I’m not a big baker although I love sweets so when I bought the book “Off the Shelf Baking“, I immediately loved the recipes in it. Tonight, I was tossing through it and came across this recipe for cheese bread.

The photo of the soup with the cheese bread made me dream of how it would taste so good to dip in any soup. On a cold night, it’s nice to serve a hot bowl of soup with cheese bread.
I think cheese can make just about anything taste good, to me it’s a lot like ketchup! LOL…if cheese can’t make something better, then there’s no hope! 😀
And like my mom used to do, I enjoy sopping up my bowl with my bread!

2 tbsp. sesame seeds
1/2 c. sliced green onion (4)
1 tbsp. butter or margarine
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese (4 ounces)
1 egg, slightly beaten
1/4 c. snipped fresh parsley
2 tbsp. fine dry bread crumbs
1/2 tsp. dried dill
1/8 tsp. salt
Few drops of bottled hot pepper sauce
2 16-oz. loaves frozen white bread dough, thawed
- Grease a 10-inch fluted tube pan. Sprinkle sesame seeds into plan to cover bottom and hallway up the side; set pan aside.
- For filling, in a small saucepan cook the green onion in hot butter over medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes or until tender. Transfer to a small bowl. Stir in the cheddar cheese, egg, parsley, bread crumbs, dill, salt, and bottled hot pepper sauce, set aside.
- Knead together both portions of dough and shape all the dough into one large ball. Place on a lightly floured surface; flatten slightly.
- Roll dough into an 18×12-inch rectangle. (Let dough rest for 5 to 10 minutes if it is difficult to roll.) Spread the filling over the dough.
- Roll up in a spiral, starting from a long side. Seal seam; pinch ends together lightly to seal.
- Place roll, seam side up, in prepared pan.
- Cover and let rise in a warm place until nearly double (about 1 hour). After 50 minutes, preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
- Bake in the preheated oven about 35 minutes or until golden brown and bread sounds hollow when lightly tapped.
- Remove bread from pan and let cool about 1 hour on a wire rack. Serve warm.
