As we head into Autumn, the inner baker in me starts to awaken. I suddenly have this strong
desire need to reach for the flour and bake a loaf of bread. Oh, who am I kidding? My inner baker is awake all year long! Either way, I was craving some tasty bread recently, so I hopped into the kitchen and whipped up this Cheesy Everything Bread.
One word: fantastic. This bread is absolutely fantastic. It’s essentially a cheesy quick bread topped with everything bagel seasoning. There’s so much flavor packed into this loaf! From the buttery, cheesy bread itself to the toasted seeds and seasonings on top, a slice of this Cheesy Everything Bread is a great way to welcome the return of fall baking season.
Cheesy Everything Bread
For the topping on this bread, I made my own version of everything bagel seasoning. You can certainly use a store-bought seasoning mix if you’d like. I often make my own as I get to play around with the proportions – and I get to include caraway seeds (an essential element of everything bagel seasoning in my opinion).
The bread recipe itself is one I’ve made many times before. It’s essentially a cheesy quick bread as it relies on baking powder and baking soda instead of yeast. And the shredded cheese throughout? Yum!
This savory bread is perfect alongside late summer salads or early autumn soups. If you slice it thinly, it makes for great bookends on an egg sandwich – trust me, I ate half of this loaf that way! Oh, and it’s pretty fantastic by itself when you warm it up slightly in a toaster oven!
For this Cheesy Everything Bread, I used a block of Cabot’s Medium Yellow Cheddar Cheese. I love this cheese as it has a smooth, buttery texture with a hint of sharpness. This is one of the staple Cabot cheeses that I always make sure to keep in our fridge. It’s great for snacking and baking!
Truthfully, though, you could use almost any type of Cabot cheese for this recipe. I could see the extra sharpness from Seriously Sharp Cheddar Cheese working well here. Alternatively, I could see the creamy, spicy Pepper Jack Cheese or even Habanero Cheddar adding a fun kick to this bread. (Or a mix of ½ Medium Yellow Cheddar and ½ Pepper Jack would be tasty!)
Or for an entirely different flavor profile, Cabot’s Horseradish Cheddar would be tasty in this recipe – can you imagine how good that would be if you toasted up cubes of that bread to use as salad croutons!?
If you’ve seen Cabot’s cheeses in a store near you, but haven’t had the chance to try them yet, then put ’em on your shopping list now! Cabot is a co-operative creamery owned by hundreds of farm families in New York and New England. And their cheeses regularly win major national and international awards! Check their product finder to see what Cabot cheeses are available in your area.
No matter which cheese you use in this recipe, I really hope you enjoy this Cheesy Everything Bread as much as we do. It’s an easy recipe, and it’s a fantastic way to welcome in the autumn baking season. Happy baking!

Hey Ramya! Yes, feel free to substitute ingredients as needed. 🙂 This is a really fun recipe, and that seasoning mixture on top adds a lot of flavor!
Ohh, yum!! This awesome bread looks super cheesy and full of flavour! Love the everything bagel seasoning on the top – what a nice touch, David. Gorgeous idea and, as always, every time I read one of your Cabot cheese recipes, I am sorry we can’t get them here in Australia – all the different types of cheese sound delightful.
Ah, I wish Cabot was able to ship their cheeses down to Australia, too! They’re so good, Katerina! 🙂 I do recommend making this bread sometime – it’s easy and it’s packed with flavor! Thanks for the kind words!
David, this bread looks seriously terrific and delicious! And it must be this way, loaded with all that cheese. I love the idea to use Everything Bagel topping and partially the addition of caraway seeds. By some means, they’re not as common and popular as in Europe, but it’s a great addition to many bread recipes, in my book.
This bread truly is terrific and delicious, Ben! It’s easy to make, and it’s packed with flavor. And those caraway seeds? They’re a requirement for a good everything topping if you ask me!
David, I have a confession to make. I’ve never had an everything bagel. I was always a bagel purest and went plain with no topping. But it doesn’t matter because you can’t find a decent bagel around these parts. Perhaps I should widen my horizon and make up your cheesy everything loaf.
I’m with you on baking, as soon as the soup and stew season begins I start baking again. It’s chilly here, so the baking season is upon us so I’ll just have to give this a go.
What!? You’ve never had an everything bagel? I’m not gonna lie here, Ron. They weren’t my favorite at first just because I always wanted sweeter flavors in the morning. (We usually get bagels in the morning.) However, Laura finally converted me from blueberry to everything. I still enjoy a good blueberry bagel + cream cheese from time to time, but everything is my go-to now! And this bread? Delicious! It would be an excellent side dish alongside a bowl of soup on a chilly fall day! (P.S. In other news, I gave Laura a copy of Pappyland for her birthday. Both of us are excited to read it – thanks for the recommendation!)
I look forward to hearing what you guys thought of the read.
I’d love a slice of this cheesy, spicy bread for any meal of the day or an afternoon snack! I think it would be divine alongside a steaming bowl of tomato soup!
This bread would indeed be fantastic next to a bowl of tomato soup – I like where you’re going with that though, Marissa!
i love savoury breads david and this sounds wonderful! CHeese makes it even better.
Oh, this is one heck of a tasty savory bread, Sherry! I hope you get a chance to bake it – and your kitchen will smell amazing while this is in the oven, too! 🙂
We love EBTB seasoning but have never thought to pair it with cheese! This looks delicious!
The combination of flavors with the cheesy bread and the everything seasoning is SO good, Michelle! I highly recommend baking up a loaf of this. And as Marissa pointed out, a slice of this bread would be fantastic next to a bowl of tomato soup on a chilly fall day!
All those flavourful seeds and cheese? Oh yeah, I know this is gonna be awesome! I can’t wait to give this one a try, especially with soup season upon us. This would be so tasty with a big bowl of soup on a cold day. And now I’m hungry!! 😉
Oh, this bread would be fantastic next to a bowl of soup, Dawn! Soup season is quickly arriving here, too. Talk about comfort food at its best right here! 🙂
First time I heard of this bread, looks like something I would really love.
There is so much flavor in this bread, Raymund! I love the shredded cheese throughout the loaf, and the everything topping just takes it to a whole new level!
This bread looks absolutely delicious! Cabot Seriously Sharp Cheddar is one of my go-to cheeses, so adding that to the mix sounds SO good. And then everything seasoning on top?! YUM!
Oh, I totally hear ya on Cabot’s Seriously Sharp Cheddar, Nicole! I always make sure to keep at least 2-3 bars of that one on hand. It made for a great addition to this bread – I highly recommend it! How good would this be alongside a bowl of tomato soup?? Yum!
