Bread Machine

Dug out my bread machine yesterday but I don't have any favorite recipes for it.  I'd love to find a recipe (machine or by hand) for the bread they used to serve at Spinner McGee's Steakhouse in Erie.  It was dark brown (between rye and pumpernickel) and had grated veggies and herbs in it.  I've tried many times to duplicate it but never succeeded.  I'd also like to find a good sweet bread (something with fruit or choc chips, maybe?) to put in the machine at night and have ready in the morning for breakfast.

Here's one I have bookmarked to try...I think it needs some shredded cheddar, though...


Baked Potato Bread (bread machine)
rec.food.recipes/Edouard_Lagniappe (2000)
1 1/2 Pound Loaf

3/4 cup warm water
1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
1 tablespoon canola oil
3 tablespoons bacon bits
3 cups bread flour
1 1/2 tablespoons nonfat dry milk
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3 tablespoons potato flakes
3 tablespoons chives, freeze-dried
2 teaspoons yeast -- fast rise
-or-
3 teaspoons active dry yeast

Add ingredients according to particular bread machine. Bake using the white or rapid bake cycles.

This dough can be very dry so resist the urge to add water.
