Pepperoni Bread

1 cup scalded milk
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup warm water, 105 - 115 F
2 pkgs active dry yeast
2 eggs lightly beaten
5 cups flour

2 cups of your favorite cheese
1 pkg pepperoni

Mix milk, butter, sugar & salt.  Cool to lukewarm.  Pour warm water into a warm bowl, sprinkle yeast in & dissolve.  Add cooled mixture, eggs & 3 cups flour, stir well.  Add the rest of the flour & knead lightly on a floured board until elastic.  Shape dough into a ball & place in a greased bowl, turn over to grease all sides.  Let rise until doubled in size.

After dough has risen, split in half.  With one half, roll out into rectangle shape, nice & thin.  Layer pepperoni on the dough.  Grate cheese over pepperoni and roll up into a stuffed loaf.  Bake at 325 degrees until lightly browned on top.
