Yesterday I found a recipe on Pinterest that I wanted to try, because it sounded delightful. Quick Sour Cream Cheese Bread from The Family Kitchen is super easy, and yes, very quick.
I served it with dinner last night, and sadly, I forgot to take a photo before serving. Not that it matters much, it came out looking EXACTLY like the photo on the source website.
As I do with all new recipes I make it as directed the first time. That gives me a chance to try it and make any alterations in the future.
The recipe says that you can use yogurt or sour cream, and I imagine that if one went with greek yogurt this would be a healthier option. The sour cream option was perfect for me to use up that not-expired-but-still-soup-consistency sour cream in the fridge; you know, that stuff that is no longer good for slopping all over your potatoes.
As for the taste test, well, meh. It feels like it’s trying to be a giant butter biscuit and failing. We had guests (what a better time to try a new recipe, huh?), and the consensus was that it tasted to buttery. Which is interesting since there is very very little butter in it. But I get what they were saying.
Suggestions at the end of the recipe include adding diced ham or bacon to it; I wholeheartedly agree with this one. This bread was practically screaming for ham.
If I make this in the future, and I likely will; I’m not willing to give up on it yet, I’ll make it as muffins with ham or bacon as a breakfast treat. I may also add a bit of mustard and more cayenne to add a little zip.
As is, I rate this a 3/5. But it has possibilities.
