Cheese n' Onion Potato Breadby Róisín Matthews
This is so easy and so tasty, I highly recommend making it to serve with soup. You can easily prep the dough while your soup is cooking, and then just wait as your kitchen fills with beautiful aromas and your appetite grows!
The day I took this photo, my kids devoured a half loaf of this with a bowl of broccoli soup for supper. There's nothing quite as satisfying as watching my children enjoy a meal like this!

The recipe for this bread is based on an old recipe for goats cheese bread by Delia Smith. I've adapted it as follows:
100g Plain Flour
75g Wholemeal Flour
100g Grated Cheddar
1/2 white onion, finely sliced
1 large potato (around 175g)
1 heaped tsp baking powder
2 tbsp milk
Preheat oven to 170C. Mix the flours and baking powder together in a bowl. Grate the potato directly in to the flour. I don't peel the potato but you can if you like. Add the grated cheddar and onion and toss all together. Make a well in the centre. Crack in the egg and add the milk. Mix lightly in to a sticky dough. Place on a floured baking tray, form in to a circle and flatten out with your hands until about 1. 5 inches thick. Place in the centre of the oven and bake for 45mins or so until golden brown and sounds hollow when tapped.
Cool on a wire tray. Try not to eat the whole thing yourself ;)
