This bread threatened to take over the entire kitchen! I used a plain white bread recipe and added freeze-dried shallots, an egg, non-diastatic malt instead of sugar, and some potato flakes. The result is shown here. Fortunately it had enough body to support that huge dome that raised up as it baked.
The taste was fantastic and made delicious cheese bread topped with pepper cheese, crumbled bacon, with overlapping, thin tomato slices covering the surface. Perfect with a nice green salad for a late night supper.
