With cold weather in full swing, it’s often necessary to fill up on carbs while you’re cozy under a blanket away from the harsh winter elements. How do you warm up your home while simultaneously making it smell amazing? By making homemade bread! While traditional loaves are perfect just how they are, it’s always fun to try new concoctions and experiment with new flavors and textures. Whether you’re looking to put together something savory or sweet, we’ve got some suggestions for you!

Pull Apart Pizza Bread

I’m not going to lie, I’m a sucker for foods that make me feel like I’m a kid again. While pizza bagels are normally my go-to for a quick taste of nostalgia, this pull apart pizza bread seems like it would be a pretty fair contender. Only needs to go in the oven for 30 minutes? It’ll be done and warmly sitting on my coffee table ready for my consumption before a delivery pizza would be able to reach my front door.

Normally there is a hearty breakfast egg involved when I’m dealing with a bread, bacon and cheese combo, but never have I ventured into the world of stuffed gooey goodness like this. I fear that I would eat this whole loaf of bread in one sitting (and not share). This salty masterpiece would be the perfect thing to accompany a nice lil’ salad.

This recipe is super simple and perfect to whip up when your pals are coming over to watch a sporting event. All you need is flour, butter, sugar, salt, baking powder, honey and a can of beer and ta-da! My mouth is watering thinking about making a fully loaded sandwich on this bread with pickles and potato chips of course!

Now even though my loyalty lies with savory foods, I can still definitely get down with some sweets once in a while. This cinnamon swirl bread is the perfect thing to have baked and ready to go in your kitchen for those lazy mornings. Grabbing a chunk of this to go along with your morning tea or coffee will definitely start your day off sweet!

Cream Cheese Filled Sweet Bread

I generally don’t like cream cheese based desserts (yes, cheesecake is one of my greatest enemies), but I feel like I should be more open to trying things more often before I ban them from my palate for life. This bread is jam packed with sugary sweets and is definitely an indulgence, but I’m totally intrigued.

This last bad boy seems like it will be a little piece of seasoned heaven. I can smell the warm clove scent wafting through the kitchen already! This potato based bread seems like it would be the equivalent of a sweet potato and marshmallow dish at Thanksgiving dinner. So, basically…yum! That maple glaze drizzle is calling my name!
