Small, individual bread with a crusty outside and fluffy inside.
This was your original brown bag bread.
Getting sent to buy a quart of this was the most amazing thing ever. You went into the bakery empty handed and came out with a piping hot brown bag filled with hot bread just ready to be devoured. I know my mom sometimes made us buy extra because we just needed to eat hot hops in the car on the way home.
They disappeared as easily as they came in.
Making them at home is pretty easy too. And great if your family is small and a quart is way too much to have.
This was an easy mix and wait, as the usual bread recipe does.
But unlike the fry bake that we made a couple weeks back, this was not going to be fried. Instead after the first raise we needed to separate them into balls to raise again.
And once they have doubled in size, pop them in the oven for about 20 minutes.
And dive in...
I love hops with cheese.
Hot and piping, and the cheese starts to melt. Yummy. Just grab a glass of milk and enjoy!!
Perfect late night snack.
