Easy Cheese Bread Recipe
This Quick Cheese Bread is full of cheese goodness. There is cheese in the middle, cheese on top and cheese on the bottom and the bread comes together quickly..
There is nothing more satisfying than cutting into a warm loaf of bread and seeing gooey, delicious cheese inside!
How to Make Quick Cheese Bread
Cheese – I used a sharp Cheddar Cheese which I cut into cubes, these cheese goes into the batter. I also used grated Parmesan cheese on the bottom and top of the bread. I prefer to grate my own cheese as I find it melts better.
The chunks of Cheddar Cheese is added into dry ingredients.
Add in your liquids. The batter is sticky and more like a muffin batter than bread dough. The bottom of your bread pan is sprinkled with grated Parmesan cheese.
Then another layer of Parmesan cheese goes on top.
Bake the bread at 350 degrees F. for 45-50 minutes or until golden brown or a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.
Cool in the pan for five minutes and then remove from pan and continue cooling on a baking rack. Or, slice into it and enjoy!
How to Store Cheese Bread
It can be stored in an airtight container and kept on the counter or in the refrigerator and will last for 3-5 days.
What to Serve with Cheese Bread
Pretty much anything! It’s make a delicious sandwich and I especially enjoy it with various pasta dishes such as:
