Bagels taste great at any time of the day or night and can be made in a variety of different ways. So next time you’re craving a bagel, why not use your trusty bread machine to make some. Bread machines these days aren’t only used to make bread but also a variety of dishes, cakes, doughs and desserts.
Paesano is one of the most well-known types of Italian bread. This bread is made by allowing the yeast to fully rise over the course of a few hours. This is what makes Italian bread extremely moist and helps the bread to absorb better, perfect for soaking up olive oil and tomatoes from caprese salad.
The most difficult part of making dough would have to be the kneading process, but you can use your bread machine to do all the hard work for you. All you need to do is master the dough cycle on your bread machine. Even professional bakers find the process of kneading dough to be tedious.
