I've heard tell of those who find the football game secondary to the tailgate party. I'm one of those people. Don't get me wrong; I love a good football game, but the fun had with others on a crisp fall day sharing our favorite hearty fall foods just can't be beat.

What you'll need

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups finely shredded cheddar, I like sharp cheddar
  • 1 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda


Makes 2 loaves

How to make it

  1. Mix butter and sugar until fluffy.
  2. Add eggs one at a time, blending after each addition.
  3. Sift together flours, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Add to egg mixture alternately with milk. Mix well.
  4. Add cheese and nuts and blend until combined.
  5. Spoon into two greased and floured 9x5 loaf pans.
  6. Bake at 350° F for 1 hour until a toothpick inserted in the center of each loaf comes out clean.
