Black Pepper And Parmesan Bread Recipe For Bread Machines

black pepper parmesan breadSandwiches can be made into a gourmet lunch when you use recipes that turn out artisan bread without much more effort than a plain white loaf, and this recipe for Black Pepper Parmesan Bread baked in a bread machine won’t disappoint you.

This bread is great with ham, smoked salmon, cheese and believe it or not, divine packed with chicken salad and mayo. But best of all I think accompanying a hot freshly cooked omelet for lunch.

Though not originally for bread machines, this easy recipe for Parmesan and pepper bread has been adjusted and then tested in three different makes.

It works very well in the three different models tested including my own Panasonic – and there’s no reason it won’t work perfectly well in yours.

Load the following ingredients into the bread machine in the order your manufactures book advices, but as these recipes will always tell you, basically separate the yeast away from the salt, sugar and water by using the flour.

For a 1lb loaf:
1 ½ tsp bread machine yeast
6 ½ oz of white bread flour
3 ½ oz wholewheat flour
1 tsp of salt
1 ½ tsp freshly ground black pepper – add more if you like it hot
2 ½ oz grated Parmesan cheese
1 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp vegetable oil
*2 tbsp powdered milk
*6 fl oz water

* If you don’t have any powdered milk then just use ordinary milk instead of water

For a 1 ½ lb loaf:
2 ¼ tsp bread machine yeast
10 oz of white bread flour
5 oz wholewheat flour
1 ½ tsp of salt
2 ¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper – add more if you like it hot
3 oz grated Parmesan cheese
1 ½ tbsp sugar
3 tbsp vegetable oil
*3 tbsp powdered milk
*8 fl oz water

* If you don’t have any powdered milk then just use ordinary milk instead of water

Let the loaf cool thoroughly before storing ( or eating!). We all have our own little ways when it comes to storing bread – and mine isn’t a bread bin but cotton bread bags – click here to read more. Usually home baked doesn’t last long, but when you do manage to bake a loaf without it getting eaten in minutes by hungry kids, it’s worth storing it in a way that will keep it fresh for longer without sending the crust soggy – ugh.

Healthy Filling Workday Lunch Idea With Gourmet Breads

I don’t really get a break at lunchtime, schools are like that, something to do with kids! But a tasty fresh gourmet lunch is provided by taking a slice of the black pepper and Parmesan bread, lightly buttered if you wish, and tossing two eggs plus some diced sweet peppers into a  Joie Microwave Omelet Pot, which doubles as cooker and bowl. So long as you have access to a microwave, you’re in business!

The pepper and cheese in the bread goes brilliantly well with a delicate omelet, neither drowning out the other. These pretty ceramic microwaveable pots have gotten popular since I started bringing one in for lunch and other staff liked what they saw. Several have appeared in the main staff room at break-time now, and I recommend these to anyone and everyone wanting a well balanced hot lunch in a hurry – with no clearing up either, other than the pot and a fork into the dishwasher.

The beauty of a lunch like this is prep in the morning – so darn quick it can be done in under 3 minutes, depending on the filling of course. Add chopped boiled potato and a diced spring onion for a five minute Spanish omelet you simply won’t believe can taste that good from what’s gone into it – very healthy and low calorie too.
