Italian Casserole Bread
Recipe By : Sandy's Recipe Journal
Serving Size : 6 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Breads
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 cups warm water
1 package active dry yeast
2 teaspoons salt
1 tablespoon sugar
4 cups all-purpose flour -- sifted

Preheat oven to 400 F.

Dissolve yeast, salt and sugar in warm water. Stir in flour (dough will be sticky). Let rise until doubled in bulk; stir down and divide dough into two well-greased 1-quart casseroles.

Sprinkle salt or garlic salt on tops of dough and let rise to the top of casseroles. Bake 1 hour at 400 F. or until tests done.

Do not grease tops when baked and they will stay crusty.

An added treat: before first rising, stir in 1/4 cup fresh chopped chives or thinly sliced green onion.

Notes : This bread is so easy and a real treat with homemade minestrone soup.
