This chopped recipe method is an easy way to make fancy breads studded with fun mix-ins!
My hubby looovvvees blue cheese so this fabulous savory bread is right up his alley! This bread takes the fabulous fresh bread taste we've come to love from Rhodes and mixes it with blue cheese, Parmesan, garlic, and a little parsley - how could you go wrong?
This chopped recipe method is an easy way to make fancy breads studded with fun mix-ins (can't wait to experiment with more flavor combinations) for those of us who may be yeast dough challenged. While I'm getting better, yeast dough recipes scare the heck out of me so I love that I have Rhodes products to make baking homemade tasting bread so easy.
My husband loved this bread and has been asking me to make it again - not only because it is so delicious, but because our dog, Lucy, may or may not have swiped nearly the entire loaf right off the table. Thank goodness it was after I snapped a few shots and he had the chance to taste a slice or two.
To start, you'll let your dough thaw until soft, but still cold. Then you chop the dough, and a little garlic and grab and egg.
Next crack the egg over the chopped bread and sprinkle your garlic over the top like so.
Using your knife, chop and mix these ingredients and then add some parsley flakes and shredded Parmesan.
Chop and stir and then repeat the same process with a little blue cheese.
When everything is all mixed up, spread the dough in a prepared loaf pan. Let rise until even with the rim of the pan and bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes covering after the first 15 minutes to prevent over-browning.
This smells to die for while it bakes - my son who doesn't even like blue cheese wanted to try some because it smelled so good. That darn dog ruined his chance though so I will be making this again soon.

A fun way to make a delicious savory loaf of bread.Bleu Cheese Chopped Bread
1 loaf Rhodes Bread Dough or 12 Rhodes Yeast Dinner Rolls, thawed but still cold
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
1/4 cup grated fresh parmesan cheese

Place loaf or rolls on a cutting board. Chop into small pieces. Break egg onto the pieces and spoon garlic on top. Chop and move the dough to coat the pieces with egg and garlic.
Combine parmesan and parsley. Sprinkle onto dough and chop and coat pieces again. Sprinkle bleu cheese crumbles on top and chop to distribute through dough.
