Peasant Bread

A simple to make, no-knead recipe for the BEST bread ever!
Course: Bread
Author: Jenn

Ingredients

  • 1 package dry yeast 2 1/4 tsp. if measuring
  • 2 cups warm water 110 degrees
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 4 cups flour
  • 1 egg white OR melted butter for topping
  • garlic salt I use California garlic salt

Instructions

  • Mix yeast and warm water and let sit for 10 minutes.
  • After 10 minutes, pour the yeast and water mixture in a mixing bowl with the sugar, salt and flour. Do not mix too long. Do not knead. Let rise until doubled.
  • After rising, split into 2 rounds and place on greased cookie sheet. Let rise again until doubled. Preheat oven to 425º F.
  • Brush tops of bread rounds with egg white or melted butter and then sprinkle with garlic salt.
  • Bake at 425º F for 10 minutes then reduce heat to 375º F and cook additional 15 minutes or until golden brown.
  • We like tearing chunks off the rounds and dipping in olive oil and seasonings. So delicious! Enjoy!
