Cheese Casserole Bread

Cheese Casserole Bread

Elizabeth Yetter

Back in the 1970s people began making no knead casserole breads because they require no hands-on kneading and make less of a mess in the kitchen. Today, people are seeking alternatives to traditional bread kneading due to health restrictions.

This cheese casserole bread recipe makes a wet dough that can be done up by hand or in a mixer. After it’s mixed, the wet dough is allowed to make its first rise. It’s then stirred down and placed in a greased 1.5 quart casserole for its final rising.

Yield: 1 round loaf

Prep Time: 1 hour, 45 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour

Total Time: 2 hours, 45 minutes


  • 1 cup milk, room temperature
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp active dry yeast (1/2 oz.)
  • 1 Tbsp soft butter
  • 1 cup grated hard cheese, your choice
  • 4-1/2 cups bread flour


  1. Mix milk, water, sugar, salt, and yeast in large bowl until yeast is dissolved. Stir in butter and cheese. Stir in flour, one cup at a time. Cover bowl with plastic wrap or clean kitchen towel and let dough sit in warm, draft-free place for 45 minutes.

  2. Uncover dough and stir down. Stir or beat for about 30 seconds. Place dough in greased 1-1/2 quart casserole. Cover and let rise in warm, draft-free place for about 30 minutes or until double in size.

  3. Bake bread at 375 degrees F for about 1 hour or until bread is done. Carefully turn bread out of casserole dish and let cool on rack.

Like I remembered, Member mindwarp75

When my wife and I first got married we found a recipe for cheese casserole bread in a cookbook and it was very good. Unfortunately over the years (31) the book got lost and I have been wanting to try this recipe angain. Finnaly I found it and tried it. I was very happy with except I'm pretty sure the old recipe called for more cheese. So next time I will use 2 cups instead of 1. Thank you for helping me recreate a great comfort food it was sorely missed.
