OK, seriously, I know it’s hard to believe, but this bread tastes better than it looks. Scout’s honor. Spicy Italian sausages, sauteed onions & garlic, sun-dried tomatoes and fresh mozzarella, all wrapped inside herb-filled whole wheat bread. I’m drooling, but I can’t have any yet, because this bread is destined for a Very Special Occasion: my bachelorette party up in the Catskills this weekend. A dozen girls, (at least) a dozen bottles of champagne, a hot tub and sausage bread. And they say you can’t find heaven on Earth.
For this version I used about 3/4 whole white wheat flour and 1/4 whole red wheat (bread) flour. I replaced shallots with yellow onion, and allowed it a long, slow rise in the refrigerator overnight. It looks fantastic and got a great oven spring – packed with Flying Pigs sausage, fresh local mozzarella, homegrown tomatoes dried last summer, and organic local dried herbs, how could it not taste as good as it looks? Impossible.
