    16-20 servings


  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 1 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 3-3/4 to 4-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 egg
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted, divided
  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano


  • In a small bowl, pour boiling water over cereal. Add butter. Let stand until mixture cools to 120°-130°, stirring occasionally.
  • In a large bowl, combine 1-1/2 cups flour, sugar, yeast and salt. Beat in oat mixture until moistened. Add egg. Beat on medium speed for 3 minutes. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a stiff dough.
  • Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Cover and let rest for 15 minutes.
  • Punch dough down. Press dough into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes.
  • Brush with 4 tablespoons melted butter. Bake at 375° for 15 minutes. Brush with remaining butter. Combine the cheese, basil, garlic powder and oregano; sprinkle over bread. Bake 10-15 minutes longer or until golden brown.
