Savory Bread

Despite America's obsession with sweet treats, baking isn't all about sugar. Savory breads like rosemary focaccia or buttery garlic knots deserve a second look, too.

F&W's guide to savory bread provides delicious recipes from loaded corn bread to airy spoon breads. You can even find ideas for savory cupcakes, such as a curried buttermilk cake filled with peas, carrots and potatoes, or a recipe that incorporates goat cheese-horseradish "frosting."

When preparing this dough for the Ratatouille Slab Pie, work in two batches for best results; instead of shaping the dough into disks, shape into 2 (5-inch) squares.

More Savory Bread


Baked overnight, this traditional Yemenite Sabbath bread transforms in the oven. White bread dough, coiled in a round, caramelizes during a long, low bake and stays moist thanks to a special thin metal baking tin with a tight-fitting lid referred to as a jachnun or kubaneh pan. The result is a complexly sweet bread with a light brown interior and tender, golden brown crust. A stock pot or large saucepan may also be used in place of a jachnun pan; see Note for more information.
