Greetings, everyone! I hope you’re all doing well. Today, I’m excited to share with you a super quick and easy recipe that’s perfect for a satisfying lunch or dinner. With just a few simple ingredients that you likely already have in your kitchen, we’ll create something truly delicious. Let’s dive into the recipe.

Ingredients for the Dough:

  • Granulated Sugar: 1 tablespoon (20 grams)
  • Fast-Acting Yeast: 1 teaspoon (5 grams)
  • Egg: 1, large
  • Warm Milk: 1 cup (200 ml)
  • Vegetable Oil: 4 tablespoons (25 ml)
  • All-Purpose Flour: 3 cups (360 grams)
  • Salt: 1 teaspoon (6 grams)

For the Filling:

  • Cheddar Cheese: 150 grams, grated
  • Feta Cheese: 150 grams, crumbled (any type works)
  • Red Bell Pepper: 1, finely chopped
  • Long Pepper: 1, finely chopped (can use any mild pepper)
  • Dill: Fresh, chopped (to taste)
  • Nigella Seeds: For sprinkling
  • Sesame Seeds: For sprinkling

For the Topping:

  • Egg Yolk: 1, for brushing


Instructions:

  1. Prepare the Dough:
    • In a large mixing bowl, dissolve the granulated sugar and fast-acting yeast in warm milk. Let it sit for a few minutes until frothy.
    • Beat in the egg and vegetable oil until well combined.
    • Gradually add the all-purpose flour and salt, mixing until a soft dough forms. Knead the dough on a floured surface until smooth and elastic.
    • Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover with a cloth, and let it rise in a warm place until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
  2. Prepare the Filling:
    • In a bowl, mix together the grated cheddar cheese, crumbled feta cheese, chopped red bell pepper, and long pepper. Add chopped dill to your liking.
  3. Assemble:
    • Once the dough has risen, punch it down and roll it out on a floured surface into a large rectangle.
    • Spread the cheese and pepper filling evenly over the dough, leaving a small border around the edges.
    • Roll the dough up tightly, starting from one long side, to enclose the filling. Seal the edges.
  4. Prepare for Baking:
    • Transfer the roll to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Shape it as desired (a spiral or a simple loaf).
    • Brush the top of the dough with beaten egg yolk and sprinkle with nigella and sesame seeds.
  5. Bake:
    • Preheat your oven to 180°C (356°F).
    • Bake the bread for about 25 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through.
  6. Serve:
    • Let the bread cool slightly before slicing. Serve warm for a comforting and cheesy delight.

This cheesy bread is not only easy to make but also incredibly versatile. Whether you’re in need of a quick lunch, a hearty dinner, or a delicious snack, this recipe has got you covered. Enjoy the melting goodness of cheddar and feta, wrapped in a soft, homemade bread that’s sure to impress. Happy baking!
