Discussion:

  • Try “European Bakery” Ukrainian Rye or Barley Bread in this recipe – just delicious and wheat free!
  • You may want to reserve some of the milk in step 6.  The bread mixture should be fully covered and wet, but milk should not be pourable after soaking.
  • This dish makes a perfect ‘plate’ when served with a green salad, grilled or sautéed veggies – enjoy!
