Yield: 1 loaf
In a mixing bowl, combine 2 1/2 cups flour, sugar, yeast, salt and pepper.
In a saucepan, heat water and butter to 120-130 F. Add to dry ingredients; beat just until moistened. Stir in 3/4 cup of cheese, onion and remaining flour; beat until smooth.
Turn onto a lightly floured surface; shape into a ball. Place in a greased 2-quart round baking dish. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 20 minutes.
Bake at 350 F. for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown. Sprinkle remaining cheese over loaf. Bake 5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Remove from dish to a wire rack.
