~ Cheddar ~ Garlic ~ Tarragon Bread
Basic bread dough recipe:
1 3/4 - tsp salt
1/2 - tsp yeast
3 - cups unbleached flour
1 1/2 cups water
To this basic recipe you can add whatever flavorings you like,the flavors added here are as follows:
1 1/2 - cups cheddar cheese shredded
2 - cloves of fresh chopped garlic
2 - tsp tarragon fresh or dried
In a medium sized mixing bowl,combine dry ingredients and mix with a whisk or fork to thoroughly incorporate together. Add the water and mix gently but thoroughly. Cover bowl with plastic wrap (I use press ~ N ~ seal) and let set on table or counter for at least 12 hours.
Sorry,no photos of this part,as it was super late last night when I mixed up the dough.
This is what my dough looked like after about 15 hours on the table.
At this point the dough is very sticky,take a spatula and scrape the dough out of the bowl onto a well floured surface.
Since the dough is very sticky,be sure to flour your hands! Roll the dough to coat with flour.
Baking your bread: To bake your bread you will need a baking dish with a snug fitting lid. Check manufactures directions,to make sure that you can place your dish in the oven empty,while the oven is pre-heating.
Place baking dish in cold oven,preheat oven to 450 degrees.
When oven has reached 450 remove baking dish carefully from oven and place dough in it. Place lid on dish and return to oven for 30 minutes.
Remove from the oven and enjoy :) Original recipe found at Simply So Good check it out.
