Being host kitchen of the month for the illustrious Bread Baking Babes is an awesome task.
First, one has to decide on the bread…. Drool-worthy research is involved.
Second, one must bake the chosen bread, in this case, Caramelized Onion, Herb and Cheese Stuffed Bread.
Third, one must eat the bread (best part – this one should be ‘warm from the oven’).
Fourth, one must admire (and drool over) all of the other Babes Breads. I gathered them together to more easily accomplish this task.
And, finally, one must collect all of the amazing variations on said bread by our equally illustrious Bread Baking Buddies.
I might add that I would be very happy if there was a thick slice of each and every one of these breads sitting in front of me…. With a glass of red.
Rumor has it that this went very well with fried eggs….
Carola is a brave baker and doubled the recipe for two delicious, totally different loaves: One sweet with apples and raisins, the other savory with ham, cheese and sun-dried tomatoes.
Both look fantastic.
Sandie, in honor (or caution) of Halloween used 2 heads of garlic in her bread….
And then painted a face on it.
I love it!
It’s not that the Babes or Buddies have a hard time following directions….
When / if they choose to do so they do very well.
I only mention this because Karen came the closest to the original recipe of anyone. Only one small change – which I really like!
Renee also used sun-dried tomatoes (what a good idea!) and mozzarella.
Think ‘Pizza Bread’
She also did a cute twist to finish…..
Judy Brower Hunt made it twice – one sweet, one savory
But I don’t have a post to link to (?)
Louise Persson baked a lovely loaf….
But, alas, also nothing to link it to.
If I have missed any – or anyone is, maybe, a wee bit late and would still like to be included please let me know.
And many thanks everyone for baking this fun, bread with us!
