I baked a couple of loaves of homemade bread over the weekend. I used Michelob Ultra Amber for both of them and they tasted great. The first loaf was my basic no-knead bread:
The second loaf was a garlic and herb bread. I used my basic recipe and added about three tablespoons of minced garlic, 1/3 cup chopped oregano and sage, and a few tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil. I added all the extra ingredients just before the second rise, a couple of hours before baking. The herbs stayed moist and the garlic roasted, so the flavor was smoky and sweet. If I’d had some parmesan cheese on hand, I would have added some of that too.
We made some more pimento cheese and have been using this bread to make the sandwiches. It toasts really well and gooey bits of cheese ooze through the holes in the bread when you bite down. My inner child really enjoys this.
