Rhodes White Bread - A Dairy-Free Possibility for Your Home

Are you looking for a bread which is dairy-free?  The kosher labeling, pareve and OU, adds even more comfort for those of us needing to avoid milk products.

Here is a possibility which may work for your family.  We are a dairy-free household and have been eating Rhodes rolls for years.    A friend recently suggested I try their loaf bread since our preferred brand was no longer an option.  

Smart Allergy~Friendly Education Review - Rhodes White Rolls

Serving freshly baked bread doesn't get any easier.  Place loaf in a loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray, let dough rise from 4 to 7 hours and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 20 - 25 minutes!  Absolutely delicious!

This bread has been a huge hit in our household.  We've eaten it with fresh soup, spaghetti and just simply slathered with jam and Earth Balance!
