I have always been a huge fan of the large Italian bread loaves that you find at the supermarket check out stands that says “Fresh Baked” and is still warm and in the paper sleeves. I use it to make killer sub sandwiches and tasty garlic bread, and sometimes just to eat plain. At least I did. Now, thanks to another King Arthur Flour recipes, I can make it at home, and to me it tastes just like the bread from the store, just so much better. This supermarket Italian bread will be gone before it even cools if it is anything like how it goes in my family. It is easy to make, forgiving, and oh so tasty!
My husband loves it sprinkled with the sesame seeds before baking, and I often do that, but this time I did not have any available so I left them plain, and believe me, they are just as tasty this way too. Don’t be afraid make them either way. They will taste great!
