Cheesy Onion Beer Bread

Cheese and Onion Beer Bread: homemade and easy to make!

Beer bread is one of those items I used to purchase from Tastefully Simple and Pampered Chef. We ate it often too! Then I googled the recipe years ago, and realized how easy it is to make at home (FOR MUCH CHEAPER)!

This time though we kicked it up a notch with some cheddar cheese and green onion. Oh my. I’m envisioning other great flavors as well. (such as: remove onion and replace with 2 seeded and diced jalapenos, serve with chili)

Not a fan of beer? Don’t keep it in the house? That’s okay. I have made it with 7up as well, it just ends up a little bit denser (I think it might have something to do with lack of yeast????).

Cheesy Onion Beer Bread

Ingredients:

  • 3 cup flour
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 2 green onions, sliced thin
  • 12 oz beer
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted

Directions:

  1. In large mixing bowl mix flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, cheese and green onions. Using as few strokes as possible, mix in the beer until moistened.
  2. Pour thick batter into a greased loaf pan. Drizzle melted butter over the top.
  3. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 50 minutes. Remove and cool 10 minutes before removing from pan. Enjoy!

    Mmm, I love beer bread. Just can’t bring myself to buy beer for it (too expensive!). Your cheese and onion version is awfully tempting though.

    This would be perfect along side a good thick chili!

    I bake Challahs (Jewish bread) each week, but never tried beer-bread.

    I love any kind of cheese bread. This sounds wonderful.

    I go to a pot luck and they never have any butter. I brought butter once for bread but it disappeared. This is a perfect bread for that pot luck because it looks very moist-so no butter needed. Beer bread does sound so much more tastier with cheese and onions in it-yum. Have a great afternoon.

    WOW, that sounds delicious! I’m German and love my beer breads, and cheese on onion sound like utter bliss :) Looks wonderful!

    Wow, SO easy! This is awesome! I love the cheese and onion in here too…but like you said, the possibilities would be endless here. Yummers!

    I am a faithful TS beer bread lover! I have to say though, I have never made a variation with cheese or anything else. Did you know you can add mountain dew and cinnamon chips to make a sweet bread with it? Have you ever tried that with the homemade version?

    YUM! This looks like something I could just sit and eat half of in one sitting!

    This looks delicious and simple to make. Two important factors in my book! :) I pinned this on my recipes to try board.

    Does it matter what kind of beer you use? I have stone IPA at the house right now.. Not sure if that has too strong of a taste. What do you think?

  24. posted Feb 4, 2012 at 8:15 pm

    As for the kind of beer to use, I usually use an amber or light variety. I haven’t used anything dark, but you could certainly try.

      Don’t tell the Tastefully Simple consultants!! Actually one of my good friends is a TS seller and she knows already! Glad you enjoyed the bread.

    How much is 12oz beer in liquid measure. I’m not American. Can you put this in millilitres or fluid ounces? Your measurements are different to mine. Thanks.

    • posted Nov 16, 2013 at 2:49 pm

      12oz beer is 12 fluid ounces.

        12 US ounces equals 340 grams.

    This recipe is really good. I subbed pepper jack cheese to spice things up a bit. I followed the directions, cooking time and everything came out perfect. Thanks for the recipe.

      You’re welcome! Love the addition of pepper jack cheese.
