Bread recipes

Hi Mamas,
We go through a lot of bread here, and my husband has recently expressed interesting learning how to make bread. There's nothing I love more than warm, fresh bread, so I'm all for it! He's especially interested in how to save some of the yeast dough for the next batch (I think this is how sourdough is made?).

Anyways, if anyone has some time could you offer up some advice and/or recipes, or perhaps direct me to a good website?

Thanks so much,
Mel

Re: Bread recipes

I use the No-Knead Dutch Oven method.

Here's the original recipe.
Here are variations of it.
_
I use 2 ceramic covered casserole dishes instead of the dutch oven to make 2 smaller loaves.

This is an easy method to learn and can be customized w/different ingredients to get the flavor you want. If you don't have the time to wait for the long rise you can add more yeast and bake it the same day (add 2tsp. instead of the 1/4 tsp. called-for in the recipe). It allows me to prep and bake when I want/have time and vary the bake time whenever is more suitable to my schedule.

I just made my own Ww hamburger buns for our grilled turkey burgers for dinner tonight using this method. It works for pizza dough and anything bread

GL - it's really addicting!

P.S. Another similar method is the Artisan Bread in 5 minutes a day method. I have read many good reviews of it, but it requires refrigerating the dough - I don't have that much fridge space so the no-knead method is best for me. I don't mind mixing up a new batch every couple days as needed. I just mix all the ingredients together before bed & it's ready to bake by dinner. I've even let it go as long as 24-36 hours before baking and it turned out great.
