FFwD – Savory Cheese and Chive Bread
One of my biggest baking pet peeves is quick breads that donâ€™t fill up a loaf pan. Kind of like that ^. I mean, what is that? Iâ€™m starting to wonder if my loaf pans are abnormally wide or something because the other members of French Fridays with Dorie all have normal sized bread.
I donâ€™t get it.
What I do get is the deliciousness that
is was this savory bread thatâ€™s loaded with cheese (shredded AND cubed for extra gooeyness) and chives. Are there two things that go together better than cheese and chives? Nope, didnâ€™t think so. I was afraid of adding the 1/2 cup of chopped chives that the recipe called for so I used about half that and ended up wishing Iâ€™d gone for the full 1/2 cup.
The bread is tender and soft but the outside gets a little crustier than a regular quick bread thanks to all the bubbly cheese. Itâ€™s perfection in a (tiny) loaf and becomes even better when itâ€™s toasted and slathered in butter.
(As always, this recipe comes from Around My French Table and the members of FFwD want to encourage you to purchase the book â€“ itâ€™s well worth it!)
