Garlic and Parmesan Sourdough Bread

Recipe by Donna M.
READY IN: 3hrs 45mins




  • Starter must be proofed overnight or up to 12 hours before making bread.
  • Add ingredients to bread machine in the order recommended by your machine's manufacturer.
  • Select Dough cycle and start.
  • When dough has finished kneading, but before it goes into the rise, remove from machine and shape into loaf or loaves.
  • You could do standard loaves, or a free-form round or oval, or elongate.
  • Let bread rise until double in bulk, covered.
  • For a nice touch, lightly beat 1 egg white with 1 Tbsp water and brush top of loaf with this egg wash, and then sprinkle with fresh Parmesan, finely shredded.
  • Bake at 375 degrees F for 30 to 45 minutes, depending on the size of loaves.
  • NOTE: Roasted garlic could be used, in which case I would increase the amount because it is milder in flavor.
