Cheesy Tomato Quick Bread

I was having another one of those "what's for dinner" days. I ran through a bunch of options in my head and either they didn't really appeal to me or they required too many ingredients I didn't currently have in the house. Most of the time, when that happens, I end up with a breakfast for dinner kind of plan.

Cheesy Tomato Quick Bread
So I ran through some "brinner" ideas and decided that what I could really go for was eggs, a salad and some bread. But I wanted the bread to be a little special but not too much work. Quick breads are the best! I usually make sweet versions like banana bread, pumpkin bread, etc. but I've also done savory versions. Time to check the pantry to see what on hand. I had cheese, fresh parsley and canned diced tomatoes and that combination sounded delicious and definitely a little special.

I usually have cans of diced Hunt's tomatoes in my pantry and they come in handy so often. I like that Hunt's peels their tomatoes with FlashSteam, which uses steam from simple hot water; not * chemicals (just look for the FlashSteam logo on the label). And the tomatoes were the perfect flavor boost for my cheesy bread. Perfect for an easy dinner and, quite frankly, for breakfast and lunch the next day, too. Enjoy!

  1. Excellent timing as I have been wanting to make a savoury bread for some time now. Please share the size can of tomatoes you used? Do you think I could add some garlic powder and maybe some freeze-dried basil in it? I have that on hand.

    1. I used the 14oz. can and yes, I think garlic powder and dried basil will add very good flavor. Enjoy!

  2. This looks so good! Can't wait to make it for my family!


We'd love to hear from you!
