RECIPE of the Day - 6/28/2007

This is such a great bread recipe. The herbs blend together well and the butter and parmesan...delicous!

Round Herb Loaf

1 package active dry yeast
1/4 cup warm water
1 1/4 cups warm milk
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 egg
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3 cups flour
1/3 cup melted butter
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon sesame seed
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika

Grease a 2-quart casserole. Dissolve yeast in warm water. Let stand a few minutes. Add milk, oil, egg, sugar and salt, mixing well. Gradually add flour. Knead briefly on a lightly floured board. Let rise until doubled in bulk.

Punch down dough. Pinch off walnut-size balls of dough; dip in melted butter. Place in 1 layer in casserole.

Mix cheese, sesame seed, garlic salt and paprika. Sprinkle one-half of this mixture over the layer of dough. Proceed in the same manner with the remaining dough; pour remaining butter over dough; sprinkle with the remaining herb mixture. Let rise until almost doubled.

Bake at 400 degrees F for 25 to 30 minutes in an ovenproof glass casserole with a rounded bottom.

Cool in casserole for 5 to 10 minutes. Serve warm.
