Cheesy Beer Bread

This is just a little something I threw together on a whim. Hehehe....as if! Actually I saw this at Brown Eyed Baker a few weeks ago and have had it in the back of my mind ever since. So today I brought it to the front of my mind and eventually out of my oven. (Hope that wasn't too graphic)
This is a quick bread so there's no yeast, or waiting for the dough to rise. Even thought that sounds pretty simple I managed to make a mess throughout the entire kitchen....fortunately my kitchen is pretty small.
I followed her recipe pretty closely, except I used regular cheddar instead of white cheddar. Didn't want to pay more for cheese with less color. Makes total sense if you ask me.
It was so yummy right out of the oven while the cheese was still all gooey and warm, and big pat of real butter melting right on top. It was perfect paired with that sauerkraut and kielbasa I made in the crock pot. (Yeah, I couldn't help thinking of Donna when I made that.)

It makes two giant loaves, so the people at work are in for a treat tomorrow!

Hi, Thanks for stopping by my blog! I love beer bread and the fun part of making it is that different kinds of beer make different tasting bread. Its also fun to drink a couple of the beers while you're waiting for the bread!

That looks good. Really good. And I've got 2 smoked sausages in the fridge that I got on sale the other day. Sounds like dinner to me.

That bread looks great! I don't think I have ever made beer bread. I have eaten it at a restaurant in the past and I really enjoyed how moist and delicious it was. I will have to try making some.

The whole meal really looks wonderful!
