   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
   4               cups  bread flour
   1           envelope  fast-acting yeast
   4              ounce  sweet Italian sausage -- casing removed
   12             ounce  regular beer -- or bottle amber
   2        tablespoons  sugar
   2          teaspoons  salt
   4             ounces  shredded Cheddar cheese -- (about 1 cup)
   4                     scallions -- chopped (about 1/2 cup)
   2        tablespoons  butter -- melted

Prep: 20 mins
Rise: 1 hr 30 mins
Bake: 30 mins to 35 mins at 350F
Yield: 2 loaves (16 slices each)

Mix together 2 cups flour and yeast in large bowl.

Cook sausage in small skillet, breaking apart with wooden spoon, 
until cooked through, about 5 minutes.

Heat beer, sugar and salt in saucepan until 120 to 130F on 
instant-read thermometer. Pour into flour-yeast mixture in bowl. Beat 
with wooden spoon for about 100 strokes.

Add remaining 2 cups flour, 1/2 cup at a time. Add sausage, 1/2 cup 
cheese, scallions; knead with hands.

Transfer dough to lightly floured surface. Knead until smooth and 
elastic, about 8 minutes, adding flour as needed to prevent sticking. 
Transfer dough to greased bowl, turning to coat. Cover with clean 
kitchen towel or plastic wrap. Let rise in warm place until doubled 
in volume, about 1 hour.

Punch dough down. Divide in half. Let rest 5 minutes. Shape each half 
into oblong loaf, about 10 x 3". Transfer to greased baking sheet. 
Cover with clean kitchen towel. Let rise in warm place until doubled 
in volume, 30 minutes.

Heat oven to 350F. Using razor blade or sharp knife, make long slash 
down center of each loaf. Sprinkle 1/4 cup cheese down center of each loaf.

Bake in 350F oven for 15 minutes. Brush each loaf with 1 tablespoon 
melted butter. Bake another 15 to 20 minutes or until golden and 
loaves sound hollow when tapped on the bottom. Remove to wire rack to 
cool. Serve slightly warm.
