Versatile! That’s Sturdiwheat Baguette Mix
Add some Rosemary and Voila!
This was a great success. Add a few tablespoons of chopped rosemary – This was with fresh rosemary – Don’t be shy about the spice. Let it sing! Add it at the same time the water is added. Crush the rosemary with a small bit of oil in a mortar and pestle if you have one to force the flavors. If using dry rosemary, be sure to crush the spice.
Let is rise for up to 24 hours. Punch down a couple of times during the rise. The long rise isn’t necessary, but the flavor and texture improve with the longer rise. Let the loaves rise for an hour or so after shaping the loaves. Put a pan of HOT water on the bottom shelf of the oven when preheating is started. This moisture is so important for getting that wonderful artisan crust.
Slit the loaves across the top with a serrated knife or a scissors just before putting the loaves in the oven. Also, spray the top well with water. Spray twice more during baking. This water also goes to giving you that beautiful crust.
Bake as directed on the package at 425 degrees – but bake for 30-35 minutes until the crust is a golden brown. A longer baking time is required because these loaves are thicker than the baguette loaves.
This bread turned out so beautifully. The texture was exquisite. The crust – Exceptional. Use this Baguette Mix in many ways. Test it out! Let us know what happens.
Enjoy this Rosemary Artisan Bread and the compliments you will be hearing! And be sure to visit Sturdiwheat for this and other great mixes.

Ah! Now isn’t that something that everyone loves?
Great French toast requires little. And most of us have made it successfully. It requires great bread like the Sturdiwheat baguette and a flavored custard. You must have great bread to make great French toast. If you haven’t tried the Sturdiwheat baguette mix, PLEASE do so. It is a great product. If you are planning ahead and if the bread is very fresh, slice diagonally (3/4 – 1 1/2 inch your choice) and let it air dry overnight. Make a custard – of your favorite flavor. (Try 1 cup half and half, 3 eggs, a bit of salt, 1/2 tsp each vanilla and orange extract. If you don’t have orange extract, substitute 1 T orange juice concentrate.) I love this combination of vanilla and orange. Remember the Dreamsicle? Creamsicle? Yep! There you have it. This will please your family and friends. Oooos and Ahhhhhs will be sung around the table. Dip each side of the Sturdiwheat slices into the custard for 30 seconds each side. Set aside and let rest for a few minutes.
At this point you may fry it as usual. But Hey! Who wants to be frying loads of French Toast when everyone is waiting. Bake it. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees – Butter a baking sheet. Put the slices on the baking sheet and Bake for 45 minutes or until it is browned to your liking. The toast will be puffy when you remove it from the oven, but will flatten shortly.
Make it extra special. Serve with your favorite creative accompaniments.
Oh yes – For a really easy morning, make the custard the night before.
Sturdiwheat – Helping make you the star in the kitchen.
Brunch, Lunch, or Dinner entree. Chicken, Mushroom, Seafood. Take your pick.
For these entrees, put a small amount of filling on a crêpe. Roll it or fold it. Place them in a baking dish with a small amount of sauce over the top. They are ready to warm for your entree. Again, Sturdiwheat has made the crêpes a breeze. And they are so good. For any recipe you find on the Internet, simply use the easy mix from Sturdiwheat for the crêpes part of the recipe.
For chicken recipes, make it simple by using a rotisserie chicken from the supermarket. For the seafood, make it easy by selecting cooked shrimp or crab (or both). Google found so many recipes. Search for your preferred ingredients. It only involves making a bit of sauce for the filling and the top and that’s it. Include your salad with a light vinaigrette or green vegetable like asparagus or broccoli and this is going to be a hit.
