Cheddar Parmesan Herb bread
9 oz warm water
2 Tbs oil
2 Tbs sugar
1 tsp salt
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 Tbs yeast (or 1 packet – I use bulk)
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
2 Tbs dipping spices
Put first six ingredients in your bread machine in the order listed. Allow machine to run through the dough cycle only.
Remove dough from machine and place on oiled countertop. Roll dough into a large rectangle. Sprinkle cheeses and spices evenly across top, and roll up, jelly-roll style. Pinch edges to seal and place on greased cookie sheet to rise until almost doubled in size.
Bake in preheated 350* oven for about 20 minutes. You may need to cover the top with foil so it doesn’t get too dark while the inside finishes baking.
I made this stromboli-style, and everyone seemed to like it. The next time I make it, I’ll probably just dump the cheese and spices in with the rest of the bread ingredients. Not to make it easier (though it would really simplify it!), but because I think the flavor would be better with the herbs throughout the bread.
