Cheesy French Bread

My hubby requested that I make this the other day and while I've made French Bread before I haven't tried the cheesy kind. Turns out all you have to do is put some cheese on top and it looks just like the stuff at the deli.

What you need:

  • 1 1/4 c. warm water
  • 1 T sugar
  • 1 t. salt
  • 3 1/2 c. flour
  • 1 T. yeast
Add ingredients together in the order indicated in the bread machine. Run on the "Dough" cycle. After it finishes roll into a large roll and let rise in a warm place covered with a clean towel for about 40 minutes. After it finishes rising brush the surface with eggwhites. Then sprinkle cheese on top. I used cheddar and parmesan. Bake at 400F for 20 -25 minutes.

Thank you for all the stuff that you share with us. I sure appreciate it.

For this recipe, are you able to use honey instead? We are trying not to have sugar in our diet.

Thank you 🙂

I think that would work in this recipe but I’m not sure what the ratio would be since I don’t normally use honey to cook with. Sorry I can’t help more! I would just try a small amount.

Would not using a bread machine change the recipe, or could this be done by hand (or with a mixer)?

You could make this recipe either way and should be able to make it the same way. Just make sure to knead once, let it rise, knead the second time and let it rise once more before baking.
