The bagel recipes I saw in a magazine inspired me to try creating my own. I've been making them like crazy ever since! My whole wheat version dotted with cranberries is a favorite.—Tami Kuehl, Loup City, Nebraska
Debbie Hunt of Anthony, Kansas likes to add tasty Grape-Nuts cereal to this hearty loaf. "This moist bread is so easy that I make it at least twice a week," she says. "Once, I put it together in the middle of the night when I suddenly remembered that I didn't have any bread for breakfast."
"Grilled cheese sandwiches are especially good made with moist slices from this pretty corn-flecked loaf," promises Lola Gangwer of Burgoon, Ohio. "For a milder chili taste, use green chilies in place of the jalapenos."
"I've been using a bread machine for 4 years now and wonder how I ever got along without it," marvels Jim Bodle of Clockville, New York. He shares this recipe for a moist, pretty-colored loaf. Flavorful slices of the mild cheese bread are great for sandwiches.
This moist peanut butter bread is terrific toasted and served with jelly or used in sandwiches. "Make a grilled cheese, but substitute peanut butter for the cheese and add sliced banana," suggests Barbara Hileman of Cortland, Ohio. "The gooey treat goes well with a glass of cold milk."
From Nicholville, New York, Marian Shelton shares this light loaf that gets its subtle sweetness from pineapple juice. "My daughter loves this bread," she reports. "I frequently bake it after we've enjoyed a ham dinner, so we can use it for ham sandwiches."
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!
