  • Salt
  • 1 leek, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons yeast
  • 1 egg
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 cup shredded cheese
  • 1 cup warm broth


  1. Prepare the yeast mixture: In a small bowl, combine the warm broth and yeast. Let it sit for about 5 minutes until it becomes frothy.
  2. Mix dry ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and a pinch of salt.
  3. Combine wet ingredients: Add the egg to the yeast mixture and whisk until well combined.
  4. Form the dough: Gradually add the wet mixture to the dry ingredients, mixing with a mixer on a low speed until a dough forms.
  5. Add cheese and leeks: Fold in the shredded cheese and finely chopped leek until evenly distributed throughout the dough.
  6. Knead the dough: Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for about 5-7 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic.
  7. First rise: Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover it with a damp cloth, and let it rise in a warm place for about 1 hour or until it has doubled in size.
  8. Shape the dough: Punch down the dough and shape it into a loaf. Place it in a greased loaf pan.
  9. Second rise: Cover the loaf pan with a damp cloth and let it rise for another 30 minutes.
  10. Preheat the oven: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  11. Bake the bread: Bake the bread in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes or until the top is golden brown and the bread sounds hollow when tapped.
  12. Cool and serve: Remove the bread from the oven and let it cool in the pan for 10 minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.

Enjoy this savory cheese and leek bread warm or at room temperature. It pairs wonderfully with soups, salads, or can be enjoyed on its own with a bit of butter. Happy baking!
