Pub Beer and Tillamook Cheddar Bread Bowls

  • In a large mixing bowl combine the flour and beer and mix by hand until it is fully incorporated. Cover with plastic wrap and allow the mixture to rest for 30 minutes.

  • Add the yeast, salt, cheese, and green onion and work the dough by hand until the ingredients are fully incorporated.

  • On a floured surface knead the dough by hand for 3-5 minutes or until it feels stiff. Place the dough back in the bowl and cover. Allow to rise in a warm area for about 2 hours or until the dough has doubled in size.

  • Remove the dough from the bowl and split the dough evenly into 2 pieces. Gently ball both portions and set them on a parchment lined and pan sprayed sheet pan. Press the balls into disks, and lightly flour the surface. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to rise another hour.

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Brush the exterior of the bread with the remaining beer, and if desired lance the bread with a sharp pairing knife with an X pattern.

  • Place the sheet pan on the center rack of the oven and cook for about 30 minutes or until golden brown.

  • Bread should exceed 200 degrees when measured with a thermometer. Cool the bread for at least 30 minutes before consuming.
