Asiago Sun-Dried Tomato Bread

Asiago Sun-Dried Tomato Bread is scrumptious. I’m always game to try a new bread recipe. So when I wanted to make a loaf of home-baked bread for some friends who moved into a new house in mid-August, I found this one for Asiago Sun-Dried Tomato Bread that I’d been wanting to try for some time. I ended up making several loaves of this tasty breadmaker bread. This one contains asiago cheese, reconstituted sun-dried tomatoes, basil and black pepper for seasonings and flavor. Because it’s a bread made in the breadmaker, it only takes about 10 minutes preparation time and then it’s ready to go.

Given a choice, I’d eat home made bread for every meal of the day! Breakfast, lunch and dinner. No kidding. Whether toasted with butter and jellies, served with fried eggs on top, eaten cold and plain, or enjoyed hot right out of the breadmaker oven–I love fresh home-baked bread.

If you’re looking for a tasty bread recipe then this one is a great one to make. I do recommend one critical addition to the original recipe: add a few teaspoons of vital wheat gluten so the bread raises properly. I always use vital wheat gluten when using wheat flour, and even though this bread uses regular bread flour it still needs the additional vital wheat gluten. That’s because the cheese and sun-dried tomatoes provide enough density that the bread raises much better with the vital wheat gluten included rather than not. If you’re a bread lover, prepare yourself for a great bread to accompany any Italian main dish. But why stop at Italian? This will go with any soup, salad or main dish entree.

I used these ingredients plus vital wheat gluten. The plastic container contains dry milk powder, the bowl contains granulated sugar.

Cut tomatoes into small pieces and place in hot water for about 5 minutes to reconstitute.

Cool bread about 15 minutes in bread oven before removing. Brush butter on top and sides to prevent the crust from hardening. Allow bread to sit about 15 more minutes before slicing down.

Slice down bread and serve with butter. This is also a good bread for dipping in a herb-infused oil mixture.

    Wow! I’d love to know which bread machine you are using. What a beautiful loaf. This bread was absolutely yummy.

      Thanks, Kate. I have a Zojirushi BB PAC-20. It makes a really wonderful loaf of bread and has two paddles so the kneading is a little better than those machines with only one paddle, I think. Thanks for stopping by.
