I don’t know what winter has been like in your neck of the woods, but around here, February has been insanely beautiful (which is completely bizarre). The gender reveal on Valentine’s Day? Oh yeah, it was a balmy 63 degrees outside.
We. ate. outside. Yes. In February. No coats. I know. Crazy.
Until this week when it got cold again-as in temperatures in the 30s-which is still not awful. Especially when I look at the snow my friends are shoveling back East. But it hasn’t been a wintery-kind-of-winter, so I forgot our coats all week long.
With the chill in the air, all I wanted was a fat bowl of soup-Grandma’s minestrone, to be precise. And this homemade parmesan crazy bread, which is so parmesan crazy good that you should make sure you’re never home alone with it.
It’s such a simple bread recipe and it feeds a group. Unless, of course, you didn’t take me seriously and you were home alone with it for a while…
- 1 T. instant yeast
- 1 1/2 c. warm water
- 2 T. sugar
- 1 t. salt
- 3 c. flour
- 1/4 c. butter
- 1 c. Parmesan cheese
- 2 t. Lawry's Course Ground Garlic Salt
- In a big bowl, combine yeast and warm water.
- Add sugar, salt, and flour and mix.
- Let dough rise for 20 minutes.
- Melt butter in a 9x13 pan.
- Spread dough evenly into the pan, then flip it over so both sides of the dough are coated in butter.
- Combine the garlic salt and cheese, then sprinkle on top of the dough.
- Let dough rise 20 more minutes.
- Cook at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
- You can use freshly grated parmesan or the Kraft sprinkle stuff in the green bottles. Either will work. You can also mix up your cheeses. I did part freshly grated Romano and part Kraft parmesan that was in my fridge.
