1 loaf (12 slices)

This rustic-looking loaf is so versatile. Thick slices are great with Sunday breakfast omelets, a salad lunch, a pasta dinner...or even as an appetizer for guests.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon each dried basil, thyme and rosemary, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 1-1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 3 tablespoons tomato paste

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, cheeses, baking powder, baking soda and seasonings. In another bowl, whisk the egg, buttermilk, oil and tomato paste. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.
  2. Transfer to a greased 8x4-in. loaf pan. Bake at 350° for 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
