Bread with Bean Soup? Sign In/Join

Just finished bean soup from my Easter ham bone.
It made LOTS so I thought I'd take some to a friend who doesn't cook much. She has CP and it's difficult for her and she lives alone.

What kind of bread should I take with it?

Has anyone made Tuscan bread? I also have rye flour???

I would take something nice and crusty. Something that would hold up to dipping!

Hello Nance,
When we had bread with bean soup it was always a nice crusty French bread. Now if we have it I get the Pan Rustico from Trader Joe's. It is a sourdough and a bit chewy and if you leave it in the bread bag it will get rock hard.

Hey there PP: Is "rock hard" a good thing or a bad thing for that bread? Smile

We like cornbread with bean soups.

Yeah, cornbread would be my choice, but under the circumstances a nice crusty yeast bread might be best. It will still be very good.

We usually have cornbread but since you're taking it someplace, I would suggest a nice hard crusty loaf as well. You might take a stick of butter to go along with!

That was really sweet of you. I think corn muffins is a good option. They are already in individual servings.
