Cheese and Onion Bread

8 Reviews

About our cheese & onion bread recipe

This cheese and onion loaf will brighten up any lunchtime snack. The creamy cheese and subtle onion flavours in the bread taste marvellous as an accompaniment to soup on a cold winters day.

Cheese and onion is a classic British flavour combination kneaded together into a wholesome crusty loaf.

  1. Step 1:

    Preheat the oven to 200ºC (190ºC fan, gas mark 6).

    Cover with oiled cling film or a damp tea towel and leave to rise in a warm place for 1 hour or until doubled in size.

    Scatter the cheese over the bread and bake for 20 – 25 minutes.
