1 recipes for basic white bread
Leftovers from spaghetti night
Mozzarella cheese (grated)
Topping: Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, Parsley, and salt & pepper.
I love Spaghetti with meat sauce, and I like to cook like I’m feeding an army, so there are always leftovers. This recipe is great for adding a little variety to your leftovers. It combines two favorites, garlic bread and spaghetti. Around my house we call it spaghetti bread!
Here is how I do it:
I start with a basic white bread recipe. It makes 2 loaves so you can cut the recipe in half if you like but, I like to make a loaf of bread also when I make spaghetti bread.
After the first rise dough I turn it out on to a floured surface and roll it out, not too thin, I would say about 3/8 inch thick. I like to make sure I get a nice square out of it.
Add a layer of cheese then your spaghetti then another layer of cheese and some pepperoni (optional).
Cut the dough then braid.
Egg wash the top of your braided loaf. Sprinkle your topping mix. I then turn my oven on its lowest setting temp (which for my oven it’s 170 degrees) just until it reaches that temp then I shut it off. I then put the spaghetti bread in the oven to proof for about 10 to 15 minutes or so. I just want it to rise a little so the dough is not too thin. When it has risen to the height I like I turn my oven on 350 degrees and bake it till it’s golden brown. The time will depend on your oven so I always just say to keep an eye on it. I recommend serving it up right away with a side of marinara. It’s so crispy and delicious.
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my family does. Bon Appetite!
