“I have had this recipe for years. I think I got it out of Women's Day magazine. It is quite different than the usual shredded wheat bread and has long been one of our favorites. We really like it with Pasta.”
2hrs 30mins
2 loaves

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup milk
  • 14 cup margarine
  • 14 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 0.5 (5/8 ounce) envelope Italian salad dressing mix
  • 3 large shredded wheat biscuits, crumbled
  • 2 teaspoons yeast (1 packet)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups flour


  1. In a medium saucepan heat milk and margarine until hot but not scalded.
  2. In large bowl, mix sugar, salt, dressing mix and shredded wheat. Stir in milk mixture.
  3. When lukewarm, stir in yeast. Stir in egg, then flour; mixing well.
  4. Cover with a damp towel; let rise in a warm draft free place until double, about 1 hour.
  5. Punch down; knead 1 minute on a floured board.
  6. Cut in half. Shape each half into a long rolled loaf and place on greased cookie sheets.
  7. With a sharp knife cut several 1/2 inch deep gashes across the top. Cover with a damp towel and let rise in a warm, draft free place until double, about 1 hour longer.
  8. Bake in a preheated 350*F oven for 30 minutes, or until loaves sound hollow when tapped on bottom. Cool on racks and serve warm or cold. It's good either way!
