How to make it

  • DOUGH 1
  • Soften yeast in water.
  • Heat tomato sauce, butter, and ketchup and let cool to lukewarm. Add sugar, cloves, salt and yeast mixture to tomato mixture and mix in enough flour to make a soft but kneadable dough (or mix according to mixer directions).
  • Turn out and knead until smooth and elastic.
  • Oil and set aside to rise.
  • DOUGH 2
  • Soften yeast in 1/4 c water with sugar.
  • TO other 1 1/4 c water add butter until butter melts (you may need to microwave it and let cool to luke warm).
  • Add salt and yeast mixture
  • add flour until you get a soft, kneadable dough…
  • proceed as above.
  • Let balls of dough rise until double-about 1 1/2 hours.
  • punch down and knead lightly…
  • cut each ball of dough into 2 equal pieces.
  • Let rest 10 minutes.
  • Roll each ball out into a rectangle of equal sizes.
  • Place a tomato dough rectangle on top of a whole wheat rectangle and roll up tightly pinching dough together at bottom to seal.
  • Repeat with other loaf.
  • Let rise in greased bread pans for 1 hour or until double
  • Bake at 375 for30 minutes or until loaves sound hollow when tapped…Let cool if you can.

    Very impressive and super nice when toasted with a sharp cheddar as an open face sandwich. Shame to cover the swirl, but the flavor was a match made in heaven.

    I did not use a bread machine on this recipe. It looks to me like the dough was not kneaded enough..I don't know..I have never had trouble with this and I have been making it for years as written. :)

    I'm hand mixing and kneading this recipe. Hope it doesn't make a big difference rather than using a bread machine. I also seperated the flour in half for both doughs and added the salt to the flour I would be adding last so as not to kill the yeast.

    Didn't get as much oven spring as expected. Should have let the second rise go longer. Pics posted.

    Turned out heavy and chewy. I'm sure it must have been something I did.
