    I put a cup of oatmeal in my wholewheat bread now also, along with ground flax and sunflower seeds. Makes for some VERY good bread!

    I grind my own. Just a milisec in a coffee/spice grinder does the trick.

    because texture/amount of water (based upon ingredients used) determines outcome if the ingredients can be fermented enough or not. even measured recipes can be off a bit due to moisture content of the ingredients. when using the bread machine to make the dough and the first rise i would always watch it mix and test the dough after it was mixed and started kneading, if there were things like dried oats in it i would add a little more moisture to compensate as i knew the second knead and rise would take up the extra moisture.

    the test i used was by poking the bread to see how much it reacted. if the poke went in too much or the dough was too sticky then there was too much moisture. if it resisted the poke well enough it was often fine. if it was really hard then i'd add more moisture. that's about how i remember it. it's been a long time now since i've made bread. :(

    like you though i rarely let the machine do the baking as i would more often use the bread as a crust for a pizza.

    No not wrong. I substitute too. But bread in the bread machine is very sensitive to changes. I have never heard of bread being raised too long. But, as long as it tasted good.

    i think he just means that it didn't get punched down again so it was too airy/holey - at least that is what happens here at times if Mom doesn't care to go another round - it's still edible, but just not dense enough to hold together well when sliced thin.

    Chicken salad.
    Bake a whole chicken, this can be done in the crock pot during the day. Pick meat off the bones and cut it up in chunks.

    1 cup pecans or walnuts or slivered almonds or a mix of all 3
    1 cup chopped celery
    4 boiled eggs, chopped
    1 bunch seedless grapes, cut in half
    Enough mayonaise to hold it all together, not a lot, just enough

    You can add more nuts or celery or eggs or whatever you want. I never chop stuff to death, I want identifiable chunks. I hate chicken salad that looks like mush and has too much mayo in it-it's gross. The nuts and celery gives it a crunch, the grapes give it a sweet. I love this recipe.

    Frittata
    This is basically an open omelet.
    Whip how ever many eggs you want to use.
    Pour in a greased skillet or you may want to use a large casserole dish, like a 9x11
    Scatter your veggies over it, anything goes. Scatter browned pan sausage or pepperoni or cut link sausage or whatever meat you want to use.
    Cover with grated cheese.
    Bake at 350 until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean, about 10 to 15 minutes.

    This is quick, easy and filling. Serve with French garlic bread.

    King Ranch Casserole
    I found a good recipe, but where it says to add the canned soups, first stir in a bar of cream cheese. After that gets stirred in good, then add the canned soups.

    https://www.southernliving.com/recipes/king-ranch-chicken-casserole

    I have to admit that I never used the cream of soups. I layered tortillas with chicken/onion/bell pepper with a layer of whole corn tortillas, then Velveeta cheese, then more chicken mixture, topping it off with grated sharp cheddar. To keep it from being dry, I poured some broth from the chicken in it. Either way, it's hard to mess up King Ranch Casserole. Tweak it to suit yourself.

    Alfredo sauce
    Melt a stick of butter
    Add several cloves of fresh garlic-I like to grate them instead of mince
    1 pint of heavy cream
    1 8 oz bottle of Parmesan grated cheese

    Add the cream to the melted butter and garlic, heat, but do not let it boil, take off heat and stir in Parmesan. You can add chunks of (heated) chicken, or shrimp, or sausage, and serve over pasta.
    You can also add fresh spinach to the Alfredo sauce right before you take it off the heat, just enough to wilt it.

    Ham
    Bake a whole ham, serve with sides

    Leftover ham
    Chop and use in Frittata
    Grilled cheese and ham sandwiches, serve with French fries.
    Fried ham chunks in hash browns
    Hambone and beans YUM! Serve with cornbread

    Cornbread Supper
    Basic cornbread recipe
    1 1/2 cups WHOLE corn cornmeal, if you can find it
    1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
    1/3 cup wheat bran
    2 eggs
    2 tablespoons baking powder
    2 cups sweet milk

    Mix it all together. Have ready;

    1 onion, chopped
    1 pound pan sausage, browned
    1 bell pepper, chopped
    1 cup grated cheese

    Heat a DEEP skillet with several tablespoons oil or fat in it. Pour just enough cornbread mixture in it to cover the bottom. Add sausage, onion, bell pepper, then top with the rest of the cornbread mixture. Top with grated cheese.

    Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour at 375 degrees. This is VERY filling and easy to make.

    Mac N Cheese with Spam
    Make your regular mac n cheese. Cut up a can of Spam in chunks, brown in a skillet, add to the mac n cheese. Pour into a casserole dish, top with grated cheese and bake until cheese on top is all melty. Hint; add a bar of cream cheese to your mac n cheese.
