Directions


Measure milk, water, 1 egg, salt, flour, sugar and yeast into bread machine pan in the order suggested by manufacturer. Process on dough/manual cycle.

When cycle is complete, remove dough to floured surface. If necessary, knead in enough flour to make dough easy to handle. Divide dough in half. Knead cheddar cheese into one half of dough; set aside. Knead spinach and Parmesan cheese into remaining half. (Spinach dough may be slightly sticky and need additional flour.) Roll each to 15-inch rope. Arrange ropes side by side; twist together. Pinch ends to join. Place on large greased baking sheet. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 30 to 45 minutes.

Lightly beat remaining egg; brush on top of dough. Bake at 375ºF for 20 to 25 minutes or until done. Remove from pan; cool on wire rack. Leftover bread should be stored, wrapped airtight, in refrigerator or freezer.
