Savory Cheddar Cheese Bread
The bite of cheese in a loaf of plain white bread is always welcome. This bread is very close-grained, and is wonderful for toast or sandwiches — especially grilled cheese! The addition of a half teaspoon of tabasco sauce gives the bread just a hint of heat.
The loaf is designed to bake in a Zojirushi full-sized bread machine, though you can certainly prepare and bake the dough by hand: after its first rise, shape the dough and place it in an 8 1/2" x 4 1/2" pan; let it rise, then bake it in a preheated 350°F oven for about 35 to 40 minutes.
