Do you love fresh baked bread but hate the mess? Well, you don’t have to let that stand in your way any longer.

Challah bread is a very unique but beautiful bread. It has a great flavor but is most easily identified by the braiding technique that gives it its unique style.

However, I will say that the braiding technique can be a little tricky. So if you are a beginner at baking bread then you might not want to start with this recipe.

6. Honey Buttermilk Bread

This milk bread just looks delicious! It looks kind of moist and easy to pull apart. I’m assuming from the milk content and technique.

So if you like a very moist bread then give this recipe a try. I doubt you’ll be sorry that you did.

19. Garlic Herb Pepperoni Bread

bread 19

If the name alone does not catch your attention then I’m not sure what will. It is a more savory bread option, obviously. But I can’t help but think how great this would go along with a meal.

However, what makes this bread even more satisfying is that it can be accomplished inside a bread machine. That’s right. No actual hands-on preparation is needed. Add the ingredients and hit a button. And you’re done!

20. Rosemary Tomato Parmesan Bread

bread 20

This is another one that the name alone should probably catch your attention. But if not, the pictures probably will.

So this bread is another savory option. I would imagine it would go great with Italian meals like spaghetti or chicken parmesan.

21. Gluten Free Beer Bread

bread 21

If you are someone that has a gluten allergy but has a love for the taste of beer then this bread will be right up your alley.

However, the greatest thing about this bread is that it is very versatile. You can transform it into a loaf, dinner rolls, or even hamburger buns and it would still taste wonderful.

22. Crusty French Bread

Crusty French Bread

I am personally a huge fan of French bread. I love how frugal it is to make. And I also love how versatile it is. French bread can be used for sandwiches, with soups, or even to be eaten alone with herbs and butter.

But this recipe is even better because it makes a crusty French bread. The crust holds up well to any recipe or form you choose to use it in.

23. Artichoke Dip Stuffed Bread

Artichoke Dip Stuffed BRead

This recipe would make a great appetizer or just a snack. I keep seeing it as a treat during football season.

But however you choose to serve it, just realize the ingredients are simple, the recipe itself is simple, and it looks delicious. That adds up to a score in my book.

24. Cheddar Jalapeno Buttermilk Bread

bread 24

Okay, if buttermilk bread did not sound good to you from the start I’m really confused. But if jalapeno cheddar buttermilk bread doesn’t sound good, I’m flabbergasted! Buttermilk has a way of making things moist and delectable.

But jalapeno cheddar takes things to whole new savory, spicy level. So I dare say, if you don’t give this recipe a try you’ll be missing out.

25. Banana Bread

bread 25

If you were to ask me what my favorite, easiest, most frugal dessert is banana bread would be it. I mean, it is so easy to make, and I also love the fact that it enables you to utilize something that otherwise you’d probably have to toss.

So when your bananas start to become a little too ripe, don’t toss them. Oh no, turn them into a simple dessert that will rock your taste buds.

26. Apple Fritter Bread

Apple Fritter Bread

When I think of apple fritters I think of two things. The first being The Apple Barn in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. The second being my grandfather. The Apple Barn makes the best apple fritters I’ve ever tasted. While my grandfather always loved eating them!

So needless to say, this recipe is special to me because of the fond memories. If you aren’t near Pigeon Forge don’t worry, make this recipe to hold you over until you can get there so you can make your own memories.

27. Glazed Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Bread

So if you love the taste of apple and cinnamon with some glaze thrown in the mix then you are heading in the right direction with this recipe.

28. Easy 100% Whole Wheat Sandwich Bread

Whole Wheat Sandwich Bread

That is a long title with a lot of ‘oomph’ behind it. I am personally a huge fan of whole wheat bread. Though, I know now doctors say it has to be 100% whole grain to be super healthy for diabetics and people with other illnesses.

But I grew up in the time when whole wheat was thought to be the healthiest and therefore, was what I was accustomed to for sandwich bread. So when I saw this recipe, it was something I definitely wanted to give a try.

29. Easy Focaccia Bread With Herbs

bread 29

Are you a fan of focaccia bread? Well, I am. If you haven’t noticed I make a lot of memories around food. This recipe actually takes me back to my younger days when I worked in the restaurant business. We used focaccia for a few recipes and it was always delicious.

So I like this recipe because that means I can try to duplicate some recipes that I haven’t had in years. That is awesome and I’m sure it will be tasty too!

30. Mozzarella Parmesan Buttermilk Quick Bread

Mozzarella Parmesan Buttermilk Quick Bread

Okay, so you like the idea of baking fresh bread. It is handy and frugal, but you don’t have the time to spend hours on end baking bread.

Well, with this recipe you won’t have to. It is a quick bread that is savory, delicious, and all yours in an hour and ten minutes.

31. Potato Bread

bread 31

Potato bread reminds me of my mom and great grandmother. Both of them made potato bread their preference when making sandwiches.

So now when I see it, my thoughts turn to them. But besides the fond memories, it also just looks delicious. You can’t help but crave a piece by just looking at a picture of it.

32. Irish Soda Bread

Irish-Soda-Bread-FB

If you have few ingredients in your home, you can still make this bread. It requires buttermilk, flour, and baking soda along with a few other basic ingredients.

But what also is different about this bread is that it is made in a circular form. It kind of reminds me of cornbread. So why not sub this out for your cornbread next time. It would be a nice change.

33. Snickerdoodle Loaf

Snickerdoodle Loaf

So I’ll be honest. I have a huge weakness for baked goods. They are good and cheap to make. And they make my house smell wonderful!

And needless to say if I love baked goods, then I love cookies….especially snickerdoodle cookies. So when you can have that in a loaf of bread that requires even less effort to create something delicious, oh my, I’m there.

34. Lemon Raspberry Loaf Bread

bread 34

This loaf of bread looks good and honestly, I’m not a big fan of lemon. But I do love raspberry.

However, I know a lot of people are huge fans of lemon flavored desserts. So if you are in the category then you will probably love this recipe.

35. Lemon Blueberry Loaf Bread

bread 35

Again, I’m not a huge fan of lemon (besides lemonade) but everyone else in my household loves lemon everything.

So if you are like them and love all things lemon then you must try this recipe. It will surely strike your fancy.

36. Buttermilk Biscuits With Sausage Gravy

Buttermilk Biscuits With Sausage Gravy

Any true southerner knows that this meal is not just a breakfast food. Oh no, it goes for lunch and dinner too.

So needless to say it had to find its way in this article because my husband and children would disown me if I didn’t. I do believe they’d eat homemade biscuits and gravy every day of their life if I’d make it.

37. Triple Chocolate Bread

bread 37

This bread could seriously cause death by chocolate (okay, so I’m not that serious.) But it does look to be rich.

So if you are a chocoholic (like me) then you’ll love this. If not, we can still be friends. After all, that would just mean more for me.

38. Fig Bread

Fig Bread

So for those that aren’t 100% positive about their impression of figs I’m going to encourage you to try this bread before you make up your mind.

Why? Because the ingredients alone look sublime and this bread looks more like an extremely moist cake. And you will be hard pressed to get me to turn my back on cake.

39. Homemade Naan

bread 39

If you are unfamiliar with naan it is a frugal, simple bread that cooks in a skillet. It is great with some oil and herbs.

So if you are looking for a more simple type of bread to go with supper or lunch then give this bread a try. It does still take a couple of hours to make but is something I deem worth the time.

40. Bacon Cheese Ranch Pull Apart Bread

bread 40

The words bacon, cheese, ranch, and pull apart bread should be enough to make this bread worth any amount of effort it takes to make it.

So once again, you can tell I have an extreme weakness for anything that is cheesy with bacon and ranch. The fact that this bread looks savory and moist is just an added bonus.

41. Croissants

Croissants

I’ll be straight with you. Croissants are not an easy bread to make homemade. Why do you think so many people buy the break and bake kind from the grocery?

But they are good! And totally worth the effort in my opinion. But I also love ham and cheese croissants for breakfast. So I’m a little bias.

42. Carrot Cake Zucchini Bread

Carrot Cake Zucchini Bread

I need to start off by letting you know upfront that this bread also comes with a topping of cream cheese frosting.

So if that doesn’t make you want to eat your vegetables in this loaf of bread, I don’t know what will. Because it sure looks delicious.

43. Sweet Buttermilk Cornbread

bread 43

I am a huge plan of sweet cornbread. The fact that this recipe calls for buttermilk will make it that much moister.

So if you like cornbread to go along with your pintos and chili then give this recipe a try. It will add a moist and sweet note to finish your meal.

44. Artisan Bread

Artisan Bread

Artisan bread is a very easy bread to make. If you are a beginner at bread making then you might want to begin with this recipe.

But I also love this bread, again, because of its circular shape. It has a family feel to it. And I love those type of loaves because then you don’t have cut them. Everyone can just grab a piece off and enjoy.

45. Hawaiian Bread

Hawaiian Bread

I am a huge fan of Hawaiian bread. I love it in loaf and roll form. It is just a sweeter type of bread that goes great with just about anything.

But my favorite dish to put with Hawaiian bread is barbecue. It has a way of adding a special touch to that meal. So if you love to barbecue or just a sweeter dinner bread then this bread is for you.

Well, there you have it, friends.
