Ingredients

  • 1 package dry active yeast
  • 3/4 cup warm water (105 to 120°F)
  • 1/4 cup milk, scalded
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup Crisco® Pure Vegetable Oil
  • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon dillweed
  • 2 teaspoons minced onion
  • 3 cups White Lily® Enriched Unbleached Bread Flour, divided
  • Crisco® Original No-Stick Cooking Spray
  • 1 cup (4 oz.) grated sharp Cheddar cheese

Instructions

  1. DISSOLVE yeast in warm water in large bowl. Stir in milk, sugar, salt, oil, eggs, dillweed, onion and 2 cups flour.
  2. BEAT until thoroughly mixed and smooth. Add remaining 1 cup flour; mix well (dough will be stiff but sticky). Cover with damp, lint-free cloth or plastic wrap; let rise in warm place until doubled in size, about 1 1/2 hours.
  3. SPRAY a 9-inch glass pie plate or 1 1/2 quart glass casserole with no-stick cooking spray. Add cheese to dough; stir gently until evenly distributed. Place in prepared pie plate or casserole. Cover; let rise in warm place until double in size, about 45 minutes.
  4. HEAT oven to 375°F. Brush top of dough lightly with melted butter.
  5. BAKE 30 to 35 minutes. Remove from pie plate or casserole; brush top with melted butter. Serve warm.

Baking Tip

To quickly bring eggs to room temperature, dip them in a bowl of warm water. Cut butter into small chunks and let stand at room temperature 15 minutes to soften.

Baking Tip

The amount of flour needed to knead bread dough varies based on the climate or season. Flour absorbs moisture from humid air, and loses moisture to dry air.
