Wild Rice and Oat Bran Bread
Wild rice adds nutty flavor and chewy texture to this healthful bread-machine load of bread. Serve it as a side with soup or use it to make sandwiches.
Tip: To prepare 3/4 cup cooked wild rice: bring 3/4 cup water and 1/4 cup uncooked wild rice to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer about 40 minutes or until wild rice is tender. Drain well.
Equipment: Bread Machine Directions: Add the ingredients to 1-1/2-pound loaf bread machine according to the manufacturer's directions, except use 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour and 1-1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast or bread machine yeast. If available, select the whole grain cycle, check dough and, if necessary, add more bread flour or milk, 1 teaspoon at a time, to make a dough that forms a smooth ball. Remove hot bread from machine as soon as it is done. Cool on a wire rack.
