Yep it’s true! French Buns for German Sausage! Courtesy of Sturdiwheat.
The mountains near Anaconda are beautiful. Clear Creek running swiftly down the mountain within 25 feet of the cabin gave us a constant sound of nature and was enjoyed by all. Clear Creek is about the width of a large car, is spring fed from the lakes above it, was augmented with some snow melt, and was an incredible sight. The creek itself was the subject of dozens of photos – it’s hard to resist taking photos of it. Can you say “TOO MANY”? Will post some here later.
Today I want to tell you about the Sturdiwheat French Baguette Mix. Outstanding! On our first night in the cabin, we had Montana Beef Steak (yes, it must be upper case when speaking of Montana Steak), Minnesota wild rice, salad with lemon/olive oil dressing, and a SW French Baguette. Everything was a hit. Believe it when Sturdiwheat says it is easy! Wow!
Because the instructions said it could rise for up to 24 hours, I took just 1/3 of the risen dough and made a baguette for dinner. Left the remainder of the dough in the bowl, covered. The next day for lunch we had brats. I took 1/3 of the risen dough (by this time it had been rising for nearly 24 hours) and made some brat buns. How’s that for a German / French combination? YUMMY!
That afternoon the remaining risen dough was used for another baguette! We had FRESH BREAD for sure! That’s the way we love it.
The brat buns were really great. You can do anything with this Sturdiwheat mix. Don’t be afraid to try something new. It is a great dough, and well worth the experiment.
This recipe is so easy to make and you just might have all the ingredients in your kitchen already! Add your favorite hot sauce for a sweet and spicy flavor.

Dad may have lost the contest but he got bonus points for cuteness! Has anyone ever caught a sauger this small? For those of you that have never heard of a sauger, its very similar to a walleye. Needless to say all we heard all night was “My fish was so much bigger than Dad’s”. Hoping to have a Sturdiwheat fish fry this weekend if we can catch more of the big ones and less of the cute ones!

Hey Hot Cakes! That was great Minnesota weekend.
Getting all ready here for a journey by train from Minnesota to Montana. My older brother and I are hopping the rails to Anaconda, Montana to spend the week in the semi-wilderness with my younger brother at the cabin he and his family have been building. We will be reminiscing, enjoying the fresh air, reading on the front porch, and relaxing, relaxing, relaxing.
The mountain cabin isn’t quite finished (notice the upper window), so we will do a bit of carpentry to help get that on the way to completion. He and his wife are installing the kitchen before we arrive. YES!!! And doing some of the finishing work inside. Carpentry is not my strong suit, so maybe I can bring them a beer when the jobs are done.
My family loves food! So the menu is nearly complete. Soups (still a little cool on the mountain). Grilled dinners over wood fires. Lasagna. Brats (that’s sausage, not children). Hearty camp breakfasts. Sturdiwheat Buckwheat Pancakes. Sturdiwheat Cornbread. Sturdiwheat Shortcake. Sturdiwheat Original Pancakes. Sturdiwheat Hot Cereal. Sturdiwheat Whole Wheat Bread. Baguettes. And of course Sturdiwheat Coating Mix for the trout that will be jumping out of the mountain stream. We are really trying to make this as easy as possible so there is more time to just be. So thank you, Sturdiwheat! (But of course cooking is always a time to enjoy one another. The kitchen is the gathering place.)
In addition to the carpentry, we will spend some time hiking up the mountain to the lakes, eating (of course), enjoying the mountain views, and searching for those trout spots along the stream. (They will fish – I will apply the Sturdiwheat coating.)
Looking forward to the adventure and the great food. I am suddenly reminded of the names my Uncle had for us. (I capitalize “Uncle” because that is what his name was to us.) Chuck the Buck, Curt the Burt, and Gar the Bear. Now if that doesn’t make much sense to you, welcome to the family. (What on earth is a Burt? When I was a lad, I really didn’t question it.)
