Spinach Feta Bread (A B M)

Recipe by dividend
READY IN: 3hrs 15mins
YIELD: 1 loaf




  • Add the dough ingredients to your bread machine pan in the order listed.
  • Set your machine for a 1 lb dough cycle. If your machine has an extras setting, select it.
  • Toss the cubed feta with the whole wheat flour. Add to the extras dispenser if your bread machine has one, if not, just set it aside. (It doesn't all fit into the dispenser, so add what will fit, and either mound the rest on top, or set it aside.).
  • You have to pay attention to your machine. If it has the extras setting (on my machine, it's 20 minutes into the cycle), when you hear it dispense the cheese, open the lid and add the shredded spinach. If you don't have an extra setting, open the lid and add the spinach and the cheese 20 minutes into the cycle.
  • Once the cycle is complete, remove the dough from the machine, form it into a tight ball, cover it with bread machine pan, and let rest for 10 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • Shape the dough into a fat, round loaf. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes.
  • Brush the top of the loaf with the optional beaten egg. (It gives the finished loaf a nice shiny glaze.).
  • Bake 40 to 45 minutes, until the loaf sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom.
  • Cool on a wire rack.
