Cheddar and Green Onion Beer Bread!

My prayer is that you all enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving last week! Maybe you found a roll recipe on this blog that you decided to serve......I'd love to hear from you if you did! Let me know which one you chose to serve....I, of course, HAD to serve the "Every Thanksgiving's Oatmeal Rolls", along with an assortment of garlic, cinnamon, pecan and white rolls - I was up and baking bright and early!

Of course, it's not all about the bread....I hope your celebration was one of true joy and thanksgiving. We had our annual "Turkey Bake Off" and, for the first time in years, I won!! My hubby usually wins with his grill-smoked turkey (It IS awesome!). But it wasn't the win that made the day so was family. Everyone was home, which was wonderful. For the first time, Dave and I were the oldest people at the table - We missed Grandma Jo (she passed in February), but we remembered her by fixing her traditional offerings of green bean casserole and ambrosia salad.  It was a gorgeous day here, too, so we were able to spend much of the afternoon outside, throwing footballs, taking walks, etc. There was no rushing off to early "Black Friday" sales here....we just relaxed. 

However, NOW it begins! Shopping, decorating, baking, celebrating....REPEAT! It's a time when super-easy and super-tasty food is fully appreciated! Today's recipe fulfills both - easy and tasty! And, let me add QUICK! I hope you enjoy it in the happy rush of the Christmas season! 

Cheddar and Green Onion Beer Bread!
3 Cups unbleached, all-purpose flour
3 Tbsp. sugar
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
½ tsp. coarsely ground pepper
12 oz. beer (I used an ale)
½ Cup shredded cheddar cheese
3 Tbsp. chopped green onions

Place the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and pepper in the EZ DOH bucket. Crank several times to adequately mix the dry ingredients. Add beer and EZ DOH-it just until ingredients are moistened. Add cheddar cheese and green onions and EZ DOH-it until they are incorporated. Divide and transfer the dough into 2 - 3 1/2 x 7" loaf pans (this is what my pans measured at the base - They aren't full-size 9x5" pans) . Brush with some melted butter. Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes, until golden and the bread tests done in the center. Remove from pans and cool on wire rack
