I liked this. It was more dense than I thought it would be but I like the flavor. I used a honey brown lager and could taste it in the bread. I will fix this again. It went well with potato soup.
Quick, easy & with a unique falvor of onions & cheese & a faint hint of beer. Hod some warm from the oven & then served it buttered & broiled with a chicken supper. Nice change of pace.
This is a really good bread. I like it toasted, spread with butter, and dipped in marinara sauce...mmm, great snack! Didn't have green onions, so I substituted regular onion, and I don't think it made much of a difference. I liked it because it was quick; don't have to knead or wait for it to rise.
