Cheesy Cheese Bread

by zesty on February 19, 2009 · 43 comments

Ever crave homemade bread but you don’t have the energy to do it from scratch?  I had this issue on Tuesday – so I decided to haul out the bread maker and let it do the work for me.  I am a little lazy at times or perhaps it’s better to call it efficient.  Neither here nor there, I want to share with you a very nice bread recipe for your bread maker.

Cheesy Cheese Bread sounded delicious when I read it and I had all the ingredients on hand.  What the heck, lets drop the ingredients into the bread maker and let it spin.

Remember with bread maker recipes you have to follow the measurements exactly or you could have a flop.


  • 3/4 Cup Lukewarm Water
  • 1/2 Cup Creamed Cottage Cheese
  • 1/2 Cup Shredded Old Cheddar Cheese
  • 3 Tbsp. Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 2 Tbsp. Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. Butter
  • 1 1/2 Tsp. Salt
  • 3 Cups White Flour
  • 2 Tsp. Yeast


  1. Measure ingredients in order listed into baking pan.
  2. Insert baking pan securely into bread maker; close lid.
  3. Select sweet setting and 1.5 lb Loaf.  Choose light or dark (I chose dark).
  4. Push the start button and let it go.  Time will be 3:50 hours.
  5. Once complete, remove baking pan and allow to cool before slicing.
  6. ENJOY!

Zesty Tip: When using bread maker recipes, be sure to measure exact and ensure that your ingredients are fresh.  Especially flour and yeast.  The slightest adjustment when measuring can throw the process off.

Question of the Day: Do you have a breadmaker and if so – Do you use it frequently?

Have a great Thursday!  We are preparing for a winter storm here yet again.  Talk to you tomorrow.

Take care

mouth… waters… need to have cheese bread… NOW :)


3 VeggieGirl

I’m still intimidated to bake bread, even though I’ve done it 3 times prior, haha :-D


4 Olga

this looks so easy and delicious! Thanks!


5 Mara @ What's For Dinner?

BREAD MAKER! That’s whats missing from our registry!!!


6 Cate

this looks so delicious! perfect for savory french toast…the only thing is that i don’t have a bread machine. sigh. will just have to admire it from afar.


7 HoneyB

This sounds really delicious Cory!


8 Rose


I do have a bread maker, but we have a love/hate relationship.


9 Meg

Oh my goodness! That bread looks so soft! Another winning recipe Zesty!


10 brandi

I do NOT have a breadmaker!

This bread is making me drool.


11 Lisa

Looks delcious! Homemade bread is so good.

Thanks for this great cheesy bread recipe for the machine. I like to add some herbs when I bake cheese bread. Try chives or basil. Also, you can fudge around with the type of cheese/herb mixture. Asagio is great with olives. Cheers!


13 ZestyCook

@godiva – I would definitely say yes you can make it the traditional way but you would have to alter the ingredients. Let me know if you are interested and I can email you the differences.

@ e-rock – Thanks for the extra ideas… i do love herbs in bread and I never thought of asiago cheese.


14 Bob

Oh man, that would have been awesome with some of the egg salad I just made! I don’t have a bread maker, I don’t have enough room for one in my tiny apartment.


15 Beadie @ What I Ate Yesterday

I WISH I had a breadmaker! Can you let my dear husband know ;)


16 Joanne

I have a bread machine and that is usually the way I make our bread. Some people just love the kneeding action associated with making bread and therefore, wouldn’t even THINK of using a bread machine. Me – I just want the finished product and to heck with all the stuff in between.
This weekend I’m trying San Francisco Sourdough bread – even did the sourdough starter from scratch. Wish me luck.

Have a bread machine, but the last few times I used it, the bread was not good. Don’t know if it was me, the machine, or the weather. I got discouraged and put it away, but I think I’ll haul it out again and try the Cheesy Cheese Bread (what a great way to use up some of my cottage cheese; I’m the only one in our household who eats it plain, so this is a good idea.)
Thanks for your recipes. I’m new to your site and am really enjoying.

I have a Panasonic SD-YD250 breadmaker that does an excellent job. Machine bread will never be the same as oven bread, but it’s not bad either. And when you start tweaking and experimenting you can come up with some really really good breads.

I’d like to try and make this in my machine. However, I don’t have a “sweet” setting. I have Basic, Whole Wheat, Multigrain, French, and Rapid. I’m thinking Basic would be the way to go, yes?


19 ZestyCook

@Beadie – I will let him know

@Joanne – Good luck on the sourdough. Let me know how you get along!

@irrevjudith – Thanks for the kind words and keep trying – I have made many a bad loaf

@chisai – Yeah I would go with Basic setting for sure.


20 Matt

My wife and I don’t have a bread maker but this recipe might be the motivation to get one. Looks great and look forward to trying!



21 Lynda

I don’t have a bread machine and now wish I did so I could make this yummy looking cheese bread! However, when you knead the bread dough, you can also work out any frustrations you might have.


22 ZestyCook

@Matt – Yeah I agree – they are pretty inexpensive and are very versatile.

@lynda – haha I do agree on the frustration.


23 Heather McD (Heather Eats Almond Butter)

Dang it. Love bread. Love cheese. No breadmaker!


24 Maya

I used my breadmaker a lot for years..until I got a Kitchen Aid. Your bread looks fluffy and perfect!


25 Margaret

I use my machine at least once a week. Made King Cake last night. Use the dough cycle the most. So ‘efficient’.


26 leslie

Amazing..simply amazing!!!


27 eatingbender

I want…no NEED…a bread maker! I am a big fan of all things bread. Great recipe, Zesty. Bring on the cheesy cheese!


28 Lauren

Anything with “cheese” twice in the title is enough to get my attention :) The bread looks awesome!


29 Nick

Wow that looks good. Super easy too, I gotta find a similar recipe that doesn’t use a bread machine. Btw, I made a similar version to your beer bread the other day and I’ve made like 4 loaves since, awesome stuff!


30 Amanda (Two Boos Who Eat!)

looks so good! I wish I had a breadmaker!


31 Kath

Oh boy!!!


32 thepinkpeppercorn

Oooh! This is irresistible!!!


33 Kevin

It is really hard to beat freshly baked cheesy bread! I like the use of the cottage cheese.


34 Lyn

Oh my goodness, that looks fantastic!


35 Jessie

oh wow that looks really good! super easy to make too


36 maris

Cheese + bread = the perfect combination! This sounds like a great recipe. I’m wondering how I could make this without a bread machine!

We’ve got a bread maker. We have used it in spurts — a lot when the right mixes were available, only to have the machine sit in storage for long periods of time when we got tired of those standard loaves.

Only when we started to try recipes found online did we learn to truly appreciate the machine. Sure, we’ve ended up with a few bricks, a number of supermarket-discount-loaves, and some stuff forbidden by the Geneva Conventions. But we’ve also found some great recipes that have us coming back for more.

Too, there is nothing like waking up to the smell of freshly baked bread.


38 Traina

This is an excellent article! I hope to check back for more


39 Kieffer

That was a great post…I love this site…Thanks


40 Jan-M

Is there ant way with a breadmaker to have the cheese stay gooey…in chucks rather than blended in??? Thanks :)


41 ZestyCook

@Jan-M – that is a tough one! I am not sure about that… maybe you could add a little extra cheese and ensure you eat the bread warm.
