Swiss Cheese Potato Bread


3 c Bread or all-purpose flour

1 pk Dry yeast

1 ts Sugar

1 ts Salt

1/4 c Instant potato flakes

1 1/2 c Hot water 120-130 degrees

1/2 Butter or margarine melted

2 Eggs

4 oz Swiss cheese coarsely grate

Recipe by: Bernard Clayton – The Complete Book of Breads – Page 337 Equipment: One 8″ tube pan (angel food, bundt, or guegelhupf), greased or Teflon 1 baking sheet. By Hand or Mixer: Measure 1 1/2 cups flour into a large mixing or mixer bowl and stir in the yeast, sugar, salt, potato flakes, and hot water. Beat by hand 30 strong strokes, or for 1 minute in the mixer. Add the melted butter or margarine, eggs, and Swiss cheese. Beat by hand 100 strokes, or for 2 minutes with the mixer turned to high. Stop the mixer. Stir in the balance of the flour, 1/2 cup at a time, first with the spoon and then by hand, or with the mixer flat beater and then dough hook. The dough will be a rough, shaggy mass that will clean the sides of the bowl. However, if it continues to be slack (wet), add small portions of flour. Kneading (8 minutes): Turn the dough onto a lightly floured work surface and knead with the rhythmic motion of push-turn-fold. Add light sprinkles of flour if necessary. In the mixer, with the dough hook, the dough will completely clean the sides of the bowl and form a ball around the revolving hook. The dough will be smooth and elastic. Knead by hand or mixer for 8 minutes. First Rising (1 hour): Place the dough in a greased mixing bowl and pat with buttered or greased fingers. Cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap and leave at room temperature until the dough has doubled in volume, about 1 hour. (If prepared with a new fast-rising yeast and at the recommended higher temperatures, reduce the rising times by about half.) Shaping (6 minutes): Punch down the dough, turn it onto the floured work surface, and let it rest for 2 minutes. It can be shaped in one of two ways. One is to roll it under your palms to about 20 inches in length. Lay the length of dough in the prepared pan. Overlap the ends slightly and pinch together. Or, flatten the ball of dough and, with your fingers, punch a hole in the center and widen this to slip over the tube. Either way, push the dough firmly into the bottom of the pan. Second rising (45 minutes): Cover the pan with a length of foil or wax paper and let rise until the dough has doubled in volume, 45 minutes. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees 20 minutes before baking. (If using a convection oven, reduce heat by 50 degrees.) Place the pan in the moderate oven. Bake until a metal skewer inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean and dry, about 45 minutes. Ten minutes before the baking is done, carefully turn the loaf out of the pan onto a baking sheet. Return to the oven. This will give the loaf a lovely overall brown that it would not otherwise have. But handle it carefully. It is fragile when hot. Take the bread from the oven. Slide the loaf off the baking sheet onto a metal rack to cool before slicing.

No Fail Yeast Bread


No Fail Yeast Bread

Posted by bettyboop50 at 6/6/01 5:57:47 am

Source: Becky Low, Utah State University Extension – Presented 03/29/99 / KSL-TV

Cooks do not make homemade bread as they did a few years ago. Today, that treat may seem impossible for the novice cook – but not with this recipe. It is easy, quick to fix, and takes much less time than traditional homemade bread. Recipe makes 4 loaves.

5 cups warm water
1/4 cup oil
1 1/2 tablespoon salt
1 cup honey or 3/4 cup sugar
3 tablespoon yeast
3 tablespoon dough enhancer, (optional)
11 1/4 cups all-purpose glour

This recipe is easiest if a large mixer is used. If a mixer is unavailable, dough may be kneaded by hand.

Combine water, oil, salt, sugar (or honey) and dough enhancer. Add yeast, mix. Stir in enough flour to make a soft dough. Knead for 8 – 10 minutes. Flour hands and remove from mixer.

Divide into 4 parts. Shape each part into a loaf and place into greased loaf pans. Cover and allow to rise until dough is 1 inch above pan. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake 30 min.

NOTE: A nice variation is to make sweet rolls. Take 1 or 2 of the pieces of bread dough divided to make a loaf. Roll each portion of dough out into a 14 x 8 inch rectangle on a lightly floured surface. Brush with 1-2 tablespoons softened butter, then sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Roll up dough. Cut into 1 inch slices and place on greased baking pan. Allow to rise until double in bulk. Bake as above.

Cornbread-Sausage Stuffing With Apples


12 tb Butter

2 1/2 c Onion yellow

3 Apples cored

1 lb Sausage bulk breakfast

3 c Cornbread homemade

3 c Bread, whole-wheat

3 c Bread, French

2 ts Thyme, dried

1 ts Sage, dried

-salt and pepper 1/2 c Parsley,Italian chopped

1 1/2 c Pecan halves

Prepare ingredients: Core apples and cut into chunks. Do not peel. Jonathan and Winesap are good choices. Breads should be coarsely crumbled. 1. Melt half the butter in a skillet. Add chopped yellow onions and cook

over medium heat, partially covered, until tender and lightly colored, about 25 minutes. Transfer onions and butter to a large mixing bowl. 2. Melt remaining butter in same skillet. Add apple chunks and cook over

high heat until lightly colored but not mushy. Transfer apples and butter to the mixing bowl. 3. Crumble the sausage into the skillet and cook over medium heat,

stirring, until lightly browned. With a slotted spoon, transfer sausage to the mixing bowl and reserve the rendered fat. 4. Add remaining ingredients to the ingredients in the mixing bowl and

combine gently. Cool completely before stuffing the bird refrigerate if not used promptly. 5. if you do not wish to actually stuff the bird (goose or duck, for

example, can make the stuffing greasy), spoon it into a casserole. Cover casserole and set into a large pan. Pour got water around the casserole to come halfway up the sides. Bake for 30 to 45 minutes at 325?F., basting occasionally with the cooking juices from the bird or with the reserved sausage fat if necessary. Enough stuffing for a 20-pound turkey, to make 12 to 14 portions.
