SCD Recipe: 90-Second Cheese Bread

I made this microwavfe cheese bread on a whim when I was trying to think of something to go with my leftover chicken for lunch. As of this writing we are all in the middle of self-isolation for the Covid-19 pandemic and coming up with new ideas for meals, with whatever ingredients are on hand, has become a way of life.

I was worried that this cheese bread might be too moist, but it came out perfectly! It was light and fluffy. It can be eaten right out of the mug or you can take it out and cut it up for sandwiches. I even tried toasting it and it came out great. It kind of squishes down a little bit, which made it prefect for a sandwich.

I topped with Everything But the Bagel seasoning and it was the perfect punch of extra flavor. I think garlic would also go great with this, but I didn’t have any to try.

You can experiment with different flavors and cheeses – let me know what you think!
