  • 3 cups bread flour all purpose is fine
  • 2 ¼ teaspoon instant yeast
  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 8 ounces warm water


  • 1 ½ cups shredded Gouda
  • 1 cup shredded Havarti
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan, plus more for sprinkling
  • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced chives
  • 2 teaspoons minced thyme
  • 2 teaspoons minced oregano


  • ½ cup (1 stick) salted butter, melted and slightly cooled


  • Dough: Pour flour, yeast, salt, and oil into a mixing bowl and whisk together. Add water, ¼ cup water at a time and mix together until soft and sticky dough forms.
  • Turn dough out onto a clean and lightly floured surface and knead for 2 to 3 minutes, until smooth dough forms.
  • Lightly grease a mixing bowl, add dough and cover. Allow dough to rest and double in size, about 1 hour.
  • Filling: Place all ingredients into a mixing bowl and toss together.
  • To assemble: Preheat oven to 400˚F.
  • Divide dough in half and cover one of the balls of dough. Roll other half of dough until ½″ thick (about 12”x 24” rectangle).
  • Cut out 18 (4”x 4”) squares of dough. Brush butter onto the surface of each square and spread 2 tablespoons of filling over the surface.
  • Stack three squares atop one another and carefully press them into a lightly greased loaf pan so they’re ‘standing up’. Repeat and continue to stack until all the squares are neatly in the loaf pan.
  • Once the pan is filled, sprinkle the top with grated Parmesan and repeat with the remaining ingredients in the other loaf pan.
  • Place the pans onto a baking sheet and bake for 22 to 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and Allow breads to cool, about 10 minutes.
  • Remove from loaf pans and serve with warm marinara sauce.


  • *Makes 2 (2.5” x 5”) loaves
