Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 450°.

  • Note: Health experts tell us that over half of the calories we eat should come from complex carbohydrates--good news for those who love bread--and that we should consume 25 to 30 grams of fiber daily. You can get extra fiber by eating whole grain breads or breads made with high-fiber cereal.
