Ingredients

  • 1 package dry yeast
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 cup warm water (105° to 115°)
  • 3 cups bread flour, divided
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 3/4 cup (3 ounces) shredded extra-sharp cheddar cheese
  • Cooking spray

Preparation

  1. Dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water in a large bowl, and let stand 5 minutes. Add 1 cup flour, mustard, oil, salt, and pepper, and stir until smooth. Add 1 3/4 cups flour and cheese, and stir to form a soft dough. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead until smooth and elastic (about 10 minutes); add enough of remaining flour, 1 tablespoon at a time, to prevent dough from sticking to hands.
  2. Place dough in a large bowl coated with cooking spray, turning to coat top. Cover and let rise in a warm place (85°), free from drafts, 1 hour or until doubled in bulk. Punch dough down; turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Roll dough into a 14 x 7-inch rectangle. Roll up rectangle tightly starting with a short edge, pressing firmly to eliminate air pockets; pinch seam and ends to seal. Place roll, seam side down, in a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan coated with cooking spray. Cover and let rise 1 hour or until doubled in bulk.
  3. Preheat oven to 375°.
  4. Uncover dough; bake at 375° for 35 minutes or until loaf sounds hollow when tapped. Remove from pan immediately; cool on a wire rack.
  5. Bread Machine Variaton: Follow manufacturer's instructions for placing all dough ingredients in bread pan. Select cycle, and start bread machine.
