At this time of the year I always get sentimental and miss my family from Europe. Growing up we had so many great holiday traditions, and I wish we had family around us to celebrate the holidays with. When I miss my family and friends in Europe (and around the world), I always try to cook or bake something European. Last week I used my last rye bread mix from Europe, and I sure hope I will soon get more relatives coming to visit from Europe. Growing up, we used European rye bread instead of white bread, and warm homemade rye bread is fantastic.
I have yet to find a great and affordable rye bread mix in my local area, but I know Ikea sells a ridiculous expensive mix. Now, of course I could try to make it from scratch, but I do not have the courage, and even then the ingredients are expensive.
I am hoping that ALDI will have exactly what I am looking for, but I have yet to go to one of the new stores in South Florida.
All I do with the rye bread mix is mix it up with some water and dry yeast. Put it in the oven, and an hour later we are in for a treat.
There are many ways to serve rye bread, but I am going to share a few with all of you.
|Egg and tomato on rye – Frikadeller on Rye|
|Warm rye bread with Nutella – yummy!|
|Rye bread with crisp lettuce, cherry tomatoes, egg and red onion.|
Have you ever tried Rye bread? If so, what is your favorite topping?
