Onion Cheese Bread

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.

    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.

    Divided this recipe in 1/2 and baked 1 w/o onions and 1 with 1/2 the onions sauteed. It was good but prefer the one w/o the onions.
