Bread has been loved all around the world for thousands of years. It's no wonder, considering the many ways bread can be made, flavored and incorporated into so many foods, not to mention how universally good it tastes! Bread can be served as amain course for breakfast, a tasty accompaniment to a meal, or an anytime snack. It can be used in baked dishes and casseroles, desserts and more. Bread recipes shown below include croutons, pizza dough, breadsticks, biscuits, quick breads, muffins, croissants (crescent rolls) and more, as well as flavo rful spreads to top bread. Making your own homemade bread is much easier than you think. With the invention of the bread machine, making a loaf of homemade bread is as simple as a press of a button. Making bread without a bread machine is still very easy, giving you more control over the entire process as well as the shaping of the bread before you bake it, and quite frankly, it's fun!
