Fresh Bread



Seriously, is there anything better?

I really don't think there is.

When it gets down to the basics of life . . .

bread is it!

Even Jesus refers to bread in teaching spiritual lessons!

"I'm listening!"

My cherubs love bread.

My cherubs love homemade bread.

But let's get realistic.

Who really has time for that?

Oh, there are some "easy" recipes.

It's true.

And I use them.

Occasionally.

But my go-to homemade bread and rolls:

Rhodes!


It's right there in the freezer section.

Usually on the bottom shelf.

I honestly don't understand that -- but whatever!

I grab a package or two to have on hand for when I'm needing that "fresh baked bread" without all of the effort!

Fresh Bread

Rhodes bread loaves
Pam
Butter

Take out the number of frozen loaves that you wish to bake.

Spray a bread loaf pan with pam.

Place one frozen bread loaf in the pan and lightly cover with wrap and set in a "draft-free" spot.

Allow to thaw and rise.

The temperature of your house will dictate the exact time.  However, the good news is all the directions are on the back of the package . . .even for a "quick thaw" method . . .which I've done several times because I haven't planned ahead enough!

Preheat oven to temperature on package and bake according to directions.

Once it's baked, rub the top of the loaf with the butter.  Preferably use a cold stick of butter so that it's not drippy with butter, but rather giving a nice light gloss.

Allow to cool a bit before turning out onto a cooling rack.

Cool completely before slicing so that it doesn't tear.
