One skill that I continually impress myself with is my ability to bake bread. While out at dinner with my roommate, I had this fantastic sandwich that I wanted to recreate. Though the bread takes a day to make, I think it’s worth it over store-bought bread. My bread recipe makes about 5 sandwiches.

Ingredients

Bread

  • 3 cups Self Rising Flour
  • 1 Packet Dry Active Yeast
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • ½ cup Dried Cranberries
  • ½ cup Walnuts, Chopped
  • 1 ⅓ cup Water

Slaw

  • 1 Gala Apple, chopped
  • 2 cup Original Cabbage Coleslaw Mix
  • 2 tablespoons Dried cranberries
  • ¼ cup Walnuts, chopped
  • ½  cup Plain Greek Yogurt
  • 2  teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon Honey

Sandwich

  • 1 pound Honey Roasted Turkey Deli Meat
  • 5 slices White Cheddar Cheese
  • 2 cups Arugula

Directions

  1. In a standing mixer, mix together the flour, yeast, salt, cranberries, walnuts, and water. Using a paddle attachment or bread hoke, mix this together on a medium setting for two minutes.
  2. While still in the bowl, cover it with plastic wrap. Let this sit at room temperature for 12 hours. Since there are no dairy products in this, it is fine sitting out.
  3. Later, preheat the oven to 450*F . Line either a dutch oven, circle dish with a line, or an 8-inch cake pan with parchment paper.
  4. Remove the dough from the bowl, and shape the dough into a ball. Place it into the pan and cover it. If you are using a cake pan, cover it with tin foil. Bake for 30 minutes, then remove the lid. Continue to bake it after that for an additional 15 minutes. Before making sandwiches with this, let it cool outside of the pan for an hour.
  5. In a medium-size bowl, mix with a spoon the chopped apple, cabbage slaw mix, cranberries, walnuts, greek yogurt, lemon juice, and honey.
  6. Slice the bread into roughly 1-inch slices. Lay on the turkey, cheddar cheese, the slaw, and arugula.
