This is truly a combination of the baker (me) and the cook (my hubby) the topping on the bread and you should certainly try it!

“Country Bread with Everything Bagel Seasoning”

2 tablespoons of active dry yeast from a jar

2 1/2 cups warm water

2 eggs

1/2 cup sugar

1 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup vegetable oil

6 1/2 cups bread flour

Put the flour and yeast together in a bowl then add the warm water and knead it a bit then add the eggs, sugar, salt and vegetable oil. Knead it all together until it’s all blended well until its smooth into a ball (about 10 minutes).

Let it rise for about 1 hour until it doubles in size in warm place. I usually place a clean tea towel on top then place a blanket around the bowl.

Divide the dough in two and roll each half into a rectangle (big enough to fit in the pan you are placing in the oven, like 9x18 then roll it up tight. Press at the ends to seal after each turn. Place loaf on pan with a little flour on it and brush with egg white or a little vegetable oil. Let it rise for about 1 hour until double.

Heat oven at 350 and put “Everything but the bagel seasoning blend” (which includes sea salt, onion, garlic and salt) on top after you brush the bread with a bit of oil or egg white.

Bake until golden brown for about 1 hour.

The bread tastes amazing and it’s great as morning toast as well, enjoy!

It makes the house smell so good!


The bread is soft and so fresh!

I am enjoying a few slices at the table with one of my favorite table runners that I designed by hand the Tobacco Leaf Inspired table runner, which go beautifully with my hydrangeas and my blue and white. Well this is a runner that goes well with every decor. 

Since Father's Day is coming up if you did this bread, I know he would love it.

My husband who was a chef says it tastes delicious fresh or toastedl!
