Bread is one of those amazing things, that quite often take anything you really throw at it. I’d read Joanna’s post on Cheese and Onion bread last week and it had wedged in my mind. I wanted in on that, and had grand visions of sumptuous burgers with lashings of sauce dripping down my chin and (probably quietly dripping down into my sleeve. ) Yep, I wanted in on that alright.
I didn’t have some of the ingredients that Joanna had used so I decided to throw what I did have in there and see what the results would be. Cheese, caramelised onions…hell, lets shove some beer in there too.
Beer, Cheese and Onion Bread
200g sourdough starter
1 tsp dried yeast
(mix together and leave over night)
Next day mix sponge and
wait for about 40 minutes and then add
150g grated cheese
4 tbls caramelised onions*
2 tsp salt
Mix again. For a wonderfully detailed example of what to do with your bread after it’s mixed see Joanna’s post here. Other wise do what you normally do in a bready fashion.
I baked mine at 230 for 10 minutes and then down to 210 for another 8 or so minutes, swapping shelves.
The beer, cheese and caramelised onions give a lovely chewy, soft texture. Perfect for burgers or as pictured above, an easy sautéed mushroom and melted cheese lunch.
