The day before Thanksgiving I didn’t have anything ready to go for review, so I decided why not crank out a loaf of bread? I used Lai Noodle, a product from Hi-Lai Foods of Taiwan. They’d just sent a ton of great samples and so I thought it would be interesting to try. Here we go!
Taiwanese Noodle Thanksgiving Bread!
Watch and enjoy!
- 5 packs Lai Noodle
- 1 apple
- green onions
- black sesame seed
- Cook and drain noodles from a single package.
- Add in a cup of water, then the sachets – only one Sichuan oil sachet and all the rest from 5 packs
- Add in a cup of flour
- Add in sesame seeds (a ton), chopped apple, and green onion, then noodles
- Add in another cup of flour and yeast on top.
- Set to MEDIUM crust on BASIC in your amazing bread machine
- I ended up repeatedly adding flour since the liquid sachets ended up being a lot.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added turkey, black pepper, and whole cranberry sauce. Bread came out delightfully moise. Apple chunks were good as well – and very frequent. As usual, the green onion was almost undetectable; it really shrivels up. I’m thinking of doing a loaf with an insane amount of green onion some time to see if quantity let’s it show up visually. Anyways, it was good – and the noodles stayed good too – you can see them in the bread! Very cool.
