1 1/4 cups water
2 tablespoons molasses

2/3 cup cooked wild rice
1 1/2 teaspoons dried thyme leaves
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 3/4 teaspoons bread machine or quick active dry yeast
3/4 cup chopped unpeeled cooking apple

Success Tip: If your bread machine doesn't have a Raisin/Nut signal, add the apple 5 to 10 minutes before the last kneading cycle ends. Check your bread machine's use-and-care book to find out how long the last cycle runs.

Rice, such as brown or basmati, can be used instead of the wild rice. Or if you have several types of leftover cooked rice, mix them together for the amount needed in the recipe. This bread is also great when making stuffing.

Layer some fresh turkey, spicy mustard, lettuce and tomato in between thick slices of this bread. You can't find a better sandwich!
