Pepper Cheese Bread

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups finely diced green peppers
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 2 tablespoons active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water (115 degrees F)
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 3 eggs
  • 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon water

Instructions

  1. In a skillet, sauté peppers in 1 tablespoon of the olive oil for 15 minutes, or until tender. Set aside.
  2. Dissolve the yeast in warm water. Stir in the sugar; let stand for five minutes.
  3. Heat milk, honey, salt and remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil to approximately 115 degrees F.
  4. Remove from heat and stir in cheese. Stir in 2 eggs and reserved peppers; add to yeast mixture.
  5. Add 2 cups flour; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Do not knead.
  6. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about one hour.
  7. Punch dough down; spoon into two greased 8 x 4 x 2-inch loaf pans. Cover and let rise until doubled in size.

  9. Bake at 375 degrees F for 25 - 30 minutes or until golden brown.
