Garlic Asiago Bread
My friends and family rave about this recipe. It has chunks of cheese and fabulous garlic taste. We have bread sales at our school as a fundraiser and this is always one of the top sellers.—Charlotte Thomas, Pollock Pines, California

Makes2 loaves (10 wedges each)
- 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
- 1-1/4 cups warm water (110° to 115°)
