There's nothing in the world like fresh bread. It has something that's undeniably special about it. The moment you take that first bite is spectacular, a familiar and deeply comforting feeling. The sight of butter slowly melting on top of fresh warm bread is soothing to the soul. It only makes sense that people all over the world have a universal love for bread. It's one of the oldest prepared foods, dating back some 30,000 years.
This is a basic yeast-risen bread, but with the addition of herbs and cheddar cheese, it takes the bread to whole new level. The steam from the slow cooker keeps the bread fluffy and moist, while the bottom and sides form the perfect crust. This recipe is as simple and delicious as it gets. There's no need to knead the dough. Simply mix, let it rise, fold and shape, and then into the slow cooker it goes.
