Amazing Anything Bread

IMG_3441-2What if we told you we had a magical recipe that could be used for breakfast sandwiches, hamburgers, biscuits, dinner rolls, focaccia, and much, much more? Just a few tweaks allow this basic recipe to become whatever you need– in 30 minutes or less!

Our philosophy in cooking is flexibility. We craft our recipes to be simple, delicious, and CHANGEABLE! Often our flexibility is to account for dietary restrictions, but our basic bread recipe is designed to suit the meal we are cooking that day. Herbs, spices, and the amount of wet ingredients make all the difference.
