Onion and Mizithra Cheese Bread

Onion and Mizithra Cheese Bread

So when I made Spaghetti a la Homer, I had to scour the earth (or every store in Vancouver) for Mizithra cheese. Mizithra cheese is this really hard, salty cheese that tastes AMAZING on pasta. The searching was very much worth it. The only problem is that they sell it by the ball. So now I have this huge ball of Mizithra cheese. Sure I can make more pasta (which I've obviously done) but there is only so much pasta one can eat. So...




Ah experimental bread. I've never even made normal bread before. This one requires no need to knead or let rise though. So this will act as my transition I guess. I'll make actual bread soon.







What you'll need:

-1 large onion, cut into cubes
-1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt
-2 cloves garlic, minced
-2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
-2 teaspoons baking powder
-1/2 teaspoon salt
-2 eggs
-3/4 cup milk
-2/3 cup olive oil
-1/4 cup grated Mizithra cheese


Directions:

    1.   Preheat the oven to 350˚F
    2.   Fry the onions and the garlic on a greased skillet on medium heat. Cook until the onions are transparent, then remove from heat.
    3.   In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt
    4.   In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk and olive oil. Slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry, mixing until fully incorporated.
    5.   Fold in the onion and cheese.
    6.   Pour the batter into a lightly sprayed loaf pan
    7.   Bake for around 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean

  20. Sometimes the best breads are the simplest - the ones that come together with little rhyme or reason, and surprise you as they emerge from the oven. Yours looks lovely, especially with that mizithra! Yum!

  25. This sounds amazing - I love that you don't need to knead it or let it rise. That's the thing I hate about making bread.

    I'm following you now :)
