Ummm. . . Tomato Basil Bread Recipe

Everyone loves soft, warm homemade bread, no doubt about that!
Rather than your regular every day bread, how about trying some Tomato Basil bread!  Umm!

It looks so pretty not to mention how delish it is!

Just start with your fav basic white bread recipe.
If you don't have one you can use mine!
3oz warm water
1/2 tsp. active dry yeast
3oz warm milk
1Tbsp. melted butter
2Tbsp. sugar
1tsp. salt
2C white bread flour

Now here is the special ingredient. . . 1/4 C of sundried  tomato pesto!
{or more if you want it really tomatoey }
If you cant find any sundried tomato pesto {I got it at Walmart} then here is plan b - just throw some regular pesto and some sundried tomatoes in the blender. . . or plan c - sundried tomatoes, basil, olive oil and maybe a little salt into a blender.

Add your sundried tomato pesto into your bread and kneed well.  Let it rise til about double its size then kneed again and form into a cute little bread ball, or stick it into a loaf pan.
Let it rise again til about double its size.
 Once its sufficiently risen, bake at 350 til the crust is lightly brown.
 Ummm. . . smells good right?!
Now slice that baby up and your fam will be so impressed by your fancy, gourmet bread!

Its so pretty and tinted slightly red, with a little piece of tomato scattered here and there.
Very yummy, a total pleaser for the crowd as well your taste buds!

{PS - this recipe makes a one pound loaf}
