Chow Down.

I've got some wheat germ in the fridge and I got to wondering if I could use it to make a healthier bread. Sure enough cooks.com has a recipe for it. Here it is.

Wheat Germ Bread:

4 c. warm water
3 pkgs. yeast
8 c. flour
1 c. wheat germ
1/4 c. honey
1/3 c. oil
4 tsp. salt

Combine yeast, water, and honey and let sit for five minutes. Add flour, salt, wheat germ and knead. Pour on oil and knead. Let rise until double; punch down. Cut into three equal parts. Roll out with a rolling pin, then roll like a jelly roll and put into three loaf pans. Bake at 325 degrees for 35 minutes. Remove and brush with butter.

Sounds easy enough, I'll let you know how it tastes when I bake some in a few days.
