Sometimes I get so focused on making the main dish of a meal, that everything else just goes by the wayside. As a result, I'm always on the lookout for simple, easy side dishes to accompany my simple, easy main dishes. This is one I found that whipped up quickly, had the light flaky texture of biscuits, with the robust flavor of dill and cheddar. It rounded out our meal just perfectly!
2 cups flour
1 Tbs. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 Tbs. sugar
1/4 cup butter
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
2 tsp. dill weed
3/4 cup milk
In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Cut in butter until crumbly; stir in cheddar and dill. In a small bowl, beat egg and milk; pour into dry ingredients and stir just until moistened. (Batter will be very thick--similar to a biscuit dough). Don't overwork the dough.
Place dough into greased 8-in. x 4-in. x 2-in. loaf pan. Bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. cool in pan 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack. Makes 1 loaf.
