Schools back in and everyone is excited for Football it seems.

Between trying to think about what to cook for easy weekends, and what you can make and take for that Tailgate coming soon, we have an answer.

I often get request for easy simple recipes. The two we are sharing with you today are just that. Both recipes can be served right out of the oven piping hot, or wrapped up and served on your tailgate buffet. Cheesy Beer Bread is so fast and simple to prepare. Don’t let the name of the recipe scare you, you cannot taste the beer at all. It slices up nicely, and would be wonderful served anytime warm or cold. Cranberry Orange Corn bread is so good. It is another simple idea.

Cut it in squares and serve with butter or just eat it plain.

Cheesy Beer Bread

3 cups self rising white flour

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

3/4 cup white sugar

1 (12) ounce beer

1/2 stick melted butter

In a mixing bowl mix together flour, cheese, sugar, and beer. Pour into a sprayed loaf pan. Drizzle melted butter over top of batter. Bake 350° 40 minutes. Serve piping hot out of the oven or cooled.

Another idea is after you pour on the melted butter before baking the bread sprinkle a little shredded cheese on top. Sounds wonderful! You could probably use a different shredded cheese to put a twist on it.

Delicious warm or cooled.
