Need help with par baking
I've been recruited to bake for our church Thanksgiving feast. They asked me to bake a loaf for each table, which will only end up being 10 or 12. I thought I'd use my dutch ovens to do the baking, as I'm very comfortable with this way of doing it (15 min covered, 20 min uncovered basic white)
I was thinking I could do this over a couple of days by par baking the loaves and freezing them. Then, on the day of the dinner, put them all on baking sheets and finish them off. I have, of course my home oven to work with. Then, at the church I have two ovens. Am I right in this thinking?
So, how would you suggest I go about doing it? I was thinking of taking them out after the 15 minute covered bake. Then when I go to rebake them, bringing them all to room temperature first and spritzing them with a little salt water. Then toss them into a preheated 500 degree oven.
What are your thoughts?
