I get something in my head sometimes and I just have to try it to see what happens. This bread was one of those days…kids doing homework, dog barking to go in or out or back in (he can do that pattern for way to long…) and I get a wild hair to make some homemade bread (mind you it is about 4:45 in the afternoon—and there are plenty of other things I need to be doing….but I need to get this bread out of my head (hey I’m a poet and didn’t no-it!)
I will say this…this bread is great in a time pinch….however it is dense (no rise time)….pairs fabulously with yummy olive oil to dip!
1/3 cup oil
3/4 tsp salt(opt.)
2 tsp sugar
2 pkt dry yeast
1 lrg egg (beaten)
4 cup all purpose flour
Combine water, oil, sugar, and yeast.
Let rest 15 minutes.
Add salt and egg.Mix well. Stir in flour. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth.
Shape immediately into rolls, buns, pizza crust, cinnamon rolls, etc.

Bake at 425 F. for about 15 minutes or until brown.
