Wonderful bread with very good flavor. I also made this in my bread machine as I am not the best at making bread yet. Omitted the egg wash and the last 1/4 cup of cheese because I went ahead and added it to the dough mixture. Served with ChaCha's Mock Ravioli for supper tonight. Made and reviewed for Kitten's Chef Pick Tag Game.
I confess, I also used my bread machine, and left off the egg wash. The bread is great. The cheese and herbs blend together so that no single flavor predominates. The crust is crisp, and the crumb is moist and soft. I made this to serve with chili, but it would be good with any soup or stew. Thanks for posting!
This was the first yeast bread I've made since I was 11 years old, and I was really happy with how well it came out. I flubbed a few different parts by adding ingredients I'd forgotten at the last minute, as well as over kneading it because the 11 year old wanted to know how we made bread back in the "old days" before kitchenaid mixers. despite the attention from the 11 year old, and my own distract ability, it came out Excellent!
Fantastic!!!! I cheated, tho, and made it in the bread machine. I only used 3/4 cup of cheddar in the dough. I didn't add any on top nor the eggwash...just let the machine do it all! One of my favorite breads now!!!!
Delicious bread. I baked it in a round souffle dish. We had it with soup for dinner. This is a keeper. (I DO cheat when making bread. I do the mixing and kneading in the old bread machine, and then do the rising and baking in the traditional way).
