French Bread with Olive Bruschetta

The Bread


  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
    1 1/2 teaspoons salt
    1  tablespoon Active Dry Yeast ( two regular packets)
    3 1/2 – 4 1/2 cups flour  ( normally about 4 cups)
  • Combine water, honey, salt and yeast. Let sit for 5-10 mins until there is a foam on top.

Knead in flour until no longer sticky.

Cover with a towel and let it sit for 20-25 mins.

bake for 15-20 mins.



  • 1 cup chopped black olives
  • 1 cup chopped green olives ( with or with pimento, I personally like it with them)
  • 1 cup chopped Kalamata olives
  • 1 fresh garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tbsp minced onion
  • 3 tbsp olive oil ( extra Virgin is best)
  • 1 tsp red wine vinegar ( optional )
  • juice from half of one lemon
  • fresh ground pepper
  • 1 – 2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
  • this recipe does not need salt

Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and fold them together gently, you can eat right away but it is better if it sits a few hours.

    I was looking at this recipe I couldn’t see how much honey to use.
    I’m looking all your recipes over and they all look good.
    I like how you write as well. Your sense of humor too.
