  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 packet (2 1/4 teaspoons) active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm milk (110°F/45°C)
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter (for brushing)


  1. Activate Yeast: Combine warm milk and sugar in a small bowl. Sprinkle yeast on top and let it sit for 5-10 minutes until frothy.
  2. Prepare Dough: In a large bowl, mix flour and salt. Add the yeast mixture, melted butter, and egg. Stir until a dough forms, then knead on a lightly floured surface for 8-10 minutes until smooth and elastic.
  3. First Rise: Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover with a kitchen towel, and let it rise in a warm place for about 1 hour, or until doubled in size.
  4. Prepare Cheese Mixture: In a medium bowl, mix mozzarella, cheddar, Parmesan, garlic, and parsley.
  5. Shape Dough: Punch down the dough and roll it out on a lightly floured surface into a large rectangle. Evenly sprinkle the cheese mixture over the dough.
  6. Assemble Bread: Cut the dough into strips, then cut the strips into squares. Stack the squares and place them in a greased loaf pan, arranging them to fill the pan.
  7. Second Rise: Cover the loaf pan with a kitchen towel and let the dough rise again for about 30 minutes. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  8. Bake: Brush the dough with melted butter. Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, until golden brown and the cheese is bubbly.
  9. Serve: Let the bread cool slightly before serving. Enjoy it warm, pulling apart the pieces to share.
