Ok everyone heres the recipe!!!These directions are for a conventional oven, but they also have directions for a bread machine, so if anyones interested please let me know! This bread is quite "heavy", assuming I did it right I think its great for dipping in flavored oil.It tasted great to me! If you adjust anything let me know how it turns out
Enjoy!



If anyone wants the recipe for Kathe's "Pillsbury's Rustic Italian Bread" she will be glad to PM it to you - just contact her. - Thanks, kitchenelf

Thanks!
I finally have a use for that oddball sized measuring spoon King Arthur sold me when I was ordering some baking stuff last year.... they said to use it whenever a recipe called for a package of instant yeat.
This bread is getting made this week.

Thanks for the recipe, GrantsK. Sounds easy enough, but I'm with Sattie. Up north, perfect bread. Down here,
What the what? No luck. But I'm gonna try again.
Luckily, I don't have photo equip, so I won't embarrass
myself. At least with bread...............LOL!

I took out some beef this morning for some stew. Then I'll make some goulash the next day or two. All in anticipation of when I make this bread. I sure hope it looks as good.

Im assuming you have baked bread before so therefore it will probably turn out better than mine....please let me know what you think once you've made it!!!
Me thinks it will be very good for sopping up gravy

Me, bake bread? Noooo.
I made crusty bread once, but won't count that because it didn't quite come out. Maybe it did, but it was a little too crusty. Virtually all my bread baking has been done in a bread machine...... like I said in another thread, set it and forget it
This will be my first attempt at a "real" loaf.

Question:
On the final rise, after you have shaped it into a loaf, what do you cover it with?
I've got this fabric stuff.... I don't remember what it's called, but KA sold it to me, it looks like burlap and they said to keep it in the freezer. I think I can use that.... would I dust it with flour first?
Or, would I spray some plastic wrap with oil and cover the loaf with that?

I just used a cloth kitchen towel, no flour or spray...I had no problems with it sticking. Im not sure about the burlap, if its kept in the freezer it will be cold and you dont want that, you want to put the bread in a warm place, covered. HTH

Thanks.
I'm pretty sure that was its use, to cover bread..... it's been a while since I ordered it. The freezer is to store it after using and I used it once. I just don't remember if I put it on the dough, or put the dough on it
I'll let it warm up some.
