I love making unusual bread recipes, today we are having ryebread with leeks and crushed pepper in the mix, we will probably have that with bacon and tomatoes for lunch today. Last week I made saffron and raisen bread, and the week before that chilli and smoked pepper bread. What bread recipes do you like that are a little bit different?
