Healthy Sausage and Veggies Sheet Pan Dinner #Recipe

9:19 AM

3 cups luke-warm water
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 Tbsp. yeast
1/3 cup oil
1 Tbsp. salt
6 – 7 cups unbleached ground white wheat flour (You can use regular all-purpose flour with success as well. You will need more flour… closer to 8 cups, and it will make a softer, less-coarse bread.)
*opt. 1 Tbsp. vital wheat gluten (if using whole white wheat flour)
In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water and sugar. Let sit 10 minutes. Add the oil. Add the salt and flour (starting with 6 cups of flour). Mix all together. Knead the dough thoroughly until all ingredients are incorporated, and dough is smooth, elastic, very slightly sticky, and pulls away from the bowl (6-10 minutes). As you knead the dough, you may add more flour as needed, and repeat the process until dough reaches the desired consistency.
Cover the bowl of dough with a dish towel or plastic wrap and let rise until doubled (an hour or more depending on how warm your kitchen is.) You may speed up this process by placing the covered bowl inside the oven with the oven light on, and another bowl of warm water sitting on the lower rack.
Punch the dough down, divide and and form into 2 loaves. Place the dough in 2 greased bread pans. (I use 9″ pans.) Cover and let rise till the top of the dough is an inch or two above the bread pans.
Bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes. Remove the baked loaves from their pans immediately, and place on a cooling rack. Slice, and serve warm with butter and honey.
Store in an air-tight bag. Baked loaves AND bread dough freeze well.

Raise your hand if one of your New Year's resolutions was to lose weight? Yeah, me too. After having the surrogate baby last year, I lost 30-40 pounds, but then the holidays hit, and I still have some more to lose. So, I am back at it again this year, hoping to drop the rest of the weight, but I don't want to sacrifice taste to do it. This delicious and healthy sausage and veggies sheet pan recipe is tasty and simple to make. Try it out, and be sure to let me know what you think!
