girl!
I made this bread today, it was my first time ever making homemade bread. Instead of putting it in a pan I baked it in a glass bowl so it was round like boule bread. After it cooled I cut the top off,took the bread out of the center & filled it with dill dip and took the remaining bread and put it around the bread to dip. Absoulutly delicious! Everyone raved how great it tasted with such little ingredients. I didn't use a bread mixer either, I did it all by hand. Feeling quite proud right now! Thanks for sharing such a great recipe ;)
