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!
Cheese and Onion Bread
- 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
- Preheat oven to 375F
- Spray a loaf pan with cooking spray.
- Whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt..
- In a separate bowl, mix together the milk, melted butter, egg and sour cream until the egg is lightly beaten into the milk.
- 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.
- Gently stir in the cheese and green onions.
- Pour into the loaf pan and bake for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
