"You'll love this cheddar casserole bread, promises Peggy Key of Grant, Alabama. "It is one of the easiest yeast breads to make. And since it calls for rapid-rise yeast, you don't have to wait long to enjoy it!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 30, 2014

"This is so good and very easy to make. The first time I made it exactly as the recipe called for. Delicious-nice crust on top and a very dense bread inside. The second time I left out the onion but added some sliced green onions and chives for a bit more color. I also added 1 tsp of dill and 1/4 tsp of garlic powder. We ate almost the entire loaf that night......"

"Made this yesterday for the first time. It's a very dense bread, but it was liked by all at dinner. Tastes just as good the next day at room temperature with a bit of butter on it."
