Cheesy Mustard Beer Bread

This post is a bit delayed--I made this bread for the Super Bowl. I saw this recipe from Smitten Kitchen, and I got really excited! I modified it quite a bit based on what I had in my kitchen, what beer I like, and what type of cheese I can eat.

This bread made my kitchen smell like a cheesy brewery, just to warn you. It was a really good smell for about two minutes, but then it just kinda smelled bad.

Here's my modified recipe. Visit Smitten Kitchen for the assembly instructions! I also brushed some extra mustard on top after it cooled for a few minutes.

Blueberry Cinnamon Swirl Bread

You know the Cinnamon Raisin Swirl loaves of bread you can get at the store (or make yourself)? Well, I decided to twist it up some and use blueberries instead of raisins.

I made the dough in my breadmaker, then lightly kneaded in some whole, fresh blueberries. I stretched out the whole thing, put some cinnamon sugar on top, rolled it up, and baked it in a loaf pan. It turned out WONDERFULLY, and I ate it every day for breakfast for a week, toasted with some margarine on top.
