Wandering into the kitchen..... Sniffing around.....Lemons sitting on the table...... open the fridge.... ooh! Cheese! *poke poke* And the dough seems ready. OK, Lemony parmesan bread it is!
That was my thought process prior to the creation of this bread. The lemon zest pairs well with the strong cheese in this bread, making it delightful for a scrambled egg sandwich!
2 tsp bread machine yeast
230 mL warm water
1/2 tbsp salt
2 1/2 cups bread flour
3 tbsp Parmesan cheese, grated
zest of 1 Meyer lemon
Turn dough out on to floured working surface. Add in Parmesan and lemon zest and knead ingredients into dough. Knead for about 5 mins. Shape into boule. Let proof in oven (make sure it is off!) for about 1 - 1.5 hours until it has doubled in size.
Preheat oven to 415 F and bake for 25 - 30 mins.
The next morning, I used this lovely bread as a vehicle for some scrambled eggs and tomatoes.
Happy eating everyone!
