I have a delightful recipe for you today–Cheese Bread. It’s a quick and easy bread that’s a great side for soups, salads, or main dishes of any kind, including pasta. This tasty bread has only 7 ingredients and starts with Bisquick which makes it incredibly easy. Add melted butter, milk, an egg, cheese, parsley and onions and that’s it! I’ve made this recipe in a round 9″ round baking dish as well as doubling the recipe for a 9×13″ baking dish. It comes out very nicely either way. We served it as both a lunch and a dinner bread.
I found this recipe in a local magazine as it was reprinted from an area church cookbook. I loved the ease of this recipe. If you want to be adventurous you can add additional seasonings or spices to amp up the flavors, although for a bread lover like myself, I really enjoyed it pretty close to the way it was written. I used fresh parsley since I had it on hand, but I’m sure other fresh herbs like dill weed, thyme, rosemary, marjoram and even sage would work in this recipe.
I was making a meal for someone in August and included Cheese Bread as a side. I nibbled on the crumbs and enjoyed it so much I made the bread again a couple of days later for for a pool party we were having right before Labor Day. That time I got to enjoy several pieces. Yum. I loved the easiness with which this recipe is prepared, because whether I made a single batch or a double batch, this recipe was oven ready in 10 minutes!
If you want a quick and easy bread recipe to make up for lunch or dinner (where you will probably have all the ingredients on hand), then Cheese Bread is one you should try. It not only tastes great, but it’s also economical for those trying to stay within a small budget. For those of you who are bread lovers, like me, you will find yourself going back for another slice, or two. 🙂
