  • 1 Measure carefully, placing all ingredients except nuts in bread machine pan in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Add nuts at the Raisin/Nut signal or 5 to 10 minutes before last kneading cycle ends.
  • 2 Select Basic/White cycle. Use Medium or Light crust color. Do not use delay cycle. Remove baked bread from pan, and cool on wire rack.

Expert Tips

If your bread machine doesn't have a Raisin/Nut signal, add the nuts 5 to 10 minutes before the last kneading cycle ends. Check your bread machine's use-and-care book to find out how long the last cycle runs.

This nutty oatmeal bread makes a fabulous Santa Fe Meat Loaf Sandwich: Spread tomato jam or your favorite salsa on 2 slices of bread. Layer slices of cold meat loaf, Monterey Jack cheese, canned chopped green chilies, avocado slices and shredded lettuce on one slice. Add the other slice. It has a wonderfully rich, zippy flavor.

Use your imagination when cutting bread machine loaves. Triangles, chunks and fingerlike strips are interesting shapes that can also stretch the number of servings.
