Baking Bread with Whey

 I have a bad habit, I frequent way too many Amish markets.  And I always come away with sausages and cheese.  There is something about these markets that I find irresistible.  I realized the other day that I needed to do something with my stash.  So, I made a meat and cheese tray for the kids at the community center.

I had just made some cheese and had a big jar of whey so I decided to bake them some bread as well.  You can use whey as a substitute for the liquid in any bread recipe.
 I made a honey whole wheat dough.

 It made very nice loaves.

I sliced them and wrapped them and put them on the cracker/pretzel platter I took to the kids.  I took along a couple jars of peanut butter figuring that there would be some kids that wouldn't touch the meat and cheese platter with a 10 foot pole. Everything ended up being eaten!  Those kids sure are hungry.


What a wonderful thing to do for the children. The tray looks yummy. Perfect for hungry kids.

Have you ever considered Amish Anonymous? Seriously though, what a magnificent platter -- no wonder the kids enjoyed it all!

Those kids know good stuff when they see it! your such a sweetie! I would love to have that platter in front of me right nowww,lol!
That must have been a happy surprise to them :-) Everything looks delicious!

I almost always use whey when baking bread but I have to admit that I mostly buy it, I don't make cheese that often.

Have a great day!
A treat for a KING! What a nice thing to do! I mean REALLY nice! Not candy or cupcakes..(though that would be grand..but healthy treats!)
