Onion Cheese Bread Recipe

Biscuit mix is the handy base for this tender quick bread that never fails to disappear in a snap! The savory bread goes well with any meat or soup, but it's fine alone, too. Cheddar cheese and parsley give the wedges pretty color.

  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 4 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 3 cups biscuit/baking mix

  • 1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 6 teaspoons dried parsley flakes, divided

"I only made half the recipe. it was easy to divide and turned out great. The bread is moist and tasty. I made it to serve with chile. Not only did I enjoy it but my 12 and 13 year old grandsons also liked the bread. This recipe is a keeper."
