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!

  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 🙂 🙂
