French Bread by Bread Machine

French Bread by Bread Machine by Salad Foodie

This recipe requires the French Bread setting on my bread machine, best suited for bread doughs low in fat and sugar; this results in a crisp crust and coarse, chewy exterior. (It is similar to the Whole Wheat setting though not identical.....but just might work.) However if neither are available on your machine you could use the…

Whole Grain Pita Bread

Whole Grain Pita Bread by Salad Foodie

Out of pita bread one day and too lazy to go shop, I decided to haul out the bread machine and make pita bread dough. The recipe is whole grain, but not 100%. Still it's a notch up nutritionally from regular white pita bread. Makes 1 1/2 pounds, or ten pita breads. One serving is half of a pocket bread so theoretically the recipe…
