Made this with chicken and noodles tonight. Took me 10 minutes longer to cook than recipe stated. I think it needed fresh herbs instead of dried and a little more cheese. I double checked the recipe when I noticed it didn't require salt? I didn't add it but MAN did it need it. A little sprinkling on each piece did the trick. Used greek yougurt.

A really good quick bread. I was pressed for time and melted the butter instead of cutting it in; it came out just fine, so will keep doing that!. I omitted the sage otherwise made as stated. I used an 8 inch square pan and it came out just right in 38 min. Half of it is now in the freezer :) Made for Zaar Stars Tag.

Salt needs to be in this recipe; the other reviewers are correct. This bread is flat without salt. I sprinkled REAL SALT on the bread when I had some by itself. When served with tasty meat, it may not be necessary. The bread looks and smells nice; it needs salt in the ingredients list.

You were so lucky the restaurant handed out the recipe. We are so lucky you shared it here. I made this pretty much as written. Cut back on the baking powder by about 1/4 teaspoon and added 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Used a nice tangy Greek yogurt and a sharp cheddar. Completely forgot about the poppy seeds. Oops! That won't happen next time. I'll make this often. Can imagine adding a handful of finely chopped kalamata olives and the green onions others have suggested. Thanks very much for posting.

Great tasting bread that can be enjoyed with many things. I used 1/2 unbleached AP flour and 1/2 whole wheat, med. Cheddar and sour cream for the yogurt (the only yogurt in the house is vanilla which didn't seem like a great choice, lol) and I added two sliced green onions (I had two to use up and this just seemed a natural for them). This made a wonderful late Sunday brunch along with veggie sausage patties and and an organic free range egg. Simple to make, the inside is very soft and tender with a nice crust. YUM!

Quick and delicious! This bread came out soft and moist with a beautiful golden crust and was a winner with the family. Did not even get to take a picture As they devoured it in less time than it took to make it. Would definitely make again. I did replace the butter with melted butter (short on time) and the yogurt (didn't have any) with sour cream and it required exactly 40 minutes to bake and came out beautifully. Love it!

My husband LOVED this and he does not usually share my enthusiasm for bread...really tasty al on its own! Yes, add salt and reduce the baking powder. I used fresh herbs, just chucked in whatever was growing in the garden, and it worked great. As already stated, sift the flour and don't overwork your dough-the cheese and yogurt will make it quite dense.<br/><br/>Very delicious recipe. I will be making this over and over, I'm sure.<br/><br/>Thank you!

Yum! So good! Buttery quick bread that's probably too easy to make. Used plain Greek yogurt and added 1/2 t salt as suggested by other reviewers. Only used 1T poppy seed on top. Would be delicious with any meal. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

This bread is very easy and quick to assemble. It's also very tasty! I followed some reviewers suggestion and cut the soda and the baking powder to a half and added 1 teasp. salt. I used the herbs that I had on hand and sub. parmesan gouda cheese. I had to bake 1 hour.
My bread turned a bit too dense but still very tasty! I guess that the secret to a fluffy bread is to sieve the flour and not to overmix. I am improving ;)
