Easy Cheddar Bread

Looking over my older posts, I see that I have been a little remiss in listing my bread recipes, so I'm going to do a short series of some of my favorites, starting with Cheddar Bread.

This particular one is quick and easy and fulfills my self-imposed rule of including at least one herb.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

3 c. all-purpose flour
4 t. baking powder
1 T. sugar
1/2 t. onion salt
1/2 t. dried oregano
1/4 t. dry mustard
1 1/4 c. shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 egg, well beaten
1 c. milk
1 T. butter, melted

Combine flour, baking powder, sugar, onion, salt, oregano, dry mustard, and cheese in a bowl;  set aside.
Combine egg, milk, and butter; add all at once to dry ingredients, stirring just until moistened.
Spread batter in a greased 6 1/2 in x 4 1/2 in loaf pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.

YIELD 1 loaf
