Beer Cheese Bread
yields 2 medium loaves in 8x4 inch loaf pans.

12 oz can beer
1/2 cup warm water degrees
2 Tablsp. sugar
1 Tablsp. salt
2 Tablsp. butter or margarine
8 oz. package process Swiss or American cheese
5 cups bread or all purpose flour
2 packages dry yeast
8 oz. natural Swiss cheese, cut into 1/4 inch cubes

In a large saucepan combine the beer, water, sugar, salt, butter,
and processed cheese and heat till hot. Lift off the heat and cool
to warm.

In a large mixing bowl put 2 cups flour and the yeast. Pour in the
warm cheese mixture and beat for 3 minutes with mixer flat beater.
Stir in the balance of the flour, 1/2 cup at a time, change to a
dough hook when the dough becomes too heavy for the flat beater.

Drop the cheese bits into the bowl while the mixer is running.
Knead for 10 minutes.

Place the dough in a buttered bowl and turn over to coat the ball
completely. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap until the dough has
risen to twice its size, about 1 hour.

Punch down and knead for 30 sec. to deflate. Divide the dough in
half. Roll each half into a 12x6 in. rectangle. Cut each rectangle
lengthwise into three 2 inch strips, leaving them joined at one
end by a 1/2 inch piece. Braid the strips. Tuck under the ends to
make the dough about the same length as the pan. Place in the bake

Cover with waxed paper, and let rise in a warm place until the
dough rises about 1/2 inch above the pan, about 45 min.

In a preheated oven bake at 350 degrees for about 45 min.

Remove from oven and place on a rack to cool.
