Making Greek bread easy with a breadmaker
EMC Lifestyle – One of Jeff’s aunts gave me this recipe for Greek style bread made in the bread machine. I tried it one day when we were having a light summer supper, and we thoroughly enjoyed the flavour combination of feta cheese, black olives and oregano.
The bread is moist and keeps well for a couple of days. We didn’t quite finish the first loaf however before the last couple of slices were starting to get a bit dry.
I had cooked a turkey a couple of days before and was making hot turkey sandwiches for supper. I decided to use the last of the Greek bread as the bottom layer for the sandwich since the turkey gravy would help to moisten it.
The distinctive flavour of the bread transformed the hot turkey sandwiches into an entirely new and tasty dish. It was so good that I expect I’ll be making this recipe whenever I have leftover turkey.
This bread is also great for sandwiches. I used it one day for tuna sandwiches, and, like the turkey sandwich, they had an entirely different flavour.
The amount given here makes a small loaf, about one pound. The amounts shown in brackets make a larger loaf.
Jeff’s aunt recommended using a sweet bread setting on the breadmaker. I’ve also baked this using the dry milk setting when I substituted skim milk powder and water for the milk. The bread turned out fine both ways.
You can leave out the black olives, but the bread will be just a bit drier.
2/3 cup milk (1 cup)
1 Tbsp. olive oil or vegetable oil (2 Tbsp.)
1/2 tsp. salt (1 tsp. salt)
2 cups flour (3 cups)
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese (2/3 cup)
3 Tbsp. black olives, pitted and sliced (1/4 cup)
2 tsp. sugar (2 tsp.)
1 tsp. oregano (1 1/2 tsp.)
1 1/2 tsp. bread machine yeast (1 1/2 tsp.)
Place all ingredients in the bread machine in the order given. Follow your machine’s directions for baking.
As soon as the bread is done, turn out on a wire rack to cool before cutting.
