Yid. Dish: Bread Machine Egg Bread

Have an old bread machine hanging around? Want the taste of challah without the effort? I’ve made this delicious egg bread from a recipe in this cookbook. It’s delicious for sandwiches, french toast, regular toast, and dunked into soup.

This past summer I bought my bread machine for $25 at the local Goodwill. It came with the booklet, and looked like it had only been used a handful of times. After a trip to the library for bread machine cookbooks, and a visit to the supermarkets for baking staples, I was ready to try it out. I made rye bread and whole wheat, white and oatmeal walnut. It’s so easy, and the aroma of bread baking is incredible. While I may be behind the times to jump on the bread machine bandwagon (I recall these contraptions being popular back in the 90’s), I do love my convenience appliances. Make sure to follow the instructions for your bread machine in order for the bread to turn out correctly.
