If you have wanted to try bread baking and was intimidated with even the thought of it STOP IT! this is stupid simple and perfect to take camping or for demoing at fests or just to have a loaf of warm fresh bread with dinner with 5 minutes of work. I use the gallon ziplock freezer bags as they stand up to a good mixing and no clean up if we are camping. but at home I do it in the bowl. into a bowl or ziploc bag place 3 cups of bread flour. you can use AP but bread flour gives a lighter loaf and more tender bread. Then add 1 3/4 tsp salt. I use sea salt. 1/2 tsp yeast. zip up the bag and toss around a little to mix. if you want to flavor it at all add anything you like at this point. 1/4 crumbled bacon, 1/4 c grated cheese. roasted garlic, any seasonings that are not hugely salty work great or very wet. 1 T of Italian seasoning is great or taco seasoning anything works. a touch of cinnamon and chopped dried cranberries or dates or apricots or any dried fruits nuts anything! really ANYTHING. after seasoning is added toss around a little to mix and then add 1 1/2 cup of water. just tap water not hot or cold just out of the tap. zip up and burp a little and now mix till you do not see any flour in the zip lock bag or in the bowl just till combined. this is a very sticky dough. squish the dough down as much as you can in the bag and seal up leaving a tiny bit open to breath and set on the counter over night or for the day. if in the bowl cover with wrap and let sit on the counter for the night or the day. I mix this in the morning before work and then it is ready when I get home to cook. no kneading, punching down or raising. preheat oven or egg to 400 with a covered dutch oven in it while heating up. in the egg indirect set up. turn out the bread dough onto your floured counter and cover with the bag or wrap from the bowl. let rest while egg is heating up. when to temp remove lid and plop dough into the dutch oven. this is very sticky and messy you will get better at it as you do it and besides it makes the top so pretty!
cook at 400 for 30 minutes and then remove the cover and cook another 10 minutes to brown. if you have a thermopen I go to 200 degrees. turn out and let cool slightly and then try not to eat the whole thing!

three cups of flour, 1 3/4 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp yeast all in the bags. some with seasoning

1 1/2 cup tap water added. I use bottled water when we are camping.

squished around and mixed and ready to sleep on the counter for the night.

fat puffy bags of sticky dough this morning

i cut down one side of the bag to help get the dough out and then cover with the bag while pots are heating up.

in the dutch ovens and then the lid goes back on. cooks for 30 minutes

after 30 minutes the lids come off and they cook for another 10 minutes till golden brown. I test with the thermopen for 200 degrees.

neil took these to work this morning. bacon and chedder, chopped garlic scapes and Asiago cheese and the other had a T of citrus grilling spice.
the green stuff in the picture is fresh garlic pesto

freah warm slice with the garlic pesto on it for me :0
