Triple Cheese Bread Recipe

I made this cheese bread to go along with the lasagna for the mission.  I can't tell you how it tasted because I gave it all away.  It sure smelled heavenly though.

Pour 3/4 C. of water into your mixer bowl.  Add 2-1/4 tsp. of rapid rise yeast.  Add 2 T. sugar, 1-1/2 tsp. salt and 2 T. very soft butter.  Mix this together and then add 1/2 C. shredded cheddar, 1/2 C. cottage cheese and 3 T. Parmesan cheese. 
Gradually mix in 3 C. of all-purpose flour.  Knead until you have a nice smooth ball.  Place it in an oiled bowl and cover and let rise until doubled.  This takes about 1 hour.
Deflate the dough and split it in two.  I made a triple recipe but this recipe will give you 2 loaves.  Place them in greased loaf pans, cover and let them rise until almost doubled, about 30 minutes.
Bake them in a 350 degree oven for about 30-35 minutes.  Remove them and place them on racks to cool.
