Another variation is sun-dried tomato bread.

Same recipe, replace oil or fat with 2 jars of sun-dried in olive oil. Finely chop (or lightly blitz) add everything. Also add a generous amount of oregano. 2 dessertspoon plus. I am heavy handed with it.

Continue as normal.

Awake this morning around 4ish as usual, so got stuck into making another loaf...had thoughts lately about a meat pie that I've read about from years back, that needs an update...working on having a go later today.

Yes, I also get that sense when getting up for work, so it usually ends up in an innovative brekkie, but this morning and a memory of one of those "Hairy Bikers" programmes, it was an alarm free 0500 wake up, which became an ad hoc build of a Spanish Tortilla i.e. cold leftover potatoes sliced, then some leftover onion that erindoors had started but left boxed in the fridge.

Onion gently fried off and removed from the pan, a layer of the sliced spud, then a sprinkle of seasoning (but with a tiny sprinkle of garlic powder), then the onions layered, followed by the rest of the spud. All drowned in beaten egg and then the whole pan into the oven for 20/30 minutes to set.

Turn out and can be eaten in wedges either hot or cold. Absolutely scrum

But I digress :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

'Fridge left-overs omlette/Frittata has long been a staple for me.
Just don't get carried away. :)

Now that we are in green leaf season. An omelette with a little feta cheese and some green leaves makes a splendid lunch. A regular to the table in these parts.

My Porcelain garlic scapes need eating now, and omlettes are a good medium.

TBH, I find scapes to be always tough.
A gentle saute in butter or oil softens them well.
It also takes some of the garlic flavour away, so you can double up on quantities :D

I tried the onion loaf again today. I sneaked a couple of bay leaves in with some dried thyme. I'll tell my OH tomoz :D. She reckons not to like bay leaves. The loaf is absolutely stunning by the way. It's now a regular item in my oven. Thanks again for the recipe Mash

I know people who profess not to like onion.
It features in just about everything that I cook.
The same people claim to like my cooking.
There is a lie in there somewhere.. :lol:

Mash wrote: Wed May 20, 2020 8:02 am Really! why do I need to find the recipe...

Finely chop or blitz 1 onion.
In a small pan, warm 200ml of milk.
Add onion and 4 bay leaf.
Simmer gently for 10 minutes
Remove Bay
Cool to 35/40c & add to dry mix.

Remember: you now need 200ml LESS water.

The onion will disappear in the loaf, apart from the crust.

Stunning.
Anyone else trying this?

Seen a pyrex casserole with a flat lid used as a cheap alternative to a cast iron dutch oven. Put the dough in the lid with the base on top, so it's upside-down.
What do you breadheads put on your sourdough pancakes. I had some with fine cut marmalade on em t'other day. Normally I have em with treacle drizzled on then a sliced banana on top, scrummy :D

You can go sweet or savoury, the world is your oyster, though not tried those yet!

A mate cooks his loafs in a heavy ali saucepan in the oven.

Sourdough pancakes eh! Have to say this isn't a bug I have caught. Do they taste that much different?
