    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    For rolls cut the dough into 18 pieces and shape into balls, let rise as directed and bake for 20-25 minutes in a 375 degree oven. There is no need for a bread pan, these loaves are oval-shaped then baked, make certain that your bread is well browned before sprinkling on the cheese otherwise the bread will "sink" when placed back in the oven --- for pan greasing see my Pan Release, Professional Pan Coating (Better Than Pam Spray!)

    1. 1
      Prepare a heavy-duty stand mixer with kneader blade attachment.
    2. 2
      In a small saucepan heat the milk with butter and salt (the sugar will be proofed with the yeast) until the milk is warmed and the butter is melted; remove from stove top and cool to lukewarm (I stick the saucepan in the fridge for about 20 minutes).
    3. 3
      Proof 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon dry yeast in 1-1/2 cups warm water with 2 tablespoons sugar until foamy (about 8-10 minutes).
    4. 4
      Place 4-1/2 cups flour in the stainless steel mixing bowl.
    5. 5
      When the milk mixture is luke warm and the yeast is proofed add to the mixing bowl.
    6. 6
      Start kneading adding in more flour if needed to create a soft smooth dough; knead for about 8 minutes.
    7. 7
      The last couple of minutes of kneading add in the grated cheddar cheese; mix until combined with the dough.
    8. 8
      Remove the dough to the counter; cover with a clean towel and let rest about 5 minutes.
    9. 9
      Gather up the dough and shape into a ball.
    10. 10
      Place in an oiled bowl; cover with plastic wrap or a clean towel, then let rise in a warm place for about 1 hour.
    11. 11
      Punch down the dough and let rest covered for about 5-6 minutes.
    12. 12
      Divide the dough evenly in half and shape into two oval loaves.
    13. 13
      Place the two loaves onto a large greased baking sheet (leaving room between the dough).
    14. 14
      Cover and let rise for about 30 minutes.
    15. 15
      In a small bowl mix together the egg and water; brush liberally onto the top and sides of the dough (you will have some egg mixture leftover).
    16. 16
      Bake in a 400 degree oven for about 23 minutes or until lighly golden brown; remov quickly sprinkle with grated cheese, place back into the oven and bake until browned (another 3-5 minutes).

      If you could smell the aroma of this baking, you would immediately bakee a batch of your own! And is it good!!! I usd half the dough to make two small loavs in mini pans--resulted in two gorgeous loaves. I used the other half to make nine lovely rolls. The color, without the topping or egg wash, is a golden brown, the texture is moist, the crumb excellent. I did use good extra sharp cheddar, the flavor and scent of which is wonderful. I know I'll be making these often. Thanks, Kitz!

      This turned out so good. I used mild cheddar and it would've probably had more cheese taste if I had used sharp but it was still delicious. The bread has such a pretty color with darker specks in it from the cheese..very visually appealing loaf. After reading the previous reviews, I skipped the cheese on top. I made 4 small loaves and they're perfect to freeze and thaw one out for a meal. Want to make some buns with jalapenos added next time. Thanks for a great recipe.

      Very tasty! Bread turned out with a very nice texture and flavor, although I should have gotten a sharper cheddar. I think it would also be good with Asiago cheese. I had a little trouble getting the cheese to stick to the bread in the last step, but that is because of the round shape I made. Plan on making the rolls some time for burgers. Thanks for posting this one!
