French Bread / Franskbrød

A classic French bread recipe found in “The Fleischmann Treasury of Yeast Baking” published in 1962
French Bread / Franskbrød

The French call their long, slender loaves of crusty bread “pain ordiaire,” or “everyday bread.” They serve it at almost every meal, from breakfast where it accompanies the morning coffee or hot chocolate, through dinner, where it is used to “mop up” every bit of sauce or gravy.

Because of its rather bland flavour, it may accompany any main dish. Its crispness makes it a special attraction with soups, salads and soft entrees such as spaghetti or eggs. It may even appear with the dessert course when dessert is cheese and fruit.

DagwoodDagwood was originally heir to the Bumstead Locomotive fortune but was disowned when he married a flapper (originally known as Blondie Boopadoop) whom his family saw as below his class. He has since worked hard at J. C. Dithers & Company (currently as the construction company’s office manager) to support his family. The Bumsteads’ first baby, Alexander, was originally named Baby Dumpling. The name of his younger sister, Cookie, was chosen by readers in a national contest. The family circle is rounded out by Daisy the dog. The origin of both Dagwood’s last name and Daisy’s name came from Chic Young’s long-time friend Arthur Bumstead and his dog, Daisy.

White Batter Bread / Loff Bakt Med Røre

I know white bread is not considered the healthiest of pastries, but you got to admit it tastes great. A fresh cup of Assam and a decent blue cheese on fresh white bread. That’s a little piece of everyday magic, if you ask me – Ted  😉

This was one of the first dishes I ever made all by myself. I was twelve and rather pleased with the result. If you for some reason don’t feel like using red wine, a tart apple juice will do nicely as a substitute –Ted
