Onion and Cheese Supper Bread

This is such a quick and easy recipe that goes great with soup, salad, stew or chili.
The recipe has been adapted from different recipes. Many things can be added instead of just onions, like left over bacon or broccoli. Be creative and use what you have. It is good alternative to make when time is short and a hungry family awaits.
  • 2 cups flour (may use half whole wheat)
  • 1 tbsp. baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 cup mayonaise
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp. melted butter 
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup old cheddar cheese
  • 2 tbsp. snipped parsley
  1. Cook onion in butter until softened, about 5-7 minutes.
  2. Mix all the dry ingredients together and add milk, egg, and mayo.
  3. Take the dough and place into a greased 8 or 9" round pan.
  4. Top with onion, cheese and parsley. ( I added half in the dough and topped it with the other half).
  5. Bake at 400 for 20-25 minutes.


  1. This sure looks good I will have to try it. Thanks...

  2. My official dumb question of the day....what's malted butter? this bread looks awesome...just gotta figure out that part lol. google here I come!!

  3. I will save this and try it one day when we have home made soup.

  4. I, too am wondering what malted butter (do you mean "melted butter"?) is...found this on a search:

    Malted Butter

    Take 2 cups of butter, 1 cup of malt, and mix thoroughly. When desired to be used on bread, mix in water till of the consistency to spread. A little salt may be added to suit taste.

  5. I was wondering what malted butter was also. "Melted" makes much more sense!

  6. Don't think it can better than that ...yummers. I am going with the rest here...possibly melted butter?

  7. ok has been had, and i corrected is melted butter. however malted butter does sound interesting.....of any of you are up for trying it that way, let me know how it turns out.....;^D

  8. Instead of having this for supper, I made it for breakfast this morning and served it with baked beans. YUM!

    Thanks. This plus Kathy's salisbury steak are two new permanent additions to our repertoire. :)

  9. this looks good, can it be made with oat flour instead of wheat?

  10. I made this last night, using buttermilk instead of regular milk. It's very dense, moist, a great accompaniment to a light supper of salad (greens with yellow tomato, green cabbage, candy onion slices) and scalloped corn. No way can anybody complain of "too little to satisfy my appetite" if this bread is part of it!
