You'll probably say this is a strange flavor for bread as that was my first reaction when I read about it in The Knead for Bread. But the pictures that followed, showing a gorgeous looking panini, makes me want to try it out. And it was very good, and so pretty with the red crust the beet gave to the bread! The texture is chewy, with a crunchy crust when out of the oven although the crust turn soft the next day. That must be because I didn't add a bowl of water in the oven when baking to create more steam. I added dried thyme instead of fresh ones as I do not have any. The dough before baking is a beautiful pink but the inside turns brown after baking. The crust remains pink though.
Made these sandwiches for breakfast and they were scrumptious! Even the boys said so and that's saying a lot coming from them!
This is my sandwich, just with eggs. I toasted the bread in the skillet after frying the eggs. See the red crust? Amazing thing is, the inside of the bread remains brown.
This one has got sausages, cheese and tomatoes added. The lectuce got pulled out as usual. You need to have a big mouth to eat this! The boy had already chomped down on it before I could take a picture. He declared it more than delicious! :D
