Herby Bread and Pea & Lime Sammie Spread

A two-fer today! Crunchy, crumby-liscous homemade bread and a chunky spread that tops it wonderfully. Who wants an easy & rustic lunch?

The bread was what the spread needed – it has body and holds up to it.

Herby Bread

Directions:

Add the ingredients in order listed, except for seeds, or as bread machine calls for, into bread pan. Set for a 1½ lb loaf, basic white, medium crust in standard bread machines. If using a Zojirushi Breadmaker, set for basic loaf, medium crust.

Babysit the dough during the kneading, add more flour if needed. Once the dough looks perfect, add in the sunflower seeds.

Remove promptly after baking is done, let cool before slicing.
