Tomato Bread

This tomato bread recipe was created to accompany my chuck roast dinners. The moist insides and tasty tomato flavor also makes this bread a perfect accompaniment to any pasta dinner, such as spaghetti or lasagna. Makes one medium loaf.

Prep Time: 2 hours

Cook Time: 45 minutes

Total Time: 2 hours, 45 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp shortening
  • 1 package active dry yeast
  • 3/4 cup warm water
  • 3 oz tomato paste
  • 2-1/4 cups bread flour
  • egg white
  • poppy seeds

Preparation:

  1. In medium bowl, mix together salt, sugar, shortening, yeast, water, and tomato paste. Mix in 2 cups of flour.

  2. Turn dough out on floured board. Knead in remaining 1/4 cup flour.

  3. Put dough in greased bowl, turn over so that top is greased. Cover and let set in warm place for about 1 hour or until double in size.
