Broccoli Cheese Pretzel Bread...

 Since I post so many recipes for sweets, I figure it's time for a more salty, savory recipe...

So far all those who wish they didn't have to share the 'table' basket of bread at their favorite restaurant, here is a recipe for broccoli cheese pretzel bread...

Broccoli Cheese Pretzel Bread
  • 2 cups broccoli florets (finely chopped)
  • 1/2 yellow onion (finely chopped)
  • olive oil
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 TSP baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 TBSP honey
  • 1/2 bulb roasted garlic (finely chopped)
  • 1/2 cup medium cheddar cheese (shredded or 1/2″ cubed)
  • 2 TBSP baking soda
  • 1 cup hot water
  • salt & pepper

  • Start by preheating the oven to 375 degrees. Next, place the broccoli and onion in a medium-sized pan., drizzle with some olive oil and cook on medium-high heatuntil the onions soften, about 5 minutes. Season with salt & pepper and set aside to cool.
  • For the dough, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Then, add the buttermilk, honey, and stir until a soft dough forms. Take dough out of the mixing bowl and knead on a floured surface until it becomes firm, about 2-3 minutes. Fold in the broccoli mixture, garlic, and cheese. Knead the bread for another minute to help combine, adding a bit more flour if necessary.
  • Place the dough on a prepared baking tray and form into a loaf (mine was about 12″ long and 3″ high). With a knife, make six diagonal slices across the top of the loaf. Dissolve remaining baking soda in a cup of hot water and using a pastry brush (or hands in-lieu) cover the loaf in the solution.
  • Finally, top the loaf with some coarse salt and ground black pepper, pop into your preheated oven and bake for 40-45 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Total cook time…1 hour
