New Bread Recipe

No Knead Cheese & Herb Bread

I have not been baking bread lately because I can get such excellent bread at the General Bakeshop in Brewster and, if I'm in town on a Sunday morning, the She-Wolf Bakery.


However, someone give me a recipe for No Knead Cheese & Herb Bread, which uses the no-knead technique made famous by Jim Lahey in My Bread. This is so much easier than the levain bread technique that I just went and did it.


The bread incorporates 1-1/2 cups of cheddar cheese (I used finely shredded Sargento sharp cheddar from the supermarket), 1 cup (!) of chopped chives and 3 tablespoons of finely chopped thyme. The only thing that takes any time is chopping the herbs. Apart from that it's just waiting for the bread (without the fillings) to rise, folding in the fillings and baking in a preheated dutch oven. 


Here you can see the cheese and herbs that infuse this bread.
