This morning I made Amish bread, it is my new favorite bread recipe. It calls for all white flour but I have been adding 3 cups of fresh ground prairie gold wheat and 3 cups of white. It is delightful made into egg salad sandwiches, I will post my egg salad recipe as well.
Amish White Bread Recipe
2 cups warm water (110F)
2/3 cups white sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons active dry yeast
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup vegetable oil
6 cups white flour (or 3 cups wheat, and 3 white)
1. In a large bowl, dissolve the sugar in the warm water, add yeast. Allow to proof until yeast resembles a creamy foam, about 10 minutes.
2. Mix salt and oil into the yeast. Work in 6 cups of flour. Knead dough on a lightly floured surface until smooth. Place in well oiled bowl, and turn once to coat the entire surface of the dough with oil. Cover with a clean damp cotton cloth. Allow dough to rise until double in size. (Mine took about an hour).
3. Punch dough down. Knead for a few minutes, and divide in half. Shape into loaves and place into well oiled 9x5 loaf pans. Allow to rise for 30 minutes.
4. Bake in a 350F oven for 30 minutes. When you thump the top of the bread it should sound hollow.For a buttery crust, brush hot loaves with butter. Cool on a rack and enjoy! Also find the recipe here
8 hard boiled eggs
1/4 cup mayo
Squeeze of Spicy Brown Mustard
Squeeze of Yellow Mustard
After my eggs are done, I dice them up and then add my mayo, squeeze of mustards, and lemon pepper and seasoned salt to taste. I just sprinkle it across the eggs lightly, so I'm not sure how much I use.
This is a salty flavor and I love the contrast with the sweet Amish bread, it's a family hit!
