Italian sourdough bread adventures

edited 3:26PM in EggHead Forum
<p />Some days I wish I had an Xtra Large. I cut down the bread pan to fit, just scrapes the sides a bit when I close the dome and I went ahead and baked 5 of these Italian torpedo's.


The runt of the bunch got eaten up by me, ate the whole thing while it was still warm, so what you see is 4 Italian sourdoughs. Flavor was really super, great with butter. Then it hit me, why not make TOASTED GARLIC BREAD! Ok, now I'm on a mission. Here are a few pic's.




Newman's Own Marinara sauce was gently simmered 3 hours to deepen flavor and make it thicker. Tip; add a touch of sugar to balance the concentrated acid. I removed from the casings two Italian sausages and pre-browned the meat before adding to the sauce, yes sir-reee. The bread was fantasic, crunchy outside, moist inside, wonderfully garlicy with a little asiago cheese to round out the flavor.

    ClayQ,[p]Well done![p]I just finished breakfast and I'm salivating....[p]DD
  • ClayQ, [p]Your breads just keep looking better and better.[p]Can you overnight me one of those loaves? Well if not here is what I would do to one:[p]Once sliced on half lengthwise, drizzle it with some good olive oil, add some salt and fresh groung black pepper.[p]Grill sliced side down until it's just crispy, pull it off the grate and rub with a garlic clove to get the garlic INTO the pores. Top with your favorite cheese and put back into the egg until the cheese is melted.[p]Thats what I would recommend. :o) I guess I'm hungry this morning.[p]E
