Vamoose You Pesky Vampires Bread Recipe

Vamoose You Pesky Vampires Bread Recipe
Although vampires feed year-round, they seem to be especially prevalent during the Halloween season. We, of course, have a responsibility to protect ourselves and our families from these scary pests. Garlic is a good start, and the following Vamoose You Pesky Vampires Bread is an excellent follow-up; great insurance if vampires are prevalent in your neighborhood. This yummy bread contains lots of garlic, as well as jalapeno peppers and cheddar jack cheese. It takes only about 10 minutes hands-on time to assemble the ingredients in the automatic bread machine (a little longer if making the old fashioned way in a mixing bowl), and when the dough is done, another 10-15 minutes to assemble the loaf. It's worth every hands-on minute – not only because the lucky tasters will be free from worry and risk (those vampires are dangerous, I'm told), but also because the yummy bread is perfect with soups and salads of every kind, especially hot from the oven.
If you don't have an automatic bread machine, one or more are generally available for under $10 at good-will and thrift stores, and some models are actually quite inexpensive to purchase new if you are so inclined and plan on making a lot of bread. I generally use mine only for making dough, and then shape it into loaves, rolls, bagels, or crusts according to my recipes. You can't go wrong with one of these wonder machines, especially if you hate to cook or don't have much time to spend in the kitchen,

If you traditionally serve chili on Halloween, this is a perfect accompaniment, and it is also great to add to the bread basket on your annual Halloween BOO-ffet.
