Emily from Beaver Dam, WI (2018 Week 2: Bread)




Beaver Dam, WI

Baking Challenge


Give your bread a name and tell us about your recipe.

Wisconsin’s Favorite Flatbread. I used a cheese flatbread recipe but rather than using 8 oz of cheddar, I did 4 oz of extra sharp cheddar (really there is no other cheddar) and a sun-dried tomato-basil infused cheddar to give the bread an herby tang. And it accompanied my fresh gazpacho perfectly!

Would you describe yourself as a rogue baker, or do you strictly adhere to the recipe?

A modest rogue – I may attempt to swap a flavor here or there, but with bread especially you can’t safely go too rogue and have a successful outcome. (Oh the joys of chemistry and baking!)

Tell us about how you added a Wisconsin twist to your bread creation.

Cheese, glorious cheese!

How did you do?

Absolutely lovely.
