1. Cranberry Orange Nut Bread
Think cranberries and oranges might be a bit too zesty together? Think again! This bread recipe incorporates traditional bread ingredients with a cranberry orange combo twist. On top of that, there are walnuts in there!
The recipe recommends using fresh cranberries, but you can use dried cranberries and it’ll come out just as good. You need orange juice and orange zest, so buy an orange! You should be able to get what you need with just one, and it will save you the cost of buying orange zest in the seasoning section. In about an hour, you can have this tangy bread ready. Let it cool, or slice off a warm piece! Either way, it will not disappoint.

2. Cinnamon Swirl Zucchini Pumpkin Bread
There are a lot of words to grasp here, but they all add up to delicious. Who knew bread recipes could combine to form one super bread? First, you mix the wet ingredients and the pumpkin, then you add the zucchini. Next, you pour it all into a bread pan, mix up the cinnamon swirl, and pour it on top of the bread. The swirl sinks a little into the bread mixture, meaning the bread is basically cinnamon and sugar-filled. In about an hour, you have a warm, sweet, heavenly bread ready to marry a glass of milk and be consumed by you.

9. Swiss Onion Bread
As we well know, not all bread recipes are sweet. This particular recipe is more on the hardy side, as it includes caramelized onions and swiss cheese rolled up in traditional bread dough with a dash of dry mustard. This recipe does take some time, as the dough needs to rise for about two hours before baking, so make sure to plan accordingly! After it has risen, spread the onions and cheese over the flattened dough, roll it up, and bake it. When it is about halfway done baking, add a bunch of cheese and onions to the top, too. Once the bread sounds hollow, it is time to let it cool. The result is a delicious bread that goes great with pasta or soup, and did I hear next level Rueben sandwiches?

10. Green Tomato Bread
It can be odd seeing green bread as it can remind you of mold, but some bread recipes just don’t care. Thankfully, this one isn’t too green. (That’s the avocado bread.) Filled with chopped green tomatoes, pecans, and oddly enough, a dash of vanilla, this interesting bread recipe is actually really good. The unique flavor of green tomatoes combined with the traditional pan loaf bread recipe makes this a good snack bread that is ready in about an hour. Slap on some butter and enjoy!
