I’ve raved about breakfast toast before, but I took it to another level when I decided to make my own bread.  I know that sounds like I’m an overachiever, but believe me when I say (write) that it’s SO SO easy to make your own bread.  It’s also super cost effective.  I’ve made bread many times before because it was a requirement in culinary school, so I have experience, but I haven’t made it in a couple years.  The sudden desire to bake my own bread came after Jenna Fisher (aka Pam, from The Office) started working her way through a book called “Bread Baking for Beginners” by Bonnie Ohara, and Instagramming all about her journey through the book.  So I bought the book and I baked some bread. 🙂  I also plan to work through each recipe in order, because I love working out of cookbooks that way.

The best thing about making your own bread at home is that you get to control the quality of the ingredients.  It’s amazing to read the ingredients of most breads in the grocery store.  So many unnecessary additives to make the bread last longer on the shelf.  I’m not a huge bread person, but if I’m going to eat it the least I can do is make it myself from clean ingredients I can pronounce.

This morning to celebrate my bread, I made breakfast toast for myself and the fam.  After toasting the bread I buttered it with Kerrygold Butter, then spread homemade guacamole on top.  I added thinly sliced tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, red onions, sugar-free bacon, and two fried organic eggs.  So good!
