Delectable Cheese Bread
I don’t often use that word, Delectable. But it’s fitting here. This cheese bread has been a staple in our family for years. I first learned how to make it as a Baker at my job when I was a young adult. I learned a lot of stuff at that job, and some of it stuck. This cheese bread is one of the best things that I have kept making.
What you’ll need is two loaf baking pans, cooking spray, 2 eggs, two loaves of frozen white bread dough, and about 1.5 cups of cheese.
I take my dough out and thaw it partially. You can keep it out longer and defrost all the way, but I find that partially frozen it chops better.
First thing, spray your pans well with cooking spray. With the cheese, there is potential to stick, so I like to give them a good coating.
Now take your bread, cut it up a little on a cutting board. Mine are well used. Arrange the bread into a circle as best you can.
Take and break your eggs into the well of the circle of bread.
Now take your cheese and put that over top of the bread.
Take your knife and start chopping your mixture. You basically want small cubes of bread dough mixed with the cheese and egg.
Separate the dough into two loaf pans.
Let the dough sit a couple hours. You are allowing the dough to rise, but you don’t want it to get really puffy and have holes in your dough.
Just a couple of hours will do it, if your kitchen is about 75 degrees.
Bake for about 20-25 minutes at 400 degrees. Your oven may vary from mine. You want the bread to sound hollow when you knock on it, and look golden on the top.
Immediately pull them from the pans, and allow them to cool. Although if you have minions like mine, they will be only willing to wait perhaps 15 minutes before they start sneaking in the kitchen and breaking off any cheese pieces that are sticking up. Did I say minions, I uh, meant me.
Want to be decadent? Slather some softened butter on there. OMGOSH soooo good.
IF and that’s a big IF, you have any leftover. Or you hide some, cough cough, this is an amazing breakfast! I love to toast it and put a little bit of butter on it. The toasting makes the whole thing crispy and soo good. Really you gotta try this cheese bread. it’s amazing. You can also make it into muffins or tiny little loaves. But make it. You’ll see.
