Parmesan Loaves Recipe

I've been making this bread since my college days, when I shared an apartment with five home economics majors. My family likes this best fresh out of the oven, but it also freezes and reheats well.

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the milk, cheese, sugar, oil, salt, cayenne and 2 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1-1/2 hours.
  3. Punch dough down. Turn onto a floured surface; divide in half. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes. Roll each into a 16-in. x 10-in. rectangle. Brush with butter; sprinkle with garlic salt. Cut into four 10-in. x 4-in. rectangles.
  4. Stack butter side up. Cut each stack into five 4-in. x 2-in. strips. Place five strips, cut side down, in a greased 8-in. x 4-in. loaf pan. Repeat with remaining dough. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  5. Bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool. Yield: 2 loaves (16 slices each).
