Triple Cheese and Beer Quick Bread - Merry Christmas!




How on earth is it Christmas week already? I have to say I am uber ready. I am beyond excited to watch my child's face light up with every present she opens. The gift of giving is so easily felt when you gift to a child...they can't fake happiness, it's true from ear to ear as they flash those pearly whites.





So I would love to list out some things that my family is happy about, it's been a good year for us.

PS - This triple cheese beer bread is a fabulous gift for friends or family, or a nice addition to a pat of butter and warm fire or soup or cheese or butter or soup...yummmmm





INGREDIENTS (makes 2)
Delightfully borrowed from CookingBread dot com
{Printable Recipe}

6 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon dry mustard
1 tablespoon Italian dried herbs
1 1/2 cups sour cream
2 cups room temp beer
1/2 cup tomato juice
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 beaten eggs
2 cup or 6 oz Gruyere cheese
1 cup or 3 oz Parmesan cheese
2 cups or 6 oz white cheddar cheese


DIRECTIONS

Grate all your cheese into separate bowls. In a large bowl combine the flour, baking powder, slat, dried mustard and the Italian herbs. Using a whist mix them all together. Remove a 1/ 2 cup of the white cheddar and 1/2 cup of the Gruyere cheese and a 1/4 cup of the Parmesan and set aside for the topping of the bread. Add the rest of the cheeses to the flour mixture. Use your fingers to mix in the cheese so all the cheese is coated.





In a separate bowl combine the beer, sour cream, tomato juice, eggs and Worcestershire sauce and mix well. Add the liquid to the dry ingredients and mix with a spatula. Do not over mix. Pour the mixture into 2 greased 9x5 loaf pans and press down with a spatula or hands.






Sprinkle the cheese on top that you set aside. Place the loaves into a preheated 350 degree oven and bake for 50 -55 minutes or till done. Allow to cool in the pans for 15 minutes before removing them from the pans. Place on a wire rack to cool.

Enjoy with a pat of butter or slice of cheese...I'm pregnant yo - I realize there is a ton of cheese already in there but....a little more is not going to hurt you.

Merry Christmas, from my family to yours.

Chris said...

Wait....are you telling me he prefers golf over boobs AND beer? I must be seriously missing something about golf or his priorities are seriously skewed.

Loving this beer bread, mainly because it doesn't involve yeast. Alexis always handles the yeast breads, I'm always afraid I won't bloom the yeast right and kill it.
