While visiting my local Quiznos decided to try to make my own. Used a couple of my favorite Zaar recipes as the starting point. Made two loaves yesterday . . . friends stopped in and we devoured one loaf with cheese. It was deemed ready for the public! Next time may try adding a couple tablespoons of sun dried tomatoes.
- 1 1⁄2 cups sourdough starter
- 1⁄2 cup milk
- 2 tablespoons oil
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 3 cups bread flour (depending on the consistency of the starter more may be needed)
- 2⁄3 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 egg white
- 1 tablespoon water
- 3 tablespoons parmesan cheese, finely grated
- Proof starter over night before making bread.
- To Kitchen Aid mixing bowl add all the ingredients (except toppings).
- Using dough hook mix until a satin ball is formed (approximately 12-15 minutes); adding additional flour as needed.
- Remove dough to greased bowl, turning once to coat.
- Cover and allow to rise until doubled (approximately 1 hour).
- Form into 1 large or 2 smaller free-form loaves and place on parchment paper or pizza peel dusted with corn meal.
- Cover and allow bread to rise until double in size.
- Preheat oven to 375 dgrees.
- Lightly beat 1 egg white with 1 tablespoon water.
- Brush top of loaves with egg wash and then sprinkle with fresh parmesan.
- Bake a 375 deghrees for 30-45 minutes, depending on the size of the loaves.
This is a really great bread. I made it for Thanksgiving and got tons of compliments! In fact, I'm making more this morning. Thanks for posting. : )
Great bread, was a pleasure to work with, and slices beautifully, making it a great sandwich bread Thanks so much for sharing
The recipe was reduced by half and produced a beautiful, well rounded loaf of bread. It was baked on a baking stone. The bread was nice and chewy. Something I will be making again. Made for *1-2-3 Hit Wonders*
