Super soft and deliciously warm Parmesan Chive Quick Bread that’s SO stinkin’ easy to make! It’s a wonderful addition to the dinner table!
Bread is a weakness for many — especially when it’s warm, soft and slathered with a mountain of butter. Right? It was just a few years ago that I made a commitment to give up bread for a short period of time.
I failed that miserably! While I’m usually quite great at sticking to commitments, if the commitment involves giving up warm, deliciously soft bread… I’m toast (literally – pun intended!)
Bread is one of those things that fares well with any meal. Serve piled high with butter next to your main dish. Or, eat it warm as part of your breakfast. I’m not going to fib anyone – I have noshed on an entire loaf myself after the kids have gone to sleep. Next to a big, fat juicy steak, it literally is the most comforting of all foods.
Parmesan Chive Quick Bread
Over the last few years I have made all kinds of bread. But this parmesan chive quick bread is perhaps one of the fastest ways to get my bread “fix” without dealing with a sourdough starter or a long rise time.
Simply get started with simple ingredients – baking powder, flour, and salt. Cut in your butter until the mixture resembles course crumbs. Then stir in the milk, fresh chives, and grated parmesan. Pour into a greased bread dish and sprinkle with a little extra parmesan before baking.
Over the next 20-25 minutes, you’ll smell fresh baked Parmesan Chive Quick Bread wafting through your house as you salivate at the oven. (Maybe that’s just me? Or do others do that too?)
I like to wait until the bread is cool to remove from the bread pan. Then I smother my pieces in butter and serve next to my main dish – whatever that is.
