This savory cheese and leek bread is perfect for any meal. The combination of leeks, cheese, and a hint of salt makes this bread both delicious and aromatic. With the help of a mixer and an oven, you can easily prepare this delightful dish for four people.


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 leek (white and light green parts only), finely chopped
  • 1 packet (2 1/4 teaspoons) active dry yeast
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup shredded cheese (cheddar or your favorite variety)
  • 1 cup warm broth (about 110°F)


  1. In a small bowl, combine the warm broth and active dry yeast. Let it sit for about 5-10 minutes until it becomes frothy.
  2. In the bowl of a mixer, combine the flour and salt.
  3. Add the egg to the mixer bowl and mix on low speed until combined. Then, add the frothy yeast mixture to the bowl and mix until a dough forms.
  4. Add the finely chopped leek and shredded cheese to the dough. Mix on medium speed until the ingredients are evenly distributed throughout the dough.
  5. Increase the mixer speed to medium-high and knead the dough for about 5 minutes, or until it is smooth and elastic.
  6. Transfer the dough to a lightly greased bowl, cover it with a clean towel, and let it rise in a warm place for about 1 hour, or until it has doubled in size.
  7. Punch down the risen dough and transfer it to a lightly floured surface. Shape it into a loaf and place it in a greased loaf pan.
  8. Cover the loaf pan with a towel and let the dough rise again for about 30-45 minutes, or until it has doubled in size.
  9. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  10. Bake the loaf in the preheated oven for about 30-35 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the bread sounds hollow when tapped.
  11. Remove the loaf from the oven and let it cool in the pan for about 10 minutes. Then, transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.

This savory cheese and leek bread is a wonderful addition to any meal. It pairs perfectly with soups, stews, or can be enjoyed on its own. The delightful combination of flavors and the soft, fluffy texture make it a crowd-pleaser for any occasion. Enjoy!
