Cheddar Cheese Casserole Bread

I found this recipe in a Robin Hood booklet. The cheesy aroma of this bread is surpassed only by its taste! This recipe makes one 1 quart casserole, but it can be doubled using 2 casseroles. It can be made in bread pans, but it really looks nice when it is baked in the round or oval.

-1/2 tsp sugar -1/2 cup warm water
-1/2 tbsp active dry yeast
-1/2 cup milk, warmed
-1 tbsp butter
-1 egg, beaten
-2 cups flour
-1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
-1/2 tbsp salt
Dissolve sugar in warm water. Sprinkle in yeast. Let stand 10 minutes, then stir well. stir in warm milk, butter and beaten egg.
Combine 1 cup flour, cheese and salt. Stir well to blend. Add flour cheese mixture to wet ingredients and beat with electric mixer for 5 minutes. Add remaining flour, beating well with wooden spoon. Dough will be very sticky and pasty.
Cover and let rise in warm place until doubled (about 45 minutes). Stir down and turn into well greased 1 quart casserole. Let rise until doubled (about 30 minutes).
Bake at 375º for 30-40 minutes. Remove from casserole immediately and cool on wire rack.

  1. My mother had this recipe and made the bread when she made Veggie Beef soup. It's in my recipe box and recently pulled it out - it's still as good as I remember.

  7. I make something similar to this bread.My recipe is called Super Supper Sandwich, not only does it use cheese but you can also add in sauted onions or cooked meat.When I use the meat it makes for a great lunch box item the next day.That is if there is any left after dinner.

  14. I can smell the aroma from across the country! I have some chicken stew (leftover) and this will be the perfect accompaniment. I'm pulling out my yeast right now.

  17. I am a great fan of homemade bread. I haven't made one with cheese before. The texture of this bread, with the addition of cheese (YUMYUM) is just too good to pass by. Thank you. Will save this.

  19. Kathy, I'm wondering if that should read 1/2 teaspoon of salt instead of 1/2 tablespoon (1 1/2 teaspoons)?

  20. I can't wait to try the bread. I am looking for a good basil pesto receipt - do you have one?

  21. I made this for dinner last night. Everybody loved it and my middle boy asked when I was going to make it again. :)
    For the above person who asked about instant yeast, that's what I used. I just dumped everything but the last cup of flour in, beat it, then stirred in the last cup by hand.

  22. Made this yesterday and will be making it again, since I didn't get too much of it (grin) I don't think you can really go wrong with it ... as long as there is yeast in there ... I used about 1 tsp rapid rise (instant) yeast. My liquids we not very warm, my oven was in use, so I just let it rise several hours on the kitchen counter (covered bowl) before shaping it with a bit of flour and dumping it into a casserole. Let it rise 1/2 hour or so and it was just out of the oven when dinner was ready.

  23. I'm so glad to hear that so many of you enjoyed this recipe. Changing it up with the onion, other cheeses and even herbs is a great idea. Kathy

  24. I know this is an older post, but I just wanted to say thank you for this simple recipe. I made several batches of it last week for our church's Ethnic food and craft bazaar and they all sold out. My kids have decided this is one of their favorite breads (over my artesian bread!). God bless... and thanks so much for sharing your recipes with all of us.
