    Jezski's Note:

    No fear...it's not as much work as it may seem. Lots of passive cooking time here. Great for hors-d'oeuvres with a little cheese spread, pate' or what-have-you! Terrific as bruschetta. This just may be the most-liked bread I make. A pre-shredded 3-cheese combination is also very good. I have no clue as to the provenance of this recipe, been making it for a while.

      I've been making this bread, sans the sugar, for about 3 years. It's the best cheese bread I have ever eaten. You can actually taste the cheese. I, like another reviewer, can make a meal of it. I love it for breakfast toasted and buttered. IMHO, no other cheese except Asiago will give you the great favor. I buy the wedge of Asiago at Walmart and can make two loaves from it. For me, nothing else is needed in this recipe. I cannot knead by hand any more but I make this in my KA with a dough hook and process for 9 minutes on the (2) setting once all ingredients are incorporated. Turns out beautifully.

      Very good recipe! I made several times. First time the cheese tasted too strong for me, second time I made with 3/4 cup of cheese and 3rd time made with 1/2 cup (50 gr) of cheese and was perfect for my taste. Today I tried with parmesan because I want send the recipe to some friends in Brazil, in some cities there is hard to find asiago cheese, so I tried with parmesan but didn't taste the same, was good but not excellent.

      Made in the ABM on the dough cycle mixing in all the cheese. Increased the pepper to 2 teaspoons and the sugar to 2 tablespoons ~ added 2 teaspoons lemon juice, 1/4 teaspon garlic powder, and 4 tablespoons vital wheat gluten. Topped the (slashed) second rise with 4 table-spoons asiago cheese ~ Baked in two 10-5/8 x 5-1/2 x 2-3/4 Pyrex loaf pans at 325 degrees for 30 minutes.
