After sampling every kind of artisan, bakery, $10 a pound specialty bread I had access to some came close, but alas none were truly as magnificent as meine beliebte kleine Brötchen (my beloved little hard crusted bread rolls.) Not to mention the price comparison was ridiculous. Sadly we pay obscene prices for one of the most basic culinary staples of western culture, because it's marketed to us as "Artisian" or "special" bakery bread. In my quest what I have come to understand about truly awesome bread is that it is about as simple of a culinary item to prepare as there ever was. Yet the art seems to have been lost in most of the standard American homes I've had chance to sample there home made version of bread. To that end I set out to prove that even the most redneck methods of bread preparation could best any weak squishy American store bought bread!
Thus the Redneck Stand Mixer was born!
