Cheese Bread Recipe

I made a great cheese bread and I thought I’d share my recipe with you.

3/4 cup warm water
1/2 cup cottage cheese
2/3 cup shredded Gruyere (or you could use Swiss, or an old Cheddar)
1/2 cup grated Parmesan
1 tbsp. butter, cut up in pieces
2 tbsp. sugar
1 3/4 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. finely minced onion
1 tbsp. fine herbs
3 1/4 cup bread flour
2 tsp. bread machine yeast

swiss cheese, cottage cheese, parmesan cheese, salt, butter, sugar, flour, herbs, yeast, water

There's a glass of ice tea in the top, right corner. Ignore it. It's not part of the recipe.

Put everything in the bread machine, in the order listed. Select the sweet bread setting. Press start. Now this is the really important part. Walk away. Wash the dishes. Tell your kids to stop their infernal racket. Feed the cat. Read a few blog posts. Leave really witty comments telling the blogger how wonderful she is and how much you appreciate her sharing her recipe with you. Give a kid a bath. Read a bedtime story. Kiss kid goodnight. Marvel at how wonderful a freshly-bathed, sleepy child is. Clean up all the crap left lying around before the kid was a marvel. Update your Facebook status with an incredibly clever message like “S’up?”. Fold your laundry. Stack it. Carry it into your bedroom. Unfold it. Hang it on hangers. Wonder why you are insane. Get sleepy kid glass of water. Sigh. Twice. Tell him to go to sleep. Twice. Look at sleepy-but-not-sleeping kid and stop wondering why you are insane. Wonder if you can convince a jury you are insane. Hear the beeping of the bread machine. Realize you’ll never get those two hours back. Eat the entire loaf of bread, right out of the machine.

Yeah, I know. It's a little lopsided. I'm not Martha freakin' Stewart, ok?!

Bon appetit!
