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.
Place the yeast, sugar and warm water into the bread pan and let rest for 5 minutes.
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.
After the kneading cycle, drape some slices of the prosciutto over the top of the loaf.
When done, remove and let rest on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Slice and serve.
