Doesn't that look good?
It tasted just as good and the best part was that it was super easy to make with 5 ingredients! Perfect for Sunday supper with the family.
Earlier this month I told you about an exciting new project over at Real Farmwives of America (RFOA)...
Real Farmwives and Friends (have to add in the friends because as you know I'm neither a wife or a farmer) is a collection of wonderful women - many I know in real life and some just through the wonderful world of blogging - who blog about their lives on and off the farm. I'm honored to be a part of the group.
Well, we decided to team up with Gooseberry Patch to feature their cookbooks on our blogs! I think there are about 20 of us who will be cooking out of DIFFERENT Gooseberry Patch cookbooks and then giving away a copy of the cookbook on our blogs.
If you want to help choose which cookbook other RFOA ladies cook from and give away, head over to Real Farmwives of America and vote!
This is the cookbook that voters chose for me...
It came in the mail this weekend and I jumped right into it and chose my first recipe...Quick Cheese Bread.
What I really liked about this recipe is that it only had 5 ingredients and they are all staples in my pantry and fridge.
Here's what it looked like before going into the oven.
Here's what it looked like after it was out of the oven.
I baked two loaves, the one on the left was in a silicone bread pan and the one on the right was in a metal bread pan. I think that explains the difference in color...well it might have been that I used cheddar cheese on the top of the first loaf and a colby/monterey jack combo on the second one. Who knows. They both tasted delicious.
I took them to my sister's house along with two dishes of baked ravioli to feed the masses on Sunday night. My two oldest nephews loved the bread and my 7-month-old niece enjoyed it too!
Here's the complete recipe:
Quick Cheese Bread
2 c. biscuit baking mix
1-1/2 c. shredded Cheddar cheese, divided
2 eggs, beaten
3/4 c. milk
2 T. butter, diced (I used my Fair Oaks garlic & parsley butter, yum.)
Combine baking mix and one cup cheese. Whisk eggs with milk and mix with dry ingredients; mix well. Turn batter out into a well greased 9"x5" loaf pan (I used lots of Pam). Dot with butter and sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Let cool completely. Makes one loaf.
