Bread MixesEnglish Muffin Bread Mix
is loaded with raisins and is made with premium cinnamon.

Here's another great English muffin bread with the trademark texture, moist crumb, and rich taste of English muffins all in the convenience of a loaf. You will enjoy the crunch and open crumb of English muffin bread--loaded with cinnamon and plump raisins.

If you make this bread in your bread machine, water temperature is critical. Please use a thermometer to measure water at exactly 80 degrees. A ten degree difference in water temperature can double the growth rate of the yeast. These bread mixes are satisfaction guaranteed when you use a thermometer.

Other Recipes, Tips and Suggestions
Hello Nancy, Kitties, and Nancylanders! Fae in N.C. was asking about a salt-free seasoning. I use Salt-Free Spike on my roasted potatoes and love it. Here's a link to it on the Walmart site, just so you can see what the jar looks like. I've found it at my local grocery, so yours might have it too.

I noticed on that same Walmart page that they also have Chef Paul Prudhomme's Magic Salt Free Seasoning. I haven't tried this and haven't seen it locally, but others in this recipe group have mentioned how good his Magic Seasonings are, so I wouldn't hesitate to try that if you come across it.

Best of luck with your salt-free diet. I'm sure it won't be as difficult as you're thinking. A main component will be to look for "no salt added" on the labels of the canned goods you buy. Luckily, they're readily available these days.

Pizza Puffs Recipe

1 sheet frozen puff pastry; thawed
1 can tomato sauce (can use the rest for dipping)
fresh mozzarella; sliced
12 fresh basil leaves

Optional: Mushrooms, jalapeno, sun dried tomatoes,Olives, what ever fits.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Using a cookie cutter, glass jar or small bowl, press down into the thawed pastry dough so you cut round circles from the puff pastry. (You can also just cut the puff pastry dough into 4 squares.) Cut the puff pastry on wax paper or foil so it’s easier to pick up.
To assemble: spread some tomato sauce on the pastry dough, lay down the pepperonis (if using), then the mozzarella and top that with a few leaves of basil.

Bring together each end and pin with a toothpick (to ensure the puff stays closed while baking).

Bake for about 15-20 minutes or until lightly golden. Sprinkle on more basil if desired and serve.
