Cheese Herb Bread

Cheese Herb Bread from bread machine, delicious.

1 1/4 cups warm milk, almond milk, or water
2 cups bread flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 tablespoons dry milk powder
1 tablespoons brown sugar/Splenda blend
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, sliced
3 tablespoons grated Parmesan/Romano/Asiago cheese mixture
(Any cheese but sharp or extra sharp cheddar can be used - their enzymes affect rising.)
Pick and choose herbs:
1 1/2 teaspoons dried marjoram
1 1/2 teaspoons dried thyme
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon caraway seeds
2 teaspoons chopped fresh dill
(All herbs can be replaced with fresh with double the measurement)
(Rosemary and/or garlic or garlic powder are other possible ingredients.)
(Italian seasoning mix can replace ingredients.)
1 tablespoon active dry yeast
1 tablespoon Vital Wheat Gluten (optional)
DIRECTIONS: Place ingredients in bread machine in order suggested by bread machine.
I have two bread machines in the exact opposite order, which is good because I forget and I look at the order printed on the one bread machine.)
I use light crust and basic bread machine setting and reset in 15 minutes when I use the wheat flour. I want it stirred at the beginning which the wheat bread setting does not do.
Can be made using the mix dough setting and baking in the oven and other people have great luck without the bread machine.

Made it again with fat-free half-and-half for the liquid. 3 tablespoons mozzarella shreds, 2 of sharp cheddar, and added a teaspoon of black roasted sesame seeds and another of dried garlic. Excellent.
