Some of the best bread you will ever sink your teeth into.

At least it is for us. We have purchased a large loaf of bread like this from a local bakery but at $6.95 per loaf it is a rare treat.

So Steve went looking for a recipe online. He found something that he thought we could modify and make work.

And work it did. We tweaked it here and there and this was the result. It is so good and this loaf was gone at the end of the meal. It's the perfect addition to chef salad or soup night.

1 1/4 cups milk warmed to room temperature
2 tablespoons softened butter
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
3 1/2 cups bread flour
1 tablespoon yeast
1/2 cup cubed cheese chunks
3 large garlic cloves chopped into fourths
Place all ingredients into breadmaker in order listed. Use dough setting and let it rise once. When finished, remove dough and place onto lightly floured surface. Gently kneed in another 1/2 cup cubed cheese chunks. Place in large greased casserole dish (or two greased loaf pans) and let rise for 45 minutes. Just before placing into the oven sprinkle some shredded cheese over the top of the loaf. Bake for 25 minutes at 375 degrees. Let cool for 10 minutes before removing from the pan. Let loaf finish cooling on a rack.
Let me know if you try this and what you think!

This sounds fabulous! I don't have a lot of luck baking with yeast breads (I blame it on our high altitude, but it's probably just me) but this looks amazing. It doensn't get any better than cheese INSIDE bread.
