Garlic & Cheddar Pipeline Porter Beer Bread

Don’t you just love the smell of bread baking in the oven?  I love it!!!  I don’t always have time to make bread from scratch though.  So I often pull out my beer bread recipe & play with it to fit the dish we are having.  I always love the ease of this particular recipe because it’s ready to go in the oven so quickly that it often takes longer for the oven to heat than it does to prepare it for  baking.  You really can’t beat that when it comes to fresh homemade bread.  It’s the best side with dinner because you don’t have to plan hours ahead to have it with your meal.  So much flavor too.  I love having it fresh & hot out of the oven.

This went so well with our soup the other night- OH MY!

I decided to use this great little IPA – Pipeline Porter from the Kona Brewing Company. The flavor it gives to the bread is great.
