Asiago cheese is a highly fragrant cheese similar to Parmesan. It’s a hard cheese and browns well when used in recipes, particularly bread. This recipe calls for the Asiago to be incorporated into the dough and as a topping. You top the bread with a quarter cup of grated asiago cheese after the rise cycle and before the bake cycle. Asiago cheese bread goes great with a soup or salad or on its own with a glass of wine or beer. It’s also a great accompaniment to robust offerings like roasts and barbecue and makes a great sandwich bread.

INGREDIENTS:
 1 ¼ cups of milk at 110° F./ 43° C.
 1 ½ tsps. of salt
 1 tsp. of sugar
 ¼ tsp. pepper
 2 tbsps. butter at room temperature
 1 large egg
 4 cups of bread flour or all-purpose flour
 1 ¼ cups of shredded asiago cheese (reserve ¼ cup for topping)
 2 ½ tsps. of bread-machine yeast or active dry-yeast
DIRECTIONS:
1

Add the ingredients to the bread machine pan in the order indicated in the ingredients section and select basic white-bread setting, 2-pound loaf and medium crust. Reserve a ¼ cup of the grated asiago cheese.

2

After the rise cycle and before the baking cycle begins, top the risen dough with the remaining ¼ cup of shredded asiago cheese and quickly close the lid.

3

When done, let rest for 10 minutes and slice and serve.

      Hi Charles,

      3 cups of flour are the typical measure for a 1.5 loaf. If you are working from a recipe for a 2 pound loaf, cut the ingredients by a third. If you want to make a 1.5 pound loaf with a recipe for a 1 pound loaf, increase the ingredients by a third.
