Here is a quick savory bread that was a hit at work. If you like this bread, you might also enjoy this recipe for Dilly Bread. I served it with the Healthy Chicken Parmesan.

Cheese, Olive and Buttermilk Herb Bread (a version of a recipe by Sugar & Everything Nice)

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp dry mustard powder
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan
  • 1/4 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup green olives, sliced
  • 8 pieces sundried tomatoes, sliced thinly
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup onion, finely minced
  • 1/8 cup fresh parsley, minced
  • 2 tsp thyme leaves
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 1/4 cup buttermilk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease loaf pan well. Mix together flour, baking powder, soda, salt, pepper and mustard powder into a large bowl. Add cheeses, olives, sundried tomatoes, onion, parsley and thyme and mix well.

Whisk together edds, oil and buttermilk until well combined. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and stir together, forming a thick batter. Scrape dough into greased pan. Bake for 40 – 45 minutes or until a fine skewer inserted in the middle of the loaf comes out clean. When done, let loaf rest in pan for 5 minutes before letting cool on a wire rack. Serve with soft butter. Enjoy!
