Country Fair Herb Hearth Bread
Makes 2 loaves
4 to 4-1 / 2 cups whole wheat flour
1 / 2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 / 2 cup finely chopped fresh parsley
2 envelopes FLEISCHMANN’S RapidRise Yeast
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1 / 2 teaspoon ground sage
1 / 2 teaspoon dried rosemary
1 / 2 teaspoon dried thyme
2 cups very warm water (120o to 130oF)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 egg white, beaten
In a large bowl, combine 1 cup flour, cheese, parsley, undissolved yeast, salt, sugar and herbs. Gradually add water and olive oil. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally. Stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes. Cover; let rest 10 minutes.
Divide dough in half; shape each into 5-inch smooth ball. Place on 2 greased baking sheets. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 30 to 45 minutes.
Brush with egg white; sprinkle with sesame seed. Bake at 375oF for 25 to 30 minutes or until done. Remove from sheets; cool on wire racks.
