Stone Hearth Breads Baking Schedule

I use Kretschmar meats from the Russ’s Market Delicatessen because they contain no MSG, no gluten and no binders or fillers. They slice it fresh as thick or as thin as you like! I like to add fresh avocado the last recipe above now & then. Have you tried one of these?
