There is so much to say about this picture . . .
What are those foods? Organic sirloin tip steak, gravy from the meat juices, grilled onions, beet greens, roasted red peppers, red beans and rice. And that beautiful roll? That contains my new favorite add-in items for bread – pumpernickel meal and teff. Neither one really makes any taste difference, but the body is much improved. We use these buns mostly for panini sandwiches, and they really hold up under the pressing.
When I make these rolls, I also make a focaccia. We use that for other bread uses, like toast for breakfast, open-faced sandwiches, mega-quick pretend pizza, garlic dinner bread, bread sticks, toast for tomato/cheese/avocado bread, to dunk in oil and vinegar, or for just snacking on in the afternoon, with or without butter and honey, depending on length of time before dinner.
