I know I said "the end" in my last post, but there's an addendum to the whole BLT from scratch saga: BLT bread. When I first proposed the idea of the challenge to Sean, he suggested baking bread that contains bacon, lettuce and tomato. And that's what I did! I adapted a recipe for Olive Bread from Beth Hensperger's Bread Bible, omitting the olives and adding minced spicy salad greens, diced dried tomatoes, and chopped cooked bacon. It was a bit difficult to knead the additives into the dough, but I think I got pretty good distribution:
So good toasted -- tonight we're going to enjoy an appetizer of toasted BLT bread with melted mozzarella on top. Mmmmmm. And then I'm going to take a little break from this whole "from scratch" thing. For a day or two, anyway.
