So I was wandering through Williams Sonoma today as my reward for going to the dentist, when I found this Le Crueset set of a 4 quart dutch oven (cast iron) with 4 minis (16oz) dutch ovens (stoneware) on sale for $99! I totally don't need it, but I couldn't walk away at that price.
So once I had it home and started thinking how I would explain it to Mr Ecca, I was thinking the little ones could be great for mini-loaves of bread in the Bittman no-knead variety, but I'm wondering about how much dough I would put in each one. I'm not the greatest bread baker when not using the bread machine, so I stick with Ecca proof recipes.
Do I just divide it in quarters and see what happens, or would that be too much and create a mess? Has anyone tried something similar to this? I'm thinking the finished product would be rather good for some sandwiches, if I can make it.
