Mastoris Cheese Bread Recipe: Savoring the Cheesy Bliss

For the Bread: – 4 cups all-purpose flour – 1 tablespoon granulated sugar – 1 teaspoon salt – 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast (1 packet) – 1 1/4 cups warm water (about 110°F or 45°C) – 2 tablespoons olive oil

For the Cheese Filling: – 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese – 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese – 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley – 2 cloves garlic, minced – 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted

Instructions: 1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the warm water and sugar. Sprinkle the active dry yeast over the water and let it sit for about 5-10 minutes until foamy. 2. Once the yeast is activated, add the salt and olive oil to the bowl. Gradually add the flour, mixing well until a dough forms.

1. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for about 5-7 minutes until smooth and elastic. Alternatively, you can use a stand mixer with a dough hook attachment for kneading. 2. Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover with a clean kitchen towel or plastic wrap, and let it rise in a warm, draft-free place for about 1 hour, or until doubled in size.

1. While the dough is rising, prepare the cheese filling. In a mixing bowl, combine the shredded mozzarella cheese, grated Parmesan cheese, chopped parsley, and minced garlic. Mix until well combined. 2. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish or line it with parchment paper.

1. Once the dough has risen, punch it down and divide it into two equal portions. Roll out each portion into a rectangle about 1/4 inch thick. 2. Brush the melted butter over each rectangle of dough, then evenly sprinkle the cheese filling mixture over the dough.

1. Starting from one long side, tightly roll up each rectangle of dough into a log. 2. Using a sharp knife, slice each log into 1-inch thick rounds. 3. Arrange the slices in the prepared baking dish, leaving a little space between each slice. 4. Cover the baking dish with a clean kitchen towel and let the cheese bread rise for an additional 20-30 minutes.

1. Once the cheese bread has risen again, bake it in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown and the cheese is bubbly. 2. Remove the cheese bread from the oven and let it cool slightly before serving. 3. Enjoy the warm, cheesy bliss of Mastoris Cheese Bread as a delicious appetizer or side dish!
