Crescia la Formaggio-Cheese Bread

As you know, I bake all the bread we eat and I like to try new recipes. I found one on King Arthur Flour's website that used parmesan cheese, which I had. They called it an Easter bread, Crescia la Formaggio. It has 4 eggs, one of the whites is used to glaze the top, as well as milk and butter and all that parmesan.

It made a moist and soft loaf with slightly chewy crust and it's perfect for toasting. It also makes an awesome grilled cheese sandwich. King Arthur flour seldom steers me wrong, and I can whole heartedly recommend this recipe.

I did make the dough in the bread machine and then bake it in a 9x5 pan.

I'll definitely be keeping this recipe, it would be very good with chili or as a garlic bread too, I think.

Wow, thanks for the recommendation. I've been looking for a more savory bread to make. A lot of the bread now is sweetish and not good for sandwiches. Even the grandchildren are complaining about "sweet" bread - and that's about store bought bread!

What a beautiful bread. I love cheesy breads. I would eat the whole loaf, possibly all at once. Too dangerous!

That would be amazing dipped in a tomato sauce.

Sorry, Pat, I was having some problems with links and photos last night, as you can tell from the huge pictures which I had reduced 3 times, but they didn't stay reduced!

That's why I referenced the King Arthur website.

This bread gets "cheesier" as you let it sit, I tasted the cheese more on the second day than I did right after it was baked.

Deb, I'm glad to see you here! I used "your" breadmaker, you know, that workhorse is still going strong, now I'll make rolls for Madison's first birthday with it, so a continuing "thank you"!

Momj47, this makes really good sandwiches, it's dense enough that it doesn't fall apart but soft enough to be "squishy", LOL.

Yes, Eileen, it's dangerous (wink) fortunately I have Elery and Cooper to help me with it.

Pretty_gurl, I'll bet the kids would like it with marinara and I think it would make awesome garlic bread too.

Silvia, thank you. As I said, King Arthur seldom steers me wrong, they definitely know bread.

Teresa, so far it keeps pretty well too, I think it's the eggs.

LindaC, is it yummy indeed.

That is a lovely loaf, Annie! I am going to try it as well. As soon as I finish off the asiago focaccia I made yesterday.

I was attempting to re-create the Sierra Turkey sandwich served at Panera. I used chef Ann Burrell's recipe from Food Network and added 1/2 c shredded asiago to the dough and another half cup on top. It was delicious and the sandwich was phenomenal!

I bet this bread would work very well for that sandwich, too!
