Country Sage Bread
Total TimePrep: 20 min. + rising Bake: 35 min.
Makes1 loaf (16 slices)
- 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
- 1/4 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
- 3/4 cup warm milk (110° to 115°)
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 tablespoons shortening
- 2 teaspoons celery seed
- 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
- 1 teaspoon rubbed sage
- 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1 egg
- 3 to 3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the milk, sugar, shortening, celery seed, salt, sage, nutmeg, egg and 2 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
- Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1-1/2 hours.
- Punch dough down. Shape into a round loaf. Place in a greased 8-in. or 9-in. pie plate. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes.
- Bake at 400° for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown and bread sounds hollow when tapped. Remove from pie plate to a wire rack to cool.

This bread is fantastic for poultry sandwiches and stuffing! The only changes I made were to sub out apple cider for the water and maple syrup for the sugar. Fall canape recipe: thin slice the bread into 2" squares, broil on one side, flip, top with shaved turkey, apple slice, and cheddar, broil to melt cheese, and awesome appetizer!

Am particularly fond of the herb, sage. Kinda stumbled upon this recipe. As a Type I iabetic, must limit carbohydrates, so was pleased to see only 20 carbs per slice. Generally 1 carb is 15 mg., accarding to ADA. Will definitelymake soon. Thank you for sharing!
