This is the companion to my French Onion Roast Beef Blog. This has to be my favorite bread I make. It never fails to be moist and flavorful.
Start by filling your measuring cup with 4 cups of the hottest tapwater you can manage. Empty into your measuring cup empty three packets of instant yeast you will then cover them with 1/ third of a cup of granulated white sugar. Watch while the yeast drops to the bottom and the sugar begins to develop the yeast and make it Bloom. This step should be allowed to happen for at least 10 minutes.
In a separate large mixing bowl add 6 cups of white flour,1/3 cup Italian seasoning, 1/3 cup salt , 2 tablespoons garlic powder, two large eggs room temperature and finally one cup of oil. This is when you will begin to add your yeast and water mixture from the measuring cup. By hand begin to mix the bread till a soft dough forms. NOW comes the fun part you’re going to add 2 cups of asiago cheese shredded. Continue to mix and need the bread another 2 to 3 minutes Then place bowl on top of your warm stove top with the oven preheating to 375 for 35 minutes. Cover you Bread with a damp warm towel.
once it had risen to at least twice the size your are ready to form. Take a portion of dough equal to the size of your fist add a bit of flour and shape into a large roll. Place on a parchment t lined baking sheet. This recipe yields a 12 Rolls. Keep forming til you have used all the dough. Score the top of each with an X, use a sharp knife. Egg wash with one egg and 2 Tablespoons Heavy Cream. Sprinkle with Parmesan Cheese. Bake at 375 for 20 minutes and you are done! Anyone Can Cook, now you can Make BREAD! Look at You!
