Rye Bread recipes
Eastern Europeans, especially Poles, Lithuanians, Russians, Ukrainians and Slovaks, love rye bread. The coarser and darker, the better. There's a staggering variety of ryes, from sourdoughs to buttermilks to cracked rye meal breads. One could conceivably enjoy a different rye bread every day of the week.
I knew I wanted to make a breakfast bread for Breakfast Week, and for inspiration I had three very different things in mind: my grandmother's English muffin toasting bread, my favorite thin dark 100% rye made by Rudolf's Bakery, and the fruity, nutty, seediness of the "truly everything" bagels I make.
