I do not know what setting to use on the bread machine for the first part of the recipe.Can I make a smaller bread..using half the ingredients? Would like to try it but am unfamiliar with the part time schedule of the the bread. Thanks.

Based on the reviews, I made some tweaks. For the veggies, I used ratatouille from my freezer (sauteed eggplant, onions, tomatoes, and garlic with rosemary and thyme). Instead of bacon, I used pepperoni. In the bread dough I substituted ranch dressing instead of sour cream and olive oil instead of butter. It came out flavorful!

I followed this recipe to the letter and it turned out looking exactly like the photo. It's a good base to start with but we found it lacking in flavor and at best so so. I found that surprising because the recipe looked like it'd be very good. Maybe with a few alterations it would be much better but I doubt I will make it again since it takes so much time to make. I'm sorry I really did want to like it but it just lacks that wow factor. It would however be pretty good with a nice bowl of soup or stew.

Is there a way to make the first part the traditional way? I had a bread machine and didn't like the results at all, so from then on, I didn't mind the good-for-you old-fashioned workout. I would love to do this recipe, but was saddened about the bread machine part. Sorry.

This was delicious. I might try making a jalapeno-cheese bread with this dough recipe next time.
