Dill Pickle Bread

This soft and moist white bread is made with pickle juice, giving it a unique and delicious flavor. It's perfect for sandwiches or eating plain!

By now it should come as no surprise to you that I love pickles!  I've told you before that my mom buys Mike and I a huge jar of pickles for Christmas each year.  We both often slice up a pickle and enjoy it for a snack.  And, when I talk about these pickles, I don't mean those little spears.  Oh no, we go for the full pickle!

A couple weeks ago, Mike suggested that I make pickle bread.  No I've made all kinds of breads, and a variety of pickle recipes, but I've never thought to combine the two.  I did a little looking around online and it doesn't seem to be a very popular concept...yet!  

The water in your traditional bread recipe is replaced with dill pickle juice.  A small amount of dill weed is added to the dough.  This dough baked up into a beautiful loaf of bread.  When I cut into it, I couldn't believe how soft it was.  One bite and I was hooked!  

I used this bread as the base for a delicious sandwich (which I'll be sharing with you in the near future!)  We also enjoyed the bread on its own.  I was surprised when two and three days later, the bread was just as fresh tasting as the day I made it.

If you're a fan of pickles, you'll want to make this bread!

Dill Pickle Bread

Makes 1 loaf

1-1/4 cups dill pickle juice, warmed to 110 degrees
2 teaspoons yeast
2 Tablespoons sugar
1 egg
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon dill weed
3 cups flour

1.  In the bowl of your stand mixer, combine the warm pickle juice, yeast, and sugar.  Stir gently and allow it to sit for 5 minutes, until the yeast blooms.

2.  Add the egg and olive oil and mix.

3.  Mix in the dill weed and flour to form a dough.

4.  Knead on medium speed for 5 minutes.

5.  Cover the dough and let it rise until doubled, about 1 hour.

6.  Remove the dough from the bowl and shape it into a loaf.  Place in a greased 9x5" bread pan.

7.  Allow the dough to rise again until doubled, about 1 hour.

8.  Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes, until golden brown.

Allow the bread to cool before removing from the pan and slicing.
