Savory Cheese and Chive Bread - French Fridays with Dorie
Savory Cheese and Chive Bread  

This week, the French Fridays with Dorie group made Savory Cheese and Chive Bread from Dorie Greenspan's cookbook Around my French Table.

Savory Cheese and Chive Bread - French Fridays with Dorie
I thought this was going to be a yeast bread and I wouldn't have time to make it, but luckily it was a simple savory quick bread. You can use a bunch of different cheeses and I used some sharp cheddar (those easy peasy pre-shredded varieties), fresh chives and California walnuts.

Being part of Foodbuzz, I received free bottles of the new Crisco line of olive oils. They have Light, Pure and Extra Virgin Olive Oils. I used the Extra Virgin olive oil in this recipe!

The bread is super simple to make...dry and wet ingredients are quickly mixed, but not overmixed and the walnuts, chives and cheese are folded into the thick batter. It all goes into a bread pan and 35 minutes later...you have a yummy savory bread.

I made mine with gruyere and emmental. I plan on making one with cheddar next time. I see that you used cheddar. How did you like it?

That is a great looking quick bread, and I love your photos. Tricia
and I tried our bread with different types of cheese to compare.
We enjoyed them both.

Your loaf looks great! I love how you used the paper (parchment) for easy lifting of the bread from the pan.
