   Recipe by: Maggie Workman <MWORKMAN@VM.CC.PURDUE.EDU>
         In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in water.  Stir in nonfat dry milk,
   1 cup cheese, whole egg, oil, sugar, salt, ground red pepper and 3 cups
   of the flour.  Beat well with a wooden spoon.  Gradually stir in enough
   of the remaining flour until the dough pulls away from the side of the
   bowl.
   
         Turn onto a lightly floured work surface and knead for 5 minutes,
   adding additional flour as necessary, until the dough is smooth and
   elastic and only slightly sticky. (Alternatively, the dough can be mixed
   and kneaded in a stand up electric mixer fitted with a dough hook.)  Place
   the dough in a lightly oiled bowl, turn to coat, and cover with plastic
   wrap.  Let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 1-1/2
   hours.
   
         Punch down the dough and turn it out onto a floured work surface;
   divide it in half and shape each half into a ball.  Place balls on an
   oiled
   baking sheet, cover loosely with plastic wrap and let rise until doubled,
   30 to 40 minutes.
   
         Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Brush the risen loaves
   with beaten egg white.  With a sharp knife, make three 1/2 inch deep
   slashes in each loaf.  Sprinkle loaves with the remaining 1 tablespoon
   cheese.  Bake for 25 to 35 minutes, or until the loaves sound hollow
   when tapped on the bottom.  Cool on a wire rack.
   
         Makes two 6-inch loaves, 8 slices each.
