Pepperoni Bread

Our Pepperoni Bread is popular for the afternoon and evening time.  It has a hearty wheat base, flavored with Italian seasoning.  The Pepperoni is a 6 ounce package of Hormel Turkey Pepperoni Minis, which contains all the flavor of pepperoni without introducing extra fat which can change the texture of the bread significantly.

Ingredients

Dry

2 cups bread flour
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/3 cup powdered milk
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon italian seasoning

Wet

1 1/2 cups water
2 tablespoons butter

Yeast

2 1/2 teaspoons yeast

Add-Ins

6 ounces Hormel Turkey pepperoni minis

Directions

Place wet ingredients in pan and put the dry ingredients on top of wet.

Dig a small ’well’ in the dry ingredients and pour the yeast into the well.

Place pan in Bread Machine and set up for:

  • 2 lb loaf
  • Wheat Bread setting
  • Medium Darkness

Start immediately or set up as a delay timer for when you want the loaf to be ready.

Put the add-ins into the add-in chute, but be prepared to ‘help’ it all into the bread since the add-in chutes are usually designed for 2-3 ouces, not 6.  This means you’ll want to know about when the add-in chute normally drops and set a small kitchen timer to remind you to go help the add-ins into the dough.

After loaf is complete remove from pan and allow to cool for 15 minutes before cutting.
