A Recipe for Asiago Cheese Bread with Sun Dried Tomatoes

With or Without a Bread Machine

Make this Asiago cheese bread with or without a bread machine. It's an excellent artisan bread that is suitable for using to make croutons, panini, bruschetta -- or just to eat out of hand. The recipe makes an 1 1/2 pound loaf.

Tip: This bread is at its best when you use high quality ingredients. Be sure to use a good quality of cheese and avoid the temptation to substitute the bread flour for regular flour.

Tip #2:Feel free to increase the amounts of sun dried tomatoes and Asiago cheese if you are particularly fond of those flavors.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoon of white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of milk powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 cups of bread flour
  • 1/2 cup of wheat bran
  • 3 tablespoons of sun dried tomatoes, coarsely chopped
  • 1/3 cup Asiago cheese, grated
  • 1 teaspoon basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, ground
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon active dry yeast

Bread Machine Method

Place all ingredients in your bread machine in the order provided. Set the machine to Regular Bake. This Asiago Cheese Bread recipe takes a little longer to rise than most breads -- so you may want to check the rising cycle and allow a little extra time.

Hand Method

Dissolve the yeast in one cup of warm water with 1 teaspoon of sugar added. Allow to become frothy.

Mix other ingredients together in the order given. Add the yeast.

Turn out onto a floured board and knead well. Place in a greased pan, cover and allow to rise until doubled in bulk This might take about seventy minutes. Punch down, cover and let rise again for approximately fifty minutes. Place in a greased baking pan and bake in a preheated 400 degree F. oven.

This makes an excellent loaf of artisan bread.

A Covered Baker for a Crispy Crust

This Sassafras Superstone Covered Baker is wonderful for baking crisp-crusted artisan breads with a light crumb. The second rising happens right in the baker, then you pop the entire thing in the oven or microwave. This baker produces the kind of results you would expect from an oven that is lined with bricks.

You can also use it for baking other foods, such as meats or vegetables. Recipes are included.

It's a great item to own, and it makes an excellent gift for the cook on your list.

      Yummy. I love Asiago bread but generally leave it up to the local bakery to make mine. Yet I have a breadmaker so what's my delay? I want the Sassafras Superstone Baker. It's on my wish list.

      @TonyPayne: Perhaps a different name in the UK. It is an excellent cheese, regardless of the name.

      This sounds good, although you never see Asiago Cheese in the UK, I wonder if it goes by a different name? I do love Asiago Cheese bread and bagels.

      I love asiago bread. Usually I just buy it from our local bakery. But you've encouraged me. I have a bread maker. I didn't realize I could do a cheesy bread in it. And the Sassafras Bread Baker is on my wish list for fish camp where I can't plug in the bread maker. Thanks! d

      @anonymous: I don't remember offhand. I take a look at the bread after about 40 minutes of baking. I tap the bread with my fingers. If the bread sounds hollow when tapped and looks golden brown in color, it is ready to take out of the oven. If not, leave it and check back in ten minutes or so.

      I LOVE Asiago cheese. I make manicotti and add the cheese. It sounds like it would be delicious in bread, and the sun dried tomatoes would go great with it as well. Lovely lens.
