Oatmeal Bread

I have a new favorite sandwich bread recipe.

I like thicker bread for sandwiches because I think it makes them tastier. 

It is called Oatmeal Bread. (This time I did use a recipe...here it is)

Combine in Large Bowl (I use my kitchenaid)

1 c. quick oats

1/2 c. whole wheat flour

1/2 c. brown sugar

1 T. Salt

2 T. Margarine

Heat 2 c. Water to boiling

Pour over dry mixture and stir in to combine. (I use the dough hook attachment)

In separate bowl dissolve 2 packages of yeast in 1/2 C. warm water

Once the batter has cooled to luke warm (took me about 20 minutes)

Stir in:

5 c. white flour

When dough is stiff enough to handle turn onto floured board and knead for 10 minutes (again, I used my kitchenaid) Place in greased bowl, cover, and let rise till doubled.

Punch down and let rise again. (this is where I started changing things, once the dough had risen once I punched it down and split it into two loaves and placed the dough into two greased loaf pans. Then I let it rise 40 minutes)

Shape into two loaves and place in greased 9 x 5 x 3 pans.

Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes

Cool on rack and coat crust  with margarine for a softer crust.

This bread tastes great fresh out of the oven. For sandwiches I let it set overnight
