Peppered Jerky Bread

Contents of jar
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup lukewarm water

Load ingredients into the bread pan in the order suggested in your owner's manual, reserving yeast for last. Insert the bread pan into the bread maker, and select "White', desired crust color, rapid or normal baking cycle (depending on yeast used) and loaf size. Select desired delay option, and press Start.


You may substitute cream cheese for the olive oil if desired. (Fat free cream cheese is not recommended).

This recipe can be used to make wonderful bread sticks, croutons or sandwich buns, by using a "dough only" cycle and forming dough into desired shapes, then letting rise and baking in a 350 degree F oven for the appropriate length of time (check recipes for these items to determine appropriate length of time).
