    Here's one I heard about but have not tried, yet.
    12 ounces V-8 instead of beer, 1 crushed clove of
    garlic, 2 tsp. or 1 tbsp. Itialian Seasoning mix.
    6 to 8 ounces mozzarella cheese cut into very small
    cubes. Don't grate it as you want the chunks.
    Mix all ingredients together and bake according to box instructions. Cool before serving. You can reheat before serving, but you must let it cool after baking to set cheese into bread.

    Beer Bread Recipe Thought

    Hmmm? V8...Beer...V8...Beer

    I think I'll stick with the Beer ;) . I know it cooks out and all, but just the smell of V8 makes my stomach flipflop. I have made it with sprite & garlic. I didn't put enough garlic though. It still tasted good, just not "garlicy" enough.

    for personal reasons I won't buy beer and I won't have it in my house. However, i have made the beer bread using carbonated strawberry water. It was very good, but more like a dessert than a bread. The beer gives the bread that yeasty taste that people like. All of the alcohol cooks out. I have heard of people using coke instead of the beer.

    At every show that I have done beer bread and dips at, I have sold at least 6 boxes of beer bread and at least 4 loaf stones. Everyone LOVES it!

    I love the beer bread and sell quite a bit of it at my shows...it goes great with the All Purpose Dill Dip! The recipe variation on the box with salsa and cheddar cheese is also quite good and a great alternative if you don't want to use beer.

  8. I just made my first loaf of beer bread last night. It was FABULOUS! Just spread some strawberry jam on it and it's like a dessert.

    For those of you who have served it at shows, do you make it ahead of time and just pass it around, or do you actually do a cooking demo during the show? I'm only asking because it does take quite awhile to bake so I wasn't sure. I plan to have samples at my next show.

    Do it in the mini-loaf pan instead of the loaf pan. When I make the bread at home I find that it lasts longer if there are small loaves instead of the one large one.

    You could also divide the bread mix in two and put half with 6 oz. beer and half with 6 oz. V-8 or soda or whatever you want. Then you'd get two different flavors and choices for the guests to try with just one recipe!
