DIRECTIONS

  • In a large bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in 2 cups warm water; let stand for 5 minutes. Add olive oil and salt.
  • With an electric mixer, gradually beat in 3 cups flour, beating until smooth.
  • Beat in cheddar cheese and 1 cup Monterey Jack cheese with peppers. Gradually beat in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough.
  • Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead dough for 5 minutes, or until smooth and elastic.
  • Place dough in a lightly greased bowl, turning to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place (85*), free from drafts, for 45 minutes, or until doubled in size.
  • Lightly grease 2 (9x5-inch) loaf pans; set aside.
  • Divide dough into 2 equal portions. Shape into 10-inch loaves and place in prepared pans.
  • Cover and let rise in a warm place, free from drafts, for 45 minutes, or until doubled in size.
  • Preheat oven to 350*.
  • Gently brush each loaf with egg white and sprinkle well with remaining 2 tablespoons Monterey Jack cheese with peppers.
  • Bake for 25 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • Let cool in pans for 10 minutes. Remove from pans and place on wire racks.
  • Let cool for 30 minutes before slicing.
