Soft Oregano Garlic Cheese Bread

I have been loving soft bread for the past few weeks. Just couldn’t stop baking them. So easy to make!  My favourites are the one with pork floss, green onion and mayonnaise, and the sweet bread with peanut butter and black cherry jam. You can see the photos on my Instagram, here. Everyone just loved it! It was gone in few minutes. Nothing can make me happier than that.

3When I was tidying up our herb garden yesterday, I found the oregano we planted few weeks back has been growing madly. I feel the urge to use some of it before any pest gets it.

DSCF7632When I was waiting for the dough to rise, I washed and picked the oregano leaves.  At the beginning, I thought I just add some olive oil and pine nuts to make a pesto paste. Then, I saw the garlic I roasted earlier. Why not, eh? I always find it’s so much fun to improvise with what I have in the kitchen.

6Then, Parmesan cheese is a must! Actually, I thought about Feta cheese first. However, I couldn’t find any in my fridge. What a disaster! Time for grocery shopping!

2Anyway, the results turned out good. I hope you like it. Enjoy!

  • All purpose flour – 2 cups
  • Lukewarm water – 3/4 cup
  • Instant yeast – 1/2 tablespoon

  2. Add lukewarm water, stir to combine. Knead the dough until soft and smooth, a little bit sticky.
  3. Cover the bowl and let it rise until doubled the size. About 30-40  minutes.

  5. Use a food processor to blend olive oil, oregano, roasted garlic and pine nuts.
  6. Grate the parmesan cheese and set aside.
  7. Prepare a lightly floured workplace. Remove the dough from bowl and cut into two.
  8. Roll out half dough to a rectangle shape. Spread the oregano garlic mixture. Top with grated parmesan cheese. Leave some space around the edges. Roll up.
  9. Slice the dough in half. Pinch one end to seal.
  10. Twist the dough over to each other. Pinch the other end to seal.
  11. Do the same for the second half dough.

  13. Preheat oven to 200°C.
  14. Before baking, brush some egg wash.
  15. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden-brown.
  16. Serve warm and enjoy!


  1. Sounds extra delish now that I know you made it with oregano fresh from the garden! One of my favorite herbs. I followed you on Pinterest so I can save it for later!

        • For this bread, I don’t have a photo with feta cheese. I have the original photos when I did the post. I can send you one if you like. Let me know.


          • I would love that Jen. I’m sitting in front of my Samsung Smart TV tonight watching Conan and comedies and before that I was watching Netflix.

            • Sounds cozy. 🙂 Just sent you an email. I have sent two photos. Hope you like it. Have a great weekend! xx


              • Thank you Jen! I haven’t checked any of my emails today because I had quite a stressful day but a good one all in all. I had a really important doctor’s appointment with my opthamologist and through the very extensive glaucoma and cataract testing when drops in my eyes they found very small cataract, which the doctor said was probably could present no problem whatsoever common I hope that’s the case. For most of the day I went around with polarized sunglasses everywhere I went cuz my eyes were sensitive to light. But after walking 1622 steps today, according to my pedometer I’m staying home today so I can do all kinds of Home things I normally do.

                I look forward to seeing what you sent. God bless you Jen.
