I made a big loaf from the dough, you can divide the dough in two equal parts and make two medium sized loafs.
You can also keep the dough for final proofing in a loaf pan and bake the bread to get a sandwich bread.
After, 25 minutes, either spray water on the loaf or brush it with some more milk wash to get a nice crust and brown color. Brush again once the bread is baked.
Keep the bread to cool on a wire rack and cut it when it has completely cooled down or slightly warm.
Add more cheese if you want a cheesy filling in the bread. I like to make moderately flavored bread with moderate amount of cheese in it.
Store the bread in a zip lock or air-tight container and finish the bread within 3-4 days. The bread can be frozen for a month, but trust me you will never get to freeze the bread as it gets finished off too quickly!!
