Onion & Cheese Loaf

I wish y’all could smell my kitchen right now. I’ve been working on new recipes today and they all smell so good. The chuck roast I have in my crock pot has made me so hungry that I could have eaten this entire onion & cheese loaf. This is one of the recipes I came up with today and I can’t wait to share some of the others with you next week. This loaf is not heavy, it’s actually very light and it’s really really good. I slathered butter on that heel you see sliced in the photo and I had to seriously restrain from eating another slice. It is to go with supper so I had best set it out of sight so there’s actually some to serve later today.

I started my morning off using some leftover biscuits and made Nannie Hembree’s bread pudding (I shared a video on this a while back). That ended up being mine and Zaylee’s breakfast and watching her enjoy that bread pudding reminded me of when I was her age and Nannie would make it for my cousins and I and we fought over every slice. She made biscuits for supper most of the time and those leftover biscuits would be made into her bread pudding the next day. I have so many memories of my Grandmothers and Great Grandmothers in the kitchen baking all sorts of breads and fixing all sorts of dishes to go along with the breads they were making. If I were at Nannie Polly’s and she had baked a fresh loaf of bread both heel ends would be gone shortly after it came out of the oven. She would have one and I the other slathered with her freshly churned butter. The first slice is the best slice as she would say and no truer words have ever been spoken because I still make sure I get that heel slice while it’s good and warm.
