My family LOVES asiago cheese. I tried this recipe today and had rave reviews!! I sent a loaf over to my neighbor who also loves asiago cheese-she LOVED it!!! It was a very nice dough to work with. The only thing I did differently was to use an egg wash and add additional shredded cheese before baking. It just added that extra punch of flavor. I agree, it would make nice gifts since it makes 4 perfectly sized loaves. Thanks for submitting this recipe Misti_Country_Girl.
