I got this from recipegoldmine.com. It doesn't give a submitter, so I don't know who to give credit to! The description says this bread is great to use for grilled cheese and that sounds delicious to me!

This made a dense bread that had a hint of tomato. We were really happy with the spices, as they weren't overpowering. It was a very nice balance. DH (who doesn't eat cheese) enjoyed slices of warm bread with butter, while the rest of us made grilled cheese sandwiches. Oh yum! I used my Kitchenaid Mixer for the mixing & kneading parts; using about one extra cup of flour. The only concern with this recipe is that the instructions don't say when to add the water. I nearly forgot it altogether but when I realized it I added it while mixing the 4th cup of flour. Thanks for sharing, Suzie_Q! Made for the Fall 2009 Adopt-A-Tag game. :)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat V-8 and butter until butter melts. Add sugar, salt, herbs, ketchup, and cheese. Cool to lukewarm.
  2. Add lukewarm tomato mixture to 3 cups flour and yeast. Beat until smooth. Gradually add more flour until you have a soft workable dough. Knead 8 to 10 minutes until smooth and elastic. Place in greased bowl, let rise until doubled (1 1/2 hours).
  3. Punch down and divide in half. Let rest 10 minutes, covered. Shape into loaves and place in well greased bread pans. Cover and let rise until doubled again (1 hour).
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F for 25 to 35 minutes.
