YUM!! I used crushed garlic instead of garlic powder for this recipe and it was divine! I'll definately be making this again one day!

Directions

  1. Mix yeast, warm water and sugar together in a large bowl. Set aside for five minutes, or until mixture becomes foamy.
  2. Stir in olive oil, salt, herbs, garlic powder, onion powder, cheese and 3 cups flour into the yeast mixture.
  3. Gradually mix in next three cups of flour. (Dough will be stiff). Knead for 5 to 10 minutes, or until it is smooth and elastic.
  4. Place in an oiled bowl, turning to cover sides with oil. Cover with a damp linen towel, or plastic wrap. Let rise for 1 hour, or until dough has doubled.
  5. Punch down to release all the air. Shape into two loaves. Place loaves on a greased cookie sheet, or into two 9x5 inch, greased pans.
  6. Allow to rise for 1/2 hour again, until doubled in a warm place.
  7. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes.
  8. Remove loaves from pans and let cool on wire racks for at least 15 minutes, before slicing.
