Tips for Making Savory Breads
Each recipe is different, but here are some general tips to keep in mind when making these dinner rolls and breads.
- Read the recipe thoroughly. Do this before you plan to bake so you can be sure to have all the ingredients and tools you need and also know how much time the recipe will take. Many bread recipes (especially yeast breads) have hands-off time that’s important to get the desired result. Review the ingredients and instructions to make sure you’re prepared.
- Measure accurately. This is always important in baking! The most mis-measured ingredient in baking is flour, and there’s usually quite a bit in savory breads. If you have a digital scale, measure by weight for the best accuracy. You can simulate that by spooning the flour lightly into the measuring cup. Then using a straight edge like the back of a knife to level off the top. Learn more: How to Measure Flour
- Make ahead. With few exceptions, breads will keep well at room temperature for at least a day or two and in the freezer even longer. So many are just as good thawed from frozen as they are fresh. Making your breads in advance is a great way to get ahead of your baking and cooking tasks before a holiday or special occasion. Be sure to check the recipe’s recommendations for storage.
- Customize! For breads that feature herbs and seasonings, you can change them to suit your tastes. Or make variations to complement the other flavors of your meal.
- Be wary of other substitutions. Baking is a science, and baking recipes aren’t always receptive to changes. Especially the first time you make a recipe, make it as written before attempting to make major changes.
