How to make cheese and herbs brioche bread?

In order to make this giant bread you have to follow the standard bread making steps.

First you need to warm up milk and sugar. IMPORTANT, please do not boil the milk. High temperature kills yeast and your bread will not raise. Then you add yeast to milk and mix. Then in a large bowl you need to mix flour and eggs. After this you pour in milk mixture to the flour mixture and knead the dough until smooth. For about 10 min. Then you need to add melted butter and knead for another 10 minutes. When the dough is ready, cover it tightly with a cling film and kitchen towel and let it raise in a warm place for about 2 hours. When the dough is ready, now you need to make the magic happen…

How to put together cheese and herbs brioche bread?

Now this part will be a little bit messy.

You need to roll the dough on a working area and add cheeeeeese, I mean go wild like I did, as life is too short to be skimpy with cheese and worry about cheese and calories and all of this jazz, right? Throw in whatever you like, melty Jack or Mozzarella, Edam, Maasdam, Cheddar – the sky is the limit. The more the merrier and tastier. Then you need to roll the dough into a big fat log, slice it vertically into half and twist it. Then arrange the dough into a circle. Moreover, you will notice that pieces of cheese may fall off but do not worry about it, just pick it up and add it at the end on the top of your bread. Brush with an egg and bake.
