Cheddar Jalapeno Bread Sticks
Make a pot of chilli a meal, while you are simmering the chilli,
mix up the Cheddar Jalapeno Beer Bread, with beer or club soda,
will work with sprite. Spread on a cookie sheet, to about an inch
to an inch and a half thick, take your spatula and make indentions
for cutting the bread sticks when they are done, then baste the
top with melted butter, next sprinkle with grated cheddar cheese.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes till not doughy when
tested with a toothpick. ENJOY!
Other suggestions for Bread Sticks: Using Italian Herb and
Cheese Beer Bread Mix, and sprinkle with Parmesan and
Mozzerella Cheese. Serve with Spaghetti or Lasagna.
Cheddar Bacon topped with Cheddar Cheese . Honey whole
wheat would be good just basted with butter, before and
after baking. Your imagination is your limit!
Beer Bread Bowls for Soup:
Mix beer bread as directed, put in a round cake pan, or two smaller
round oven proof pans if you have them on hand for individual servings.
Bake according to directions and let cool to room temperature. Slice off
top and reserve, cut a round circle 2 inches from the outside and bottom
to hollow out bowl, reserve this bread and cube to be dipped in the soup.
Baste inside the bowl and the outside as well with olive oil, sprinkle with
parmesan cheese if desired and bake in a 350 degree oven for 20
minutes until starting to brown. This will seal the bread so that it will
hold the soup. Ready to pour in the soup and serve.
Another idea is to put the beer bread mixture in muffin tins, 2/3 full
and bake, follow the rest of the directions on basting and baking, this
will allow you to have individual, dip bowls or salad bowls, even soup
bowls if you use the mammoth muffin tins. You can find them at Walmart.
What a neat idea for a special occasion. Would be great with soups for
