  • 2 tbls. grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon sugar

  • MIX 1 cup of the flour, 1/2 cup of the cereal, undissolved yeast, cheese, sugar and salt in large bowl. Add hot water and 1 Tbsp. of the oil; mix well. Gradually add enough of the remaining flour to make soft dough, stirring until well blended after each addition. (You may not need to add all of the remaining flour.)
