I am getting tired of bread prices rising. I can’t believe when I walk into the bread aisle I’m looking at breads that cost between $3.00-$6.00 a loaf. The store brands are even $2.00 a loaf and they go bad much quicker and don’t taste as good. Instead of looking for the breads I like, I normally go for what’s on sale. Who can afford a $6.00 loaf of bread? Craziness!
That’s why lately I’ve been baking my own bread on the weekends. Sure it doesn’t last as long as bread from the store but it’s cheaper and it tastes better. My normal loaf is a traditional white loaf though when I can get 9 grain flour I like to make loaves with that flour. It’s awesome.
But making white bread all the time gets boring. I like to jazz up my bread whenever I can. This bread is the perfect example of a jazzed up bread. It is swirled with herbs and Dorot Crushed Garlic. Only problem? Fresh herbs are hard to come by in the middle of winter and they certainly aren’t growing in my herb garden. Well, I don’t think they are but it’s hard to see under all that snow.
So instead of going to the market and buying a bunch of overpriced fresh herbs that I’ll never use before they go bad I turned to Dorot. Their fresh frozen herbs
were the perfect solution to my problem. I already had the chopped parsley in my freezer but I needed a few other herbs. The problem? The closest store that sells Dorot herbs is over an hour away. Thankfully I recently discovered that Dorot makes fresh frozen herbs under a different name, Pop & Cook, that sell at Wal-Mart stores. The closest Wal-Mart store is only 5 minutes away so I made a trip down there and bought the chopped basil and crushed garlic
The bread turned out well. It had a crunchy crust but was soft and light inside. The herbs made a pretty green swirl on the inside of the bread. I could really taste the herbs and garlic in the bread and lightly spread it with butter before enjoying.
I received samples of Dorot Herbs and Pop & Cook herbs but all opinions are 100% my own. Amazon Affiliate links are used in this post.
