Wheat sandwich bread

This recipe presumes a bread machine.

  • 1⅓ c water
  • ¼ c grains (fast-cooking better)
    ⅛ c gluten
    2 cups wheat flour
    1 c less ⅛ white flour
    2 T dry milk
    2 t salt
    3 T honey (use a T measure to make indents in the flour, pour in)
    3 T butter in small pieces
    just less than 2t yeast on top

Add ingredients in order - the gluten and flour will "float" on top of the water, make sure the grains you add are in the water to soak.

    Neapolitan Pizza

    We put together a simple-but-wonderful Neapolitan style pizza, largely following this SeriousEats recipe, as most other recipes required a wood burning oven or breaking your home oven's cleaning cycle lock.

    • 14 oz can of whole San Marzano tomatoes
    • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
    • 2 medium-large balls of fresh buffalo mozzarella

    Jennifer's Hot Rolls

    Jon's cousin-in-law Jennifer makes these delicious biscuity rolls.

    In a stand mixer bowl, mix 1/2 cup sugar, 1.5 tsp salt, and 2 cups warm water.

    Sprinkle on 2 packages yeast. Let it sit for a few minutes until it "blooms."

    Add 1 egg and 1/4 cup shortening.

    Mix in 5 1/2 cups flour using stand mixer with dough hook. Make sure to scrape down sides occasionally to ensure all flour gets mixed in.

    Let rise until doubled (~1 hour or so).

    Punch down.

    Blueberry Bagels

    I love blueberry bagels and cream cheese. They're probably ... no ... definitely my favorite food. If I was stranded on a desert island and could only take one food with me (nutritional value aside), I would take blueberry bagels and cream cheese. I've often joked (only somewhat kidding...) that I could go on an all-bagel diet (with some proteins beyond cream cheese thrown in for delicious bagelwiches). In fact, I'm eating a blueberry bagel with cream cheese right now (not even one I made in this recipe... while making this recipe, I ate a storebought blueberry bagel with cream cheese).

    Steamed buns with Pork Belly

    While the entire recipe is far too insanely complicated to repost here, it comes from the Momofuku cookbook.

    The components are:

    • steamed buns
    • roasted pork belly (start with 3lbs skinless pork belly)
    • scallions
    • sweet pickles
    • hoisin and siracha sauces

    The candied crispies from the roasting of the pork make a fantastic condiment to the buns

    Pork Belly

    • 3lbs skinless pork belly
    • ¼ cup kosher salt
    • ¼ cup suger

    Yogurt Sourdough Bread

    this recipe uses the sourness and bacteria from yogurt to fake a sourdough. It's not fantastic, but it's a lot easier than feeding a starter all the time.

    * 1/2 cup plain, nonfat yogurt * 2/3 cup water * 1 tablespoon lemon juice * 1 tablespoon margarine or butter, softened * 3.25 cups bread machine flour * 1 tablespoon sugar * 1.5 teaspoon salt * 3 teaspoons regular active dry yeast OR * 2.75 teaspoons bread machine or quick-acting active dry yeast

    Egg Bread

    This recipe, from Diana's Desserts tasted great, but was not the best for the bread machine - it was super flaky/crumbly, and took some serious effort to extract. Perhaps using the machine to make the dough and then continuing in the oven would work better?

    Ingredients for 1 Pound Loaf:
    1/2 cup milk
    1 large egg
    1 tablespoon butter or margarine, cut up
    3/4 teaspoon salt
    2 cups bread flour
    1 tablespoon granulated sugar

    Peasant Bread

    Thick and crusty, relatively easy to make. Bonuses, it has almost no fat (it uses steam to keep it moist, but this means it doesn't last long. It's easy to add creativity to the recipe with herbs and cheese. However, this bread is fucking excellent right out of the oven with soft butter and honey.
