Kitchen Tips Tuesday

After Tammy's two posts about child size bread loaves, I decided to try my hand at it! The results...
My family loves them! For my family it takes TWO mini loaves to feed them some as a side to a dinner meal.

I cheat just a little bit in the bread making process in that I use my breadmachine to do all the "hard work". I put all my ingredients into the breadmachine for a 2lb loaf and put it on the "dough setting" and in 1 hour 20 minutes my bread dough is ready to make into loaves to let rise for another hour before baking. The dough is enough to make 4 mini loaves.

I have been working at building up my freezer stock of these mini loaves because I think I am going to be using them for gift giving in my holiday gift baskets and neighbor goodie trays this holiday season.

Thanks for the comment and the question.

To answer you question, I usually do not have trouble with freezer burn. I stick my loaves of bread in a ziploc freezer bag and then take a straw and suck the air out of the bag. Also the bread doesn't stay in the freezer over a couple of months. For other freezer tips, check put my post here
