A big thank you to Nicole for setting up this event, and of course to Peter Reinhart for his wonderful book. I’ve had it many years, but never imagined that one day I’d say that “…I baked them all!”
ROASTED ONION AND ASIAGO CHEESE MICHE
This last bread took 3 days to prepare. The sourdough sponge, made on the first day, was mixed and shaped on the second day, and after a night in the fridge it was topped with roasted onions and grated asiago cheese, then finally baked. I made a half recipe, which was still enough for one big round loaf.
The onions can be prepared the day before…
and added to the bread 30 minutes before baking ….
The dough contains a lot of grated asiago cheese, so each bite acquires its sharp flavor, mellowed by the sweet roasted onions. What a beautiful combination!
