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:

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.
