Honey Mustard Bread

If you have a bread machine, this is a great recipe to put the machine before heading out for the day. If you donít have one, it can be adapted for old-fashioned bread making.

3/4 c. water
1/2 c. vegetable broth or water
1 tsp. salt
4 c. bread flour
1/4 c. honey
2 T. gourmet deli mustard
1/2 T. regular prepared mustard
1 tsp. dry onion, minced or flakes
3 tsp. active dry yeast

In a 2-lb. bread-machine pan, layer ingredients in order listed (water goes on bottom and yeast on top). Place pan in bread machine. Set machine on regular or rapid bake cycle. Set timer for later start or start now. When machine is finished (approx. 3 hours after starting), remove bread pan from machine and remove bread from pan. Cool.

Note: This great fill-you-up bread recipe is designed for a 2-lb. bread-machine loaf. If your machine is smaller or you donít have a bread machine, experiment with the above ingredients and donít get frustrated. Itís worth it! We especially like this bread during non-fasting periods to make an unforgettable ham sandwich!
