Needed bread for the freezer, so it was Italian this time. Me and DW were having chuck burgers & baked potatoes for dinner, so I made up some honey whole wheat buns and topped some of them with poppy seeds, sesame seeds, veggie flakes and fresh chopped onion. They were delish!

The things you make always look so good, what do you do to make the sesame seeds stick to the bread?

Do you work at a bakery, or something. All your breads look amazing. I can't bake at all.

The seeds stick to the egg wash I brush on the dough just before going in the oven. It's made using the whole egg, not just the white, and I add a pinch of salt when I mix it up.

I don't work in a bakery. This is a hobby I took up 5 years ago, and I've developed skills and techniques over time to get to this point. You should have seen some of the early failures.:eek: They were not pretty, but I moved on and learned from those mistakes. Oh, and they were all delicious, just not pretty!

If you want to learn to bake bread that looks like mine, do what I did...scour the Internet for videos showing different techniques, and try them out. Like hitting the bull's eye at 100 yards each and every time, it won't happen overnight, but if you stick with it you should improve with each batch of dough you make. The best part is that you can eat your mistakes.:D

Alton Brown had an episode entirely on bread making. I think I'll follow that for starters. His breads come out great looking like yours.
