Natural and Healthy!
Sturdiwheat Focaccia / Snack Bread Mix is a wonderfully surprising and pleasant change from what we often consider Focaccia. It is filled with healthy grains and steps up a BLT and other sandwiches beautifully. It has a great robust earthy flavor from the grains and you can truly taste this bread – whether it is on a delicate veggie sandwich on a mighty sandwich with intense meaty and flavorful fillings.
As an appetizer bread with cheeses it is a special treat for your guests – or even just for you and yours while waiting for dinner in the evening – or for a snack whenever!
For this baking session I added fresh rosemary to the top. As you can see, it looks delicious and tastes equally as nice! Use the package instructions – just be sure you let it rise in the pan before baking. About an hour is good until it doubles in size. You do want to let it rise in the pan because with the thinness of the bread, it doesn’t get a long time in the oven to rise.
I will report on my next experiment with some other toppings. I am expecting similar results.
Oh – I used a pizza pan from a local take it/bake it outlet (pizza came in it and I just re-used it), and it made a great undercrust on this bread. But you can use any metal pan.
This is such a great bread. And Sturdiwheat, as always, is making your life in the kitchen easier. Enjoy!
Add Wild Rice! Sometimes Beautiful Things Happen!
Several days ago I was making some bread using Sturdiwheat baguette mix. Oh my, these baguettes are SO good! And easy. I had some leftover cooked wild rice and I added a cup of cooked wild rice when I mixed the bread. Let it rise overnight (as in the instructions) and Poof! This bread, in addition to being a great baguette is also versatile. Don’t pass up this simple mix at Sturdiwheat.com.
Hey Hot Cakes!
Just returned from a 50th birthday celebration at Two Bear Farm in Ohio. Gail and Scott (birthday boy) had 200 guests for the celebration. And served breakfast for two days to 30 people. (And lunch, and dinner.) The breakfast hit? Sturdiwheat Almond Pecan Walnut Pancakes. Also omlettes for the whole group! He prepared them on an outdoor griddle. Soooooo good! Everyone loved the pancakes for sure. Kids and Adults – Pancakes are a favorite. (And I must say the other food was great too.)
There is something special about waking up on the farm and smelling bacon and breakfast filling the air. It was a great weekend, filled with food and friends. And Sturdiwheat played its part. What could be easier than Sturdiwheat if preparing pancakes for 30? And come to think of it, what could be easier than Sturdiwheat if preparing pancakes for 2 or 4 or 6? Just add water! It actually IS that simple.
Scott loves cooking for his guests, and he surely has it all in hand for large numbers of guests. Large flat griddle outside . . . Large Grill outside . . . and has honed the way to make it easier. Including Sturdiwheat. Check out the other great products too!
