Herbed Beer Cheese Bread -52 Appetizers and Simple Recipes

Pin It Now!

I love Beer Bread!  and Beer and Cheddar just pairs wonderfully, so it's just natural to stuff a cup of sharp cheddar into Beer Bread and you have something amazing!

The beer gives the bread a yeasty flavor, loaded with delicious smells.

This is one of the easiest loafs of bread you could ever make.  Simply mix and bake,  no rising, proofing or those other complicated sounding baking terms.

Serves deliciously with any soup or stew, makes a great ham and cheese sandwich.  Me, I love to serve up with a specialty cheese like yesterdays Honey Rosemary Spreadable Goat Cheese!

So,  I am pleased to list this as one of my Growing list of  "52 Ways to Cook Side Dish Recipes"!!!

Sure the meat gets all the glory but real cooks know it's the spread... the specialty Side Dishes that makes a meal rise or fall. Here's a few of my favorite recipes that will help to create that illusive COMPLETE MENU!

LOTS of Potato Sides, Vegetable Sides, Specialty Salads, Bread and MORE!


This simple recipe has also been added to my growing list of "52 Simple but Next Level Dishes"!

Kind of an odd title for these posts. But the longer sentence is... Simple recipes that are easy and inexpensive that will take your cooking to the next level... Things like easy pickled items (I always have a jar of Pickled Red Onions for sandwiches in my fridge). Or how about the easiest bread to make in the world... Beer Bread that is tasty on it's own but also makes a wonderful open face pizza style sandwich... With easy to make Tomato Sauce. Or how about Roasting Garlic for a spread on toast points for a unique appetizer. Infusing Oil with Herbs or spices or spicy peppers. Or how about making your own BBQ sauce. Nothing sets you apart as a grill master like setting out a jar of your own specialty BBQ Sauce.

You get the idea. These recipes are very simple, take very little time but will set you apart as a better cook...
