Pimento Cheese Bread

Pull up a chair and grab yourself a cup of whatever ya like…..

I assume you’re here for the bread

There’s a few warm ups that must be done before we march on to the main event

1.) Grab some comfy clothes… all of us have them….pj pants and a hoodie are my comfies of choice

b.) Clear your schedule for the remainder of the day

3.) Remind yourself that bread is a food group that, like all the others, MUST be filled! {Ok….GRAIN is the food group and there are a lot of other items in it….but for now it’s just BREAD}

Have you ever been to a restaurant that served AMAZING bread??

Well…. Red Lobster has their Cheddar Bay Biscuits, Panera has their fantastic Asiago Cheese Bread……

And Modern Mrs. Cleaver has her Pimento Cheese Bread

{I wouldn’t mind being known for my bread}

Once you’ve finished your warm ups’, bake up a loaf or 3 and curl up next to this bread….

with buttah….

and maybe a bowl of something with a sop-able gravy!


2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 teaspoon dill weed

1 cup buttermilk

1/2 cup mayo

1 egg, slightly beaten

8 ounces shredded cheddar

1/2 onion, diced

4 oz. canned diced green chilies

4 ounces sliced pimento

1 tablespoon melted butter


Preheat oven to 425 degrees

Liberally grease bottom and sides of a bread loaf pan

{here comes the hard part}

Dump ALL the ingredients, except the butter,  in a large bowl and mix until thoroughly combined. Once everything is moistened, schoop into the prepared loaf pan and smooth out the top.

{ok…not so difficult}

Drizzle the melted butter over top and place in the oven.

Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the top is golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Let the pan set on a cooling rack for 15 minutes. Run a knife around the edges of the bread and turn out of the pan. Allow to cool “somewhat” before slicing into slabs. I say “somewhat” because I can NEVER allow things to cool completely before diving in.

Here’s what you’re in for……

IMG_1455-1I’m making sure my grain group is fully covered today…. I’ll work on the sweets group later :)

Signing Off,

Modern Mrs. Cleaver
