My family loves fresh artisan breads from the bakery but it can get very expensive. We also love hot, fresh from the oven bread but I don’t take time often enough to bake it for them. Now I can make fresh Artisan breads at home with the new Pillsbury Artisan Bread Mixes in 40 minutes or less. I am so excited!
I received product and a promotional item to facilitate this post.
Pillsbury Artisan Bread Mixes Review
The Pillsbury Artisan Bread Mixes currently comes in 3 flavors: Country White, Garlic & Herb, and Parmesan & Basil. Each takes just 40 minutes or less to prepare. I was able to review the Country White and Garlic & Herb varieties.
The Garlic & Herb Bread is so flavorful. It tastes like a gourmet artisan bread from a bakery. I took less than 40 minutes from start to finish to have hot out of the oven bread! For the Garlic and Herb Bread above, I used a new bread rising basket to give it an European feel with the basket coil design and flour dusty on the top. I baked the bread right on a cookie sheet, not in a loaf pan – you can do either with Pillsbury Artisan Bread Mixes, depending on the look you want your bread. It doesn’t look like any ordinary bread, nor does it taste like it. My husband and I were blown away by how flavorful this bread is!
The Pillsbury Artisan Bread Mixes are versatile too. Prepare straight from the box for delicious artisan bread or use as pizza crust, bread sticks, and more. Or, if you are like me, you can customize the breads like I did for this Easy Christmas Cherry Nut Bread.
I made this Easy Christmas Cherry Nut Bread recipe by simply add 1 jar of maraschino cherries and 1/2 cup of nuts to the Country White Bread mix. Easy Peasy!
It taste delicious with the cherries and walnuts – not too sweet like most Christmas breads. The cherries are enough to give it a pop of sweetness and flavor to make it extra special.
