Cheese Bread Recipe

We’ll all agree that cheese bread combo may not be the most dieting or healthy meal for one to enjoy. At the same time, may be unfortunate, that it’s one of the most delicious and filling meals we strive to enjoy, at least once in awhile. Well, my kids can eat this cheese bread every day, if I make it. Of course I can’t manage to bake breads daily, although, have to admit that I have bread dough sitting in my fridge for the most of the time. I already managed to spoil my family with homemade breads and meals, and I’m even happy they don’t ask for street food or takeouts.

This cheese bread idea came to me from a dish called adjarian khachapuri, I did edit my own recipe for that and made it into simpler cheese bread recipe.

Hope you guys give it a try and enjoy it, remember to leave your feedback on my Facebook or instagram pages, I always look forward to that.

Happy baking

Making the cheese mixture

Grate the mozzarella and set aside (I don’t buy ready grated cheese, as I find it being too dry and lower quality )

In a bowl combine the egg,feta cheese,yogurt and mix until incorporated

The mixture should be thin and very soft looking

Assembling the cheese bread

Start by preheating the oven to 490°F degrees

Place the dough onto a floured surface, lightly knead and form a ball

Using your fingertips, tap and shape the dough into a disc, then pull and stretch to make it into a thinner circle

Place it onto a lightly floured 16” round baking pan, better if the pan has small holes, that will insure proper baking

Spread the cheese, egg, yogurt mixture evenly on top of the dough

Next, sprinkle the mozzarella on the entire dough, including the edges

Fold the tips to form a stuffed crust, refer to YouTube tutorial for more details

Bake on the lower rack for 15 minutes

Then another 4-6 minutes on the higher rack

Allow to set 2-4 minutes, slice and enjoy!

Bon appetit!
