Cheddar Cheese and Onions Bread - Recipe

Good morning,

Since I'm home again, of course I have to make bread!

This recipe is made with raw onions and shredded cheddar cheese.  It is great for sandwiches or with dinner.  Yum!

If you'd like to make it, my recipe is below.



Cheddar Cheese and Onions Bread - Recipe


1 egg

2 T vegetable oil

1-1/2 t salt

2 T sugar

1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1/3 cup chopped onion

1 cup warm water

3-1/2 cups bread flour

2 rounded t dry yeast


Place all ingredients in large capacity bread machine in order given. Set on dough cycle and turn on.

The first dough cycle on most machines is about 40 minutes. Watch the action to be sure a dough ball forms at least 1/3 way through the cycle. Add a little flour or water if necessary to get the correct consistency.

When first dough cycle finished, remove from machine and place in a greased bowl for first rise. Place the bowl in a warm place such as the oven with the light, but no heat turned on. If you place it out on the counter in a warm place, cover with a damp cloth.

This batch required about 1 hour for the first rise. Keep in mind that the temperature in your kitchen and the mood of the yeast can change the time required for the dough to rise.

After the first rise, punch down/knead gently the dough to remove excess bubbles.

If you are using crockery or glass pans/bowls for baking, set the empty bread pans in a warm place, too. I use my second oven with the light turned on.

If preheating pans, remove from oven.

For this batch, I am using a pan that makes 4 mini loaves.

Allow bread to rise once again; this batch should take about 40 mins for the second rise, then bake at 350 degrees F for 35 mins. Turn out to racks to cool immediately.

Lois, it's a sure bet that you an Kjell are back home again when you post a new recipe. I'm going to return to the hand kneading process this week. Last week I made a rosemary-pepper bread following a recipe in our bread machine book - not one of my best efforts. The birds did seem to enjoy some of the leftovers.

Good thing I had just ate when I read your post. Even so, your bread still looked delicious.

Good morning,

No, Montanagirl, I haven't opened the bake shop yet. It is an option for a retirement plan, though. ;) I just have to stay home long enough to do it.

This bread was exceptionally yummy. It's a favorite around here.

Thanks so much, everyone, for stopping by.

Very best,
