Sunday Supper: Dinner Bread

I’ve told you about the virtues of my pressure cooker, so I thought it was past time that I shared a recipe with you! This bread is a meal in itself. It’s simple, and great to make in a small space.

You need a pressure cooker, with a pan inside. I have also made it on a trivet, but sometimes the dough gets a little soggy when I do that.

1. Mix 2 cups whole grain flour with 1 tbsp yeast, a dash of salt, and 2 tbsp sugar or honey. Add 1/2 cup fat (butter, bacon fat, oil). Add enough water to make a sticky dough. Knead in more flour, until the consistency is right.

2. Mix in some protein, sauce, and veggies. Clean out your fridge! I’ll add beans, salad dressing, spinach, cheese, eggs–anything!

3. Shape into a small loaf. Place in the pressure cooker. Cook on high pressure for 25 minutes, then release, using the quick release method. Check for doneness. Cook longer, as necessary.

Sometimes we spread our bread with mayo, for a special treat. Enjoy!

  1. Okay! I’ll try it, as soon as I find a pressure cooker. Helen finally got her way & Dad is no longer working at the huge chemical plant in town. We are on a strict budget again.
