Egg Bread & Buns

Country Egg Bread & Buns ~ topped with Sesame Seeds

A few weeks ago I experimented with making a wonderful bread that is enriched with egg and lightly sweetened with local honey. It is similar to a "challah" bread.

I made a few small rectangular sandwich loaves topped with a shiny egg wash and decorated with sesame seeds:

This bread made great sandwiches and even better tasting toast.

And as you can see in the first photo above and in the one below, I also fashioned a few Country Egg Buns that made delightful buns for my hot dog (organic meat & relish) lunch:

Lunch Close-Up ~ Yum!

The cute little buns were delicious eaten plain as well. No butter needed, as this bread dough already had light olive oil in it to keep it nice and moist.

I packaged and sold the loaves and some of the buns at our local farm store the day that I made them. I will definitely make these again.

Those fabulous sandwich loaves do look great, so golden brown, buttery. A totally scrumptious presentation with those roasted sesame seeds sprinkled on top. I could almost eat the teasing photos.

Yum, yum is an understatement,now I am definitely craving a hot dog. You're killing me.

Hi Bob,
Yes, those egg bread loaves are wonderful. I need to make some more of them soon.

That's a good idea for a brunch treat. Thanks so much for your continued support.
