Parmesan Herb Loaf, & happy news!

Very exciting news!!! My aunt is out of the hospital, and doing well at home!! Not much else to say about that... other than Thank God!! :)

I tried this when one of Nate's friends was visiting--and both guys liked it! (I did too, of course.) I played with the recipe a little already, but am pretty pleased with it. It's very interesting, and moist. And SUPER easy to make! I came across the recipe, thought it looked interesting, went to the kitchen, and not even 15 minutes later it was in the oven. It helps that all the ingredients are things we always have on hand!

We dipped some in olive oil/parmesan seasoning mix, but not necessary-it was great without it.

Parmesan Herb Loaf

1 1/4 Cup all-Purpose flour
3 Tablespoon grated parmesan
1 Teaspoon grated parmesan
1 1/2 Teaspoon Sugar
1/2 Teaspoon onion powder
1 1/4 Teaspoon Italian seasoning, divided
1/2 Teaspoon baking soda
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
1/2 Cup sour cream
2 1/2 Tablespoon Milk
4 1/2 Teaspoon butter, melted
1 egg white, lightly beaten

In a small bowl, combine the flour, 3 tbsp Parmesan, sugar, onion, 1 tsp Italian seasoning, baking soda, and salt. In another bowl, combine the sour cream, milk, and butter. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.
Turn onto a floured surface, adding more flour if needed. Knead for 1 minute. Shape into a round loaf, place on a baking sheet covered with cooking spray. Cut a 1/4" deep cross into the top of the loaf.
Brush with egg white. Sprinkle with remaining cheese and Italian seasoning. Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.
