Fill with your favorite sandwich ingredients.  Or use it to make a fabulous Reuben or Rachel (turkey) sandwich (pictured above). See below for Rachel Sandwich recipe.


2-3/4 cups warm water (100° to 110°F)
3 envelopes Fleischmann's® Active Dry Yeast
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon Spice Islands® Caraway Seed
1 teaspoon Spice Islands® Fennel Seed
1 teaspoon freshly grated orange peel
2 tablespoons oil
1/4 cup molasses
1 cup rye flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
5-3/4 to 6-3/4 cups bread flour


Directions

Combine water and yeast in large mixer bowl; let rest 5 minutes.  Add brown sugar, salt, caraway seed, fennel seed, orange peel, oil, molasses, rye flour, whole wheat flour and 2 cups bread flour; beat with electric mixer on low for 30 seconds.  Beat on medium-high for 3 minutes.

Stir in enough remaining bread flour to make a soft dough.  Knead on lightly floured surface 8 to 10 minutes until smooth and elastic, adding additional flour if needed.  Shape into a ball.  Place in a greased bowl, turning once to coat.

Cover; let dough rise in a warm, draft-free place until double in size, about 1 hour.
Punch dough down and divide into 3 equal portions.  Form each into loaves.  Place in greased 9 x 5-inch pans.  Cover and let rise until double, about 45 to 60 minutes.
Bake in preheated 350°F oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until done.  Remove from pans immediately.  Cool on wire rack.

12 ounces thinly sliced turkey
