Broccoli Cheese and Herb Bread Ring

An outstanding addition to any meal, this savory bread stays moist and tender as Parmesan cheese melts bakes into it.


  • Prep Time : 25 plus 1 hour for rising min
  • Ready Time : 25 min




  • 2½ cups flour
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter, melted, divided
  • Salt, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon active dry yeast
  • 3/4 cup milk, warmed
  • 2 tablespoons extra- virgin olive oil
  • 1 head broccoli, cut into small pieces
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh oregano
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh chives
  • ½ cup pine nuts
  • 6 ounces parmesan cheese, cubed


Dough: In the bowl of a standing electric mixer, combine flour, egg yolk, 2 tablespoons butter and salt. In a separate small bowl, dissolve yeast in milk. Add to flour mixture. Mix until a homogenous and elastic dough forms. Cover and set aside to rise until doubled in volume, about 30 minutes.

Cook: In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add broccoli and season with salt. Add oregano, parsley, chives and pine nuts, and sauté for about 7 minutes. Set aside.
Fill: Preheat oven to 350°. On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to a rounded long rectangle, 1-inch thick. Brush with 6 tablespoons of butter and distribute broccoli mixture and cubed parmesan along the center. Roll over to form a cylinder, and pinch to close. Fit the cylinder into a buttered bundt pan to make a ring. Set aside to rise until it fills the mold, about 30 minutes.

Bake: Bake for 50-60 minutes, or until golden brown. Unmold and serve warm.

    Can you freeze this and can you use bagged broccoli? It seems perfect for Shavuous.

  2. This is a fantastic Shavous recipe… You can definitely freeze it. The bagged broccoli is of course fine, I would just pick it over to remove any woody stem pieces which can be unpleasant to eat. You can proceed with the instructions for cooking the broccoli as listed in the recipe. Enjoy!
