Savory Sage and Thyme Brioche Loaves

With just enough black pepper to make it spicy and herbs and duck fat to add richness, this bread is the epitome of savory and delicious. Duck fat can be found at specialty stores, but you can substitute chicken or turkey fat as well. Make sure to purchase active dry yeast (as opposed to rapid rise) for this recipe. We love the idea of a slice or two smothered in gravy, using this bread for a upgraded turkey sandwich, or using it to make a grilled cheese that's out-of-this-world.

Golden Raisin and Honey Challah

This traditionally Jewish bread requires 2 rising times, but the rich anf fluffy result is definitely worth it. Toast it, top it with jam, or use leftovers in French toast. You can also use dark raisins, dried cranberries, or omit the raisins completely, if desired. Divide the dough into 3 pieces for easier braiding.
