"This is very good lightly toasted for BLT's or made into hamburger buns! If you want to up the nutritional value of the bread, just substitute vegetable juice cocktail for tomato juice. Want a zippier bread? Try the spicy vegetable juice cocktail!" — Esther Nelson

This bread is SUPER!!! I've made it several times, and it always comes out great. I use V-8 juice, as suggested, and add 1/2 cup chopped sundried tomatoes, 3 or 4 minced cloves of garlic, and 1 1/2 tsp dried basil. YUM!! I have a friend who begs me for a loaf of this every week. Thanks for a GREAT recipe!
Overall an okay bread...bland though, even with italian seasoning, onion powder, chopped onion, garlic powder added. definitely needs more salt...doubtful i would make again...sorry :(
This bread makes fabulous grilled cheese! I left out the yeast and used a little extra starter and had no problems. I wish I could give 6 stars =)
pretty darned good!
It's a simple recipie that turns out nice, but I added a few extra bits to make it a little more interesting. I mixed in some oregano, chopped sundried tomatoes, and diced pepper-jack cheese bits before the flour. Plus, I used half wheat/half white flour, to make it more wholesome. Delicious & very pretty color! It was devoured & commended at the dinner party I attended!
This bread surprised me. I was expecting that I wouldn't like it because I hate V-8 juice. It's got an amazing chewy crunchy crust with a mild soft inner bread..it is fabulous. Next time, I'm going to try it with some cheese and herbs mixed in. I make bread several times a week and this one has jumped up near the top of my favorite list. Absolutely love it!
EXCELLENT recipe. I added about 1/4 c chopped sun dried tomatoes to this, and will definitely do this again. I also baked only one loaf and froze the second loaf. The frozen loaf worked out fine--very much like buyign frozen bread. I don't know if this made a difference, but some recipes call for rising in the refrigerator for 12+ hours before baking. Due to my time constraints, I put the unfrozen loaf in the loaf pan and refrigerated for 24 hours before baking. I let it rise on the counter for 2 hours before baking Texture was great and the flavor was awesome.
This was a fantastic bread! My starter isn't very strong so it didn't really taste very "sourdoughy" but I added 1 tsp of dried minced onion (next time I'll add 1 Tbsp), some italian seasoning and sundried tomatoes (don't forget to blanch in boiling water first if using dried) and it turned out wonderfully!
I just loooove the crust on this bread (see photo). Next time I am going to make them smaller to use as soup bowls.
