Cheese and ham loaf

I’ve had a few requests for my cheese and ham loaf recipe. The amounts and directions below are per loaf.

Ingredients
All purpose flour 3 cups
Baking Powder 4 tsp.
Salt 1/2 tsp.
Grated medium or sharp cheddar cheese 1 1/2 cups
Milk 1 1/2 cups
Butter or margarine, melted 2 tbsp.

Directions
Combine flour, baking powder, salt and cheese in large bowl. Stir thoroughly.
Add milk and melted butter. Stir to form soft dough.
Put in greased 9x5x3 inch loaf pan.
Bake in 400F oven for 35 to 40 minutes.
Remove from pan to cool.
Serve with butter

Modifications
You can increase the “cheese gob” factor by grating the cheese thickly or finely, depending on your tastes.

Add different cheeses — I often add a bit of romano cheese.

I’ve also added up to an extra cup of cheese before, and it didn’t seem to change the loaf too much.

I usually grate up garlic coil sausage and add that to the recipe. If I add 1/2 grated sausage, I take away 1/2 of grated cheese to equal things out.

I’ve also added red chili pepper flakes before to add an extra bit of zing 🙂

Enjoy!
