Prosciutto is an Italian dry-cured ham known for the intensity of its flavor and rosy color.  Prosciutto bread uses chopped pieces or prosciutto and hard and diced parmesan cheese as a blended ingredient in the dough.  This recipe is easy to make in your bread machine from start to finish using the white bread setting.

This bread is a hearty loaf with some salty accents from the prosciutto and it’s great at breakfast toasted with eggs.  It’s also a great sandwich bread with cold cuts and/or cheese or as an accompaniment to any Italian dish. 

Prosciutto is a bit expensive, but the amount you need for this loaf is not that much, so it should be affordable.  This bread also has a yeast proofing step.  This is simple to do and involves combining the yeast, warm water and sugar in the bread pan and letting the yeast come to life for 5 minutes before adding the other ingredients.

INGREDIENTS:
INGREDIENTS FOR PROOFING STEP:
 1 ¼ teaspoons of bread machine or active dry yeast
 1 teaspoon sugar
 1 cup warm water 110 degrees Fahrenheit/43 degrees Celsius
INGREDIENTS FOR THE FINAL LOAF:
 1 teaspoon of salt
 1 teaspoon very coarsely ground black pepper
 2 cups of bread flour or all-purpose flour
 1/2 cup prosciutto, chopped into 1/4-inch dice
 3/4 cup hard parmesan cheese from wedge chopped into 1/4-inch dice
DIRECTIONS:
1

Place the yeast, sugar and warm water into the bread pan and let rest for 5 minutes.

2

Add the rest of the ingredients to the bread pan in the order indicated and select the basic white setting for 2-pound loaf and a dark crust. If you only have a 1-pound loaf capacity, divide all of the ingredients by half.

3

After the kneading cycle, drape some slices of the prosciutto over the top of the loaf.

4

When done, remove and let rest on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Slice and serve.
