Asiago Cheese Bread      
Cost: $8 - $10 (if you don't have any of the ingredients)

3 ounces Parmesan cheese, shredded on the large holes of box grater (about 1 cup)
3 cups (15 ounces) unbleached all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
4 ounces mild Asiago, crumbled (about 1 cup)
1 1/4 cups whole milk
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 large egg, beaten lightly
3/4 cup sour cream

1. Adjust an oven rack to the middle position and heat the oven to 350°. Spray a 9” x 5” loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray, then sprinkle 1/2 cup of the Parmesan evenly over the bottom of the pan.

2. In a large bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, cayenne, salt, and pepper to combine. Using a rubber spatula, mix in the cheddar, breaking up clumps. In a medium bowl, whisk together the milk, melted butter, egg, and sour cream. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until just combined (the batter will be heavy and thick). Do not overmix. Scrape the batter into the prepared loaf pan; level the surface with a rubber spatula. Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup Parmesan evenly over the surface.

3. Bake until deep golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf conies out clean, 45 to 50 minutes. Cool in the pan on a wire rack 5 minutes; invert the loaf onto the rack, turn right-side up, and continue to cool until warm, about 45 minutes. Cut into slices and serve.

i realize that people probably don't make them all the time,
or some people don't have access to a camera.

This is a great way to get rid of left over spaghetti sauce. Fast and easy and VERY fun for kids! This dish can be made vegan or non vegan depending on weather you use meat in your sauce/toppings and what cheese you use/don't use. Totally customizable!
