    Brandess's Note:

    This breads' chewy crust pairs well with a steaming mug of soup. The pretty color and robust flavor are a great pairing with chicken or turkey cold cuts or a summer tomato sandwich. I use this basic recipe in my bread machine using the dough cycle; following my bread machines instructions. I then bake it in the oven. I also omit the red pepper flakes and, at times, omit the Parmesan cheese and replace it with an additional 1/4 cup of flour. Be careful and add additional flour a little at a time depending on the humidity in your kitchen.

      Great bread Brandess! First off I used whole wheat flour so of course my results will be a bit different. That being said I did end up with a wonderful flavoursome loaf that accompanied Hearty Chicken and Vegetable Soup very well.. I made your recipe in a stand mixer and added an additional 1 cup of flour after step one. The rising time was longer due to the type of flour and the weather. I did use the crushed red pepper flakes and next time will add at least a teaspoon. I also brushed the outside with cold water before and during cooking to get a lovely crisp crust. Thank you for the recipe.
