How to Serve Sourdough Bread

Sourdough bread, tangy and light on the inside with a crisp and crunchy crust, complements many different meals. Add sourdough bread alongside soups and stews to balance the savoury flavours of your down-home entrée. Sourdough bread also accompanies meats, poultry and eggs deliciously. Serve warm and tender sourdough bread with creamy butter to round out a meal with simple style.

  1. 1

    Cool sourdough bread on a cooling rack for several hours -- until the bread is completely cool.

  2. 2

    Transfer the bread to a cutting board.

  3. 3

    Slice sourdough bread into thick slices while it is cool -- at least 1-inch thick. Slicing warm sourdough bread creates an unattractive crust.

  4. 4

    Tear off a sheet of aluminium foil large enough to wrap up the sliced loaf of sourdough bread.

  5. 5

    Place the bread into the centre of the aluminium foil and wrap up the bread, leaving a small opening in the foil to allow steam to escape. This will keep the sourdough crust crispy and crunchy.

  6. 6

    Preheat the oven to 121 degrees Celsius.

  7. 7

    Place the bread into the oven and allow it to warm for about 10 to 15 minutes.

  8. 8

    Remove the bread from the oven and unwrap it.

  9. 9

    Transfer the bread from the aluminium foil to a breadbasket lined with a cloth napkin. Wrap the napkin around the bread, and serve the bread with butter while it is warm.
