Comments: When people hear we’re having this soup for supper, they say, "Oh." But when they eat it, they say, "Actually, this is pretty good." Still, it doesn’t rate up there with, say, pizza, so I only make it occasionally. Wegmans had kale on sale, which was a good enough reason, I thought. Please note that the recipe serves more like 12, even though it says 9. You will love the Oatmeal Pan Bread, especially the easy technique for making break apart rolls. The original recipe made one 13×9 pan. By the way, if you ever want the original, non-doubled or -tripled recipe of any dish mentioned here, just say so in the comments and I will email it to you.

NOTES : Original recipe called for 3/4 cup of olive oil! I used 1
28 oz can of whole tomatoes, chopped instead of fresh
tomatoes. I forgot to put in the butter and it was still
good. I peeled the potatoes and use the French fry disk
instead of dicing the potatoes.

Oatmeal Pan Bread

Recipe By :Karen Bourne, Magrath, Alberta, Canada
Serving Size : 48 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Kosher Lowfat and Lovin’ It
Volume 4 Yeast Breads

Amount Measure Ingredient — Preparation Method
——– ———— ——————————–
4 cups boiling water
2 2/3 cups rolled oats
8 tablespoons butter — (1 stick)
12 2/3 cups flour — divided
1/4 cup yeast
2/3 cup sugar
5 1/3 teaspoons salt
1 1/3 cups warm water
3 eggs — lightly beaten

Combine boiling water, oats, and butter in a bowl; set aside to cool.

Put 5 1/3 cups of the flour in a very large bowl. Stir in yeast, sugar,
and salt. Mix in the warm water, oat mixture, and the eggs and beat
vigorously with an electric mixer.

Gradually add in the remainder of the flour by hand (between 5 1/3 and 7
1/3 cups). Knead until smooth and elastic–about 6 to 8 minutes.

Place in greased bowl, turning to grease top. Cover and let rise in warm
place till doubled–about 30 minutes.

Punch down and divide into 2 equal pieces. Press each one into a greased
15×10 pan. With a very sharp knife or the dough scraper, cut diagonal
lines about 1 1/2" apart completely through dough. Cover and let rise in
warm place till doubled–about 1 hour. Redefine pattern by gently poking
along cut lines with knife tip. Spray with cooking spray (?) or brush with
milk. Bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes.

""This beautiful. golden pan bread is especially good with a steaming
bowl of homemade soup. The oats give it a distinctive flavor.""
