It was like eating a pre-pickle
Oh man. If only you knew the thoughts that run through my pea-brain. One afternoon, as I was smelling the freshly baked bread cooling on my counter and thinking about the delicious vegetables in my refrigerator, I decided to make a veggie sandwich with a cream cheese spread.
So, I gathered fresh dill from the garden.
Then I sliced fragrant cucumbers into thick rounds.
And mixed up some cream cheese with garlic salt.
And before I knew it, I had a delicious cream cheese spread.
But it didn’t stop there. Yep. I put another peice of bread on top of the cream cheese and cucumbers and made this thing called a sandwich. Inventive, I know.
Here, let me show you a picture:
This is revolutionary, people. I think these sandwiches are going to change the world. Portable. Adaptable. Flexible. They have it all.
So, anyway, back to the thoughts running through my head. Eating dilled cream cheese with cucumbers… Admit it, you know where I’m going with this. “This sandwich is like eating a pre-pickle. You know, all the ingredients of a pickle before they become, well, a pickle.” Price less.
Dilled Cream Cheese (2 servings)
2 oz. cream cheese
1/4 t garlic salt
1 T fresh dill, chopped
Whole Wheat Oatmeal Bread
2/3 cup rolled oats
1 tablespoon butter
2 tsp salt
1/4 cup agave
1 1/3 cups boiling water
3 cups flour – 2 cups WW, 1 c bread flour
2 T vital wheat gluten
2 tsp instant yeast
Add boiling water to oats, butter, salt, and agave nectar in the bowl of your stand mixer. Let sit for 20 minutes. Add yeast and stir. Add VWG (0r omit) and remaining flour in increments until a dough forms. Knead 4-5 minutes. Let dough rest and proof, until double in size (about 1 hr). Punch down dough and roll into a rectangle as long as your 9″ loaf pan. Fold the dough over itself, jelly roll style, and place in greased loaf pan. Let rise, coverd, until it just crests the top. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 for 25 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 190*.
