All Crust Bread!

Better Bread

in opposition to the crustless bread idea, i'd like to say that there are probably as many crust lovers as crust haters in the world; so here you go. i'm not talking about the soft, tastless brown stuff that surrounds sandwich bread. for all i know that could be just white bread dyed brown. no man, i'm talking about the thick, crunchy, buttery, bursting with flavor stuff you only get from quality, wood oven baked, sourdough etc. so my proposal is, simply put, an all crust bread. start with a ball of dough about the size of a marble and a roaring oven. baste with butter, bake 'til crusty, pull out, lay another layer of dough over it, rolled out as thin as a tortilla. baste with butter, put back in. continue this way until you have a whole loaf. i suspect know you good halfbakers are going to bone the hell out of this (no pun intended) but i just had to get it out there. bon appetit!?!

       So ... this is more than half-baked, right?   

       I can almost taste the acrylamide...

       I can't remember exactly what it was, or whose it was, but there was an idea here about making bread or pancakes or something in layers like this.   

       (edit) Oh, there it is - (link).

       I think this would be indistinguishable from pie crust.

       I think this would be indistinguishable from a recipe.

       It's a zwieback, minus the extra sugar. (God, how I've been yearning to use that word---"extra.")

       I would imagine that, as labor intensive as this process is, the bread would be hella expensive. However, it sounds like something I would like to be able to afford.

       The crusts are the best part. +

       Kinda like an overcooked croissant?   

       Heh, hate to hafta say it... BAKED!

       What if you made bread dough like normal, but cooked it in a loaf pan that was really shallow. You'd have to experiment with cooking times and temps but I bet you'd be able to get something that looks like the top crust of a loaf of bread minus all the bread underneath. Kind of like Muffin Tops, from that Seinfeld episode.

       Crust is poop.   

       Like the idea, though.
