There’s nothing like fresh hot bread right out of the oven or right off the grill! What makes this bread totally the best is when you eat it HOT! Yes, get ready to toss it back in forth in your hands trying to cool it down just a bit, then take the big bites!
I can’t even begin to list all the ways you can use this bread. Dunk it in soup. Dip it in seasoned oils. Butter it and add some jam. Change up the flavors and add some spices to it before grilling. Serve as bread for a good ol’ fashioned pot roast with lots of broth and gravy. Slather whipped cream cheese on it and add some fresh fruit. It makes a wicked PBJ bread. Toast it with some cinnamon and sugar. The ideas go on and on.
Another thing about this bread. You can’t mess it up. Once you achieve the elastic feel, you have a great dough and you’re ready to go!
Sprinkle this homemade harissa on your bread and get a whole new palate experience!
- 5-6 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 Tbl. baking powder
- 1 tsp. sea salt
- 1/3 cup canola oil
- 1 1/2 cups water, lukewarm
- Cooking spray (canola)
- Finishing sea salt (optional)
- Grill heated to 350 to 400 degrees
- Put 3 1/2 cups of flour, baking powder and salt in a large mixing bowl and combine well. Add the oil and water and work into a thick gooey dough.
- Put half of the remaining flour on a large clean surface. Dump the dough on it, sprinkle some flour on top and begin kneading. Continue to sprinkle more of the remaining flour onto the surface and knead for at least 8-10 minutes.
- The dough should get more elastic and less sticky. If you need to add more flour, do so.
- Cut the dough into 12+ pieces. Take your hands and flatten out into randomly shaped pieces. Flatten them to about 1/4 inch thick. The thinner, the less cooking time.
- Coat the hot grill. Put several pieces on the grill and cook about 2 to 2 1/2 minutes. Check to see if there's any burning and if so, reduce the heat. Flip to the other side and cook another 2 to 2 1/2 minutes. When done, remove to a plate. Sprinkle with a few finishing sea salt flakes.
- Continue with all the dough that's flattened. Eat immediately! It's best hot!
