Parmesan Pine Nut Bread

I made a batch of this delicious Parmesan Pine Nut Bread for company a few weeks ago and it turned out spectacular. I really enjoy Greek or Italian-type breads anyway, but this great recipe includes Parmesan cheese, pine nuts and Italian seasoning which provides really nice flavors and depth to the bread.

Parmesan Pine Nut Bread is wonderful served with an Italian-type meal, although I served it with Chicken Parmesan Casserole, several different Tomato Tarts, and Pumpkin Nachos! The crunchiness from the nuts and the savory flavors from the cheese make for an excellent tasting bread.

I found this recipe  in my Better Homes and GardensThe Complete Guide to Bread Machine Baking. I’ve made about ten recipes out of this book so far, and everyone has come out fantastic! Not only that, but I picked up a copy of the book at Half Price Books so it wasn’t overly expensive either! This is one of the few  bread machine cookbooks that hasn’t let me down with disasters at every turn!

Parmesan Pine Nut Bread is a wonderful and tasty homemade bread you’re family is sure to enjoy, too. If you’re looking for a great tasting bread but you’re tired of plain white bread, then why don’t you give this one a go? You won’t be disappointed. My ingredients listing is  for a two-pound breadmaker, although the original recipe gives an ingredient list for a one-and-a-half pound bread loaf as well. Parmesan Pine Nut Bread is a great bread to throw in the breadmaker now that the days are getting cooler. Add a pot of soup, chowder, stew, or chili and you’re good to go!

This bread also made a great sandwich bread. I made several grilled sandwiches with it. Parmesan Pine Nut Bread is a great bread to serve with Italian dinners like Baked Manicotti, Baked Ravioli, or Tortellini Spinach Casserole.

I love nutty breads but I’ve never made one with pine nuts before. This one was terrific! The recipe calls for either Parmesan or Asiago cheese. I actually had both on hand but chose to use Parmesan cheese.

 

Here’s what I did.

Pour milk into bread canister.

Add an egg, olive oil and bread flour — NOT all-purpose flour. Bread flour has a lot more gluten which helps all the bread molecules adhere and stick together better which prevents the loaf from getting crumbly or dried out. Add Parmesan cheese. You can use Asiago cheese if you prefer.

Add Italian seasoning, salt and honey. You can also use sugar if you prefer. Add bread machine yeast and pine nuts. Place bread machine on setting for regular white bread and bake until done. My breadmaker bakes white bread loaves in three hours fifty minutes.

Allow bread to cool about 15 minutes. Remove from canister and butter tops and sides of bread to prevent crust from hardening.

Allow bread to cool 15 minutes longer and then slice down. An electric knife gives really clean, crisp cuts to the bread, whereas a regular serrated knife may make the bread look like you were hacking off pieces!

Here all the bread has been sliced down. This two-pound loaf provided about 20 slices of fresh homemade bread.

    This bread sounds terrific. My problem is I do not have a bread machine. How can I make this with my stand mixer and a loaf pan in my oven?

      Hey, Lisa. You will have to start with a regular bread recipe and add the ingredients for this recipe in the same pattern found on one of those recipes. (Stir the cheese and pine nuts in before adding the flour). For one loaf of bread you will probably need one whole packet of rapid rise yeast. I would start with mixing about 2-3 cups of the flour and then work the remaining flour into the dough as you knead it. You may end up using more flour this way. I hope it turns out for you. You may have to improvise a little.
