Cheesy Loaf

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem

It's no secret I love this dough, I mean, who wouldn't? It comes together so quick and doesn't even need to rise yet still yields soft and fluffy rolls, alhamdulillah. I've already done one spin-off, figured another wouldn't hurt! This ooey, gooey cheesey loaf of bread was the result of last minute company and the best thing to accompany the boiling pot of pasta on the stove I was getting ready for them. I had intended it to be a braided-bread type of thing, but it rose while cooking and spread out, resembling nothing of the original breading it went into the oven with. The middle of the loaf looked so empty and sad that I had to fill it with something and what better than some cheese? I sprinkled on some in the last 5 minutes of baking and there you have it: a very easy cheesy loaf.

Cheesy Loaf
1 batch of 40 minute roll's dough
1 tsp of seasoning/toppings of your choice (I used poppy seeds and Italian herbs)
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1. Prepare dough according to directions. Roll out into a log and slice lengthwise into three strips. Connect strips together at the top by pressing dough together and begin to braid, tuck ends in underneath. Allow to rest on baking sheet.

2. Brush with an egg wash and top with your seasoning (optional). Bake 25 - 30 minutes (keep an eye on it!).

3. In last 5 minutes, remove loaf and sprinkle the middle with cheese. Return to oven and continue baking until cheese is bubbly and melted. Allow to cool 5 mintues before cutting.
