Dinner in 25 minutes

Life has changed since I got the book Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day, bread-wise at least. Let's not get too carried away. Having homemade bread at your finger tips is as fabulous as it sounds and the master dough is so versatile. I had one pound of dough left sitting in the fridge. It was probably in there for a little over two weeks and was coming on to its last legs. I dug around in the fridge and found some slices of ham, a little block of smoked Gouda, and a handful of asparagus spears. I rolled out the dough (no proofing!), laid out my filling, rolled it up and into the oven it went. After 25 minutes I had a very tasty and savory roll coming out of the oven with bubbling cheese and all. Makes for a quick and easy dinner with leftovers to look forward to tomorrow. For those who do not have the book, you can find the recipe for the master dough here. Just throw the recipe together (no kneading!) and keep the bucket of dough in your fridge for up to two weeks. You'll never have to buy expensive artisan breads again...it'll change your life.
