Makes

1 loaf

When my grown children come home for visits, they always ask me to make this bread along with their favorite spaghetti dinner. In between times, the easy-to-prepare loaf is a hit at church socials and potluck suppers.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour, divided
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons dried minced onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • Butter, melted

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add 2 cups flour, 1/4 cup butter, egg, sugar, salt and seasonings. Beat at low speed until mixed, about 30 seconds; increase speed to medium and continue beating for 2 minutes. Stir in remaining flour and 1/3 cup cheese; beat until smooth.
  2. Cover bowl and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Stir batter 25 strokes. Spread batter into a greased 1-1/2-qt. casserole; brush with melted butter and sprinkle with the remaining cheese. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  3. Bake at 350° about 35 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire rack 10 minutes before removing from the casserole.
