Cheddar Olive Loaf Recipe

Cheddar Olive Loaf Recipe

Made in the bread machine, this moist loaf has nice texture and great flavor. The cheese also gives the bread an appealing light orange tint. It smells so good while baking that I can hardly wait until it's done and cool enough to slice! -Catherine Dawe, Kent, Ohio
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 3 hours YIELD:16 servings

  • 3/4 cup pimiento-stuffed olives, well drained and sliced


  • 1. In bread machine pan, place the first six ingredients in order suggested by manufacturer. Select basic bread setting. Choose crust, color and loaf size if available. Bake according to bread machine directions (check dough after 5 minutes of mixing; add 1 to 2 tablespoons of water or flour if needed).

Just the right amount of cheesy goodness (I used a white, extra-sharp cheddar, as it is always found in my 'fridge), combined with the light flavor of green olives in a perfectly-textured bread.
This bread is great both warm (out of the machine) and room temperature.
I'll be making this bread again and again!"
