Easy Fresh Bread Mix!

Our weather is very nasty and rainy tonight, so I opted to stay in and enjoy my home. I made fresh bread sticks for our spaghetti dinner tonight!
I make this super easy bread mix and store it in my fridge for the days that I have very little time.

 Now when I do have time, I like to make the mixes up for the days that I do not have time to spare. I make several mixes at one time and store them in quart size zip lock bags.  I keep them for several months in my fridge, and pull one out when I am in the mood for fresh bread.

 All you do is add the 1 1/2 cup of warm water and the mix to your bread machine and turn it on! I use the dough cycle, take the dough out, and make bread sticks, pizza crust, yeast rolls, cinnamon rolls.. 

If you want a loaf of fresh bread you just use the bread cycle. 


This recipe makes a large amount of dough so I divided mine tonight to make bread sticks, and then I am making fresh rolls for our ham and cheese sliders tomorrow night!

 I love this recipe because on a busy day you can have the taste of homemade bread or roll of your choice!  I hope you enjoy this as much as I have!

Here is a pic of my sign that hangs on my kitchen cork board!

I had nobody leave it tonight! I also use this board to display my daughters art work she makes me!

I will leave you with the bread mix recipe:
4 cups of all purpose flour
2 tbs of sugar
2 tbs. of butter
1 tsp of salt
1 tbs of yeast
Combine your flour, sugar, salt and cut in your butter till fine.

 I add them all at once and make at least two to four bags at a time.

 I close the bag and give it a good shake, then stir in yeast and shake. Store in fridge till ready to use. I wrote on my bags with a sharpie "Bread Mix add in 1 1/2 warm water." That way I don't have to look it up! Very convenient.
Until next time,
