  • 1 box Simple Sourdough Bread Mix
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon flour, optional
  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • 1-1½ cups finely shredded mozzarella cheese

cooking methods

  • Bake


  1. In large bowl, whisk together water, small yeast packet from bread mix and salt until dissolved. Stir in Packet 1 until well combined. With well-greased hands, gently work dough into 5-inch round loaf; place on greased baking sheet. Let dough rest for 30-40 minutes in a warm place; cover with large bowl, if desired.
  2. Preheat oven to 425°F. Lightly dust top of loaf with flour, if desired. With serrated knife, make three, ½-inch deep cuts across top. Bake 18-20 minutes or until lightly browned. Let cool.
  3. Mix butter and Italian Garlic Seasoning and melt in microwave. Cut bread on the diagonal in both directions, creating a diamond pattern. Be careful not to cut all the way through.
  4. Gently pull apart bread and brush each row with melted Italian Garlic butter mixture and stuff with mozzarella cheese.
  5. Wrap bread in foil and bake at 350°F for 10-15 minutes. Uncover and bake additional 5 minutes for a crispier outside crust. Serve immediately.
