Cheddar Cheese Bread Recipe

Yields15 Servings

Cheddar cheese is a tart and tangy cheese depending on its sharpness. The sharper the cheese, the tangier the taste. You can use any variety of cheddar for this recipe to suit your taste. You can use grated cheddar as the recipe indicates or small chunks of cheddar if you want a burst or flavor in your loaf. You can also sprinkle some grated cheddar on top of the loaf towards the end of the baking cycle. Do this quickly and don’t lift the lid again or the loaf could fall or sink. This bread is great with soup or you can make a super grilled cheese sandwich. It’s a cheese lovers favorite.

 1 teaspoon coarse black pepper

 1⁄4 cup nonfat dry milk powder
