It’s quite likely you have not heard of Fergasa bread.  It’s essentially a white bread with the addition of green onions, cubed cheddar cheese, hot sauce and a flavor note from basil.  It’s actually a Canadian  bread recipe that seems to have emerged from the Winnipeg area of Manitoba.  It’s not to be confused with the Fougasse bread from France which is more of a pretzel.  Fergasa bread is a loaf and a thick slice toasted makes a great sandwich or a dipping bread for soups or stews.

You can make Fergasa bread from start to finish in your bread machine.  It’s wonderful when served warm because the cheese cubes are still melty and creamy.  The hot sauce is optional, and you can also substitute dried onion flakes if you don’t have green onions on hand. 

INGREDIENTS:
 1 ¼ cups of water at 110 degrees Fahrenheit/43 degrees Celsius)
 1 tablespoon of oil
 1 teaspoon of hot sauce (optional)
 1 tablespoon of sugar
 1 ½ teaspoons of salt
 3 tablespoons of fresh, green onions chopped or 2 tablespoons of dried onion flakes
 ½ cup of cubed cheddar cheese
 1 ½ teaspoons of dried basil
 3 cups of bread flour or all-purpose flour
 1 teaspoon of bread machine yeast or active dry yeast.
DIRECTIONS:
1

Add the ingredients to the bread pan in the order indicated in the ingredients list.

2

Select the white bread setting for a 1.5-pound loaf and medium crust.

3

When done, remove the loaf from the pan and slice and serve immediately if you want to enjoy the melty cheese.
