Pepper Cheese Bread

Oh boy does this sound good! Although, knowing me, I’d make it with red peppers because they are a little sweeter than the green. Or a combination. Or if you don’t like peppers you could make it with onion, or nothing at all, just the cheese. Mmm, do what you like, that’s what I always do. :-)

  1. This recipe looks ripe for conversion to a bread machine application. I’m definitely gonna try it. I’m thinking of swapping out the green peppers for Anaheim chilies, and maybe doing pepper jack instead of cheddar. I wonder if you could just do 5 cups of whole wheat flour instead of the AP/wheat germ combo?


    • I don’t know enough about the AP/wheat germ combo to comment but I encourage you to try it and report back, heh. My mom had a bread machine, maybe she will comment.
