The method is very similar to the recipe of the leavened bread.
Mix water, salt, and leaven, add the special ingredients, then add the flour and yeast. Knead in the same way.
When shaping you can :
Make a 1 kg loaf Cut the dough into lumps of 100 g to make small rolls or baps. If they are for a meal where you will serve several kinds, cut into lumps of 60/70 gr. Note:
For the best way to knead, see:
A few tips for effective kneading at home
90 g of Comté, diced small 90 g Morteau sausage cooked and diced small. 3 tablespoons walnut oil
And incorporate this mixture in the appropriate stage (see above). Make into small round baps rather than in long rolls.
Bread with bacon and sesame
Cook in a frying pan, with a tablespoon of olive oil
125 g small pieces smoked bacon
When cooked add
Incorporate this mix, including cooking fat, at the appropriate stage (see above).
10g linseeds 10g black linseeds 10g sunflower seed 10g white sesame seeds 10g brown sesame seeds 10g millet 10g pumpkin seeds 3 tablespoons sesame oil
And incorporate this mix at the appropriate stage (see above). Then add the 50g flour and a mix of 5 toasted grains (corn, rolled oats, rye, barley and rice) available in organic stores.

150g chestnut flour sieved 400g white flour

Nothing else bread
This bread got this funny name because it's so filling it can be eaten on its own. It's Nicolas's original idea and name.
To make it, dice small and mix together:
120g Comté 120g Morteau sausage 120g onion, chopped the day before and soaked overnight in: 200g water which will be used to make the bread (note: it's not the usual quantity of water). 120g potatoes, parboiled in salted water 100g coarsely chopped walnuts or 50g sesame seeds 4 tablespoons walnut oil
And incorporate this mixture at the appropriate stage (see above). Texture is a little strange to knead and work, and the bread does not rise much, but it's delicious to eat just on its own.
Incorporate at the appropriate stage (see above)
1 tablespoon curry powder 3 tablespoons groundnut oil Raw, plain (unsalted if possible) and coarsely chopped: 50 cashew nut gr 50 pecan nuts gr 50g Brazil nuts
This bread, with its yellow color and aroma is surprising, it goes very well with spicy food. You can also toast it to eat with
