I love all the “nooks and crannies” that gather whatever you spread on them.

English Muffin Bread has all those fabulous nooks and crannies. I’ve been making it for a few years now but just recently figured out that you can add things to it! Sweet or savory….whatever you like. This one is a savory recipe that tastes beyond amazing with the Bacon Jam I recently made. Try it. I dare you.

Cheddar-Scallion English Muffin Bread

Recipe courtesy: Woman’s Day, November 2004

  • 3 Tbsp cornmeal
  • 6 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup  finely chopped scallions
  • 2 packages active dry yeast
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp ground red pepper (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 6 ounces extra-sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded (1 1/2 cups)
  • Nonstick spray


  1. Lightly coat two 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 x 2 1/4-in. loaf pans with nonstick spray. Dust each with 1 1/2 Tbsp cornmeal.
  2. Mix 3 cups flour, the scallions, yeast, salt, sugar, red pepper and baking soda in a large bowl.
  3. Heat milk and water until warm (105°F to 115°F). Stir into flour mixture, then stir in remaining 3 cups flour and 1 1/4 cups cheese.
  4. Divide dough evenly between pans (dough is very sticky). Lightly coat dough with nonstick spray then spray 2 sheets wax paper and invert over pans. Let rise in a warm draft-free place 45 minutes or until doubled.
  5. Heat oven to 400°F. Bake loaves 20 to 25 minutes until golden. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup cheese and bake 5 minutes longer. Cool in pans on a wire rack 5 minutes before removing from pans to cool completely. Wrap tightly.

Yesterday afternoon my parents came in to town. We hung out and ordered Leucadia Pizza for dinner.

I had a piece of veggie pizza and some Caesar salad.

This morning the kiddos wanted pancakes for breakfast. It sounded perfect for a lazy Sunday morning!

Lazy is right. I’m still in my pajamas and it’s almost dinner time. I can’t remember the last time I stayed in pjs all day!

Lunch was leftover pizza and some more salad.

 When was the last time you stayed in your pajamas all day?


  1. If I don't have anywhere to go on the weekends, I never get out of my pj's - and within 5 minutes of coming home I put them on - I am the queen of sleep pants - I think I have at least 12 pair!

    Hope you had fun with the rents!
