Egg Salad Sandwich on The Yellow Brick Road

 Have you traveled yet to watch the new movie, Oz The Great And Powerful?

Remember watching as a child,  how Dorothy travels the path of The Yellow Brick Road to get to the Emerald City?

Ah, good times!  Well, recently dragging taking the boys to go out for family night and enjoying the new movie… got my mind thinking.  I originally planned on making a cinnamon swirl bread the next day.  But, decided to take a detour and swirl the bread with a golden ribbon of dough instead!

I relied on my favorite basic white bread recipe.  While making the dough, follow all the directions on the recipe.  Except, before you knead the dough for 8-10 minutes…  split the dough in half.  One half of the dough you knead by hand.  (unless by chance, you have two kitchen aids!)  The other half, put into the mixer with a dough hook and 2 teaspoons of (liquid) yellow food coloring.  After the full 10 minutes of kneading the dough, it will be yellow all the way through!

Cover and let the dough rise separately for about an hour.

After the rising process, roll out each piece of dough on a flat surface.  Put the yellow onto the white and start rolling up!

Put the seam side facing down into an already greased bread loaf pan.  Cover and let rise for another hour.  (*Note:  I like to sit the dough inside the microwave with hot water, to rise.  It keeps it nice and warm with no cold drafts.)

After the dough has risen to a size of a loaf of bread, put into a preheated oven of 375 degrees for 30-35 minutes.  (*Tip: When you tap on the top of the loaf and it sounds hollow, it means the bread is done in the middle.)  Let the bread cool before cutting.

While the bread is baking, you can start your Egg Salad (with bacon!) for your sandwiches!

All you’ll need to make this easy egg salad is 6 hard boiled eggs, cut; 1 pound of crispy bacon; 1 cup of mayonnaise; 1 tablespoon of dill weed; onion powder and salt & pepper.

  20. I am excited to enjoy this bread for a youth activity tonight! I just noticed that the basic bread recipe makes two loaves, but it looks like when you do it this way it is just one large loaf, is that correct? So i would need to double it for two?

    • Melissa, so sorry I’ve been away all day. I was unable to answer you earlier. If you made it for tonight, I hope it already turned out for you! But, if you haven’t made this yet… yes, this recipe makes two loaves. No need to double the recipe. Have fun making it. You could use any fun color. Hope you had a great time at your youth activity tonight! (=
