Savory Garlic and Herb Swirl Bread

Does this look familiar at all? This is the exact same bread as the cinnamon raisin swirl bread only in savory form. The base dough is the same, just omit the raisins and instead of sprinkling on sugar and cinnamon, use chapped parsley and thyme, garlic powder, and parmesan cheese. I think the cheese is to blame for the larger gaps in this bread, but it makes up for it with flavor.

You can really take this theme as far as you choose to go with it. Think of flavors that go well together and then pair them up within this bread. Chocolate chips and peanut butter, bacon and blue cheese, cheddar and chives,  it’s really open. Just remember, mix any large additions into the dough and not into the swirl.

Experiment! Come up with your own savory or sweet combinations and try mixing them into a loaf of white bread!

Out of respect to the author, I will not be posting any of the recipes unless I make significant changes to them. This recipe comes from The Bread Bible by Rose Levy Beranbaum and is available at bookstores everywhere or possibly in your local library.
