No-Knead Casserole Bread Recipe

"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!"
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + rising Bake: 40 min. YIELD:16 servings


  • 5-1/2 cups all-purpose flour, divided
