Cheddar Cheese Bars

My kids wanted to try something savory and I decided to try these out.

Ingredients :

Milk - 2/3 Cup
Egg - 1
Bread Flour - 2 Cups
Shredded Cheddar, Swiss or Monterey Jack Cheese - 1 Cup
Sugar - 1 Tbsp
Salt - 1/2 tsp
Active Dry Yeast - 1 tsp
Milk - as needed
Finely Shredded Parmesan Cheese - 1/4 Cup

Procedure :
1) Add the first 7 ingredients to Bread Machine according to your manufacturer's instructions
2) Select Dough Cycle
3) When Cycle is complete (about 2.5 hours in my machine), remove dough. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes.
4) On a lightly floured surface, divide dough into half. Roll each half into a 12x8 inch rectangle.
5) cut into strips.
6) On lightly greased baking sheets, shape each strip into a bar
7) Cover and let rise in a warm place till nearly double in size (20 to 30 minutes)
8) Brush them with additional milk and sprinkle with Parmesan Cheese.
9) Bake in a 375 degree oven for 12 minutes or till golden.
10) Cool on wire racks and store.
