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!

Those flavors.. parmesan and cheddar, how wonderfully savory!
I love cheese. I love olives. I love bread. I think this is the perfect bread for me.
The bread sounds terrific. It sounds like it would be a good base for a bread stuffing.
What a good idea!!! I will have to try that… if there is any left over next time. 🙂
Perhaps an extra loaf while your baking.

How lovely. I love quick breads..and olives…and herbs…yeah, so this looks totally perfect.
Thank you. It went over very well at work. I imagine you could tweak the recipe by changing to olives, herbs, cheeses, etc.
