Portuguese Bread recipe search
I'm hoping someone can help me find a recipe for a bread I know as Porguguese Bread. I've serched for it and I'll I've found is recipes for Portuguese Sweet Bread.
The bread I had was white bread that had a hard bottom with a chewy crust and was usually a free form loaf. The bread itself was similar in texture and moisture to rye bread. I had it in northern New Jersey, but I was just discussing it with my roommate who also ate it in Philidelphia.
Does anyone know what I'm describing and can maybe point me in a direction of a recipe? Maybe this bread has another name?
Thanks a lot for any help!
