Savory Cheddar Cheese Bread

This savory cheddar cheese bread is a perfect anytime snack or served as a side with your lunch or dinner. It's also a great side when you're just having a salad.

This cheddar cheese bread recipe was given to us by a good friend years ago. I had the recipe written a little recipe card and found it a while back.

The last time I used this recipe I made it as a muffin Quick Cheddar Cheese MuffinsYou'll find this to be the same recipe but this time I used extra sharp cheddar cheese instead of mild.

I started off by mixing the flour, baking powder, butter, and salt in my KitchenAid Stand Mixer. Mixing on low speed with the beater bar attachment until it looked like coarse crumbs.

Then I added the oats, cheese, milk, and eggs one at a time. Continue mixing on low speed until batter forms.

I sprayed a 9-inch x 5-inch bread pan with Pam Non-Stick Spray and transferred the batter to the pan.

I preheated the oven to 375 degrees and baked my savory cheddar cheese bread for 60 minutes. When a butter knife came out of the center clean I knew it was ready.

The bread popped right out of the pan. I placed it on a rack and let cool for about 15 minutes before cutting it.

The result was the outside of the bread is nice and crusty while the inside is soft with a nice cheddar cheese flavor.

  1. Oh, awesome! I love the idea of adding the cheese to the actual bread dough recipe instead of simply melting cheese on top a slice. I love this recipe Sam. Thank you!!!

    1. So glad you like this one Cynthia. It is so good warm with the butter melting on it. The only problem is that I keep eating it until it's gone :) Thanks

  2. I'll be trying this recipe soon! Last week I made the Cheddar Cheese Corn Bread, and it was delicious. I'll probably never make corn bread again without adding the cheese.

    1. Thanks so much Daphne, I'm glad you enjoyed the corn bread. You can also make the cheddar cheese bread in a muffin. Also very good :)

  3. I have now made this wonderful recipe more than once and all who tried it have loved it!
