Cheese Herb Bread

Here's the recipe Cheese Herb Bread:



  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup 100% Brewer’s Barley Saved Grain Flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry active yeast
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • Cheese of your choice (cheddar, mozzarella, parmesan, etc.), shredded
  • Fresh or dried herbs (rosemary, thyme, basil, oregano, etc.), finely chopped
  • Salt to taste (optional)


  1. Prepare the Dough:
    • In a large mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, and dry active yeast.
    • Gradually pour in the warm water while stirring continuously until a shaggy dough forms.
    • Mix until all the ingredients are well combined and there are no dry patches. The dough will be sticky.
  1. Rise:
    • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or a clean kitchen towel.
    • Allow the dough to rise at room temperature for 3 to 5 hours, or until it has doubled in size and bubbles appear on the surface.
  1. Shape the Bread:
    • Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Place a Dutch oven or baking dish in the oven to preheat as well.
    • Lightly dust your work surface with flour and transfer the risen dough onto it.
    • Gently pat the dough into a rectangle or oval shape, about 1 inch thick.
  1. Add Cheese and Herbs:
    • Sprinkle a generous amount of shredded cheese and chopped herbs evenly over the surface of the dough.
    • Press the cheese and herbs lightly into the dough to help them adhere.
  1. Bake:
    • Carefully remove the preheated Dutch oven or baking dish from the oven.
    • Transfer the prepared dough into the hot dish.
    • Cover the dish with a lid or aluminum foil and place it back into the oven.
    • Bake for 30 minutes covered, then remove the lid or foil and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until the bread is golden brown and sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom.
  1. Cool and Serve:
    • Once baked, remove the bread from the oven and let it cool in the dish for a few minutes.
    • Transfer the bread to a wire rack to cool completely before slicing.
    • Slice the cheese herb bread and serve it warm or at room temperature. Enjoy the delicious aroma and flavors!
