Magic Cheese Bread

Magic Cheese Bread
It's Magic Cheese Bread
This is a no fail bread recipe for the bread maker and the reason I named it Magic Cheese Bread is because, although it contains cheese and garlic, you cannot taste either. The cheese however gives it a light texture and yet it has a crusty European crack going on too. You will love it! I have a friend that eats it with blackberry jam, he has no clue their is cheese or garlic in it. If you are afraid of the garlic, just substitute plain salt but please don't leave out the cheese, it won't be the same. Oh, did I mention it is healthy too?

Magic Cheese Bread

1 cup warm water
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup whole wheat flour
11/2 cups white wheat four
1 1/2 teaspoons Florida Crystals
1 1/2 teaspoons yeast
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic salt
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Layer ingredients into your bread maker according to your type of bread makers instructions (mine loads liquid first, if yours loads dry goods first then reverse the order of ingredients). So I load, water, olive oil, flour, sugar, yeast, salt and cheese. Set your bread maker for a European two pound loaf.

I serve this bread with my Split Peas Soup and it is a big hit.

How I became Considering frugal

Fueled by the growing list of pollution related allergies my family suffered from each day, and inspired by my 97 year old grandmother who could recycle ANYTHING before recycling was cool, back in 2011, I decided (in the spirit of the Julie/Julia Project...) to embark on a journey to see just how much one family could do to change our planet. I didn't consult any other parties before I launched this idea. Thankfully my husband, daughter and son are usually my biggest supporters. Here is the catch; as I'm normally very thrifty (you can note from early blog posts), I was looking for ways that I could reduce our carbon footprint and make socially responsible purchases without increasing our spending. Mmmmmm. We succeed in changing some of our habits a bit and finding ways to reduce our footprint. There were lots of fun epic fails alone the way too! But the biggest change we have made over the course of the last six years, was to move from the mega city of Phoenix to Wyoming. You can read my full bio on my About Me page.
