Chive and Cheese Beer Bread

From BHG Special Interest: Tailgating

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups AP flour
  • 2 tbs sugar
  • 1 tbs baking powder
  • 2 tbs fresh chives, chopped
  • 1 teas salt
  • 3/4 teas baking soda
  • 1/2 cup shredded chaddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded Monteray Jack cheese with jalapeno peppers

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8×4 loaf pan; set aside.

In a large bowl whisk together the flour through the cheese. Slowly stir in the beer and mix until just combined. Don’t over mix. The batter will be very thick.

Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.

Bake 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack in pan for 10 minutes. Remove from pan and cool completely.

Serve with a coarse mustard. Can be stored, tightly wrapped in aluminium foil for up to 2 days or frozen up to one month.

 

   

 


 

Three-Cheese Beer Soup

From BHG Special Interest: Tailgating

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded white cheddar
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped onion, 1 medium onion
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped carrot, 1 medium carrot
  • 1/4 cup sliced scallions, about 2 whole scallions
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup AP flour
  • 1/2 teas dry mustard
  • 5 cups chicken broth
  • 1 12oz can beer
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen diced hash brown potatoes
  • 1 1/2 cup small broccoli florets, one head
  • 10 slices bacon, crisp cooked, drained well and chopped
  • 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese (I knew you were doubting my three cheeses by now)
  • A few dashes of botteled hot sauce
  • 1/2 teas Worcestershire sauce

Preparation:

Allow the cheddar cheeses to sit at room temperature for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a large Dutch oven, heat butter over medium heat until melted. Add onion, carrot, green onions and garlic. Cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally.

Stir in flour and dry mustard. The mixture will thicken. Slowly add in the broth, whisking while you pour. We’re going for no lumps from the flour here. Cook and stir occasionally until bubbling. Add beer, cream, potatoes and broccoli. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 5 minutes.

Gradually stir in the cheddar cheeses, stirring until cheese has melted into the soup. Stir in the bacon, Parmesan cheese, hot sauce, and Worcestershire sauce. Cook for another five minutes before serving.


   

Because what’s dinner without dessert ;)

 

Have a great weekend!

  1. OK we are not watching any sport here but I’m dying to try every dishes in this post :)

  2. That 3 cheese beer soup looks ah-mazing! I’ve been thinking about doing a cheddar-type beer soup here lately, and I think you’ve just solved that problem for me!

  3. Ok, we are ready for football, but ours, I mean for soccer…and that bread will be the glory for all of us. Not the soup because we a re in summer, but I will bookmark it to make it as soon as winter comes.

  4. Oh cheese and beer, what a great combination. It’s like chocolate and peanut butter.

  5. Mmmmm…both the bread and soup look delish!!! Perfect for the Super Bowl!

  6. I’ll watch for the commercials mostly but if someone was giving me that beer bread and soup I’d choose a team and cheer just so I could get seconds!

  7. The beer soup is a total winner! This whole collection is amazing!

  8. I love football but I don’t care who wins this game. It would be nice if it was close and really, really good football, but when it all comes down to it; eh.

    We will be eating some good food though. These dishes look delicious, especially that soup. Wow.

  9. That beer and cheese bread sounds amazing!

  12. Even after eating a full lunch, stopping by your blog always has a way of making me hungry! Never fails! Can’t wait to whip up some of these for game day (and yes, I will just be watching for the commercials!)

  13. I’m not a football fan but definitely fan of all these foods you make! Beer bread and soup sounds VERY attempting for everyone! I’m still trying your BBQ chicken first though. =)

  14. I’m dying to try that beer bread recipe – usually bread just takes so looong, but this looks so easy!

  15. I can go for both the bread AND the soup right now. The football game is optional, right? :)

  16. Mmmm the cheese bread would make an awesome pastrami sandwich and the soup looks awesome :)
    Take care…
