Cheese and Onion Bread

During the cold months, we love to have soup, chili and stews. To go along with a nice hot bowl of soup or stew, I like to make biscuits or different types of bread. Sometimes, I do not have the time to make a traditional bread with yeast. In those days, I make a quick cheese bread like the kind in this recipe. It does not require yeast, but rises with the baking powder. The cheddar cheese and sliced green onions, give this bread a wonderful flavor and it is perfect for dipping into any broth!

  • 3 cups (15 ounces) all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk (I use 2%)
  • 3 tablespoons butter , melted
  • 1 large egg lightly beaten
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese
  • 6 green onions , thinly sliced
  1. Preheat oven to 375F
  2. Spray a loaf pan with cooking spray.
  3. Whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt..
  4. In a separate bowl, mix together the milk, melted butter, egg and sour cream until the egg is lightly beaten into the milk.
  5. Pour the wet mixture into the bowl with the dry ingredients and use a wooden spoon to combine. Do not over mix. Stir just until the dry ingredients are incorporated into the wet mixture.
  6. Gently stir in the cheese and green onions.
  7. Pour into the loaf pan and bake for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.




  1. Now this is my kind of savory bread. I would love a piece hot out of the oven. 🙂 Have a wonderful holiday with your family Steve. 🙂

  2. Yummy!. Thanks for sharing this great post. Love to try this recipe at home. Keep posting.

  3. Came out perfect. It’s pretty much a moist, cheese and onion scone in loaf form. I used a teaspoon of garlic and herb salt instead of reguar, and mayonnaise instead of sour cream as no sour cream in the house. Went very well on the side of a cottage pie 🙂 🙂
