  • Summary

    This cheesy bread is easy to pull apart and share, and beautiful to serve at a brunch. It's great for toasting too: two types of cheese make gooey ribbons through each slice and crispy, crunchy edges. I add scallions, Dijon mustard, and black sesame seeds for extra flavor which makes the bread much more interesting. If you want to up the savory factor, add some crumbled bacon to the filling.

    Ingredients

    • 7 ounces milk (2% or whole)
    • 2 1/2 teaspoons instant or active dry yeast
    • 3 cups (360 grams) all-purpose flour
    • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, softened
    • 1 egg yolk
    • 1 teaspoon sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 2 tablespoons Vermont cheddar cheese powder (optional, for more flavor)
    • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (optional, for more flavor)
    • 2 tablespoons melted butter, for brushing the dough
    • 1/4 cup sliced scallions
    • 1 tablespoon whole-grain mustard
    • 3/4 cup grated Gruyere cheese
    • 3/4 cup grated mozzarella cheese
    • 1/4 cup toasted black or white sesame seeds
