Garden Pepper Bread

Serves: 30
Total Calories: 124


2 tablespoons margarine or butter
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/3 cup chopped red bell pepper
1/3 cup chopped green bell peppers
7 to 8 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 to 1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
2 packages active dry yeast
1 cup milk
3/4 cup water
1/3 cup margarine or butter
6 egg whites or 3 whole eggs


Melt 2 tablespoons margarine in small skillet over medium heat. Add onion and bell peppers cook 4 to 5 minutes or until vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally. Set aside.

In large bowl, combine 2 cups flour, sugar, salt, pepper and yeast blend well. In small saucepan, heat milk, water and 1/3 cup margarine until very warm (120 to 130°F.). Add warm liquid to flour mixture. Blend at low speed until moistened beat 3 minutes at medium speed. Add egg whites, cooked vegetable mixture and 1 cup flour beat at medium speed 3 minutes. By hand, stir in an additional 3 to 3 1/2 cups flour to make a stiff dough.

On floured surface, knead in remaining 1 to 1 1/2 cups flour until dough is smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes. (Dough will be slightly sticky.) Place dough in greased bowl cover loosely with plastic wrap and cloth towel. Let rise in warm place (80 to 85°F.) until light and doubled in size, about 40 minutes.

Grease two 9 x 5- or three 8 x 4-inch loaf pans. Punch down dough several times to remove all air bubbles. Divide dough in half shape into loaves. Place in greased pans. Cover with greased plastic wrap and cloth towel let rise in warm place until light and doubled in size, about 40 minutes.

Heat oven to 375°F. Uncover dough. Bake 30 to 40 minutes or until loaves are deep golden brown and sound hollow when lightly tapped. Cover with foil during last 10 minutes of baking if necessary to avoid excessive browning. Immediately remove from pans cool on wire racks.
