Don't you love summer?? I do.
I love these wrap breads, because I make turkey wraps, chicken wraps, and pb&j wraps for packed lunches. I hate spending 3 or 4 dollars on a package of wrap breads that are usually dry and cracking after a day or two. These breads are soft and chewy, and tend to disappear as you make them- so you may want to make a double batch!!
- 3 to 3 1/4 cup flour
- 1 cup boiling water
- 1/4 cup warm water
- 1/2 cup potato buds or flakes
- 1 1/4 tsp salt
- 2 Tb vegetable oil (I used olive oil)
- 1 tsp yeast
In the meantime, put the 1/4 cup warm water in the measuring cup and dissolve the yeast, and let it get a little foamy. Once that happens, add the oil.
In another bowl, whisk together the remaining 1 cup flour (you will use the extra 1/4 cup during kneading, if needed) (kneaded, needed...ha ha) and potato buds or flakes, and the salt.
Now put the flour/potato mixture, and the yeast mixture into the Kitchen Aid, put the dough hook on, and knead for about 4 or 5 minutes. This dough takes a little bit to come together, it looks a little slippery at first, but keep an eye on it and add more flour if you need to. The dough will be soft and slightly sticky though, so don't overdo it on the flour.
After the dough has risen, divide it into 8 equal pieces. Cover the pieces with Saran Wrap and let them rest for about 15 minutes. (They need their rest. They're tired. It is hard being dough.)
My current favorite wrap is a layer of turkey, some Lite Caesar dressing, chopped romaine, sliced tomatoes, and Swiss cheese. Mmmmmmmm...... I made a breakfast wrap the other day with scrambled eggs, feta, and tomatoes, that was good too!!!
Make a batch for your next packed lunch- if they make it that far!! My boys always grab a few when they're still warm and I am lucky to have any left!!
I hope you have some fun stuff planned for this summer!!
I got this recipe from http://www.kingarthurflour.com/ I love their stuff!!
