My girls have been a little under the weather lately, so we have been purchasing bread. What is the correlation between my sick girls, and bread, you ask? Well, when they are sick, we like to make easy snacks, and lunches. Some of their favorites are avocado and toast, almond butter and jam, and cream cheese on toast. We do not eat the bread fast enough though, and I don’t remember to put it the freezer, so it gets a little funky after a few days on the counter.
Today I was making some vegetarian onion, mushroom soup for dinner, and I wanted to serve it with some gruyere cheese toast. Since we did not have any non-moldy bread in the house, and I was not going to take my little sickies out to the crowded store, I decided to make some. I did not have the patience today for an all day bread. I also did not have the time to work on, and wait for a bread to rise and rise and rise again. I looked online, and found a really easy quick recipe by Keep Home Simple. This recipe is so quick, it is actually called quick french bread.
As you can see, I am going to have to practice shaping this particular wet dough. I cut some shallow slits in them and then sprinkled water, and sea salt on them.
This is what came out of the oven. They are unique, a bit crispy on the outside and tender on the inside.
Dominic, our girls and I could not wait for these loaves to cool. We sliced one right away, because we love warm bread out of the oven. Dominic ate a slice with a drizzle of grapeseed oil and a sprinkle of kosher salt. Our girls enjoyed plain warm slices, as well as a couple toasted slices, with unsalted butter and homemade jam.
This recipe is adapted from Keep Home Simple’s, Quick French Bread recipe. I hope you give this recipe a try, and enjoy the ease of making this bread, as much as I do. Sharing this bread makes it more delicious, so go ahead and share with your family and friends. Also, go crazy and slice into it right out of the oven. It is at its most mouthwatering this way.
