I usually brainstorm my written post ideas a night or two in advance. Since today’s recipe is bread, I thought that I would try to list my top ten favorite types of bread. Yeah… That was an easier said than done kind of thing.
You see, along with wine and cheese, bread is another thing I cannot live without. My mom may not agree with my views on cheese, but she gets the bread thing. We would eat at Panera once a week when I was home from college just for the side of baguette. So great!
Oh! Then during Easter my mom special orders the real star of dinner, a large loaf of rye bread from Panera of course. You better believe I leave that dinner with a third of the loaf in my bag of leftovers. Rye bread and butter. I could seriously live off of that.
So, there, two of my favorites; French bread and rye bread. Let’s add sourdough and anything made out of pretzel to that list. Oh. And after my brief stint into sourdough starter making, I have a permanent respect for people who care for and make sourdough bread. Pouring some of my wine out for ya homies. Mad respect.
Is Parker House Rolls a type of bread? If so, add it to the list.
I am also adding pumpernickel, the more exotic cousin of rye, to my list.
Then we move on to the dip breads. I love me some pita and some naan. Plus they take the valiant task of carrying hummus and other delicious dips to a whole new level.
Then last but not least, challah. This bread is always so pretty. I am still trying to master the perfect looking loaf but even if you can’t get the edges to tuck under perfectly, it still is a great tasting bread. Normally I have a sweet filling thing going on inside of it, but I have a special holiday morning casserole recipe planned and I thought this bread would take it to a whole new level. Just wait and see!
Well, I think I ran out of bread. Guess it was easier than I thought to narrow it down to ten.
