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
  • Total Time
    Prep: 30 min. + rising Bake: 20 min. + cooling
  • Makes
    2 loaves (10 wedges each)


  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1-1/4 cups warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 7 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons white vinegar
  • 3 to 3-1/4 cups bread flour
  • 1 cup cubed Asiago cheese
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon water


  • In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the oil, garlic, sugar, salt, vinegar and 2 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a firm dough. Stir in cheese.
  • Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • Punch dough down; divide in half. Shape into 5-in. round loaves. Place on lightly greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  • For egg wash, in a small bowl, combine egg and water. Brush over loaves. Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire racks.

    I ended up adding quite a bit more flour than the recipe called for. It would be nice if there was a specific time added for the beating process, but I managed. It's delicious bread. Would make again.
