This bread was really good! I made it in one of my nonstick cake pans so I didn't need to grease it. Also I added some garlic and a little bit more baking powder so it was really fluffy. I served it with a beef pot pie and we loved it. I can't wait to make it again. Read More

Per other reviews I added a dash of garlic powder and a dash of Italian seasoning to the batter. The bread smelled great but I'm not sure how we liked it as a loaf. I think these could possibly make great biscuits which is what I think I'll make them into if I try this recipe again. Read More

Simple and delicious! I recommend using red onion for flavor. Used almost double cheese too and the texture was still great. I'll double the recipe next time! Read More

Delicious. The texture was a bit different from other breads - almost cakelike (probably due to the egg). It was quite moist. Followed directions except that I topped with mozzarella instead of cheddar because I only had one bag of cheddar defrosted. I also used 1/4c yellow onion and 1/4c red. Would definitely make again.

This was a nice quick bread. I added a little garlic powder as others did & I needed a couple extra tablespoons of milk as it seemed a little dry. I baked it in a loaf pan & it sliced really well. I think this recipe would also make good drop biscuits. Thanks for sharing:o) Read More

I made this today and it was excellent! I mostly followed the recipe but I doubled the amount of onion and added a Tbsp of onion powder to deepen the oniony flavor. I also added about 1/3 cup minced parsley to round out the flavors. I made it with white cheddar cheese and it was lovely. Those who said it was dry may have over baked it. I used a 9" square pan and it was perfect in just 20 minutes. Read More

Although I did add more onion and cheddar than called for with the additions of my usual standby's (garlic and onion powders) we all found this bread to be quite good. I could see how this would also be wonderful as either muffins or rolls. I loved the fact that I could make a tastey quick bread that didn't entail the usual hours I spend on making traditional breads. Carol my family thanks you for this delicious and easy bread that they dunked into their soup to get up every last drop! Read More

i liked this recipe but not as a bread. it has the texture of a biscuit so i will make it again in a muffin tin or just as small mounds on a cookie sheet as biscuits. Read More
