Mini Cheesy French Loaves

These little loaves look so cute in a gift basket and taste so yummy. When I make them for gifts, I have to make sure I include my husband on my gift list!

pinch tips: How to Knead Dough




2 Hr


15 Min


1 pkg
active dry yeast (1/4 ounce)
1 1/4 c
warm water (110° to 115°)
2 Tbsp
1 tsp
garlic powder
1 tsp
1 tsp
italian seasoning
1/2 c
parmesan cheese
3 to 3 1/2 c
all purpose flour
melted butter

Directions Step-By-Step

In a bowl, dissolve yeast in water. Add the sugar, seasonings, cheese, and 2 cups flour; beat until smooth. Add enough of the remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes.
Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
Punch down; divide in half. Roll each half into a 15 x 10 inch rectangle. Roll up from long side; seal well. Cut each into three 5 inch loaves; seal ends. Place seam side down on a greased baking sheet. Brush loaves with water. Cover with plastic wrap which has been coated with cooking spray. Let rise until nearly double in size about 30 minutes.
With a very sharp knife, make three shallow diagonal cuts across the top. Bake at 400° for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden. Remove from pan; cool on a wire rack and brush with the melted butter.
Note: The prep time includes the rising time.
