      Tin Can Sandwich Bread- a cool way to reuse a can and bake fresh bread!

      1 cup warm water
      1 tablespoon olive oil
      1 egg, slightly beaten
      salt to taste
      1/4 cup finely minced sun-dried tomato
      1/3 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
      1 cup whole wheat flour
      2 cups all purpose flour
      1 package (or 1 tablespoon) yeast

      Mix 1 c. all purpose flour, yeast and 1 c. warm water, mixing well until smooth, add remaining ingredients into the bowl all at once and mix to form a dough.

      Spray insides of two tall tomato-juice-size cans with non-stick cooking spray or carefully grease them.

      Divide dough in half in equal piece and place it inside the cans
      Cover cans with a clean dry dish towel and let rise for an hour

      Place cans in cold oven

      Turn oven on to 400 degrees and allow bread to heat inside oven for 15 minutes

      After 15 minutes, turn oven down to 350

      Let bake for 15 more minutes at 350

      Let cool and enjoy!

      Probably a 32-48 oz can. You can really use any size if you gauge it by allowing for your dough to triple in size. Usually you let it rise to double before you put it in the oven, but I know that my dough usually gains even more height when I bake it.

      So if you allow for the amount of dough you use to triple in size after baking, you should be fine.

      I have seen similar done with coffee cans. 😀 You can also do this when camping using a fire.

      The only tomato juice size cans I know of are really small like tomato paste cans….that does not seem realistic for this bread recipe

      Do you have to add the sun dried tomatoes and park cheese. On a very tight budget and those are not affordable at this time.

      I have not made this but I would say the tomato juice or V8 in the can in the juice aisle.

      This is definitely something to try over a fire. Thanks a million!

      Can you use flour other than whole wheat flour?

      Not the individual size tomato juice but the big ones that are about 10-12 inches tall. I buy this size when I’m making chili.

      I’m going to give this a try!

      They also have the tomato juice is the large size. I buy it where I get all other large size cans or bottles of juice for cooking with.

      For a fun gift for four people (give with homemade apple butter or jam) or sandwiches for wee ones, you can use four 16-oz veggie cans.
