If you're serious about adding Bag Meals to your food storage,
I would go ahead and make the big batch . . . we will be using
this recipe for other bag meals.
If you want to try it before you make enough for 60 loaves . . .
Here's the Recipe for a single batch of bread:
Combine 1/2 cup Sugar
1/4 cup Dehydrated Shorteneing
1 Tbsp. Salt
To Make the Bread:
Sprinkle 2 Tbsp. yeast into 2 cups warm water.
Let stand until yeast dissolves and begins to foam.
3 cups Warm Water
3/4 cup Homemade Bread Mix
3/4 cup Vital Wheat Gluten, Optional
Knead in about 10-11 cups of flour to make a soft dough.
Continue kneading for 8-10 minutes.
Shape and place in four well-greased medium-sized bread pans.
Let rise until double in bulk, about 25-45 minutes.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes.
Remove loaves from pans and place side by side on a towel.
Cover completely with the towel and place on a rack to cool.
Makes 4 medium loaves.
